The American Family Association isn’t about to descend from the imaginary peaks of its moral high ground for a few bucks.

Testing out the organization’s boundaries, a reader of the blog Wonkette, “TK,” sent a $10 donation in an envelope stamped with Harvey Milk.


And I suppose it’s good they refused the letter — if an organization is going to spew antigay bile they should at least actually believe in their nonsensical ramblings. Even when offered a crisp Hamilton.

Then again, Hamilton did set up the National Bank (socialist) and was pushed to resign following an embarrassing extramarital affair (sodomite).

OK, it was only a check for $10 in the envelope, but you never know.

Here’s what TK had to say:

I thought their credibility could be purchased for $10. If only they’d set their non-gay pride aside, they could have purchased 22 non-Harvey Milk stamps with that much.

Doesn’t the AFA care for the patriotic civic servants at the USPS? Those who had to walk this poor Harvey Milk envelope back to me in a socialistic manner? The LEAST the AFA could have done was put another stamp on it to pay the offending donation back to me. Perhaps with the Anita Bryant stamp?

The AFA had previously vowed to boycott the entire USPS over the Milk stamp, though somehow we doubt they’d turn down a donation from a never-gonna-happen stamp with Bryant’s sorry mug.
