Greeting Cards For Heretics

Earlier this week, it was reported that Hallmark has started selling unemployment sympathy cards. I guess it's a nice way to show someone who's lost their job that you care - although I have to think that they'd rather get a new job than a card, but hey. It's the thought that counts.

But then I realized...there are no cards for womynpreests and politicians who have ex-communicated themselves. Sure, it's a small niche market, but it's one that's growing. Some folks have gotten automatic ex-communications - like the womynpreests, for example - while others have been told not to present themselves for communion - such as former rep Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island. Did anyone think to send him a card? I don't believe so.

Maybe it's an idea whose time has come. Here are four suggestions - for the womynpreest or politician in your life - each one showing the outside of the card and its corresponding heartfelt message inside.
