MISS CALIFORNIA: PROFILE IN COURAGE

miss-usa1OH YEAH, SHE’S HOT.

BY:CAPTAINAMERICA

Miss North Carolina Kristen Dalton was crowned Miss USA on Sunday, but the big story to come out of the normally politics-free telecast was Miss California’s comments regarding gay marriage.

When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, tells FOXNews.com that he was “saddened” by Prejean’s statement.

Personally Perez Hilton makes my skin crawl. That being said never miss an opportunity to blog about a fabulous babe. That would  Miss California Carrie Prejean. She has probably cost herself a few dollars and the title by opting not to give the politically correct, popular pro-gay answer. I for the life of me can’t understand why this Keith Lewis guy is “saddened” by Carrie Prejean’s comments. What is sad about anything she said? She qualifies her statement saying she wished no offense and that she was raised in a family where marriage should be between a man and a woman. I would say that the vast majority of Americans believe the exact same thing!

I think it’s pretty telling that when Sean Penn gets up at an award ceremony and rants his approval of gay marriage he gets applauded in the main stream media. When Miss USA proclaims the exact opposite platform her comments are deemed “Saddening”.

“As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman,” said Lewis in a statement. “I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family.” LINK

So political speech is OK for Hollywood actors at the Oscars but not for contestants at Miss USA? I bet if her opinion was pro-gay marriage we wouldn’t have heard a peep. This guy is so mad his statement is incoherent! Ha! That’s Ok. Miss California has shown us that she has the courage of her convictions and isn’t afraid to profess them no matter what the cost. Good for her. They are exactly the qualities Miss USA SHOULD have! This is yet another example of how in present day media if you hold or express an opinion that is conservative in any way or have faith based values or opinions you are ridiculed and excoriated.  Miss Prejean didn’t advocate harm to anyone. She only expressed an her own opinion and look what happened.

I wish miss Prejean the best in the future and feel that her courage will carry her far in life.

Now if we can only get a few more members of Congress to show that much courage.

    Agreed, but that ain’t gonna happen with the congresscritters…

  2. “Personally Perez Hilton makes my skin crawl.” – what’s the matter, you don’t like the gays? Do the gays that you work with in the PFD make your skin crawl too?

    From a strictly pagaent standpoint, she’s an tard. That comment may have cost her the title. I’ll bet that if you told her that she would’ve won if she changed her answer, she would have. (she’ll never admit it though). She’s not courageous, she’s brainwashed. Their whole appearance is fake, why not their opinions too?

    Being in favor of gay marriage isn’t pro-gay…it’s pro-equality, unless you think gays are lesser beings than straight people.

    Oh, and Keith and others are “saddened” because the right of gay marriage is all about EQUALITY and non-discrimination, something that this country is supposed to be in favor of. Unforunately, too many people in this country are afraid of homosexuals. They’re afraid that they’ll “catch the gay”.

    And don’t fall back on the “faith-based values” crap either. Jesus Christ surrounded himself with all of the undesirables of his time and accepted them for who they were.

  3. Where does one begin with that?

    Do you have any values that you won’t compromise to be popular?
    I’m pretty sure she knew that answer wouldn’t endear her to the mostly gay crowd or the pageant that’s why she qualified it.
    I didn’t say GAY’S make my skin crawl. Typical liberal you hear what you want. I said “Perez Hilton” makes my skin crawl.
    I have no problems with any of my co-workers. I’m pretty sure they are glad I’m there for them no matter who they sleep with.
    I have no problem with gay people or any other people. That’s how I am able to go into homeless shelters (where many gay people often end up because of their lifestyle choices) and render them aid. That’s how I am able to work in a community with a significant gay population and render first class emergency services.
    But I will not sit by quietly while some people try to equate homosexual relations with marriage. I am sorry if the gay community doesn’t see it that way. The should try and channel their anger in a constructive outlet.
    I will never see marriage as equal with ANY homosexual union. I don’t care if they have civil unions. But you just don’t change a definition based on this months social liberalism. Gays still have it better here than any country on Earth (As do we all…for now)
    As a matter of fact it does come down to faith. The Catholic Church is crystal clear on this issue. So I guess that makes you a Catholic basher.

    Show me one instance where Jesus embraced or even condoned homosexuality. Just because YOU said so doesn’t make it so. Using your warped logic there would be no such thing as sin (except being a conservative).
    I didn’t know you could “catch the gay”.

    Miss California’s mistake was her belief that this is still America where diferrences of opinion are tolerated. Shame on her for answering the question honestly instead of giving the pat politically correct answer that is expected of all of us.

    Please give me a break with this gay marriage crap, because that’s what it is. It’s only about being eligible for benefits on your “spouse’s” plan–most institutions allow this already under threat of being taken down by the PC Cops. Anything beyond that–the official “recognition” for example–is nothing more than an attack on Christianity. It’s about tearing down religious tenants until religion means nothing. Equality has nothing to do with it.

  5. Randal Graves says:

    I didn’t think you had a problem with gays, but I had to make sure.

    I’m not a Catholic basher (actually, I am Catholic), but there are many things that I don’t agree with that the Catholic church teaches. The Catholic church teaches that God loves everyone equally; He’ll even forgive you for breaking one of his Commandments….but gays, no thanks; try out the church down the block. Seriously???

    The priests who are so against gay marriage and the like are most likely closet self-loathers, scared to death to be caught.

    And Lisa, differences of opinion are still tolerated. Miss CA chose to voice her opinion. The judges chose to give the victory to another girl. It cost her what was probably the most important prize in her life up to this point (which is quite sad by the way, but that’s a pageant girl’s life.) I’m sure she doesn’t regret it at all.

  6. Realist says:

    She might not have the crown but she has something Prez Hilton wishes he had.

  7. Hate the sin not the sinner right?
    Or is it anything goes in the name of all out forgiveness without REPENTANCE?
    No sin no guilt no reason to repent. Hey where do I sign up for that?

    After all the concept of repentance implies knowledge of guilt. Or is guilt not fashionable anymore either? I’m sure we can’t have sinners running around feeling guilty right? Is this Rome 2009?

  8. Paul says:

    Miss California can say whatever she pleases – that is a basic right in this country that a lot of good people have died to protect! Perez Hilton gives me the hebe jeebies.As for marriage, I believe it is between a man and a woman. Call me a dinosaur if you plese. 🙂

  9. Ingineer66 says:

    Damn she is hot. She said that is how she was raised. I would bet almost all of us were raised that way, even Perez Hilton. You cannot tell me that when he was little his parents told him he could grow up and marry a man. After saying all that I have changed my view on gay marriage and I voted against Prop 8 partially because I did not think we should be changing the state constitution. But California has voted down gay marriage twice so she is speaking for the majority of Californians in her views. This Perez guy needs to get a life and learn some tolerance. Why is it the left screams that they are all about tolerance, but it is only for people that agree with them.

  10. Randal Graves says:

    “But California has voted down gay marriage twice so she is speaking for the majority of Californians in her views.”

    Americans have overwhelmingly voted against the Republican party in the last 2 major elections. Does that mean Republicans should “let it go”? No, you keep fighting just like you should.

  11. Lisa says:

    Randall, stating that you are against gay marriage is not the equivalent of saying that gays are sinners and should burn in hell. All she said was that she was against gay marriage, which is a perfectly legitimate position to hold; indeed it is still the majority position held in the country.

    Perez Hilton completely ambushed her with a political question, which are frowned upon in these types of admittedly vapid competitions. She was asked the question on live TV, possibly taken off guard and answered it honestly. as a consequence, Prejean has been completely characterized as a hater by Hilton. This type of behavior is not “fighting” the good fight; this is a complete smear on the character of a beauty contestant, for God’s sake, simply because she didn’t give the PC answer to placate the hyper sensitive Hilton. Hilton is not arguing with facts in support of gay marriage; he instead is using a typical liberal tactic of smearing the character and marginalizing the views of the one who disagrees.

    So now in the future, how many beauty contestants will answer a loaded question like this honestly and risk having their character decimated on a national stage? Not too many, I’m thinking. Soon, no one will be willing to speak out. Hey, it’s an awesomely effective startegy and it’s been working beautifully so far for the left. But don’t try pretend the fight is fair or honorable, because it’s not.

  12. Paul says:

    Frankly I am tired of hearing about “gay marriage”. I don’t tell anyone how to live their life, but I do tire of having gay issues in my face. We have more serious concerns in this country !

  13. Lisa,

    I agree with most of what you say. What happened after the pageant is a totally different discussion. Perez is acting like a jackass and that’s too bad for his own cause.

    Miss CA said afterward that she knew what kind of question was coming as soon as she pulled Perez’ name. So I don’t think she was ambushed or taken off guard. I also don’t have a problem with her answer; I disagree with it, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    As for answering ‘truthfully’ in the future, I question their truthfulness now. These girls what the right things to say most of the time or they’re given buzzwords to use if they have no clue how to answer.

  14. She isn’t the issue Randall. Perez and his behavior are. Millions of Americans disagree with his point of view. he used a non-partisan forum to advance his agenda at her expense. That’s despicable. After all her correct answer should always be “World Peace” and the questions should always be leading in that direction.

    How many other candidates were asked about abortion, bailouts, or international relations?

    He’s an idiot. Stick to questions about helping children with cancer and puppies.

  15. Howie says:

    “Being in favor of gay marriage isn’t pro-gay…it’s pro-equality, unless you think gays are lesser beings than straight people.”

    Gays are allowed to get married. To people of the opposite sex.

    Liberals think this is an equality issue and keep pushing that argument to make people think that. People against gay marriage are not anti-gay. They are for traditional marriage, which means two people making a commitment to have children. When two men or two women have a child, the opinion will change.

  16. “which means two people making a commitment to have children.”

    wrong. just wrong.

  17. Howie says:

    Well, Randal, in your case, your parents were wrong.
