Bristol Palin – Worst Person in the World!

There is an obsession on the Left with those on the Right who have made mistakes and decided to reform themselves, and in this case it’s Bristol Palin. To those on the Left like Keith Olbermann, Bristol Palin, having made the mistake of premarital sex which resulted in her little boy now apparently disqualifies her from advocating for abstinence. I guess its the same reasoning behind Ed Schultz’s continued use of his pet nickname for Rush Limbaugh as the ‘drugster’. Funny thing to me is that I’ve often found experience to be the best teacher.
In the world I grew up in, it was always those who had seen the dangers of the ‘other side’ first hand who would come back and warn us not to go down that path. Maybe it was a lifestyle of drugs or alcohol. Maybe it someone who tried to commit suicide. Maybe it was just someone who had experienced the dangers of a broken lifestyle through a friend. Either way, we always applauded those who had overcome and many times it was only they who had made it their life’s ambition to try and save others from experiencing the same fate.
Maybe it’s because I’m conservative, although I really don’t think so, but I’ve always applauded Rush Limbaugh for overcoming his drug habit. In the course of that he learned a lot about himself that’s made him a better person to those around him. And if he wanted to tell people about the dangers of oxycontin I would do nothing but encourage him, because he knows better than most how harmful drug addiction can be, and he also knows it can be overcome.
I feel the same about Bristol Palin. She’s made it her mission in life to use her platform to encourage young women to abstain from sex before marriage because she doesn’t want them to experience the same kind of hurt and pain she’s experienced. And I ask Keith Olbermann, what is so wrong with that?
So when I hear Olbermann or those of his ilk diminishing people like Bristol Palin, trying to destroy someone who has done nothing but share their experiences with others, it just reminds me of how hateful and intolerant those are on the ideological Left. And as a Christian, it reminds me that more than anything, no matter how lost they may seem, they need Jesus just like the rest of us.
