Then, you had the guy Jim Adkinsson who ended up killing two people even though he planned to kill more at a church's children's production of "Annie."
Then, you had the guy who killed the chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party.
Now, you have the daughter of Sarah Palin, vice presidential nominee of the Republican party pregnant at the age of 17. Though, to give her credit, she is planning on marrying the father. Sarah Palin is very pro-life, and wouldn't support abortion even if her daughter had been raped. (That reminds me, I do need to write a post specifically concerning God and issues of life.)
And while I cast no judgement, I do think it's ironic that in every political position she's had, Sarah Palin has been against comprehensive sex education as well as contraception. And shockingly enough, she even slashed funding for housing assistance for teen moms. She's supports abstinence only education which is documented to lead to teens having unsafe sex and leading to unplanned/unwanted pregnancies and so, is a waste of money.
And here's her response to a questionnaire:

Which essentially mean, be careful of how harshly you judge people because the same thing may happen to you. (That's also for all you "Christian" conservatives who take the Genesis literally but haven't gotten around to more of the "blessed are the meek" parts of the Bible.)
explicit sex-ed programs.
3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead
of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?
SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.
What's next white America? Electing John McCain for president?!
I mean really, white people. Get it together!
