Miss California denounced gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant on Sunday. When asked about the topic during the competition, Carrie Prejean responded,
“We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think 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.”
Co-director of Miss California USA Keith Lewis was saddened by her comment as was co-director Shanna Moakler.
Miss California ended up receiving first runner-up while Miss North Carolina Kristen Dalton took the crown.
In other news, people don’t fast forward to the bikini portion of the competition and actually listen to what beauty pageant contestants have to say. Have I been doing this whole watch beauty pageant in underwear thing wrong this whole time?
