miss california carrie prejean gay marriage

This story keeps getting more scandalous! Miss California Carrie Prejean became an overnight hero for conservative Christians after her now famous beauty pageant response, but her efforts to subsequently paint herself as a martyr were met with charges of lying from those she accused.

“She chose to stand up in church and in front of the media and say something that was a lie,” [San Diego public relations representative Roger] Neal said. “No one ever said, ‘You must apologize to the gay community,’ and no one ever said, ‘Don’t talk about your faith or your religion.’ Those two things never came out of anybody’s mouth.”

Prejean didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Monday.

    Awesome, Neal– I agree with this cartoon 100%.

    Still, though, isn’t it ridiculous that everyone is paying so much attentiont to the Miss America pageant? Like Miss America makes a difference in anyone’s day-to-day life… give me a break.

    Methinks its easier to play the martyr right now and absorb all of the attention that goes along with it then it is to fade into the background. Her 15 minutes will be over soon– hopefully sooner now that the swine flu is dominating headlines.

    I agree. People have every right to call her a moron, a bigot and a liar, and I hope that never changes.

    What in Hell do you mean she “paint(ed) herself as a martyr”? Even if she never opened her mouth; she’s been dragged through the mud by the media!! For no other reason than answering a question she was asked!! Then she was told to “apologize” for offending gays! When the President, Vice President, and most of the general public feel the exact same way as she does about gay marriage!! Unbelievable! You are obviously not paying attention. And where did this notion come from that Christians can’t participate in a beauty pageant? It’s not like it’s a strip joint nor a whore house. But some are making it out to be.

    If she had answered the question to certain people’s liking; none of this would be happening; and you know it.
