The Carrie Prejean Miss California USA controversy

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

http://celebrity.rightpundits.com/?p=5866

Carrie Prejean made a big mistake. She exercised her free speech rights when asked her opinion about gay marriage. She said that she believes that "marriage should be between a man and a woman" and all hell broke loose. The pro gay marriage crowd is in an uproar.

Whatever happened to "you are entitled to your opinion?" Carrie is not trying to impose her views on anyone else. But she was asked and she candidly gave her opinion. But I guess you can't do that any more. If you don't toe the line and give the politically correct opinion of the day, then you are in hot water.

It's really too bad. This used to be a country that valued free speech. And after all, opposition to gay marriage is a mainstream position among the American people. Never once has gay marriage ever been sanctioned by a vote of the people. It has gone down to defeat in every state where it has been tried, including liberal California.

But that's not good enough for the gay marriage crowd. You either agree with them or else. And if you don't agree with them you had better not try to win the Miss USA competition. Political correctness is apparently more important than looks or talent. The fix is in and the left would say that we had better get used to it, like it or not.

Yesterday I wrote about the totalitarian tendencies that the left exhibits when it gains political poser. Well, here we have another example of that. Folks, we have to agree to disagree sometimes, but the extreme left will have none of it. It's really scary.

I do believe however that Carrie will get the last laugh. She did not win the Miss USA competition, but she has gained much more publicity over this incident than she would have ever got had she won and there has been no controversy. Look for great things from Carrie Prejean. God bless her.
