Ok, so can I talk politics for a minute? I know that no one wants to read this, no one wants to know my point, and no one is going to leave me comments, and I might even loose a few readers. But that's ok with me, because this is a subject that I feel really passionate about. Not politics, but the junk being spread about McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin.
Now, you might have heard, that Gov. Palin has a daughter who is 17, unmarried and pregnant. Does this make her a bad mom? HECK NO! Does it make her daughter a bad person? HECK NO! And let me tell you why I think that. Because I too was 17, unwed, and pregnant. Am I a bad person? No. Did I throw my life away so I could live in the streets? No. Am I a good mom who runs a full time business that I solely own, give my daughter everything she needs and wants, and walk with Jesus as any other mother does? YES!! Is my mom a bad mother? No. Was she responsible for me laying with someone that wasn't my husband? No. Could she have done a better job as a parent and kept a better eye on me? No. This is why....TEENAGERS LIE PEOPLE! This is not new news!! They have been doing it forever. Kids get pregnant when their parents think they are at a friends house or the mall. Parents give the sex talk, that doesn't mean your kids are not going to have sex! Millions of girls that are underage give birth in this country every year. Its nothing new. We just used to send them to convents instead of school!
So hear me out. I know what its like to be that girl. The one who walks through the halls at 9 months pregnant and has people call her a whore and a slut to her face! I have been there. I have seen it. I have felt the pain. And I saw what it did to my mom. Her friends all abandoned her. They said she was a bad mom. Well honey, look in your own closet and a I guarantee you there are a few skeletons!
No one is perfect.
Lets not judge this lady on her kid's actions. Lets say, look, she is standing by her daughter. She is doing what a good mother should. She isn't kicking her out or forcing an abortion on her. She is being strong for her, and that is what she needs. She needs support and love. That's what I needed.
I think that the McCain/Palin team could really rock this country and do some amazing things for us.
Remember.....he who has no sin must cast the first stone. Are you throwing yours?
