SECULARIZING RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS
Catalyst June Issue 1997
The secularization of religious holidays has been on-going for some time now, but it is the position of the Catholic League that every opportunity to reverse this trend must be taken. That is why it recently appealed to those involved in the Christmas and Easter Seal campaigns to reconsider past practices.
In a letter to the head of the American Lung Association, the league expressed dismay at the organization’s decision to refrain from using religious images in the annual Christmas Seal campaign. A similar letter was sent to the head of Easter Seals.
In short, we are asking that the original intent of the holidays be given due recognition by restoring religious images to the stamps.
