Miss California Bashed For Honest Answer on Gay Marriage

The Miss America pageant is all about diversity, charity, and tolerance for the views of others. Just kidding — it’s about being a cookie-cutter liberal who parrots the prevailing views of the nuts and fruits who run the competition. Miss California just found that out.

“Heeeere she iiiisssss — Miiiisssss Hooomo-phoooooooobe“:

When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said “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.”

What’s funny is that Prejean was the runner-up in the competition, so those who direct the pageant know that the sort of honesty that leads to voicing opinions that the diverse and super-tolerant judges don’t want to hear needs to be put down quickly before it spreads. Enter Keith Lewis:

Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, tells FOXNews.com that he was “saddened” by Prejean’s statement.

“As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman,” said Lewis in a statement. “I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family.”

Then why was the question allowed to be asked?

Here’s a video of Miss California’s answer and Perez Hilton getting all snitty while the audience applaudes. The only thing Prejean did wrong was to say “no offense to anybody” after her opinion. Screw ’em… nobody on the other side ever apologizes for offending people. Otherwise, well done, Miss Cal:

Monday’s Column: Comedy Bailout ’09

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily has a little fun at what the field of comedy would be like if it were run by the government.

The owner of L.A.’s Laugh Factory is seeking some federal bailout money to sponsor a comedy tour. He’s forgetting that once you take their money, you have to do what they say, which got me to wondering what “federalized comedy” might be like.

For a few spins on old jokes, redesigned by the government, give a read to “Too funny to fail” for the whole story on the nationalization of comedy.
