I just recently attended a protestant wedding of my protestant relative at a non-denominational chapel in a resort area. I have 2 kids: one is 5 years old and another is 3 years old. The prominent protestant pastor specifically notified the wedding event organizer not to allow any kids under 7 years old to enter the chapel. Because of this, I ended up taking care of my kids during that 1.5 hours wedding ceremony outside the chapel while my wife participated in the ceremony because the groom is her sibling.
I assume the protestant pastor wanted the wedding ceremony to be free from the kids’ noise. Under any circumstances, is this charitable according to the Christian principles or maybe this is common and a non-issue at all since it’s just the kids.
Thanks for your opinion.
