Now there’s three words we never thought we’d see in a sentence together. It sounds like a terrible CS Lewis novel. Well, let’s explain.
It started when Barack Obama voiced his support of gay marriage. “At a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” he said. Obama said it was his daughters’ friends whose parents are in same-sex relationships that lead to his evolved view.
Next up was Bristol Palin (Sarah Palin’s daughter, that is.) She didn’t agree with the president and wrote Facebook post claiming a child needs a father and a mother. “We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home,” she wrote.
And that didn’t sit so well with Jersey Shore star, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, who pointed out that Bristol was a single mother. She tweeted:
Here’s the video that explains it all:
And this is Bristol’s post:
“Is anyone really surprised by the fact that President Obama came out of the closet for gay marriage? What was most surprising is when he explained how his position (supposedly) “evolved,” by talking to his wife and daughters.
Let’s pause for just one second. When Christian women run for high office, people inevitably bring up the question of submission. Once, Michele Bachmann, for example, was asked during a debate, “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”
People automatically assume that a Christian female President isn’t capable of making decisions without her spouse’s stamp of approval. (I should add female Republican candidates –liberal women don’t get the same kind of questions.)
So are all those reporters who feared excessive family intervention in the White House all up in arms over the President’s announcement yesterday? Um. Not quite.
Liberals everywhere are applauding him for his bravery and his wisdom.
So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?
And that’s not all she has to say. Read the full post here.
