Here we go again - part 3

I wasn't going to say any more. I really wasn't going to say any more. I was just going to spend the day doing my laundry in peace.

And then this:

( Taken from The AmericaBlog)
1. Sarah Palin's first son, Track Palin, was born in April 1989 (we don't have the exact day). Actually now we do, courtesy of FOX News' Alan Colmes. He was born on April 20. For the purposes of this analysis, we will give Sarah Palin the benefit of the doubt and assume that her son was born on April 30, 1989, the longest possible April date from her marriage.

2. Sarah Palin was married on August 29, 1988. She eloped.

3. 38 weeks is the typical human pregnancy.

4. 38 weeks before her son's birthday, April 20, 1989, is July 28, 1988 - i.e., that would be the hypothetical day of conception.

5. If this data is correct, that would mean that Sarah Palin eloped four weeks after her son's conception.

6. Sarah Palin's son could still be legitimate if he was born four weeks premature, AND if he was conceived on the night his parents eloped.

Sigh. Someone please start teaching these people about the birds and the bees. They're making us all look bad.

i'm just curious, but wouldn't this be considered gossip and slander, even if it is about someone in the public eye? why attack someone's child? why act as though you are better, or more christian, or more holy than someone else? i'm not christian, but i know plenty of them, and i see you guys being hypocrites every day. so really, i'm not surprised. go ahead, christian. continue to do what you do best.

I'm actually not a Christian. I'm Catholic by culture, but agnostic by belief, and I do not call myself nor consider myself Christian anymore. Granted that's a fairly recent development, but it predates all of this discussion. The hypocrisy coming out of Christianity one of the reasons for my giving up on it. And sexual hypocrisy one of the key items, they simply do not walk the talk.

As for it being gossip and slander, I disagree. She came on to the ticket as a pro-life, Family Values candidate. I think it's fair to look at how well she's living up to those values. Had she not came out waving the babies diaper, had she said from the get-go "My family is private", that would be a different issue. But she made it a campaign issue, so I'm putting it out for discussion.
