Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin affects, but doesn’t ultimately make and bear the immediate responsibility of daughter’s lifestyle choices. She’s her mother, not God. It’s unfortunate that there are people placing judgment on a situation which they have no personal empathy for. The glaring spotlight placed on this young life that is already in crisis is off limits. I find the condemnation heaped upon the Palin family to be very unloving and not in the spirit of demonstrating the compassion and love of Christ. God’s love isn’t for those that do the right thing only. It is available for all who call upon Him for deliverance.
POLITICALLY SPEAKING: This situation frames the reality that republicans, just like democrats have families that are also experiencing real-world challenges. Painting candidate Palin’s family adversely will serve to mobilize those women that have been placed in bondage by the weight of societal scrutiny. It has the potential of sending voters that detractors are trying to scare away directly into supporting the McCain/Palin ticket.

I SAY: I think that it demonstrates superb restraint, class and integrity for Team Obama to not have launched an offensive against this young mother-to-be. I pray that God’s choice prevails November 4th and that we can begin the process of reuniting for the greater good of our union as the greatest nation on earth.
