I know that of all the countless things going on in the world, and most of them of the utmost importance, why am I blogging about what happened at the Miss U.S.A. Pagent? I usually abhor such things, and find them a momnumental waste of time and resources. I think it's drawing a lot of attention, even mine, over the one contestant's position on gay marriage.
There is a lot of talk that Miss California lost a crown that might well have been hers over her position on gay marriage. It started when this Perez Hilton guy (who is a "celebrity blogger" by the way. He actually makes a pretty good living off it. It shows how much America has devolved into a nation that produces and manufactures absolutely nothing of significance. If it were, "want fries with that" would likely be a part of Mr. Hilton's regular vocabulary) asked Miss Calfornia basically how she felt about gay marriage. Miss California, in a kinda incoherent answer (similar to that Miss Teen USA contestant who I poked fun at in the past), basically stated that she felt that marriage should be one "between a man and a woman".
Okay, that's a perfectly normal answer, and a position that millions and millions of Americans have. I go the other way, although I'm not gay myself, I think homosexuals should have the right to be unhappily married like the rest of us. Anyway, Mr. Hilton took umbarge to it, and apparently used his position as a judge and as an openly gay man, to nix Miss California's dreams of wearing the crown.
According to Hilton, it wasn't her answer, but in how she answered it. What way should she have answered it? Is Hilton suggesting that she lie about her beliefs in marriage, just so she would have stood a better chance at winning? Isn't that unethical? In any case, I think it's admirable how Ms. Prejean took a possibly unpopular position, even under enormous pressure (as the flamer Perez Hilton looked on)and at great cost to herself. If Mr. Hilton did not want a controversial answer, he should not have asked a controversial question. Let alone use his power as a judge to cost this woman a crown that might have been hers. Shame on him.
