I think I just threw up a little

Here is an interview Carrie Prejean did with a Christian radio host:
Dobson: It sounded, Carrie, like your first reaction was to hedge, to say "Well, this is a free country" and then something took over.

Prejean: It really was a switch.

Dobson: And you did one of the most courageous things I've seen anybody your age or anybody else do. What was going on in your mind?

Prejean: I started off by saying I want to win this pageant so bad, I've worked so hard, I wanted to sound politically correct but still stay true to my values. But I just knew at that moment that God was just telling me "Carrie, how bad do you want this? Are you willing to compromise your beliefs for a one year crown of Miss USA." And I just knew right there . . . And I said you know what and the switch went off. And I said, "A marriage should be between a man and a woman and that's how it should be. "

. . . . And I knew there was no way I was going to win Miss USA. No way.

Dobson: So you put it on the line, that's what I mean when I said you're courageous because this was the goal of your life to that point. And yet you gave it up. And yet the Lord is using you all over this country.

Prejean: And we are all faced with that at times. And just by me being here, I want to encourage other people that when you're faced with an issue which you know in your heart what to say, but you're faced with someone asking it, don't ever compromise that just for pleasing them. Your goal should be to please God, not to please man . . . .


Dobson: Why did you give the answer you did with regard to the affirmation of marriage?

Prejean: . . . I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA."

And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions.

You know what Prejean, god just told me that you’re full of shit.

And I didn't know god was such a breast man. Who would have guessed she got those big ol' hooters for the man upstairs?

  1. Can she just go away now? "Satan was tempting her?" WITH WHAT? TEMPTATION IMPLIES THAT THERE IS SOMETHING POSSIBLY ENJOYABLE AT STAKE. You don't get "tempted" with a question, dipshit. What was he tempting you with? The crown? The Miss USA title? Well, if you didn't care about that you wouldn't be in the pageant in the first place, would you? So you were tempted with a question by Satan to see how far you would go to win the pageant? Is that what you're implying?

    So riddle me this: Getting a boob job is not going too far to win a pageant, but "lying" about how you feel regarding gay marriage is? The mind, it boggles.

  2. I know it’s completely retarded.

    I also don’t see how this is “one of the most courageous things” someone her age has ever done. Walking to school through gang filled streets or having to decide to have an abortion or raise a child after being raped is courageous.

    Not spewing the same old bigoted small mindedness you can find in any city.

  3. I agree with both of you. On a scale of "most courageous", I'm pretty sure what she did would not make the top million list of "bravery". All she did was spew that religious right bullshit crap that she heard in church. I am so sick of people using free speech and God to cover up bigotry. I think she would change her tune if the topic was freedom of religion.

    I better stop now, I have so much rage inside about people like her I could go on and on, and well, it's your blog, not mine. thanks for letting me vent!
