“While her nude photo shoot has attracted the attention of many, it is her hilarious tirade about tolerance that turned my head,” Palin, the daughter of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin – writes in a blog post.

Cyrus, 22, told Paper that she is the least judgmental person ever, saying, “As long as you’re not hurting anyone, your choices are your choices.” But she did have some harsh words for Christian lawmakers who want to stifle social change.
“Those people [shouldn’t] get to make our laws,” she said. She also called literal readings of Bible stories like Noah’s Ark “f—ing insane” and labeled her parents, of whom she is fond, as “conservative-ass motherf—ers.”
All of which rubbed Palin, 24, the wrong way.
“Is it just me or does it seem more than a little fake that someone claiming to be accepting of everyone and everything would spew such judgment towards her own parents and their deeply held religious beliefs?” she writes.
“She wants everyone else to let her be ‘free to be Miley,’ but seems unwilling to offer the same respect to her parents and those who wish to live out their Christian faith.”
Cyrus actually says plenty of nice things about parents Billy Ray and Tish in the interview, calling the former a “cool hippie psycho freak” and the latter “super cosmic.” She also talks admiringly about how her mom didn’t judge her when, at 14, Miley confessed to her that she had romantic feelings toward women.
Also, Cyrus was talking politics in the context of her own Happy Hippie Foundation, which she started in order to raise funds and awareness for homeless and LGBT youth. It’s Christian lawmakers who are intolerant of those efforts, she says.
Still, Palin is not impressed.
“Oh, Miley,” she concludes. “Thanks for giving us the best example of what ‘tolerance’ looks like in Hollywood: it looks a lot like contempt.”
