By now you've all heard about the controversy which erupted at the Miss USA Pageant a few days ago. When judge Perez Hilton asked Miss California Carrie Prejean a question pertaining to same-sex "marriage," he received an answer he didn't like. An answer which probably cost Carrie Prejean the title. Perez Hilton asked, "Vermont recently became the 4th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?" To which Carrie Prejean responded, "..in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you very much."
Because Miss Prejean had the audacity to answer truthfully the question put to her, judge Perez Hilton would later refer to her as a "dumb bitch." I've said it before and I'll say it again: the homosexual movement is, for the most part, a hate movement which seeks to impose a moral revolution. It is necessary to demonize those of us who are morally opposed to homosexuality and same-sex "marriage," and to portray us as evil as possible so that the general public will feel uncomfortable around us.
Pope Benedict XVI has said, in his book Truth and Tolerance, that: "In the consciousness of mankind today, freedom is largely regarded as the greatest good there is, after which all other good things have to take their place. In legislation, artistic freedom and freedom of speech take precedence over every other moral value. Values that conflict with freedom, that could lead to its being restricted, appear as shackles, as 'taboos,' that is to say, as relics of archaic prohibitions and anxieties. Political action has to demonstrate that it furthers freedom. Even religion can make an impression only by depicting itself as a force for freedom for man and for mankind. In the scale of values with which man is concerned, to live a life worthy of humanity, freedom seems to be the truly fundamental value and to be the really basic human right of them all. The concept of truth, on the other hand, we greet rather with some suspicion: we recall how many opinions and systems have already laid claim to the concept of truth; how often the claim to truth in that way has been the means of limiting freedom. In addition there is the scepticism of fostered by natural science regarding anything that cannot be precisely explained or demonstrated: that all seems in the final analysis to be just subjective judgment, which cannot claim to be obligatory for people in general. The modern attitude to truth shows itself most succinctly in Pilate's words: What is truth? Anyone who claims to be serving truth with his life, and with his words and actions, must be prepared to be regarded as an enthusiast or a fanatic.." (p. 231-232).
Because Carrie Prejean has stood up for truth, because she has remained firm in her convictions, she will now be demonized by homosexual activists like Perez Hilton and regarded as a "fanatic." But intelligent and fair minds will recognize the real fanatic. Most are saying that Carrie Prejean's answer cost her the title of Miss USA. I say that she is the real Miss USA.
