yet another Carrie Prejean fan

OK, in case you've been living in a cave (or without TV and internet like me), Here is an interview with the famous Miss California (Carrie Prejean) who would rather say that she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman than be Miss USA. I have to say I'm impressed with her poise, intelligence, and strength of character. And I'm not even going to add a tasteless remark about how good she looks in a swimsuit because when everyone else is doing it, it isn't cool any more.

She is wonderfully positive about the whole thing and is forgiving of Perez Hilton, the man who cost her the crown with his spite and bitterness. Here is another interview where you can compare the two or them. Hilton is almost comical in his blatant hypocrisy. He comes to a non-religious, non-political forum and asks a directly political question with strong religious overtones, and he is upset that Prejean brought politics and religion into it (and actually, she didn't even bring religion into it at the pageant, only in her interviews afterward). Meanwhile, Hilton doesn't think that there should be political or religious tests for Miss USA, but does think that having political or religious beliefs that offend him should disqualify someone for Miss USA. Prejean shouldn't be allowed to be Miss USA because she offends him and a lot of other gay people not by intention, but just because of what she believes, but he sees nothing wrong with going around doing everything he can to intentionally offend Prejean and others who share her beliefs.

I wish in one of his interviews, someone would have the guts to ask him if he voted for Obama, who expressed exactly the same view on marriage as Carrie Prejean.
