question in my head

I was just speaking to a co-worker about the churches who have moved the tabernacle to the back of the church, somewhere in a closet.

We had also been discussing Mass ad orientem, when the priest faces the same direction as the people and leads them in worship of the Father.

Which caused me to pose the question (aloud, actually, not in my head), “Why do the same people who have a problem with the priest having his back to the people not have a problem having their backs to Jesus!?”
