Blessed pink flamingoes


So I just noticed that The Bahamas issued three stamps in honour of the World Day of Prayer last Friday.


Whilst I remain sceptical of prayer and religion in general, what I REALLY can’t understand is the presence of “Blessed” pink flamingoes in the second one. Feels like something from Under the Dome if you ask me.


And yes, I also find the first one rather demeaning. It’s all fine and dandy that Mary Magdalene felt like washing Jesus’ feet and wiping them with her hair that one time, but putting it on a postage stamp and labeling it “Never Forget How to Serve” is like saying women should be washing men’s feet all the time.

As if.
