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.

Here we go again - Part 2

Well, regardless of whether or not that baby is Sarah Palin's child or grandchild, her family once again proves that Good Christian girls simply cannot keep their legs together.

From Reuters via MSNBC:
Reuters: "The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin's five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Please, Christians, spare us all the sanctimonious, holier-than-thou bull any longer. Being "saved" is just an excuse to get away with anything. Truly responsible parents teach their children to take control of their sexuality, not give that up to some mythic deity. Think about it, that deity made man in his image, to take control of the animal, starting with himself. There's a reason why humans don't have a heat cycle.

I suggest that from now on all liberals view any criticism of their openness to all forms of sexuality and their willingness to teach their children about sex from a scientific point of view as mere jealousy on the part of the conservative christians. They envy us our good families and our daughters who make it through college without getting knocked up.

Remember folks -

Family values = sexual irresponsibility
Abstinence = Getting pregnant ASAP

NOTE: I do applaud her for keeping the baby. We're all human and we all make mistakes. It's not a decision I ever had to face, but I imagine it must have been a tough one. I also applaud her for planning to marry the father. I hope their families help both of these young people to finish their educations while starting their family. It looks like they have a tough road ahead and I wish them all the best. At this time I don't plan on saying any more about this particular family.
