The Christianity Today Blog discussed conservative Evangelical Christian reactions to the news of Bristol Palin‘s pregnancy.
It seems all the Religious Right leaders are supporting Palin and her family. Here’s James Dobson, for instance:
“Being a Christian does not mean you’re perfect. Nor does it mean your children are perfect. But it does mean there is forgiveness and restoration when we confess our imperfections to the Lord. I’ve been the beneficiary of that forgiveness and restoration in my own life countless times, as I’m sure the Palins have.”
As one commenter notes, I don’t remember Dobson reacting the same way when Bill Clinton confessed his own imperfections.
Speaking of which, the comments on that site are well worth reading. I know you all don’t like reading 94209423 comments on any one post, but for that posting, you have a mix of Christians and non-Christians talking about the pregnancy and the hypocrisy.
I found the comments much more interesting than the post itself.
