Beauty Pageant Director Slams Carrie Prejean, Gay Marriage Stance

by at . Comments

The gay marriage debate has found its way into the celebrity gossip world.

As previously reported and depicted, Miss USA judge Perez Hilton asked contestant Carrie Prejean for her views on the controversial topic. She replied:

Perez Hilton and Speidi

We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Carrie Prejean doesn't believe in gay marriage. We don't believe she offered any reasonable explanation for this view.

Hilton, as you might expect, was aghast at the response.

So was Keith Lewis, the Executive Director of Miss California USA/Teen USA. He wrote the following to Hilton's website:

"As co-executive director of Miss CA USA and one of the leaders of the Miss CA family, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss CA USA 2009 believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman. Although 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. Religious beliefs have no place in politics in the Miss CA family."

Lewis neededn't have added the final few words. Religious beliefs have no place in politics. Period.

"It did cost me my crown," Prejean said on Monday's Billy Bush Show. "I wouldn't have had it any other way. I said what I feel. I stated an opinion that was true to myself and that's all I can do."

She added:

"It is a very touchy subject and [Hilton] is a homosexual and I see where he was coming from and I see the audience would've wanted me to be more politically correct. But I was raised in a way that you can never compromise your beliefs and your opinions for anything."

Well said. However, Carrie, it would help to explain WHY you possess such beliefs, wouldn't it?

I want to start by saying that I support the gay community and I think that many wonderful people are in that community and if people who are gay wish to marry I think they have the right to do that. With this being said I do feel that Perez Hilton is one very atrocious being. He is very much a bully and will stop at nothing to destroy someone's life if they disagree with him.He says whatever he wants about whomever he wants.He has called a fifteen year old Miley Cyrus a whore,he has called Sarah Palin a pig in lipstick and all of that is okay with him.He absolutely destroyed the life of one of his readers when she barked back at him for his abusive demeanor towards her!The public needs to stand up to Perez Hilton! I support gay rights and the underdog but Perez Hilton is the wrong person to represent that cause! Let Ellen speak because when people see how kind and intelligent she is they can have compassion towards the cause! A creep like Perez Hilton brings everyone down!

Ya know, this is bigger than this contest. Remember when the gays just wanted a civil union? They wanted the legal benefits of living together as life partners just as married hetero couples enjoy. They got that and now they want to be legally married. And it just keeps going. We have the lesbian woman who had a sex change because she had never felt like a female and then decided she wanted to have a baby but still be considered a man. So the Discovery Channel filmed a 'Pregnant Man' documentary with a sequel. Give them marriage and it won't be enough. They have sued the largest manufacturer of Christian bibles for printing 'hate speech due to passages regarding sodomy. Talk about a tiny, vicious minority. You are dealing with a very narcissistic group of individuals who make their reasonable counterparts look bad. Just wait until the ramifications of divorce settlement start affecting those in states where gay marriage is legal. What will they want then?

Boy oh Boy! Gay people are a trip. If you don't agree with them they get all bent out of shape. They all act like we have to accept what they do. I go to church every Sunday- there may be people who think that is crazy (excessive) Honestly I would respect their opinion, I wouldn't get mad and demand that they agree with my behavior. Unfornately gay people want to shove their beliefs down the rest of the world's throats. Ms. Perjean you are going to make it with or without them.

Carrie Prejean is Miss USA in my heart for answering a question honestly that should not have been ask. If you want to be gay, be gay, but don't make an issue over your sexual preferences.

This is still America and we all have a right to believe and state what we believe. It's called free speech, moron. I have the free speech to call you a moron. You are discriminating against someone because they do not believe like you do. So not only are you a moron, but a racist.
