Carrie Prejean Hearts Marriage, Fame

by at . Comments

Carrie Prejean loves fame almost as much as she hates gay people.

On the Today show this morning, Miss California announced that she'll milk every second and every penny that she could from the attention she's receiving work with the National Organization for Marriage on a campaign opposing gay marriage.

"I am just here to protect marriage," said Prejean. "The National Organization for Marriage basically just respects marriages and people who support it. I am here to protect traditional marriage."

Regarding the outrage that followed her response to Perez Hilton's question during the Miss USA pageant, Prejean said:

"I never thought in a million years that this would be happening right now. I was attacked for giving my own opinion on stage. I am going to do whatever it takes to protect marriage."

Sounding like a complete and utter moron, reading a nonsensical Hallmark card, Carrie continued to say that marriage "is something that is very dear to my heart, and I am just here to protect it. That's all I am here to do."

Come on now. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. But what does that even mean? Marriage is close to her heart?!? If that's the case, perhaps Prejean should campaign against the nuptials of heterosexual couples, considering nearly 50% of them end in divorce.

Moreover, Prejean's statements cause us to wonder...

  • Why does gay marriage anger Catholics to such a degree, yet few comment on a story such as Mel Gibson's divorce? Does the Bible not say: “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:6) and “I hate divorce, says the Lord God of Israel" (Malachi 2:16a)?
  • Carrie talks continually of "protecting marriage." Can someone explain how a gay couple exchanging vows threatens the union of a heterosexual couple? Must one straight marriage be dissolved in order for a gay marriage to take place?
  • If Prejean had not been asked her stance on gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant, would she still embark on a campaign against it? In other words: is this truly an issue close to her heart, or just an opportunity to extend her 15 minutes of fame for as long as possible?

Let us know your responses to these questions and overall thoughts on Carrie Prejean. We welcome all comments!

I am a Christian and I believe in gay marriage. To deny gays from getting married is not Biblical. I think gays should have the EXACT SAME RIGHTS as I do to marry. So, if a gay man wants to marry a gay woman, or vice-versa, then they have that right! The problem is that gays want "special" rights that straight Americans do not have. I cannot marry a straight man nor can a straight woman marry a straight woman so I don't see where there is a problem with anyone being denied their rights. We all have equal rights when it comes to marriage and we all have equal restrictions. What is the problem?

Who ever wrote this article is a lyer and has stretched the truth by a long shot. This website neither cares for anyone sopinion other than to make money with their adds. Non bias reporting means your nuetral and you suck at it... "writing." I can see were you will snicker at my post but most people will not see what you are doing. I just wnat you to know demon that I know who you are... By this time I guess Satin probably has you beliveing this is a great article, and is incouraging you to write more.

She, as many Americans, has lost her right to voice her own opinion. It did not matter what she said. If she had said she was for gay marriage, she would have been scorned for that too. It is sad that people cannot voice their opinion in the land of the free.

Being that Perez Hilton knew Carries background in a Christian university, it becomes blatantly obvious that she was targeted because of her religious background and the stripped of her merits (they later admitted she was the frontrunner). I have no problem with what people want to do in the privacy of their own homes, but the radical left seeks to force it's agenda on the rest of us. The problem with redefining marriage is that it becomes open for anyone to interpret as they wish. Homosexuality and promiscuity of any kind destroy the family structure and exposes children to envirnments ridden with venerial disease and total decadence. I'm with Carrie Prejean; One man, one woman.

You are worse than those you despise when you equate an opinion contrary to yours with hate. I'm against gay marriage because marriage is the foundation of PROCREATION! when gays can procreate, let them be married.
Why are you so adamant about normalizing the right of one man to sexually please another man anyway? Just because we all don't agree with you does not make us the enemy and does not mean we hate. Stop demonizing those on the other side. That's what Hitler did. Quit arguing with your emotion and use some intellect instead. Less than 1% of our population is homosexual, why should they dictate policy or laws for the 99% of us? Go ahead and live together but call it something else. It's not marriage, and it's not normal.

"Can someone explain how a gay couple exchanging vows threatens the union of a heterosexual couple? " The fact is that Christians who advocate against legal gay marriage can't see beyond the bridge of their nose. They believe that legalizing gay marriage would erode the "core values" of this country. But that assumes that our "core values" should be tied to Fundamental Christian ones. The truth is that religion has no place in government. Our forefathers had the foresight to establish this with the separation of church and state. Loving vs. Virginia (outlawing the ban on interracial marriage) upheld our REAL core values as a country, which is stated in the first amendment. And we need to do that again and give gays the rights they deserve!! The very sad fact is that the ban on gay marriage is simply cliche bigotry veiled by religion. Keep Christianity in the Church and OUT of the Courthouse!

For those of you wondering why gay marriage threatens heterosexual marriage, go to the National Organization for Marriage website, and click on the tab for "Why Marriage Matters".

What she needs to understand is that not everyone has her religious beliefs. If we have the freedom of religion then we should have the freedom of sexual preference. She said "in my country we believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman" What country is she from? Last time I checked America was full of people who believe otherwise.

I think it's great that she spoke her mind and is sticking to what she believes in but what the hell?! Why would she need to protect marriage from gays?! Now I think she is after fame and frankly, in my opinion she talks total bull! Exactly like you said, why does a gay/lesbian couple threaten a heterosexual couple? Even if someone is gay they are still a human being and they still love like straight people, there is nothing wrong about it. In my opinion, marriage should be a right. 'Protecting marriage' from gays and lesbians i slike taking away a right. It's being discriminated against. How do you think she would feel if someone said she wasn't allowed to be married because she is blonde? I understand that everyone has the right to theit own opinion but I think she hsould shut her mouth before she seriously offends some people (more than she has already).
