Sarah Palin's Amazing Grace

However anyone feels about abortion, the real merit of Peter Sprigg's article is that it explains to the baffled Left and their co-horts in the media what true Christians believe about grace, forgiveness and personal responsibility. The drive-by media mistakenly thought that their reprehensible assault on the Palin family would expose Christians as stereotypical, judgmental zealots who would turn against the VP nominee because her daughter made a very bad choice, i.e. "sinned." Turns out, that only solidified their support of Palin (if that was possible) and endeared her to the base of the Republican party even more. Perhaps this is because most Christians accept and live by Jesus' admonition that he who is without sin should cast the first stone.

Once again, this proves that the ones who are truly "intolerant" and hypocritical mostly exist on the Left (although we do have a few crackpots on the Right, who are roundly condemned, not celebrated).

One other point: Does anyone doubt that if Bristol Palin had chosen to abort, the "feminists" would be lauding her as a "rebel" and a "heroine?" And as difficult as a teen pregnancy is, to listen to some of these pundits and journalists, you'd think it was akin to having an incurable disease (as Obama has publicly stated, if one of his daughters was to conceive out of wedlock, he wouldn't want them "punished with a baby"). Interesting: One side sees it as a blessing (although a challenge) in disguise, while the other side views it as a "punishment."

For a group that is supposed to be about "choice" it appears there's only one option these so-called women's rights advocates would have preferred.
