Bristol Palin On Abstinence

Tuesday, February 17, 2009 4 comments



GRETA: I don’t want to pry too personally, but obviously contraception is an issue here. Is that something that you were lazy about or not interested in, or do you have a philosophical or religious opposition to it, or –

BRISTOL: No, I don’t want to get into detail about that. But I think abstinence is like … I don’t know how to put it, like … the main … Everyone should be abstinent, but it’s not realistic at all.

GRETA: Why?

BRISTOL: Because — I don’t want to get into detail about it.

GRETA: [crosstalk] Just big picture, not about you –

BRISTOL: Because it’s more and more accepted.

As much as that video makes me cringe, there is some truth to what she said. Premarital sex is very much accepted if not encouraged. Even though many are pushing for abstinence, I don't see a change anytime soon. You can't have a sex oriented culture and expect teens to practice abstinence.

Lastly, what do you think of the interview itself? Is it appropriate? Why would she do the interview?

    I think that one of the things that conservatives are going to have to get used to is that it's damn near a foregone conclusion that people will fornicate with the way that we treat marriage. The longer it is pushed off, and the more unreliable it gets, the more that premarital sex will be an issue. Part of what used to work was that girls around her age were at least engaged to be married.

    As far as abstinence-only education, I have said it before here, and I'll say it again. It's not going to work on a lot of people. The sort of people who cannot even be bothered to buy condoms today, when you can buy them at any gas station, grocery store or department store (Wal-Mart and Target both have a variety), are the sort of people who this will be inherently lost on. For them, finding out the hard way is the only way they'll possibly learn anything.

    The "hard way" (God's Law)will have to do it's job on these people.

    It's the only way I learned. I had to be beaten over the head a few times (more than a few times) for anything to stick in my thick skull.

    This society, this culture, is probably too far gone to save.

    But, we can have an impact, one person at a time...with the gospel.

    I think He is our only hope...in the end.

    FOR SOMEONE TO PROMOTE ABSTINENCE SHOULD COME FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS LIVED A LIFE OF ABSTINENCE BEFORE GETTING MARRIED. SHE IS NO AUTHORITY ON ABSTINENCE, WHAT EXAMPLE IS SHE? SHE MIGHT BE THE DAUGHTER OF POTTY MOUTH SARAH PALIN BUT THAT DOES NOT GIVE HER THE AUTHORITY ON ABSTINENCE.

    The whole palin family has no boundaries. They have no christian virtues in fact Sarah Palin claims to be 'Christian' yet her ever action reveals otherwise. By their fruits we shall know them. Train up a child the way he/she should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Practice the life before your children at home. Be godly examples before them. When you live transparently before them, they will not have to hide behind your back or screw around right under your roof!! Give me a break Bristol Palin - the one who know it all on Abstinence!! BIG JOKE
