Who would have thought that the Miss USA pageant could become a political battleground? But since Miss California contestant Carrie Prejean expressed her opposition to same-sex marriage during Sunday night’s pageant, there has been heated debate about her comments. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who asked the question about whether more states should allow gay marriage, has been blasting Prejean. Others, such as commentator Roland Martin, have defended Prejean for being honest about her beliefs. Prejean sticks by her answer, which she thinks cost her the crown. “It’s not about being politically correct. For me, it’s about being biblically correct,” she said in an interview this week.
I didn’t watch the pageant, and I’m not sure I’ve ever watched it — even when it was held in Wichita. Is gay marriage a normal type of question for contestants? I thought they just talked about world peace and ending hunger.
