I still wonder why it is only politically acceptable to go against Biblical and moral teachings. Had Ms. Prejean not opposed gay marriage, she would have been cheered and named Miss USA. Instead, she spoke her opinion, based on her beliefs and morals and was jeered.
I'm proud of Carrie Prejean's courage and will pray that she continues to voice her opinion and be a light in the midst of darkness.
For now, I will still wonder...
Miss California appears in anti-gay marriage ad

LOS ANGELES — After failing to stop recent gay marriage approvals in several states, opponents have found an attractive, telegenic poster woman in Miss California, a move reminiscent of beauty queen Anita Bryant's 1970s crusade against gay rights.
Miss California, a Christian college student named Carrie Prejean, joined in a television ad campaign against gay marriage this week, upsetting homosexual rights advocates, including a head of the Miss California pageant.
In the commercial from the National Organization for Marriage, Prejean is shown at the Miss USA competition last month where she answered a question about same-sex marriage by saying she opposed it, drawing both boos and cheers and setting off a raucous debate.
After providing that answer, Prejean was named runner-up to Miss USA. She later said her view on marriage cost her the crown.
