Here are the some of the good, bad, or ugly comments from recent posts on the politics blog.

Bristol Palin: Abstinence 'not realistic'

That is sad. It basically says because society has changed, the biblical standard for purity has changed as well. Yes, [dying] to sin isn't realistic, but it's possible through the power of the gospel. – Lew

La. Prison Agrees to Strip Monument of Bible Reference

Pro-Lifers, It Turns Out, Were a Big Part of Obama's Winning Coalition

Thank you for pointing out this information. One of the tragic parts of the pro-life fight is the degree to which it has been politicized. Democrats are all pro Choice? Not so. Republicans all pro Life? Not so. Republicans will fix it? They haven't so far. The most tragic part of it is when the movement begins to think it is more important to criminalize than to prevent. We need to do both and embrace efforts to do both. I agree about the teeth: We need to see them on the prevention side. – Carol Roddy

Take That, Hustler!

Congressman Grassley, certainly upheld a Christ-like reaction. This is awesome news to a young Christian man returning to school. This is God's world. We have to interact with the secular views. Without being offensive, Congressman Grassley has given hope to me. My future meetings with classmates during Cultural Social Studies has taken a turn. Thank you. – Jason
