Help me understand.
The California representative in the Miss USA competition exercised her right to free speech when asked her thoughts on gay marriage. As a result she lost the crown.
Was it an unfair question? Well, considering who asked it, you might make that assumption. And she was in the running for Miss USA, not a state house or Congress. Her answer was based on her religious conviction. So we're now to believe that a beauty pageant isn't about beauty at all, but political correctness.
But what I don't understand is why the head of the California Miss USA organization said, "People in California, more so than most states, are particularly passionate about overturning Prop 8 --especially those in the pageant/beauty world."
May I quote Steve Martin? Well excuuuuuuuuse me. But unless I'm lost in space, didn't the majority of voters in California defeat same sex marriage in November? What "people in California"? The minority?
So how does the reigning Miss California USA, Carrie Prejean, not represent the values of the citizenry of her state? And how is it wrong for her to answer a question honestly and be condemned while the asker, a blogger, can be considered just in verbally cutting her to shreds?
Once again, the preachers of tolerance, the despisers of bigotry and bias show they are the most intolerant, biased and bigoted. Unless you agree with them.
