Posted on 04/24/2009 3:40:28 AM PDT by Scanian
Beauty contests have turned ugly. Pageants used to celebrate good, old-fashioned values, but today a young lady cannot be crowned Miss USA unless she supports same-sex marriage. Talk about tripping up on the runway.
On Sunday, Miss California Carrie Prejean was rejected for the Miss USA crown because she defended traditional marriage. One of the pageant's five judges, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, bluntly asked Miss California if she supported same-sex marriage. Her response was: "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, and that's how I think it should be ... ." Mr. Hilton told ABC News that "She lost it because of that question. She was definitely the front-runner before that."
Mr. Hilton, who is a homosexual, later called Miss Prejean a string of vulgarities unfit for print, said she had "half a brain," and fumed that he would have ripped the tiara off her head had she won. The judge explained that the San Diego Christian College student wasn't fit for the title because, "Miss USA should represent all Americans, and with her statement she instantly was divisive and alienated millions of gays and lesbians, their families, friends and supporters."

I wish she had simply laughed, and said, "Of course not!"
How could they put this -thing- in judgement over anyone?
More Trump cunning. He just got millions in free publicity.
that piece of crap Trump was on FOX saying the question had nothing to do with her losing, while his own “hand picked” judge says the opposite.
If she said something she did not believe in, but felt compelled to say to be more PC, that too would have “alienated” a lot of people such as the majority of Americans who believe “marriage” is between one man and one woman. Totally ridiculous. Perez the Twit did nothing for his cause, which is universal acceptance of homosexuality as the default lifestyle.
My choice would’ve been if, after she received the question from Lavandeira (Hilton), she replied, “People like YOU getting married?? ROTFLMAO!!
I take pleasure in visualizing what would have happened to Mr. “Hilton” had his family not left Cuba.
Take the same position on queer marriage as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and get smeared for it. Amazing.
More proof that liberals are totally losing it. George Orwell was a little early with "1984".
Since Trump is the quintessential obscenity, why would he condemn such in another piece of humanoid debris?
seven replies and no photos of the young lady in question. How am I supposed to make a guilty/not guilty judgment?
My hope would be that there would be plenty of healthy red blooded males that would have pummeled that little twit into a blob of mush.
Not amazing at all.
Everyone knows Clinton and Obama are lying.
It is also annoying to hear homo apologists on cable shows saying that “Hilton” was a disgrace to the pansies and not typical of those people. Bull. My experience is that even if they don’t say those things, the homos think them.
Not me, I would not touch that POS with your hand.
(As far as Im concerned all Gays suck.)
A sickness where there is no cure-shame be to them.
I would not be surprised if that question was asked in the hopes of getting the answer it did. Why would that Godless bone smuggler post a video to make it appear that she did not win? The Media took the bait and the issue of gay marriage is all over the place. Particularly proposition 8 in California.
“Tits and ass have never been Christian value.”
Well when I see a good pair of tits and a smoking ass I drop on my knees and thank God for the beauty of his creation. So one could argue that it helps bring you closer to God.
“he just got....free publicity”
TRump was on THe Factor last night, and said the same thing,to the effect that “it’s being discussed on the Factor, how stupid could it be”—the usual “you can’t argue with success” marketplace argument from Trump.
The really interesting thing is that this Hilton “guy”
could’ve asked that question of ANY contestant, couldn’t he have? Instead he picked the wholesome blonde, who his gay instincts told him was probably straight as an arrow,
and he did this STRICTLY IN ORDER TO PROVOKE, AND FURTHER POLARIZE THE ISSUE. The aftermath, when Mr. Hilton went into an idiot diatribe about ripping the tiara off her head if she’d won, AND the interesting claim of his that she lost BECAUSE she’s narrow=minded, shows what his agenda is, and just how hopeless the whole issue is in the public realm to ever be discussed objectively.
It should read, “...make it appear she did not win due to her answer....?” Oops
Helping them redecorate their house, helping them pick flattering outfits, yes.
But judging them?
(...and how did a loud, rude, obnoxious young TWIT get named to the panel of judges anyway? And how is "gay marriage" related to a bunch of bathing beauties anyway -- there is NO personal interest in it for him except the risk of having less mean available for him...)
Trump put the little fudge packer on that panel specifically to create a controversy like the one that he did. Trump has never been one to turn up his nose at some extra publicity, however sleazy.
And I’m sure we can conclude that Lavandeira would have picked on them with the same gusto that he showed toward Miss Prejean, if given the chance.
To each his own. Just call me “nature boy” when it comes to that.
Behold, perfection from whence was once imperfection!
This is a window into the future of the PC driven USSA.
A Beauty contestent is judged by her character (or lack thereof if you believe the “judge”)
A president is elected in large part for the way he looks.
The United States has passed critical mass for stupidity.
John 15:18-19 “If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.”
...and we will sit back & take it once again.
I have long since refused to recognize the validity of democratic candidates who are “elected” to office.
There are no laws that say anyone has to recognize obummer as a president. We only have to obey the law.
There is no reason to recognize anyone but Miss California as Miss USA. None. Miss California should be crowned in a separate ceremony and given twice as much money as the runner up and given speaking engagements. Further no homosexals lesbians, or liberals should be allowed as judges. We should hold our own USA pageant.
That’s a very good verse to keep up front in this day and age.
Why is it that conservatives and Christians are always the ones who are divisive and never the ones who are alienated?
It would seem to me that these terms work both ways.
Maybe it’s because we consider propagandizing and agitation beneath our dignity and leave them to the libs. We really need to stop worrying about appearances and start going for the throat just like the enemy does. We are more numerous than them so we should prevail against the stupid twits.
Homosexuals have always been a secret society. In business organizations they recognize each other and take care of their own. In business they destroy those who they perceive as threats.
If their true vicious pettiness were widely known they would be readily perceived as the threats they really are.
You do not want to touch a homosexual. Aids and other communicable stds are blood transferable. Someone could have hit him with a cane.
It works just as well to get people to tune in. People like train wrecks.
Here’s the perfect answer for Carrie: “I find myself agreeing with our President on this issue. As he stated in his campaign several times, he believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman. I support him in that belief.”
They are truly dangerous. What they amount to is a pack of catty females with testosterone. Very bad combo. Previous generations knew what they were doing by marginalizing them.
Well said, Sir.
If you can tough them, they’re not fake.
In this same fashion, the 'abnormal sex' (abnormal = 'out of the norms') civil rights movement in this country has moved from the fight for non-harassment (Stonewall Riots 1969) to this kind of thing where virulent advocates REQUIRE not just acceptance but rather positive public advocacy of their sexuality. I am morally certain that this odious caricature of a judge was deliberate in selecting to give Miss California this question in the wake of the success of Prop.8. The response of the California sponsoring organization in falling all over itself to cave into the obvious bias and join in the criticism of an honest answer by Ms Prejean was equally if not more sickening.
A fine example of Political Correctness not just by the most easily offended but by the most virulently vocal. My head reels and I wonder what society will look like if this idiocy prevails like it is doing now.
Not me, I would not touch that POS with your hand.
I'd be happy to defend that young lady, but I am guessing she could kick his hind end and not work up a sweat.
Yep... these guys are walking cases.
