Perez Hilton, (is he related to Paris?), caused a controversy when he asked Miss California if she supported same-sex marriage. Miss California said she did not support it and is now in a commercial supporting traditional families--you know, the social unit that is the fabric of our society. No matter what your stance, same-sex marriages will never produce offspring and therefore will only contribute to the depopulation and disintegration of our society. What creates, and sustains, a society are heterosexual couples.
Now Perez Hilton (I've actually never heard of this guy--I think it's a guy--before this) is calling for Miss California to step down and give up her crown as well as her place as the first runner up in the Miss USA (I think) pageant. Why? Because she was courageous enough to voice her opinion that contradicts the very loud minority in California that supports gay marriage and is still angry about Proposition 8. The pageant board is also taking revenge on Miss California by releasing private medical information about her breast augmentation--information that only surfaced, conveniently, after her stand against same-sex marriage.
Didn't California vote on gay marriage? Didn't it fail? Didn't the majority vote for the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman? Wasn't that the 2nd vote in which voters declined same-sex marriage? The voters have spoken.
So, Perez Hilton, get over it. Stop trying to damage Miss California's reputation. Stop being such a poor sport. Accept that the majority of voters in California don't want same-sex marriage.
And Miss California--you go, girl. You speak up for traditional marriage and you hold your head high. We need more representatives like you to speak up for those of us who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. You have every right to represent the majority of California voters. Even more, you have the right to have an opinion.
And while we're on the subject, I'd like to know when a stance on a political issue ever dictated who won a beauty pageant.
