Default Two Faced Donald Fires Miss California

I've never been a fan of beauty pageants, but maybe next time they should just put Mr. Trump and Perez Hilton in dresses and be done with it...

California beauty queen shocked by firing
On NBC's "Today" show, Prejean, a student at San Diego Christian College, explained what went through her mind when pageant judge Perez Hilton, an openly homosexual celebrity gossip blogger, asked her about same-sex marriage:

"I knew at that moment after I answered the question, I knew, I was not going to win because of my answer, because I had spoken from my heart, from my beliefs and for my God," she said. "I wouldn't have answered it differently. The way I answered may have been offensive. With that question specifically, it's not about being politically correct. For me it was being biblically correct."

Yes Brother Parrish I agree with you. I used to watch the Apprentice but may stop watching it now. Carrie Prejean physical beauty is only match by her Spiritual Beauty, she is definitely a virteous woman(Proverbs 31:10)
She took a stand for God and may God richly bless her in Jesus name.

You make a good point, she did take a stand and will probably do better as a result of this.

Let's face it; Prajean was hacked and canned, NOT for stating that homosexality is wrong for everyone, NOT for quoting Romans Chapter 1, NOT for attacking the activist himself, but simply for replying that SHE thought marriage should be reserved for a man and a woman. This is the same view held by presidents of the United States, however this is now an unacceptable view in the eyes of radical homosexual activists. The issue is redefining marriage and family.

Incidentally, now that marriage has begun to be redefined by states, we see exactly what traditional marriage advocates predicted; Polygamists are already demanding multi-sex marriages under the law:

The pink agendists are rapidly moving into the public schools with their goal of promoting this behavior on our kids. We have moved beyond tolerance to promotion, and that includes the NEA. And if you are not willing to promote it, you are considered a hater. Last week, as Obama proclaimed June as "LGBT Month," I was reminded that the agenda of these activists is already at work in education and government and has far more sweeping implications for all of us, and whatever values we may hold, more here...

I'm sorry, folks, but I have a real problem with seeing virtue while at the same time watching a clip of this young woman prancing and jiggling in front of everyone in "severely less than modest" apparel to gain a crown for her physical beauty. I have a problem with a woman who has her figure "enhanced" purely for the purpose of getting the attention of every male within sight. That she was willing to speak her mind and stick by her beliefs is honorable, but "virtuous" is far more than that.

But maybe it is just me.

Bro. Tim, yes I agree with you, not sure that word "virtue" applies here either.
That's why I stated up front I've never been a fan of beauty pageants.

However, I have found over the years that the easiest thing for me to do is judge others for their vocation or actions. The girl is a professional model. Maybe now she can "go and sin no more," but to me the issue is not about her. It's about the unfair treatment bestowed upon anyone who DARES say something about homosexual agendas—or in this case just something about a man and a woman in marriage. And this goes way beyond beauty contests, it's in the classrooms, the workplace, the government. You can throw stones at the woman if you want, I agree with you there is no redeeming value to the contest, but that's really not the issue. I hope you can see past the bathing suit and understand my point. I think the last thing she needs now is Christians joining the homosexuals in bashing her.

I don't intend to "bash" Miss Prajean. We do not know enough of the story to judge whether or not her firing was justified. It does appear that there is an agenda to fire her for her remarks by the California committee using a manufactured excuse, but we may not have all the facts. I just cannot allow a post that compares her to the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31 to go unanswered. Had that not been posted, I would have remained silent on the matter.
