After sticking my neck out and baring all to the world (please note the Very Big Grin on my face as I say that), I feel I must assure my reader that I understand the difficult position pastors are in, trying to keep peace between warring factions … uh, bickering children … uh, members who disagree on various issues. I do not in any way blame my pastor for how he handled it. I feel rather sorry for him, that he has this to deal with on top of other things, which I’m sure are far more important.
And I don’t mean this as a slam against mothers who couldn’t breastfeed for various reasons. Our society isn’t conducive to “close” mothering in general, let alone breastfeeding, despite all the flap we hear about attachment parenting.
All right, done for the night. *g*
