The conservative mom comment July 26, 2012 8:41 AM   Subscribe

Where is that comment which wonderfully explains why women from conservative American families tend to have children much earlier than other women? It's probably at least a couple of years old, but I think it was heavily-favorited.

The link in that post is dead, but here is the same article on the author's homepage, for those interested.

I will accept this to mean he time traveled back to when the link was first posted and substituted the present one for it. He might have then traveled back further to have a cup of joe with President Hoover before returning to the present.

I'm just glad to see that the GOP doesn't have a monopoly on being able to do things retroactively.

Thank you so much for bringing this article to my attention. I missed it the first time around. I feel like I finally have a better understanding of how "the other side" may view the issue of gay marriage, and that it may not be entirely based on hatred, ignorance and the bible. One of the more enlightening pieces I have read lately.
