Kudos to Carrie Prejean for standing up for what she believes. She didn’t wimp out and give a “politically correct” answer–she gave her opinion, which was what she was asked.
I admire her spunk.
Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that fears the LORD, she shall be praised!
Edit: I just realized something. The Perez person said “With that answer, she instantly was divisive and alienated millions of gays and lesbians, their family, their friends, and supporters.”
So? She was asked for her opinion on a very hot topic. If she had said that she was very much in favor of gay marriage, she would have been instantly divisive and alienated millions of Christians. What’s the difference?
The fact is that a highly controversial question like that will automatically cause someone to be upset with you. If you try to straddle the fence, you not only fail to answer the question, but you also earn the scorn of both sides. You have to choose one side or the other. She chose to tell the truth, which is always the best course.
What becomes quite obvious in this is that Perez Hilton is a poor sport. Because she didn’t play the game the way he wanted it to be played, he upset the game board and scattered the pieces. He pouted and called her names, he behaved like a spoiled brat. Her response? “I’ll pray for him. I can tell he’s hurting–I feel sorry for him.”
No question in my mind who won here! She’s a real woman, while he isn’t even half a man!
