God Tests Miss California’s Faith

In case you haven’t seen already…

Two things…

She did not actually answer the question. The question was: should states follow suit in allowing gay marriage? She said that we can choose between “same sex marriage” and “opposite” marriage, and then says that she believes that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s not clear whether she wants to impose her personal (bigotted) beliefs about it on other people through the government. It’s just vague.

My favourite bit, though, is where she says “that’s how I was raised and that’s how I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.”

I’m cynical about beauty queens, yes, but Americans do seem to care more about what a person says because they’re pretty than because they have fancy degrees and years of experience. Miss USA is also used as a spokesmodel for certain causes, although rarely political. Still, it’s slightly unsettling to see somebody essentially say “I don’t have any independent thinking skills, I just do what my parents told me, and I want to represent your country!”

I leave you with a quote from her interview with the most unbiased media source in all the world, Fox News.

This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I’m glad I stayed true to myself.

  2. yeesh. god cares so much about you he puts you head to head with perez hilton, but he clearly doesn’t give a shit about thai sex slaves.

  3. Saw that and laughed. She gave her answer to FoxNews, not to the judges at the pageant. And if she thinks that was a test of her faith, she’s in for a lot of surprises as she heads into adulthood and the professional world.

    Yeah, right. She botches an important question, und when she doesn’t win it’s because she violated the unwritten rules of the gay mafia. And now right-wingers all around the country are using her for their own uses. What a farce.

    Yeah she’s a bigot, cause clearly anyone who has an opinion other than your own liberal one is one.

    And if your goal is to please the judges, do you really want to go out and say I am for or against gay marriage? Politicians don’t even do that cause they don’t want to alienate people. I don’t think she considered that, but you aren’t being very fair to her..

  7. Maybe you should have the Picard facepalm pic below that quote.

  8. There HAS to be some correlation between the public following Bush and this nut, except that Bush wasn’t pretty.

    For all your aptitude it would seem you lack normal levels of basic comprehension if you believe Miss California’s reply did not satisfy the prerequisite of the question… unless you purposely choose to ignore her rationale because of your pre-conditioned bias. Granted, her exchange was not the most eloquently worded display of intelligence to ever be portrayed and she did seem to express a little more opinion than the original inquiry required, but the fundamental question was correctly answered.

    “Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage.”

    Miss Prejean obviously believes that ultimately it is the people’s (not the State’s) decision whether to legalize same-sex marriage. Your liberalistic tendencies demand that the State, rather than it’s constituents, be the party involved in the validation of same-sex marriage, which is the reason why you refuse to acknowledge the preciseness of her answer.

  10. Disregard that. I suck cocks.

    Whoever posted the above is hilarious! I bet he gets laughs in the real world all the time for his amusing and original wisecracks!
