Bristol Palin Slams Obama’s Support of Gay Marriage: Kids Do Better in a Mother/Father Home
The 21-year-old daughter of former Vice President candidate Sarah Palin, wrote a blog post about her thoughts on Obama’s decision to finally admit that he does in fact support marriage equality, and didn’t exactly agree with him. In the interview with ABC News where Obama finally revealed his support, he said one of his biggest influences was not only his wife Michelle, but his daughters Sasha and Malia, who didn’t understand why some of their friends’ parents couldn’t marry.
It seems as though Bristol had a problem with that sentiment, as she blogged:
“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 her 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. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview. In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.
Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.”
