Kudos to Miss California

She wasn't crowned Miss USA, but she certainly stood up for her beliefs. Last Sunday, gay guy and Miss USA judge Perez Hilton, asked Miss California, Carrie Prejean whether she believed in gay marriage. Miss California replied "... 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." Good for you Carrie.

Her statement unhinged the drama queen Perez, who posted an obscenity laced video blog attacking Prejean later that night. I'm proud of young Carrie, not for her opinions, but for the fact that she has the courage to voice her opinions. She could have easily taken the PC path and given some lame Obama-type response, but she chose to speak the truth, and that simply is not allowed by enlightened, tolerant, individuals such as Hilton. For so many years we have been blasted by liberals to be more tolerant of "alternative lifestyles", and same sex marriage, after the show we all had the chance to see just how tolerant those like Hilton are of people who do not share their beliefs.

Perhaps what enraged Hilton even more is the fact that her opinions on gay marriage are faith based. Prejean is enrolled in a Christian college, this of course, is the reason she was asked this question. Her answer may have cost her the Miss USA crown, she got first runner-up, but if Carrie had not spoken her true feelings, it would have been a hollow victory for her. In the aftermath of her answer, Prejean has certainly come out on top. She has handled this contraversy with class, while Hilton exudes only hatred, vulgarity and intolerence. He could learn alot from Miss California, but he is too consumed by his own inner demons to notice. And that's just too damn bad.
