OK, Sarah Palin is a conservative evangelical Christian. That’s pretty much the consensus of opinion and she seems to be pretty happy with that assessment. Not much argument there.
She also seems to be helping John McCain’s ticket pick up the conservative, evangelical vote. But I was wondering….
Quite a few conservative evangelicals think that it is un-biblical for woman to have leadership roles in the church, that their first priority should be as wife and mother. Do these same people support Sarah Palin in her candidacy for the vice- presidency? And if so , how do they square these two apparent inconsistencies?
There seems to be a standard of convenience at work here, not unlike what we are seeing with some far left feminists who are busting on Palin for allowing her career to interfere with her motherhood. They would never accuse a female liberal Democrat of such a thing, nor a man of any party.
So the Far Right likes her – but normally they don’t care for woman in leadership positions, or even out in the work place at all.
And the Far Left doesn’t like her – because she should be at home with her kids, another one of the domestic ‘slaves’ that they have worked so selflessly to free.
What an unexpected reversal of opinions. I guess people must finally be listening to each other.
