PC or BC?
Carrie Prejean, Miss Calafornia, lost her chance to gain her most sought after prize to remain biblicaly correct. She was topped to win a national contests and only five questions stood in the way of her receiving the title Miss America. Unfortuntaly for her, one of the questions given by Judge Perez Hilton, an open gay, was her thoughts on gay marriage. She decided to follow her conscience and declare her Christian beliefs in one man to one women union. “In my country, and in my family, I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman,” Miss California said at Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas. It is believed by many that her frank answer probally cost her the crown. She finished the contest as first runner up. Same sex marriage is high on the agenda at the moment in the USA as individual states are voting on whether to legalise civil partnerships. Her comments on National TV have certainly stirred up a hornets nest. Miss Prejean, now labeled as a 'gay hater' is unmoved. She believes she did the right thing by following her own conscience. Many agree the controversial question was loaded and that her religious persuasion was known by the judge. Whatever your feelings on beauty pageants you have to admire the young lady for her gutsy faith. It is my opinion that political correctness for Christians is nothing other than compromise. We must always be Bilicaly correct, no matter what it costs us.
