Bristol Palin Slams President Over Gay Marriage. And We Care Because?

May 11, 2012 08:45 AM by Shayla Perry

Maybe we’re still a little upset about the fact that she made it so far on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, or that there’s a possibility she could end up in the cast of next season’s Dancing With The Stars All-Stars. But something about Bristol Palin‘s blog expressing her disdain over President Obama‘s stance on gay marriage has a LOT of people fired up. Oh, right! It was probably the single mother’s line about kids doing “better growing up in a mother/father home.” Even when the father is Levi Johnston? Really?!

On Thursday, Bristol Palin, who you may remember from Dancing With The Stars and that small presidential election in 2008, ripped into the President (via her blog), for allowing his daughters to influence his stance on same-sex marriage, writing, “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 their 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,” adding, “Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”

Yes, and “ideally,” it also helps if the mother and father aren’t constantly slamming each other in the media and in books where they detail their sexual encounters. But, you know, to each his own.

Of course, many people had a lot to say about Bristol’s blog.

Jersey Shore‘s JWoww tweeted: “Bristol should keep her uneducated ignorant mouth shut. If UR living in the past u wouldn’t have a kid w/out marriage #hypocrite. It’s 2012!”

As Samantha Ronson chimed in with “‘we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.’ really bristol palin? how’s your kid doing?”

    I completely agree with Bristol. Homosexual relationships or marriage is God forbidden and worse is when they allow homosexuals to adopt children.

    It is not my opinion, it is God’s Word and His Word is final. You can disobey it like so many have like Obama, but each will answer to God and there is no escape for that. He won’t listen to opinions, or I have equal rights, He will only judge by His final Word.

    No escaping His final Word! Game over!

    I especially LOVE Bristol’s comment. “…there’s no reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.” Following her line of reasoning, we’d still have slavery in the U.S., there would have been no civil rights or women’s rights movements, etc. Just because something has been a certain way for a long time doesn’t mean that it’s right! I think Bristol should just keep her misguided opinions to herself.
