First of all, I want to state that I didn’t watch nor do I have any opinion about the Miss U.S.A Pageant. However, I do want to commend Miss California, Carrie Prejean, for the comments she made in response to Perez Hilton’s question (during Sunday’s telecast) of whether she believes in gay “marriage”. Prejean stated, “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”
I don’t know anything about this young lady, but there’s a good chance that her honesty cost her the crown in this year’s pageant. I know even less about the inner workings of beauty pageants, but it’s pretty obvious that answering this question in a non-politically correct way seriously hurts your chances to win. The impressive thing is that she stood up for the institution of marriage, not caring how it affected her chances to win a prestigious title. Furthermore, she told Fox News that she has no regrets and is pleased with her answer. I consider that to be very courageous and something that we all need to imitate.
In this crazy world of ours, there are some who are trying to redefine the meaning of marriage. If we remain silent, they may eventually win this battle. Ultimately, this will destroy the sanctity of family life and cause an increased decay of morality in our society. When people start to tell you that marriage can be between a man and a woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man, a dog and a man…it’s time to say “no it can’t”! Don’t let them try to confuse the issue with ridiculous accusations of hate and prejudice. This is about right and wrong, good and evil and has nothing to do with being judgmental. It is up to us, to speak out for what’s right.
Good job, Carrie!
