Jonathan Bartley, in Ekklesia, notes that rants against Wallace and Gromit on UK Christmas stamps have begun to appear and the Archbishop of Canterbury has been asked to take action.
... the Daily Express [is] first out of the blocks carrying the expected rant against 'secular' Christmas stamps with the headline Royal Mail bans religion....
... apparently “church leaders are furious with Royal Mail bosses” because they are following their usual policy - which everyone except the tabloids and the odd parish priest seems to know - of alternating new editions of religiously themed stamps every other year.
Religiously themed stamps are of course on sale every year and always available. As the article itself makes clear, the Royal Mail have distributed tens of millions of the Madonna and Child stamps to go on sale alongside the Wallace and Gromit stamps.
According to the Daily Express:
... the Archbishop of Canterbury was being asked to take action, just two days before the stamps go on sale.
