Admittedly I'm uncomfortable with fundies, a.k.a. "born again Christians," but I must say that Carrie Prejean deserves strong kudos for taking her stand in the Miss U.S.A. pageant. This young lady, Miss California, with her simple and clear answer on the same-sex marriage question, has done as much to expose the hypocrisy of the loony left than a year of the best writing from the likes of National Review, the Wall Street Journal, Rush Limbaugh, and a host of the best of conservative commentators put together.
They asked her what she thought about same-sex marriage, not what they thought. But Perez Hilton and others are now complaining that she's a dumb blonde? The clear and evident truth is that she was not being a dumb blonde, but fearlessly giving her opinion about it (that marriage should be between a man and a woman--an opinion shared, incidentally, by virtually all traditional religions of all the history of the world).
This lady is one class act, and smart, too. If she had given the "world peace" answer to that question, she would have won, and nobody would have noticed. Now, the world is all paying attention, and everyone can see for themselves how ludicrous the wild and wacky loons truly are.
