Anti-equality Miss California becomes the "pin-up girl of the Right Wing"
Saying she "had spoken from my heart, from my beliefs and for my God", she told ABC: "It's not about being politically correct. For me, it's about being biblically correct."...

Gary Schneeberger, vice-president of Focus on the Family, the country's largest conservative Christian pressure group, was among many who pointed out that Mr Hilton and his supporters were not showing Miss Prejean the same tolerance demanded by the gay community.

"Those who lean to the left ideologically like to paint those of us on the other side as the 'intolerant' ones," Mr Schneeberger wrote. "But some of them are going to have a hard time whitewashing the intolerance they've shown to Carrie Prejean."...

Catholic.org compared Miss Prejean to the Pope. "Miss California is a Christian. She is a student at San Diego Christian College, an evangelical Protestant school," it wrote. "She answered with the kind of integrity and honesty which speaks of what Pope Benedict XVI has called a 'moral
coherence'."

all beauty queen contestants do. She actually does.

2. Biblically correct my ass.
Ugh.
Stop using the Bible to justify prejudice. Pretty sure that wasn't Jesus had in mind.

13. I do. And equating him calling her a name vs. her denying equal rights is ridonkulous.

16. If you'd like I could explain..

I'm not "equating them." I'm saying that calling someone a "bitch" who disagrees with you doesn't help your argument. Just like if Perez didn't believe in my equal rights and I called him a "fag." Obviously there's something HE doesn't get if he thinks he has license to throw these words around just because someone disagrees with him.

Get it? I hope so.

19. perez hilton
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 06:01 PM by paulsby
does the cause of marriage equality a disservice.

frankly, i'd probably get along with miss runner up than i would with him. i can disagree with the former CIVILLY, whereas i'd agree with hilton on gay marriage, but still think he's an asshole.

i also wonder if perez would be willing to use equally "robust' language towards pres. obama, who is also against gay marriage.

34. Well in a sense that's true...

There's something he clearly doesn't "get," just like there's something she doesn't seem to "get."

37. And all gay people think alike. Perez Hilton is our elected spokesman.
I agree with everything that Perez Hilton says, as he agrees with everything I say, and we all agree with everything every gay and lesbian and bi person anywhere says and thinks and says. So if one gay man says something rude, then THAT'S WHAT WE GET!

NO EQUAL RIGHTS FOR YOU.

6. I wish fucking people like her would stop referring to themselves
as Christians. They're about as Christian as my fucking dog.

We need to coin a new term - OTer or something like that.

Fucking pisses me off.

Hey, darling. How you doing?

17. my stance
Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 05:56 PM by paulsby
is that gay marriage SHOULD be legal.

i believe as a matter of policy, it should be.

i thus disagree with her, obama, and clinton.

none are, to the best of my knowledge, evil.

in a previous thread, such terms were used as she should be made a pariah, and calling her evil.

and *if* she is evil for being against same sex marriage, then so is clinton, obama et al.

and here's a hint. they aren't.

32. I think not. She is entitled to have an opinion, even if I don't agree with it.
To be honest, I don't think that soliciting someone's political views at a beauty contest is either sensible or appropriate. I am not a big fan of beauty contests anyway - to me they're little more than anodyne fertility rituals. 'Miss California' is not a political office and so I really don't care what her personal views are. If she had come out and said 'gays are ruining California' or similar, I'd be offended. But her view on marriage as a straight thing was expressed politely and without rancor, which is fine with me.

It's no surprise that the right has made her into a cause celebre. It wasn't a good idea for the left to label her as a bigot and hurl invective as if she was the new Fred Phelps; doing so handed the issue to the right on a plate.

20. Hi, Mr. Chrstian spokes-hack guy? Calling you a bigot when you are one is not intolerance.
You have the freedom to speak your minds. You don't have freedom from any consequences of your words. None of us do. Now go play in a big box of razor blades or something.

Edited on Sun Apr-26-09 07:15 PM by inwiththenew
For elevating her to this level. He basically gave her all she needed to achieve martyrdom for the holier than thou crowd. I am willing to bet if it was someone other than Perez or if he didn't run his mouth no one would even remember her. But what do you expect from an immature asshole like Perez?

33. If Perez would have said that she gave a rambling nonsense answer
instead of saying I disagreed with her so I voted against her, than she'd be a nobody right now.

31. What's up with the Right Wing and runner up Beauty Queens?
To quote Sean Connery "Loser always go home and whine about doing their best winners go home and fuck the prom queen"

Ok now I'm going to be called a bunch of awful names for that quote.

36. Years ago, former Miss America, Anita Bryant had her moment of notoriety for
gay bashing, causing her to lose her orange juice contract. Then she shriveled up & was never heard from again I suspect a similar fate will befall Ms. Prejean.
