Miss Bigot

I really didn't want to write about this, I didn't want to give her any more attention, she's already got way more than she deserves, but then "Miss California" Carrie Prejean just had to go and say this:

I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA." And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions.

Yep... Satan's fault. Couldn't possibly be the fact that you're a closed-minded bigot, that pesky Satan was tempting you at a beauty pageant! So apparently if you support gay marriage, you're doing the devil's work. Wow. You stay classy Christian conservatives!

This false sense of importance from evangelicals never ceases to amaze me. Yes, you're so important than Satan personally chose to tempt you with a question about gay marriage at the Miss USA pageant. I'm sorry, but when you say things like that, you should probably be committed to a mental institution. This isn't morality, you're just crazy. And while I'm on the subject doesn't the far-right already have enough intellectually-challenged, beauty pageant losers running around spreading their wacky religious beliefs?

Let me be clear, I couldn't possibly care any less about this whole "feud" (I'm rolling my eyes as I type that) with Perez Hilton. I think the world would be a better place without Perez Hilton's celebrity gossip and the Miss USA pageant, both things are complete wastes of time and I can't fathom how anyone could give a shit about either one of them. Seriously, what purpose do beauty pageants serve? Much like how there isn't a single reason to oppose gay marriage, I don't think there's a single reason to support beauty pageants.

Anyway, my problem isn't with her response to the question, it's with Prejean seizing an opportunity for fifteen minutes of fame, hopping on the homophobic bandwagon to promote the National Organization for Marriage. Much like Joe Wurzelbacher, Carrie Prejean is a know-nothing nobody. Her opinion is no more valid than mine (although I do have the ability to speak in complete sentences) yet no one can attack her because she just stated her opinion? Please. She's whining about her freedom of speech, but I got news for you, freedom of speech doesn't mean anything you say gets to go unchallenged. The Grand Wizard of the KKK has an opinion, that doesn't mean people don't get to call him a racist.

This vapid bimbo is nothing more than Anita Bryant 2.0, but unfortunately, no one has hit her in the face with a pie yet. Hiding behind her disgusting interpretation of Christianity, Prejean will continue to spread her bigotry because it gives her the attention she desperately seeks. Making yourself a star at the expense of someone else's rights, I guess a pretty face can't cover up an ugly soul.

She has her convictions and obviously the courage to stand up for them even when she knows that they are not popular in our society today. I commend her for this. She is mistaken in her view of Christianity, the Bible is very clear on matters of homosexuality. I fear you might be suffering from a biased point of view.

You're right I'm biased, but I'm definitely not suffering.

Being anti-gay is one of the few prejudices that is still supported by a majority and they are free to speak their minds. Fox News has no problem equating it to bestiality (I'll be discussing that very soon) and people on the floor of congress try to compare it to pedophilia, which is beyond offensive.

Prejean's taking heat because she wouldn't shut up about it and kept trying to blame someone else for her not winning the pageant. She's teamed up with the National Organization for Marriage, a far-right hate group and continues to milk these 15 minutes of fame.

The Bible is very clear on many things no civilized culture would engage in. In the Bible, it's okay to own slaves, stone people to death, and to sell your children. Conversely, the Bible says it's not okay to eat shellfish, wearing clothes made out of two different fibers or to approach a woman while she's menstruating.

Luckily, the Bible has no place in a society governed by laws. Practice whatever you want privately, but it's not a legitimate argument against gay marriage... as I always say, there are no legitimate arguments against gay marriage.

Is Perez Hilton actually Satan then? Being as he's the one that asked the question and all ...

Anyway, since when did "standing up for your convictions" become some noble thing to be lauded, instead of just the thing that you do because it's what you're supposed to do? Just like when everyone was all up Palin's ass about how she should be commended for not having an abortion ... where's that praise for every mother, if it's such a noble thing to do? I sure don't run around to all my friends who have babies and "commend" them for not having an abortion. Nor do I "commend" everyone for every comment they make that involves them "standing up for their convictions."

Not to mention this never works the other way around. If Carrie Prejean had said she supports gay marriage, not one conservative anywhere would be "commending" her for anything. Except maybe her tits.

I've posted several entries in my blog around Miss California and I've gotten to the point where I refuse to give her the attention. At first i was ok with her expressing her views and such but now she's trying to milk it and stay in the media spotlight. She didn't win and needs to stop blaming everyone

Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and most Democrats, as well as the majority of Americans are such bigots!!

Razor said...

If you actively oppose the civil right's of another, you are a bigot. You let me know when Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and most Democrats support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage and I will happily call them a bigot too. Ms. Prejean's association with the right-wing hate group NOM is bigotry, plain and simple.
