They were giving out daffodils in church this morning. Kids with mothers were served first. I wheeled Ailz up to the step with Fabrizio on her lap to get a bunch for Ourdert. There were plenty left over and in the end the girl guides were going through the church handing them out to everyone. |
The preacher talked about the baby Moses- and how his life was saved by the women who "mothered" him. She got in a crafty point about how the Israelites were immigrants in Egypt and that's why Pharaoah ordered the killing of all the boy babies- to save Egyptian culture from being "swamped". She steered clear of the racist buzz words. I haven't.
There was a far-right sticker- that wasn't there last week- on a post outside the church. It was taking a smack at asylum seekers. Ourdert is an asylum seeker. Someone had already given it a good scratching and I finished the job.
