Miss California was asked by Perez Hilton if she thought other states should follow Vermont's lead and pass gay marriage. She basically answered she believed we live in a country that is great because we all get to decide but she personally believes marriage is between a man and a woman.
This may not be the PC answer or the answer the pageant was hoping for but they ask the question. It took guts for her to go on national television and tell the truth, stick to her convictions, and stand up for what she believes in. She is not alone either. Her own state wouldn't pass Prop 8.
Now she is all over the news and youtube being demonized because she had the nerve to answer the question honestly and express her opinion, one that many other Americans have as well.
I find it amazing that we ask for someones opinion on an issue but when that opinion is not the answer we want to hear we go buzurk. Like they alone are the hold out!
But for some reason we believe in this country you no longer have the right to your opinion. If you dare have one on an issue that is controversial you had better be prepared for the worst bigotry you will ever experience.
We seem to believe bigotry, hate and ignorance is only one sided. Well I applaud Miss California for having the guts to answer the question, while some other contestants passed on answering less controversial questions on issues like Universal Health Care.
Even now as she faces the wrath for her opinion she continues to be the only one who is remaining calm and possess the ability to keep her composure and accept, "Not everyone will agree with me, and that's okay".
What a great nation where in order to speak freely you have to say what the other side wants to hear!
