Mary In The Pink

Two years ago I reported on St Matthew-in-the-City's Christmas poster "Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow", which caused outrage in Auckland, New Zealand (CLICK). Reverend Glynn Cardy has done it again. This time the church billboard shows a worried Virgin Mary holding a positive pregnancy test: Mary is in the Pink (title link). The Rev. wanted his festive campaign to avoid all that "trite" and "sentimental" slush which surrounds Christmas. Maybe it's time he became an atheist. Or a pagan. There's nothing trite or sentimental about green men, robins, holly and mistletoe.
