In the Miss USA pageant this past weekend, Miss California Carrie Prejean, was asked if she supported gay marriage by gay rights activist judge Perez Hilton. Her response was:
“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.”
That was a perfectly fine and truthful answer. She did not give the judge what he wanted, a public and notable confirmation of his alternative lifestyle.
After the show, arguments erupted between supporters and detractors with the pro-gay rights people saying that she should not have gotten as high as runner-up. The Miss California organization came out in opposition to Miss Prejean and expressed dismay at her answer and support for gay rights.
What is this world coming to? Is the Thought Police going to begin enforcement of opinions? Does the Militant gay rights crowd want to force acceptance of their lifestyle.
I for one am in total support of Miss California and applaud her steadfast moral backbone.
