“Being a Christian does not mean you’re perfect. Nor does it mean your children are perfect. But it does mean there is forgiveness and restoration when we confess our imperfections to the Lord. I’ve been the beneficiary of that forgiveness and restoration in my own life countless times, as I’m sure the Palins have.
“The media are already trying to spin this as evidence Gov. Palin is a ‘hypocrite,’ but all it really means is that she and her family are human. They are in my prayers and those of millions of Americans.”
If the feminists really believe, as they say, that “the personal is the political,” then Palin’s situation is full of political meaning for them. The media certainly believe that the personal is the political. Conservatives, bless them, still believe in private life.
