Bristol Palin Called A Hypocrite For Gay Marriage Comments

Dan Evon

Bristol Palin, an unwed single mother, has a problem with gay marriage. Palin made a few comments yesterday in opposition to President Obama’s recent statement about same-sex marriage and several commentators are furious at the apparent hypocrisy.

One user wrote:

“Let’s all bask in the irony of Bristol Palin talking about the importance of raising a child in a traditional marriage.”

Another added:

“Bristol Palin is just envious that some babies have two dads & her’s doesn’t even have one.”

Yesterday, Bristol said that Obama should have shown his daughter’s leadership by standing up for “thousands of years of tradition.” Bristol said:

“It would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends (gay) parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage…. We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview… Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking.”

Do you think Bristol Palin is being hypocritical? Should Palin, a single mother, be criticizing “non-traditional” families?
