Getting out the long knives for Miss California
Miss California is continuing to defend her position on marriage, and yet the opposition has only increased. Isn’t it interesting how many have taken offense to the response which meant no offense? Religious liberty, the ability to freely speak your mind…..isn’t this what it’s all about?
Religious liberty is the free exercise of beliefs and ought to be respected. Carrie Prejean hurt no one with her honest opinion, yet the public vilification continues.
Carrie’s response to Perez Hilton has been made into a new ad for the National Organization for Marriage, as the reactions get hotter. Now even pageant officials are coming after the beauty queen for her stance.
See this from NOM:
On the Today Show this morning, Carrie Prejean appeared to help the National Organization for Marriage get the ad’s message out: Respect marriage and respect the people like Carrie who stand up for marriage! [Click here to watch Carrie’s entire Today Show appearance.] What happened? Carrie was viciously attacked again by pageant officials who said:
“In the entire history of Miss USA, no reigning title holder has so readily committed her face and voice to a more divisive or polarizing issue. We are deeply saddened Carrie Prejean has . . . solidified her legacy as one that goes beyond the right to voice her beliefs and instead reveals her opportunistic agenda.”
Wow. A judge chosen by pageant officials asks Carrie a hot button question, which she answers honestly; this judge then proudly videotapes himself cursing her out and saying he wants to “rip the tiara off her head.” And it’s Carrie’s behavior that is unprecedented?
Attacks continue as pageant officials who openly disagree with her views on marriage, strive to publicly undermine Carrie’s stance by attacking her: Miss California vs. pageant officials: It’s war
Even at the risk of damaging their own organization, the bloodletting continues as the attacks from within pageant circles get personal: Pageant official: We paid for Prejean’s implants
Can anyone seriously imagine that if same-sex marriage were universally accepted as national law, that this woman’s enemies would live and let live?
Sorry Mario “Perez Hilton” …..we’re REPOSTING the video here:
