I just went to your blog. Very nice.
I don’t know what we are disagreeing on, as you seem to line up almost exactly with me on every issue and candidate.
Yes you are just as pretty as Carrie Prejean and I do think you could have easily been Miss California or whatever Miss...you wanted to be.
My point in this entire effort is to say this: We can not and must not be excited when the simple truth is told. That is foundational. We must not be happy and giddy when a beauty pageant contestant defends traditional marriage. That is undeniable. These are basic truths that need no defending. We also must not rush to the defense of actions that are spiritually harmful.
It is so very sad that Carrie Prejean is now going through a public humiliation. First attempted by the media, then successfully waged by Carrie’s actions herself. She would have been the poster child she desired but for the pornographic content of her videos. She is now joining Monica Lewinski as a media joke.
That is the fall. It is hard and it is abrupt. Who can she now minister to, or lead by example? She can’t.
I am not writing about you in any manner shape or form. We need strong women like you who are attractive and will get the media attention in order to hold the banner high and protect the culture of life, liberty and our Godly pursuits.
If you don’t find my grammer too annoying, I am more than willing to continue the conversation. I am going to launch my Sarah Palin blog soon to bolster her in my home state.
Keep up the wonderful work on your blog and your steadfast loyalty to our God and country.
This is where I don't agree. See, to you and to me, and to most of us, the definition of marriage is indeed foundational and not very controversial. That being said, some folks out there don't see it our way. And many of those folks are the gatekeepers of our popular culture, and they exert either an explicit or tacit pressure in situations like Prejean found herself in. A mistake in their eyes means losing the competition, and responding to the question of: do you believed every U.S. state should legalize same-sex marriage, I believe that most, if not all, beauty pageant contestants would buckle under that pressure and have responded, yes. Yet, Carrie went against the dominant cultural liberal-leftist mindset and and responded NO, knowing that the risk was going to be huge and indeed, it was.
So I give her credit for risking all and losing all to express something that is so basic to you and me. And indeed it cost her the pageant crown, her reputation, and severely impacted her future in mainstream media endeavors.
There is no question that she did wrong, and I fear for many young people out there in this electronic era are quick to use facebook, twitter, myspace, etc to share videos and love letters not realizing that in time it could come back to haunt them. Maybe Carrie was one of them who thought she was never going to be famous or be the center of a national controversy that pitted her against powerful gays of this nation.
And thank you very much for your comments about my blog.
Nah, I don't really pick on people's grammar, God knows I make mistakes myself. I just wanted to rib you a bit since I thought you were harsh on Carrie.
And listen, any friend of Sarah is a friend of mine!
