It is amazing how people can use their religion for political expediency. I could not believe how forgiving the religious right was of the out of wedlock teenage pregnancy of Governor Palin’s daughter.
If this had been Senator Obama’s “teenage daughter”, we would have heard the words “lack of family values” ad nauseam. Not only are they embracing her, but they are saying the fact that she will have the baby and marry her “Baby Daddy” is very honorable and says this shows they are an average American family.
This is one of the most hypocritical things I have seen the religious right do to date. It is early, so keep your eyes open and expect the unexpected.
