So the question posed this week was "would you participate in a nurse in?" No. I had to actually think about this one. It's more like a gut reaction, the no. So I had to search out as to why I wouldn't.
I think nurse ins are more to make a political point. They are like rallies or protest marches. They don't serve any other purpose.
I want to be very clear. I think protest marches and rallies are fine. They are for political arenas. And they should be used for things that are political.
Someone at a business asking a mother to move or cover up etc etc, isn't a political arena (unless it's in a government building, but that's rare). It's a business. Often times the reason the person asks is 1) they are a disgusted patron 2) they are a disgusted patron chickening out so they talk to management so management appeals 3) management is disgusted 4) employee is disgusted or 5) owner is disgusted.
In any case, it's not political...it's personal. If it's against the law to ask, then it's against the law. End of story. The law is clearly in the mother's favor. The business was wrong.
As a Christian, to have a nurse in is like punishing the business rather than forgiving. If we want to change them, ask them to have a training session where the law is discussed. Otherwise it serves no purpose to hold a nurse in other than to further embarrass and draw attention to the business's mistake (and in most cases it's an employee or an employee caving to an ignorant customer).
If the law is not in your favor as a nursing mother, then the business isn't where you should be protesting at. You should be lobbying your representatives to have a bill drafted and laws to be passed. It's not the business's fault that there is nothing to protect the mother. Again different arena. Therefore having a nurse in because there is no law doesn't serve any purpose other than to draw a media circus and punish/embarrass the business instead of forgive.
If the business repeatedly does not uphold the law, well that's when the police should be called and the courts should hold the business liable. It, again, serves no purpose to hold a nurse in.
So no, I wouldn't be a part of a nurse in. I would, however, use the government to my advantage, but I wouldn't hold a nurse in on a business. In my point of view, it's not Christ-like.
So what do you think?
