Last night at the Miss Universe competition she fielded a question by Perez Hilton about her feelings on gay marriage.
She spoke her mind--against it--much to the disappointment to Mr. Perez. And it's apparent this cost her the Miss Universe crown.
Here's the latest news memo from FOX News:
Other news headlines stated that Miss California stumbled over the question. Watching the video, I thought she answered it right away and straight-up.
Here's a YouTube video of "the question":
I only watched a few moments of Mr. Hilton's rant and was appalled when he called her a "dumb bitch." He also claimed she was booed when she responded. Maybe so, but I couldn't tell because of the substantial cheering from the audience. No, there wasn't any standing-ovation or thunderous applause. But I didn't hear any booing either.
It amazes me how intolerant these--supposedly--liberals are of other people's opinions.
Fortunately, there's a large amount of support for Miss Prejean.
While big stories regarding the direction of our nation dominate the news; Obama's massive spending package, closing Guantanamo Bay, etc; I find myself more concerned about the subtle undercurrents moving within our society. It's small items like whitewashing Obama's profile on Wikipedia, which I posted on 9 March 09, that I also find disturbing. Such currents can go unnoticed--until it's too late.
Future beauty queen contestants hoping to win the crown will answer similar questions "correctly" according to politically correct dogma.
