Bristol Palin voices her opinion of Barack Obama's stand on same-sex marriage following Wednesday, May 9 press conference. The daughter of former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin posted an anti gay marriage blog entry that suggests that the U.S. president is weak for allowing his daughters influence his opinion on gay marriage.
"While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage," Palin wrote on her blog.
The 21-year-old continued, "As great as her friends may be - we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids' worldview. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren't younger, or perhaps today's press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox."
Palin, an unwed mother of one, also took a shot at "Glee" which has many gay characters. She said, "Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would've been nice if the President would've been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of 'Glee'."
