Carrie Prejean: I Passed God's Test!

by at . Comments

Carrie Prejean has played the God card.

The Miss USA contestant - who has been all over the news for telling judge Perez Hilton that she believes marriage ought to be reserved for a man and woman - sat down with Fox News this week and actually said the ordeal is simply a test from God.

Right. She's a regular Jonah.


Here are a few excerpts from the fair and balanced interview:

On how she's feeling: Happy. This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I'm glad I stayed true to myself.

On the question about gay marriage:  I knew he was controversial, and so was the question. Out of all the topics I studied up on, I dreaded that one, I prayed I would not be asked about gay marriage. If I had any other question, I know I would have won.

On her response: I have no regrets about answering honestly. [Perez Hilton] asked me for my opinion and I gave it to him. I have nothing against gay people, and I didn't mean to offend anyone in my answer.

On her post-pageant activity: I ate my first hamburger in a long time!

So, to recap: Carrie Prejean took part in a beauty pageant, in order to be asked a question about gay marriage, to which she responded by denying homosexuals basic human rights, which simply proved her faith to God, but doesn't mean she has anything against gay people. And her reward, after starving herself for months, was a hamburger.

Everyone got it?

There you have it folks. Miss USA will always be chosen on political and religious viewpoints. Forget the talent and beauty portion of the show. I applaud Carrie Prejean for standing firm to her opinion no matter what the cost. It is no longer popular being a Christian in America. This country has largely lost its moral compass. To Carrie Prejean, I say thank you and God bless you. I found your courage inspirational. America needs more people like you. It's Perez Hilton who made a fool of himself going on an emotional tirade on the Internet and slandering her name until he was blue in the face.

I commend Carrie Prejean for "Keeping it real" and giving an opinion which obviously the majority of the voters of the great State of California believe in! I'm sick of these politically correct "Harvey Milk" types forcing us to watch what we say. Many brave soldiers gave their lives for these semen gargling idiots to be free to say and do as they please. Carri can give an opinion and not have to worry about the popular answer! You did an outstanding job representing California! Always keep it real!

I don't have a problem with civil unions.
To answer the question "how can it then be cited as any kind of source when it comes to a question of legal marriage?"
This country was founded on Christian principles,no wonder it's been such a great country, a country to be proud of,but to answer your question our founders were believers and they understood the essence of God's word, and they wanted this country to have among other things strong and good moral values and that's why it still influences the laws today.Unfortunally liberal minds are fighting hard to change our principles and weaken our country.

Absolutely not. I encourage any group or organization that can push forward their cause. The GBLT would be great if people were allowed to have their own opinion and let it stand . Agree to disagree. Unfortunately that isn't the case sense when you disagree with many groups for gay rights you are seen as short-sided or in this case with Carrie Prejean called a dumb B**** by the guy who asked the question. Why? becaue she stated her beliefs and didn't answer the way he would have preferred. It is ridiculous.
Having an opinion is exactly that. Here in California before proposition 8 was passed signs for "Yes on 8" were destroyed. Houses with the signs in their yard were vandalized. People who held signs to promote their OPINION of "yes on 8" were ridiculed and assaulted.
It is asked for equality as long as we agree with you. It is an opinion and, yes, it affects lives, but within the United States, the popular vote wins. That is how it works.

I believe... Says: April 21st, 2009 1:47 PM Simple question, Rebekah and others: How are gays "pushing their beliefs" on to you? If they are allow to marry, how will this impact your life? Let's see...TV, media, in elementary schools(two mommies or two daddies are okay),naked gay parades in NYC, want more?
I have four beautiful children that are pure and innocent,and I want them to stay like that as much as possible.I thank God that we are able to send them to a christian school and I've been able to keep them away from everything that's immoral with this world. when they are older they will know right from wrong, but that is not enough I also want a better world for my children's future. Society will become desensitized to immoral behavior,
and that's the agenda, to get used to it, it feels good so it's okay...no it's a sin.

How refreshing to hear someone stand up for their beliefs,too many fear the backlash of the PC brigade.

Brandon, you don't pass laws or not pass laws because they are "slippery slopes." That's not the role of a court. You judge each case on its own merit. You can't imagine hypothetical situations as an argument against a current, tangible situation.
And if the GBLT has organized a strong voice for itself, good for them. This somehow means their rights aren't worthy of minorities with a larger percentage of the population?

Carrie Prejean Quotes

I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. 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

Marriage is good. There is something special about unions of husband and wife. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers.
