Catholics have more fun: baptism by squirt gun

Covid-19 physical distancing has sparked a new trend among Catholics with a sense of humor: baptism by water pistol.

The telltale sign that this child is a girl might not be the christening gown, but the pink water gun. Interesting too, because historically pink was associated with the masculine (it was considered a variant of red) and blue was attributed to the feminine (because The Virgin Mary was most often depicted wearing blue). So this just goes to show that the Catholic church can, in fact, to some degree, change with the times.
