Christian Postage?

Saturday I went to the Bacon Street post office for stamps to mail an invitation to a fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union. I was told that the only stamps they had were "holiday stamps" -- stamps adorned with Christmas tree ornaments.

Well, that's sweet. Except I wanted to do a business mailing ... to a group of people that includes, probably, the highest proportion of Jewish, AND Muslim, AND "non-believing" members of any group in America.

Set aside the issue that my audience was ACLU members -- people who are committed, in fact, to freedom of religious expression. Shouldn't ANY business have the option of using the U.S. Postal service to communicate with their customers (including Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and non-believers) without paying to put an image that is specific to Christianity on the envelope?
