Please Go Away
For all of you who don't know who this is (and how could you not if you've watched the news in the past week) this is Carrie Prejean, former Miss California whose claim to fame was her answer at the Miss USA pageant. When asked if she felt the rights of marriage should be extended to all people - gay or straight - she answered that she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. Now, while I do not agree with her, I fully support her in her answer. After all, aren't we allowed to have and express differing points of view in this country? However, her latest press tour promoting her book and all the media surrounding it has really begun to irritate me. First, there were stories about her breast implants, then the topless photos, and now a sex tape she allegedly made when she was 17 years old. My question is this - if she is such a good Christian woman as she claims - a supporter of conservative values - why is she posing for topless photos and making sex tapes? I find it very hard to believe that a true conservative would behave the way she has in the past few years. I think what Carrie Prejean is an opportunist. She gave her answer and capitalized on the media frenzy it created. Now, she is using her 15 minutes to make public appearances and sell books. Can you tell that it bothers me? It does.
