Trump Sidesteps Backlash of Biblical Proportions

After careful review, the pictures taken were “fine,” and that while some were indeed risque, many were in fact “quite lovely.” — Donald Trump, on keeping Carrie Prejean as the reigning Miss California.

LA CHURCH & STATE EXAMINER EXCLUSIVE

Well, if the outcome of California’s Prop 8 vote could be used as an indicator, Miss California Carrie Prejean, a supporter of traditional marriage, would stay as the state’s reigning queen… but not by a wide margin.

However, the final decision will be up to Mr. Donald “You’re Fired!” Trump. There are “things to look at,” but, “hopefully it will be a positive decision,” he said to Fox News.

READERS POLL: WILL DONALD TRUMP FIRE MISS CALIFORNIA?

Beauty pageant or not, the fact that Miss California may actually lose her state title illustrates the possible serious repercussions of having an anti-gay marriage stance. People have already lost jobs for supporting a Yes vote on Prop 8. Intolerant gay activists have targeted individuals and businesses in extremely harmful ways.

Yes, the Miss California USA title is a paid position in terms of endorsements, compensation, benefits, allowances, etc. Whether you consider beauty pageants as legitimate enterprises or not, losing one’s job is serious.

Hollywood Elite Still Kicking Christian Beauty

E! Online asks, “Is Miss California the New Joe the Plumber?”

Still reeling from Carrie Prejean’s audacity of truth, Hollywood media types like E! Online writer, Leslie Gornstein, took a reader’s comment and pinned it as her story’s top centerpiece. The pro-traditional marriage bashing continues…

Now that Miss California has spoken out against gay marriage, is she the next Joe the Plumber or what? —Heather, Butte, Mont.

Gornstein leads after the reader comment:

If you’re asking whether anti-gay-marriage groups have wrapped their Jesus-lovin’ arms around Carrie Prejean’s perfectly tanned spine, the answer is: They certainly are trying.

Lawsuit? Dating Michael Phelps?

Uppity-ups in the Republican party also tell me Prejean definitely will be approached by some arm of theirs, though whether she’ll be game is another story. She may be too busy suing Donald Trump or (possibly) dating Michael Phelps to participate…

Gornstein, you obviously missed the part where Prejean said she will be praying for Perez Hilton and that she feels sorry for him. Hardly the opening salvo of an impending lawsuit. Phelps? I don’t get it. You must be striving for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)… or throwing in the bong factor.

Sorry, Gornstein, this particular blond is already a success story. No amount of dumb-beauty-queens-don’t-ever-make-it spin you give your readers will stick to this woman.

Is she the new Joe the Plumber? Please attempt giving this beautiful, intelligent woman some respect. It would be the right thing to do!

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…

FoxNews.com reports:

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.
