Would you call a mother a whore?

Breastfeeding is natural. It’s not a sexualized activity. It’s a natural part of life. Would you call a woman a whore or a stripper for breasting feeding her child in public? I know what I do… give the mother and child space and move along. What would Jesus do? Well, one of his representatives on earth called breastfeeding lewd, he called the woman a stripper, and cast her out of his ever-so-hip biker church.

A Georgia woman was told to “cover up and go away” when she started breastfeeding her newborn child during a church service. The pastor ordered Nirvana Jennette to feed her baby in the bathroom, and when she objected he told her that breastfeeding is lewd and compared her to a stripper.

The pastor asked Jennette to not return to the church, which Jennette describes as a “biker church” with a congregation made up of people who ride motorcycles.

What would Jesus do eh? Why do I even ask the question?

Our identy is shown though our responses as well as behaviors and well this guy openly admitted a woman feeding her babe is a turn on.

On the other hand, i wouldnt have chosen to breastfeed in front if others.. but thats me.

I'm trying to imagine the type of biker who would go to such an overly sensitive, far-too-easily offended church like that.

I can't recall ever meeting a biker like that. You need a thick skin to ride bikes; people are always trying to kill you, so someone breastfeeding their kid shouldn't be a concern. Oh well.

What she should have said to the pastor was..."When you take your meals in the bathroom, I'll start feeding my baby there"
