|Bristol & Tripp Palin|
From little Palin Jr., Bristol, writing on her blog at Patheos (as if there weren’t already enough reasons to avoid that place, the Friendly Atheist notwithstanding) in response to President Obama’s announcement of support for same-sex marriage:
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.
In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.
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 sure the President would like to thank you for the parenting advice, historically ignorant 15-minute-of-famer who shills for abstinence as an unwed teen mother!
She even compares Obama purportedly seeking advice from his wife and children to Christian women being ordered by their faith to submit themselves to their husbands. Free cookies to anyone who can figure out what the relation is.
