British Postal Service Refuses to Deliver “Offensive” Christian CDs

From the UK comes another good reason to let the US Postal Service finally die already:

Postal workers refused to deliver CDs of Bible readings after deciding they were ‘offensive material’.

Several churches had paid for discs with recordings of St Mark’s Gospel to be produced to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

They were due to be delivered to all households on the Channel Island of Jersey, but church leaders were stunned when they were told postal workers would not handle the 45,000 CDs.

The reason: Christianity might offend people (i.e., moonbats and Muslims).

Volunteers stepped forward to deliver the CDs, proving yet again that we need coercive government much less often than we’ve been led to believe.

Meanwhile, bureaucrats bleat that it was all a mistake. At least they’re still sensitive to bad press — for now.
