Bravo Miss California
Just a quick shout out in support of Miss California and her willingness to voice her true opinion on same sex marriage during the Miss USA pageant Sunday evening. I think a lot of young women would have given the politically correct answer or would have avoided giving a solid answer at all. But not Miss California! She expressed it was not her desire to hurt anyone's feelings, but gave her honest opinion that she feels marriage should be between one man and one woman. And it is likely she lost the crown due to her answer. She came in first runner up next to Miss North Carolina.
This morning on the news they interviewed Perez Hilton, who asked Miss California what her stance was on the subject. He said he marked her low in her response because she was too religious sounding (she never mentioned God, Christ, or any other church-related phrase) and was not able to give an answer that was "savvy" enough. Personally, I doubt Mr. Hilton would be saying the same thing if the tables were turned. If Miss California had spoke up in support of gay marriage he would not have marked her response low because it offended some people; he would have cheered her on.
So although Miss California only came in as first runner up at the pageant, she is the winner in my book.
