Shocking news broke over the last few days when Miss California was seemingly declined the honor of being crowned Miss USA because of her view of traditional 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.”
She was asked her opinion … she shared it! America is not the country that penalizes people for differing opinions! But yet this beauty pageant seems to have taken a political turn! My questions is, “What would have happened if she believed in gay marriage and lost her shot at the Miss USA crown because of that?” Ouch!
Our culture is in a meltdown … any one with conservative values seems to be labeled as a bigot or a religious nutcase. America is made up a different people with differing views … and that is okay … but America also has the Judeo-Christian belief system as its foundations. We are shifting so far from that foundation.
My question: “Should Carrie Prejean have lost the Miss USA because of her opinion on traditional marriage?”
