Diana got stamps in the United Kindgom, but I believe as a foreign member of royalty, she won't appear on U.S. stamps.

I don't really know much about the Mother Teresa stamp, but I will say that stuff about religion isn't the only area where the Government sometimes breaks it's own rules.

Don't really care about the stamps though..I won't be buying any. I don't really collect stamps, well I did kind of in the 90's when they had the classic Looney Tunes characters on the stamps, but I think I left those at my parents. Next time I buy stamps, I will probably just buy a book of the ones with the Liberty bells at Walmart, because I could care less about what is printed on something I am only using to mail my bills with.

They can put who ever the hell they want on stamps as far as I'm concerned. I'll never see 'em because if I have any physical mail to send, I run it through the postal meter at work. It's not that I'm that cheap, it's just more convenient.
(So I'm not cheap, I'm lazy? Meh...)

Did the Catholics ever get around to making Theresa a Saint? Seems like it'd be a good PR move for 'em.

All I have to say is that if she gets a stamp, I think it's only appropriate that Charles Darwin gets one. Because evolution has been invaluable to biology and medical sciences and breakthroughs. MANY lives have been saved with the knowledge of evolution.

(Of course, he wasn't the first to propose evolution, but he is the one to find the driving force. He really kicked it all off.)

Evolution is more reasonable and rational to believe than creationism, despite the fact that it's only a theory because of how long the process takes. However, all evidence points towards it, so it's safe to say that evolution is the real deal.

I know lots of people who don't believe in creationism, but they believe that a god set the 'formula' for evolution [as well as everything else]. I think that's way more rational than believing that everything has always existed in its current form, but many public schools, even in this day and age, teach children that a god created everything the way it exists today. I think that is an overlooked form of child abuse.

No. That's going to take a while. We might be long dead by the time she comes up for sainthood.

Will,I have a question..And no I don't mean this as an attack of any kind. I am just curious. What criteria does the church take into consideration before naming someone as a saint?

This page should explain it better than I can: Making saints

tl;dr version:
1. After a candidate's death, the community of believers in which the candidate lived thinks he or she should become a saint, so they start a cause to make it so.
2. The local bishop investigates the candidate's life and makes sure any miracles attributed to the candidate have no medical explanations - say a person is suddenly cured of terminal cancer. Is there a medical explanation for this? If there is, it's no miracle, and the investigation moves on.
3. The local bishop asks other bishops nearby if the candidate is well-known. If so, then the candidate is submitted for beatification along with a claim of a miracle. If the claim checks out and the candidate's life is historically important, he or she can be called blessed.
4. A blessed person can then be submitted for sainthood. A second miracle is sought and the blessed's reputation for holiness should by then be worldwide. If those check out, then the candidate becomes a saint.

Of course, there are many many more saints around than the Church has records for, and these are known to God and to individuals or small groups who knew him or her.

Mother Teresa was put on a fast track to sainthood, but much of the money her order received could have been put to better use lifting people out of poverty instead of just ministering to them, and for that her cause is being held up. She is currently "blessed."

I see that this thread no longer has "Fuck your church" attached to it...

What a shame.

Well, not loving organized religion is one thing, but maybe entitling a thread "Organized religion, f*ck your church", on a board where people of all different beliefs post, is going a step too far. You atheists don't wanna look like haters do you? Infact, since you guys say you care so much about gays being oppressed and such, why don't you go sign this petition that my gay friend brought to my attention?

If you are going to complain so much about religion and hypocrisy and all that, at least complain to someone who is being really hypocritic.

side effects include: suicide bombings, unnecessary wars, senseless punishments, really annoyingly brainwashed little children, getting offended when someone makes fun of religion... and the occasion sudden realization that everything you been led to believe is a giant and massive lie perpetrated to keep idiots like you fearful of imaginary gods and under control.
