Another reason to support Gov. Palin's nomination

A man is known by his friends as well as his enemies.

I have mentioned a few of the articles that contributed to my excitement about Gov. Sarah Palin's addition to the Republican ticket. All of those articles have been positive. I am now directing you to an article that reveals some of the attacks against Palin made by those on the left. These are simply more reason for me to see Palin in a positive light.

In the article Lefty Bloggers Go After Palin's Daughter, I was particularly disgusted by Alan Colmes' unwarranted and speculative attacks. It's hard to understand how folks who supported the admitted First Philanderer can attack folks based merely on highly unlikely speculation.

Dobson on Bristol Palin's Pregnancy

September 01, 2008 1:52 PM

Dr. James C. Dobson of Focus on the Family issued the following statement:

"In the 32-year history of Focus on the Family, we have offered prayer, counseling and resource assistance to tens of thousands of parents and children in the same situation the Palins are now facing. We have always encouraged the parents to love and support their children and always advised the girls to see their pregnancies through, even though there will of course be challenges along the way. That is what the Palins are doing, and they should be commended once again for not just talking about their pro-life and pro-family values, but living them out even in the midst of trying circumstances.

"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.

"The media are already trying to spin this as evidence Gov. Palin is a 'hypocrite,' but all it really means is that she and her family are human. They are in my prayers and those of millions of Americans."

Read an ABC News report about Governor Palin's statement regarding the rumors about her daughter.

  1. I agree. Those nasty attacks, using her daughter, are just making me dig my heels in more to support her.


No personal attacks. No profanity.
