Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice President-wannabe Sarah Palin is blasting President Obama on his views of marriage equality.
In his explanation of why he’s for same-sex marriage, at one point, the President mentioned that his two daughters, Sasha and Malia, asked why their friends with same-sex parents don’t have the same rights and are not treated equal as other families.
That didn’t set well with the single mom, who has never been married and who was pregnant at 17. (Before you blast me, there is nothing wrong with single parents — I wish that my mother had been one — and teenagers can grow into great parents, including Bristol. However, they may not be the best judges on marriage!)
Palin says, “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”
WTF??? Bristol, now that you’re an adult, let’s talk. I have two issues with those statements.
You say, “that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking”. I gather you’re talking about the Bible? First off, I’ve only read some of it and I’m not an expert on the book, but isn’t that the same one that implies or states that you shouldn’t have premarital sex? Just asking!
And secondly, your comment, “We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”
Your baby daddy, Levi Johnston, is probably a good father and we all know he’s hot. I hope he turns out to be a great dad to his other child that he’s expecting with his other unwed girlfriend.
Bristol went on to say, “Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.”
I’m not going to take too much offense to that comment because it’s more political, except for the “Glee” part.
Maybe if your parents watched that show with you when you were 17 and explained Quinn Fabray’s teen pregnancy to you, you might not have been the poster child for hypocrisy. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those people who say people should wait until you’re married to have sex, but I would have told you to use protection.
I wasted all the time on the Palins that I want to for one day.
P.S. I know that Todd Palin will get an alert that Sarah’s name was mentioned online, so I hope he doesn’t get too mad at me for speaking the truth.
