Which I take as, he got excited by seeing a baby suckle from his/her mothers breasts. Issues? Yup.

Like someone else said - Jesus was breastfed.
I agree with you here. I think a lot of times people think it is okay to ask women who are nursing to leave because it is such a taboo issue.

Well, honestly, as a church founder, you wouldn't want to do anything that would cause any male to stumble, would you? Men are men and I haven't met a man not attracted to boobs.

I understand the hole argument of putting a blanket over his head instead of your childs, it's a free world, yadda yadda, I get it. However, as a founder of a ~church~ not a mall, not walmart, but a church, do you want to put a stumbling block there for him?

I personally don't find it a big deal to use a nursing cover. Baby can still see you, you can see baby.

ETA: When I'm nursing a child, my chest is the least s*xiest thing to me. I don't want them touched in that way, however, for my husband, they're still hot, he's still very attracted to them! Not trying to defend the man, but it could have been the fact that a boob was there, not necessarily the child nursing from it.

I know....I'm in the minority here.

Not all babies will nurse covered up. Instead they will fuss & throw a fit, tossing themselves around, which could really cause an exposed boob when they jerk the cover off.. LOL.

I find it hard to believe that a healthy male cannot differentiate his desire for breasts based on what they are doing. If that were true, then this same man would get turned on by his mother's breasts, his sister's breasts, his cousin's breasts, etc. Men can separate. They are not savages. This man seemingly doesn't have the self-control to keep his thoughts "pure". That is unfortunate. But it doesn't mean that we should take that perversion of his and impose it on something that isn't perverse, such as breastfeeding. Perhaps if he was raised around more women who breastfed he wouldn't have such a complex about breast = sex.

I've seen mamas post videos before of their children who will nurse quietly until they are covered, and THEN they become a distraction.

Very true, not all babies will tolerate a nursing cover. I haven't read through the thread, did she say that's an issue?
