Even before openly gay blogger and Miss USA judge, Perez Hilton, confessed that beauty pageant contestant, Carrie Prejean, lost a chance at the crown because of “the way Miss California answered her question,” on gay marriage, the sharks were circling.
Yahoo News declared a Miss California “awkward moment.”
“ABCNews.com paints her as the bad guy for offending the celebrity judge, while failing to mention that a majority of said beauty queen’s fellow Californians agree with her views,” wrote NewsBusters Managing Editor, Ken Shepherd.
Entertainment Weekly on its website: “Miss Cali did no service to womankind — much less the gay marriage movement — with her stumbling answer.”
And the sharks kept circling around Prejean, the 21-year-old blonde bombshell, who attends San Diego Christian College…
Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, tells FOXNews.com that he was “saddened” by Prejean’s statement.
“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.”
When asked by judge Hilton, whether she believed in gay marriage, 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.”
So, this is what it’s come to…you can be beautiful in America and win beauty pageants, but you can’t win them if you don’t tow the liberal line. Get to the back of the bus, beautiful conservatives!
The message: beautiful women opposed to gay marriage, and who are in support of traditional marriage are not pageant crown material!
And when the heat gets too hot for many liberals, they revert back to name-calling.
NEWS.com.au: On a video blog on his website Hilton said, “She lost not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage, she lost because she’s a dumb bitch!”
Tolerance? Hardly. Carrie Prejean, who has also modeled for E! Entertainment at the Academy Awards, should have not only been afforded more respect, but judges should now do a recount to check their consciences and vote for the Miss USA winner again.
If it was a traditional view of marriage that cost Prejean the crown, she is the winner through and through…regardless if she is wearing a Miss USA tiara or not.
