James Dobson, self-righteous theocratic founder of Focus on the Family, says that he'll be praying for the Palin family and he's proud that Bristol has decided to keep her baby, even though she got pregnant out of wedlock.
Gary Bauer, president of the right-wing Christian America Values organization, says he wants to support and encourage Gov. Sarah Palin and her family. "Bristol Palin and her family understand that a new life has been created. The commitment to bring that life into the world is a testament to their pro-life philosophy. I commend them for the example they are setting for other women in crisis pregnancies."
Tony Perkins, president of another right-wing Christian group called the Family Research Council, made this statement: "Unfortunately, teenage pregnancy has become all too common in today's society regardless of a family's economic or social status. It is a problem that we remain committed to reducing through encouraging young people to practice abstinence.
"Fortunately, Bristol is following her mother and father's example of choosing life in the midst of a difficult situation. We are committed to praying for Bristol and her husband-to-be and the entire Palin family as they walk through a very private matter in the eyes of the public."
Question: What would be the response of these anointed representatives of the Almighty if the pregnant person out-of-wedlock were the daughter of one of the Democratic candidates? Do you think that they would offer such kind words of solace and comfort and offer to send up prayers to their god in heaven on that pregnant person's behalf?
Or, do you think they would immediately climb on their self-righteous horse and proclaim to the world that this is exactly what can be expected from liberals and pro-choice people and people who want sex education in the public schools?
Those are rhetorical questions. You know damn well what the answers are!
