  • Leave Bristol Palin alone

    As you've probably heard, Bristol Palin is pregnant with her second child. The reason she is getting so much grief is because she was getting paid $200,000 to promote abstinence. So, yes, she has been caught being a major hypocrite.

    I am going to argue we should not join in on shaming her. As I posted in another thread a few weeks ago, it is not a sin to be unmarried and pregnant; it is a sin to have sex outside of marriage. Bristol may not be very sympathetic because of her job, but think about other women who have a lot invested in not being pregnant. Maybe a single woman in your church. If these people get condemned for being pregnant, all it does is encourage them to seek an abortion before anybody finds out... and I have no doubt this happens all the time.

    (For the record, I do think Bristol was a poor choice to have been promoting abstinence given that she became pregnant out of wedlock in a very high profile manner previously.)

      Yep. I feel bad for her; she didn't choose to become thrust into the spotlight.

I see your point about how it could cause those in a similar situation to abort rather than endure the shaming...but what about the other side of the coin? We look the other way because of it? No win situation...
        That's true. I guess the way I see it is she's gotten so much criticism from all quarters already that I don't see a point in piling on any more.

          Yeah, she's taken a lot of heat for it... No surprise, the 'ever-classy' Gawker Media took the opportunity to blast her.

          ETA: Besides, it's more up to her physical family (not to mention church family) to dish out the rebukes more than some goofballs on the interwebz.

            Hmmm...well...your thread was the first I had heard of it actually...
