Miss California Carrie Prejean is Ripped off by a Gay Guy

It seems to me that the next logical step for the Miss USA pageant will be to recruit people of different religions as judges and allow them to ask pointed religious questions of the contestants.  Then, when someone does not hold the same religious views as the judge from Saudi Arabia, for instance, he can look disgusted and dismissive, and we will all say to ourselves, “Boy, she doesn’t have a chance.”  He won’t give her his vote.

There is really no difference.  Allowing Perez Hilton (vomit) to ask such a pointed question about gay marriage knowing that he is strongly opinionated gay man, and that most of Americans hold views contrary to his on the subject, shows that the producers of the program have no regard for their audience or the integrity of the pageant itself (that seems like an oxymoron).

After hearing her answer, Hilton should have disqualified himself from the voting.  But, beyond that, I thought the purpose of the questioning was to see if these young ladies were able to communicate effectively when put on the spot.  If that was the case, it is clear that Carrie Prejean could communicate well, and her honest answer that ‘she was raised to believe that a marriage was between a man and a woman” shows a good amount of personal integrity.

Is a beauty contest the forum for this debate?  Of course not.  When this occurs, the show is reduced to an agenda pushing event.  Imagine Billy Graham on the show as a guest judge.  Do you think people would accept the same question coming from him?

The good news is that Carrie Prejean did more to promote herself by giving this answer than she ever could have done otherwise.  The bad news is that Hollywood has a long memory, and she will have a lot of opportunities lost as a result of sticking to her values.  It’s a shame that we are at the point where it is better to be a fraud and lie, than it is to stand up and support the things you believe in.

The best news for us all is that the shelf-life of these programs is about up, and it will not take a lot more alienating to drive the rest of Miss USA’s audience away.  Good.

Live by the Sword,…

I cannot say that I was surprised.  Today, I read an article about an incident.  I then watched a video in which an old lady showed up to a rally against the California gay marriage ban with a cross.  She was verbally assaulted by the very angry crowd, and later, of course, her cross was taken from her by some angry gay men and then trampled purposely under their feet.

I find the hypocrisy here astounding.  Sure, it was probably not a good place for an old lady with a cross to be in the first place, but these crusaders for personal rights and justice took it upon themselves to trample on her personal right to free speech and free expression, and then the proceded to further debase themselves by literally trampling upon religion.  Very nice.

These, of course, are some of the best proponents of hate crimes legislation in the country.  Well, now it is all on video for the world and the local prosecutors to see.  I, personally, hope they are charged federally.

Let’s see:

Disorderly Conduct (state)

Simple Assault (state)

Assault on the elderly (state)

Petty Theft (state)

Violation of her civil rights (federal)

Hate crimes against religion (federal and state)

That ought to do nicely.

Extra! Extra!

Breaking News!  The sky is blue.  The grass is green.  Water is wet.  Oh, and Clay Aiken is gay.

I have a friend who often uses the phrase, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s a DUCK!”  Never has this phrase been proven itself to be truer.  Clay Aiken has ‘quacked’ louder anyone else for the past five years, but has consistently denied that he is gay.  We knew better.

I do not know how he ever fit into that closet in the first place what with all of the gayness that was stuffed un there with him.

As I’ve said before, I like my freaks wacky and my homosexuals flaming.  That way everyone knows where everyone stands,…and they can be more eailsy avoided.  I may have to add him to the Creepy list.  I’m sure Kelly Ripa already has him on hers.
