Sally Quinn Shows Her Prejudice
S. O'BRIEN: As I'm sure you know, Barack Obama has said he thinks that family is off-limits and has said that he will fire anybody in his campaign who he feels was sort of working behind the scenes to make this information about Palin's daughter, et cetera, public.Read the whole thing, there's a lot more where this came from.
Do you think that these things should be off-limits?
QUINN: No, I do not.
So, I think we are so far beyond that issue of whether women should work or not, certainly, in your world and my world. But, in the world of evangelicals, that's not the case. Women are supposed to be subservient to their husbands and they are meant to be stay-at-home moms.
And everyone knows that women and men are different and that moms and dads are different and that women -- the burden of child care almost always falls on the woman. But I think, when you have five children, one a 4-month-old Down syndrome baby, and a daughter who is 17, who is also a child and who is going to need her mother very much in the next few months and years with her own baby coming, that I don't see how you cannot make your family your first priority.
And I think if you are going to be president of the United States, which she may well be, I think that's going to be a real stretch for her.
Quinn fits a lot of bigotry into a few words. Sexism against females and males, religious bias, ageism, etc. I just love how lefties love to create imaginary people and then act as if they are real. In stark contrast to Quinn's straw man of evangelicals, Marbel, at Two Kid Schoolhouse, reports the actual evangelical reaction by Dr. James Dobson.
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.I'm not a big Dobson fan. I've never mentioned his name before in my blog. But, he's a far sight more accepting and compassionate the a host of progressives and liberals including Sally Quinn.
