This doesn’t help the argument for Saturday delivery
Just in time for Easter, everyone in our zip code (at least) received today via @USPS, a free book, The Great Controversy: How Will It End?.
Unsolicited religious propaganda is really irritating, and when the first chapter is called “Destruction of Jerusalem,” it gets my goat. Postal carriers also didn’t seem thrilled about lugging the boxes of books and delivering them. Talking to one carrier in our Chelsea neighborhood, he said they had to deliver them even if they didn’t want to and pointed me to a pile of already rejected books in a trash heap, noting: “What a waste.”
Our copy didn’t come with a note for context, but the book is published by Remnant Publications, a ministry that specializes in Christian books. A quick query only found that the book, originally written by Ellen White, a founder of Seventh Day Adventist, had some of the material lifted by Jehovah’s Witnesses or something like that. Seems like the publisher is looking to distribute 10 million copies of this oeuvre. Remnant seems to be based in Coldwater, MI and their toll-free number if you want to complain about the unsolicited mail and recycling waste is (800) 423-1319.
Complaining to the US Post Office might also help ((800-275-8777) but I’m sure they were paid to deliver this stuff and depend on direct mail for revenue. But if this is what is going to come, I’d rather not get mail on Saturday.
