ONLY FROM THE IVORY TOWERS DOES IT SEEM LIKE A NEGATIVE TO MARRY AND HAVE A CHILD:

Evangelicals Say Palin's Daughter Won't Be an Issue: A panel of evangelical leaders debates the Christian vote (Liz Halloran, September 1, 2008, US News)

"I don't think it [hurts] at all," said Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, who hailed Palin's nomination.

The media's breathless reaction is proof that "you just don't get it," Land said during a U.S. News lunch roundtable here that also included Jim Wallis, president and executive director of Sojourners; Randy Brinson, founder of Redeem the Vote; and Chuck Donovan, executive vice president for the Family Research Council.

Donovan and Land both referred to the national efforts by evangelicals to encourage women and girls to do what Bristol Palin, now five months pregnant, has done and keep the child. "Pro-life people don't see a baby as a punishment," Land said.
