It seems that waves of criticism have started to flow from the celebrity world on Sarah Palin; especially when it comes to the environment, animal rights, abortion, and gay rights. Lindsay Lohan and her gal pal DJ Samantha Ronson are just the latest in a string of scathing comments from folks like Pink, Matt Damon, and Pamela Anderson. Check out the pair’s latest blog entry below:

“I really cannot bite my tongue anymore when it comes to Sarah Palin.

I couldn’t be more supportive of a woman in office, but let’s face it, it comes down to the person, and their beliefs, male or female.

Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock?

I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor. Which is probably all she is qualified to be… Also interesting that she got her passport in 2006.. And that she is not fond of environmental protection considering she’s FOR drilling for oil in some of our protected land…. Well hey, if she wants to drill for oil, she should DO IT IN HER OWN backyard. This really shows me her complete lack of real preparation to become the second most powerful person in this country.

Hmmmm-All of this gets me going-Fear, Anxiety, Concern, Disappointment, and Stress come into play…

Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?

I know that the most important thing about this election is that people need to exercise their right to vote, regardless of their choice… I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the “lipstick on a pig” comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president…

Palin’s desire to “save and convert the gays”-really??

According to this Associated Press story, the church of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is hosting a kind of conference devoted to the “conversion of Gays” — no kidding.

Here’s the AP text: ‘Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer. You’ll be encouraged by the power of God’s love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality,” according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed since she was a child. Palin’s conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain’s candidacy before he named her as his vice presidential choice. She is staunchly anti-abortion, opposing exceptions for rape and incest, and opposes gay marriage and spousal rights for gay couples.’

I feel it’s necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman.

Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies… And its frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that.

Oh, and…Hint Hint Pali Pal- Don’t pose for anymore tabloid covers, you’re not a celebrity, you’re running for office to represent our, your, my COUNTRY!

And in the words of Pamela Anderson, “She can suck it“.

Lindsay- “I have faith that this country will be all that it can be with the proper guidance. I really hope that all of you make your decisions based on the facts and what feels right to you in your heart-vote for Obama!”

Samantha- “I love this country- however i wasn’t born here and don’t have the right to vote- so i beg of you all to really do your research and be educated when you cast your vote this coming november…. and if you’re in doubt- vote for obama! Mainly because if she gets elected my green card probably won’t get renewed!!!”

Lindsay and Samantha“

    oh my word – why does epistle all make sense to me! go lindsay!

  • Cid Martins

    All right!

    Now we’re talking! It’s about time people wake up!

    I’m glad to see some people in the show business standing up for everyone’s rights!

    I’m just disappointed with those of them who are more worried about their public image than saying out loud what they think about palin the evil one!

    But this is a start!

    Great post Michael. I honestly can’t get (and haven’t gotten for years) why the right wingers appear to have TOTAL disregard for our environment. I believe in God too which I would think is all the more reason to care about this land we have been given. I also see that MANY of the native Alaskans (you might use the term Eskimo or what have you) are AGAINST Sarah Palin. Also check this article out. I think Sarah cares more about killing polar bears and wild dogs (seriously she is trying to get polar bears taken off the endangered species list!) than about the woes of the Native Alaskans. I pray she is not elected. And I close with this qoute from a Native American born in the North West not so terribly far from Alasaka…

    enough already with palin– go after MCCAIN

  • jennifer ramos

    McCain will say and do anything to get elected and I pray to God he doesn’t get the presidency. I’m not a fan of Lindsey at all, but I think this is one of the few great things shes done. I think its courageous when a celeb can come out and support a politician, no matter what others think. Palin doesn’t care about the environment or the animals in AK..My sister and I used to live there and we are NOT voting for that ticket!

    Obama/Biden 2008!

  • Up yours Linds & Sam

    So..a cokehead crackwhore whose own mother pimps her kids to hollywood & gets high with them doesn’t like someone who actually has morals. So Lindsay, did you come up with this on the way to your fourth rehab stint??? BTW..suck it..very mature but of course you do look up to that porn star who said it.

  • Key

    I love the new reformed/informed Lindsay – but a lot of the things she asked if they’re sins are mostly considered by several faiths. Sex out of marriage, children without marriage and homosexuality have all been deemed sins by major organized religions.

  • Jozelle

    Im 18 For once I agree with Lindsay Lohan 100% I mean come on the woman has NO QUALIFICATIONS and is like on a mission to destroy the environment when right now people care about the environment and humans impact on it more than ever let alon how she LOVES to hunt down poor defenseless animals by helicopter.Also I think personally she isnt qualified because if you cant take care of your own family and the responsibilities that entails how can you look after an entire country ?
    Pregnant 17 year olds dont belong to every family out there obviously someone was too busy with her job care about her family……not what i want to see in office at all wether im “liberal” or whatever the point is still shes not right at all and doesnt know squat and would be an embaressment if she was in the white house with a man who looks like he is gonna drop dead any moment

  • VeggieTart

    For all of Lindsey Lohan’s problems, she appears to have grown an actual brain and is using it. Maybe she’s worried about her reproductive rights because, like many of us women, she’d kinda like to keep them, and in this case, it’s a man and a woman who would destroy them versus two men who would protect them.

  • KC

    Lindsey politics is too big of a word for you. You should stick to Winnie the Pooh. I dont think that people would listen to someone who has been a slut, whore, drug addict and lesbian now added to their reputation. I mean come on its not everyday that the Lolita from LI talks crap… oh wait it is- now she just eats carpet

  • Kristi

    I just think it is funny that she has been to rehab several of times, claims her life is straightened out and has now been gay for what 5 months and she considers herself able to argue over gay rights. When this relationship ends up not working out, she will be back to dating men!! Keep your mouth shut and keep pouring the drinks down your throat cause that is all you are good at. Useless trash on this planet!!!

  • Sarah

    You don’t have to be gay to support gay rights.

    Anyway, why is everyone putting her down for trying to change and become a better person? If you can say such nasty things to someone you’re probably not that great of a person yourself.

  • Cid Martins

    You puritans are the worst of them all!

    Everything is a sin to you! You are better than everyone who doesn’t only have sex in the missionary position, who has sex before marriage, during and afterwards, who get divorced when they realize it’s not working any more, who doesn’t go to Sunday church, who experiment in life (good or bad things) and who are different from you!

    You scare me so much more than a 1000 Lindsays and Pams together…

    And if you are so ‘pure’, shouldn’t you give people a second, third… chance in life?

    Go support palin and maccain somewhere else please… shooo…

  • Jessica

    Puritans are not scary. You obviously know nothing about this religion do you? So Palin has morals? You really shouldn’t listen to someone like lohan. Look at her life! By the way, not everything is a sin. We also do give second and third chances. Jesus died on the cross for that reason. Maybe you should pick up a bible and actually read it. It might actually help you through those struggles that EVERYONE goes through. We don’t think we’re high and mighty. But we do like to stand for something. I respect Palin. Christians mess up like everyone else, so don’t judge us. I hope you know that God loves you so much, that he actually sent his son to die for you. I don’t agree with lindsey but I’m not gonna bad mouth her for what she believes. McCain isn’t trying to take anyones rights away. I wouldn’t take hollywood’s advice. They aren’t the brightest. I don’t know what Christians you know, but don’t be so quick to judge all of us! God Bless!

  • Jessica

    Another thing…Don’t babies deserve a chance in life? Anyone ever think about that? There is this thing called adoption.

  • Cid Martins

    I am sorry, there is a miscommunication here…

    What I meant when I wrote ‘puritan’ was, and this is from an English dictionary:
    “2. (lowercase) a person who is strict in moral or religious matters, often excessively so. ”

    I was not referring to any religion in particular…

    And Lindsay’s life is her business…Who am I or you to judge her? If you don’t want to be judged don’t judge others, just because they don’t live by your rules! Who said your values are better than hers? Just because it’s in the bible?
    Well I don’t believe in the bible! Does that make you a better person than me? Where is the original manuscript of the bible? Do you know into how many languages the bible has been translated? Do you know that no matter how good a translation is, there are always changes in the target text? So who can assure you that what you are reading in the bible is faithful to the original? Do you now how many times it has been revised? And who wrote the bible? Were they impartial? Give me a break!!

    As far as I know Lindsay hasn’t hurt anyone has she? On the other hand I can’t say the same about palin who has done a lot of evil – for instance: This year the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game will exterminate 1,400 bears out of a population of 2,000 in an area west of Anchorage. The Alaskan Board of Game even approved the hunting of black bear mothers and cubs with the goal of killing 60 percent of the black bear population. Although biologists have known since the 60’s that predators actually keep prey populations healthy, Alaskan wolves and bears are being exterminated (using cruel practices such as baiting, trapping, and aerial shooting) to boost dwindling moose populations.

    Oh, and by the way I am not a Lindsay’s fan…

  • American

    You have got to be kidding me? Who gives a rats butt what Lindsay Lohan has to say about the next Vice President of the most powerful country in the world. When she gets a real job and can stay sober for more than a weekend, maybe then will I give her the little attention she needs, but no until then. Wake up America! Lindsay Lohan, what ever! If this is a sign of things to come, South America is looking pretty good right now.

  • Jessica

    It’s pretty obvious that you don’t believe in the bible, that’s your problem not mine, Jesus won’t turn his back on me when I die. Palin isn’t evil, she’s a good woman. Sorry she’s smart. Wolves in Alaska are a big problem. They aren’t in low numbers there like you seem to think. If your ever face to face with a wolf don’t think for a second that wolf won’t kill you. It’s nature,we’re on top for a reason. I also wasn’t judging anyone, I won’t listen to her because I don’t agree with her!! I don’t know her values, but I know mine and yes they are in the bible. If you don’t like it, that’s your problem. You should honestly try to read it. I feel for you. You seem so cold and bitter. I don’t know what’s made you that way, but I’m sorry for you. The bible has been changed books have been left out, I know that, but it doesn’t keep me from believing in God. It is ultimately his word. You have to trust in it. God can assure me that the bible is faithful. I’m sorry you have a hard time with this but don’t you dare try and turn my back from God cause you’ll never succeed I pray that you turn to God one day before it’s too late. He can help you if you let him in!! God bless and good luck with your life!

    Jessica, I suggest you pick up some introductory book on ethics so that you won’t make such nonsensical statements as “Palin has morals” and Lindsey doesn’t.

    You “won’t listen to her because you don’t agree with her”? How can you ever learn anything new with that attitude? Having a long held position changed through a strong, convincing argument is one of the greatest experiences one can have.

    Furthermore, all this Bible talk is nauseating. Pick any moral question and you can construct a case based on the Bible for two exactly opposite positions on it. The Bible is not something you “believe in”, that’s another nonsensical statement. What you believe in is a particular interpretation – interpretation by human beings.

    As a non-believer who finds the Bible endlessly fascinating and who has studied most passages many, many times, I find it shocking how little people with absolute convictions and faith actually know about it.

  • Jessica

    No, I won’t listen to her because of the way she lives. That’s not the way I want to live my life, but Palin seems to value life way more than Lohan. I wish you were a believer. I suggest you learn ethics, just because I’m a Christian who tries her best to live by God’s word, you fight against me? I have a right to say what I believe and so do you. That doesn’t mean you can sway me, I stand strong in my beliefs. I understand that the bible has been translated, I know there have been books left out. It is still the living word, and I will follow it until death. I know plenty about the bible, but I’m also still learning. If you are so fascinated by it why aren’t you a Christian? The bible is something I BELIEVE in. Don’t tell me what I do believe in cause you have no idea..Lindsey might have morals, I don’t know. But they way she lives her life, isn’t a way I want to live. I understand she has a right to say what she wants, but I don’t have to agree with her, that’s my right just as much as anyone elses. You all just hate Palin because your stuck on Obama, and you believe he is So much better. Get off your high horse and open your eyes. You have a right to your beliefs, but don’t try and change my opinion because you never will. I stand firm in my faith. By the way, your telling me I can’t learn if I don’t listen to Lindsey? But if we all listened to one human being we’d all be stupid. I didn’t know she was a philosopher… but then again everyone’s a philosopher in their own way. It’s pretty nice talking to you atheists. It really helps me to be an even stronger Christian. I’ll pray for you.

  • fbr

    Jessica, there are so many problems with your arguments that I can’t possibly address them all, but I’ll try a few.

    The point I was making is that arguments stand on their own. It makes no difference whether they were made by Lindsey Lohan or by the Pope. Refusing to listen to an argument because it’s made by someone you dislike is just an excuse for closing your mind to arguments opposite to your position.

    I never said you “can’t learn if you don’t listen to Lindsey” in particular. I said you can’t learn if you refuse to listen to arguments because you don’t agree with the person making the arguments in general. Also, I never made an argument that you should listen to only “one human being”. In fact, I was making the precisely opposite argument.

    You state that people “hate” Palin because they are “stuck on” Obama. Maybe this is true for some, it’s certainly not true for all. And in any case it makes no difference at all. There are many strong arguments made against the nomination of Palin, it makes no difference who has made these arguments or what other opinions they hold. Again, arguments stand on their own.

    I wasn’t “fighting against you” or trying to change your beliefs. I’ve debated enough people with this type of great conviction in their particular faiths to know that there is no argument to change that. I was simply pointing out that saying you “believe in the Bible” makes just as much sense as saying that “colorless green ideas sleep furiously”. It’s simply a statement that has no meaning. It’s only possible to believe in a particular interpretation of the Bible – whether it’s your own or stems from an older tradition.

    What do you think about abortion, homosexuality or polygamy? I’ve heard equally convincing cases for both sides of these arguments from people describing themselves as faithful Christians, all backed up by passages from the Bible.

    Finally, you don’t need to be a Christian to find the Bible, and the numerous belief systems built around it, fascinating.

    It cracks me up to hear Lindsay Lohan speak about politics, if anything she is helping the McCain campaign. Most people do not like Lindsay anymore or Pam Anderson for that matter, I am not sure who these actresses think they are. They have not done anything for this country except make money from movies they’ve made or did sex tapes etc. So why would anyone look up to such people, we need some role models on tv and on the big screen. Not actresses who do drugs & party all night. Obama is against gay marriages also, it is not just McCain. I am not sure who I am voting for, but I will not vote for Obama just because Lindsay Lohan says it is the right thing to do, I think everyone could care less about what she has to say. Just my opinion.

  • Brandi

    Regardless of Lindsay’s past problems (and I am no fan of hers), she is allowed to have an OPINION, which is what she is stating..

    I don’t hate Palin because I’m stuck on Obama. I hate her because she goes against everything that is right. I am not against Christianity in general, but I think extremism in any direction is wrong. I think that Palin is extremely dangerous. The reason it matters, is because John McCain is an old man, and it’s not outside the realm of possibility that he could die in office and Sarah Palin WOULD become president. That is what has people terrified.

  • cari

    Where are all the REAL role models? I don’t think it’s courageous at ALL that Lohan spoke up! Pretty much everyone in Hollywood is a democrat, so she’s not treading any new ground here–her opinions are not awe inspiring or anything. Just vote your beliefs, either way. I personally disagree with abortion and I have the right to that, just like she has the right to believe that it’s okay! It’s so frustrating that everyone tells people to be open minded and non-judgemental but those same people are judging too!

  • diane

    I think we keep going on to much about is it right to have sex before marriage, is it right for gay people to get married, or is it right that gay people can have children when there are more important things going on in the world. It should not matter if you are gay or straight and it should not matter if you have sex before marriage as long as that is what you both want. What we should be looking at, is how to help poorer countries and help people who struggle survive.
