In the debate over gay marriage, I’ve heard a lot of calls to keep the church out of the bedroom. In other words, the church shouldn’t have any control over what you do in the privacy of your bedroom.
Modern Girl says that’s not enough. She wants to keep the church out of all the rooms in her house:
Should the church be in the kitchen?
… Do I want the Catholic church telling me I shouldn’t eat meat on Fridays? No. I think the church should stay out of the kitchen. That’s our private space.
Should the church be in living room?
That’s where we watch our movies and films about sinful things. That’s where we listen to cds about sinful things, and where we entertain company with sinful things like alcohol…I think the church should stay out of the living room. That’s our private space.
Right on. In fact, they should stop invading your personal space wherever you go. As long as you’re not hurting anybody else, do as you please. Don’t let the church interfere.
