This is obviously personal to you. She, meaning Carrie Prejean, the object of the conversation, not you, the person we aren’t talking about...or are we?

My use of language...You still harp on grammatical errors instead of dealing with the logic of my argument. You get personal with me instead of discussing the talking points.

Will you call me a racist next and end the discussion?

You think I’m a dunce? Are you implying that marriage is not between an man and a woman, water is not wet and the sun does not give off light?

What on earth is your point besides insulting me?

I never said that details of her private life nullified her statement about marriage. In fact I said just the opposite. I said that what she said was nothing more than telling the truth.

There is no constitutional right to privacy. You must give your tax returns if you run for office, there is the freedom of information act. There are many cases where your privacy is null and void. Carrie’s situation is null and void the moment she sent it to her boyfriend and used public communication systems to do so.

Privacy is a right to those that keep it. Those that don’t keep their privacy, such as sending masterbation information across the airwaves, is rendered null and void.

I applaud Carrie for speaking the truth in an age of lies. I will not defend her indiscretion in an effort to bolster her telling the truth. Integrity doesn’t work that way.

I don’t know what about this literal point offends you. I have not attacked you or Carrie personally. I have merely pointed out that she is in a pickle that won’t go away, due to her stupidity.

Yes it is stupid to make the private, and personal into a video and think it would not be distributed at a latter date. That stupidity alone is alarming. that is what she should be telling young women...I was stupid...don’t do it...don’t do pageants...don’t use your body to further your desires....Godly principles.

She shouldn’t be trying to defend her breast implants. She shouldn’t be defending the porno-lite video.

My daughters are taught better. I blame Carrie’s father almost as I blame her. A woman that is secure in her father’s love and knows what to expect from men will not behave in this manner. My daughters do not behave in this manner.

Sorry that i typed your arm off, but I don’t know why you are offended by my trying to uphold truth, decency, marriage and chastity. And most of all Humility.

God Bless you,

Michael

Regarding the Constitutional right to privacy, while there is no literal right to privacy explicit in the Constitution, modern jurisprudence (rightly or wrongly) has acknowledged that such a right exists, using some controversial reasoning.  Announcing that no such right exists, as you do, just isn't accurate.  But it certainly isn't absolute, in any event.

I raised the issue only to point out that Prejean's dicey videos were evidently intended for private use, not a commercial use.  Apparently, she didn't seek to make money from these videos - they were never intended for public consumption, but rather for a private exchange.  Of course, this decision was foolish, and few conservatives would argue that creating the pics/videos was a good idea, let alone sharing them with her boyfriend at the time.

She is a public figure now so naturally, she understandably gives up a lot of her privacy.  My main point wasn't so much to get into constitutional law, so my phraseology and emphasis on that may have been a bit misplaced.  But the general principle is the same - her private sex videos to a paramour may have been a bad idea, but it was a private bad idea, and has no bearing on any moral stand she makes about same sex marriage today.
