Carrie Prejean sues for ‘religious discrimination.’ Christ…

August 31st, 2009 // 178 Comments

Carrie Prejean filed a lawsuit today claiming Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis, but strangely not the Donald, subjected her to “religious discrimination, defamation, public disclosure of private facts, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.” Carrie had teased a lawsuit a month ago only to use the opportunity to push her upcoming book, and Miss California Pageant officials are calling her out for the same tactic, according to TMZ:

TMZ just received the following statement from Miss California USA honcho Keith Lewis, lashing back at the lawsuit Carrie Prejean filed against him this morning for religious discrimination:
“It appears that suits from both sides are now inevitable against the other. I would guess Carrie sees it as a chance to get publicity for her upcoming book because in the interviews I have seen, she talks about the suit and the book in the same breath.
We have no problem with her selling lots of books – considering in the current situation we could stand to profit from every copy she sells.
For us, it has never been about her beliefs and we have always just wanted to move on.
But it seems like Carrie really has nothing new to talk about or anything new in her life so the impression is she just keeps looking for ways to rehash her position as a victim because of her onstage answer.”

How do I explain this to Carrie Prejean without hand puppets? The Miss California Organization invested in you, particularly in the chest region, to be the face and again, chest, of their Company. You were an Employee. But should an Employee decide to publicly latch onto divisive political causes in violation of its contract, whether it be bigoted anti-gay marriage legislation or retarded hippie protests with Move-On.org, the Company has every right to protect its investment. So, basically, you’re still free to say whatever you want, but your employer is still free to fire you. That’s not censorship, that’s CAPITALISM. And in case you inexplicably missed the memo while subbing at FOX News, Jesus wants to dip his balls in it. It’s his favorite.

    Excuse me? A spewing of the Old Testament? Even if that were true, what difference does that make? The Old Testament just gets shredded now?

    What the hell is homophobia? I don’t know anyone who has an irrational fear of homosexuals. If I don’t like something then I am afraid of it? Then I am also a suicide-phobe, out-out-work-phobe, etc.

    I DIDN’T EVEN SAY I WAS A CHRISTIAN YOU UN-BELIEVABLY STUPID FUCK!!! I LOOKED SOMETHING UP ON THE INTERNET BECAUSE YOU ASKED ME TO.

    Did something cause muslims to blow up my house?!? What the hell does that mean? No one blew up my house. What the fuck are you smoking?

    Republicans are making the news (like dems) for acting like liberals. Cheating on your wife is a liberal value. Ask Ted Kennedy. Taking bribes is a liberal value. Ask Bill Jefferson. I didn’t say it was limited to liberals. I said that those are liberal values.

    When did I say that because I am (this) that I am right and all others are wrong? Do you just make this stuff up? This is like arguing with an 8 year old.

    It is amazing that someone can reach your age and not be able to put together a cohesive argument. The failure of the schools and your parents, no doubt.

  2. robert takes a wide stance, just like Larry Craig. Self hating homophobia, now that is a republican value.

    Robert –
    I agree that their punishments are disgusting practices, especially in this day and age. Why they have not evolved out of this is beyond me, as other religions have already done so (for the most part).

    Although I don’t think being serious about about their faith means killing, it’s more about interpretation. As with the greater and lesser Jihad. Perhaps there is someone reading that can get more in-depth about this? I do not know everything and will not pretend to.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with being homosexual myself. But anyone who goes out of their way (homo or hetero) to prove their sexuality, or whatever they’re trying to do, really should cut it out, shoving your business in other people’s faces should not be expected to have no comment on it.

    Arline –
    You made a good point about people, not entire groups, doing these things. Other than that you just come off as childish and rude, it doesn’t matter what your viewpoint is, if you can’t do anything but jump to insults and the like people will not want to listen to what you have to say.

  4. robert, in response to your earlier post, I gave her respect for having an opinion and sticking to it. I took back that respect when she pretty much instantly started trying to capitalize on it, doing it for money made it seem cheap.
    Also, I don’t know Robert Redford or Barbra Streisand, but I have met Tim Robbins a few times and he is an intelligent guy. Not sure why you think actors are stupid as a rule, just like everyone else, some are and some aren’t. Also, Redford, Robbins and Streisand did not gain their fame by being controversial, they did it by making movies that millions of people wanted to see. Prejean would have been an also ran if she had not seized the opportunity to cash in her beliefs.

    I do agree with you somewhat about Perez, but not because he is gay, but rather because he capitalizes on controversy that he himself creates.

    Homophobia does not mean being afraid of gay people, it means being afraid that you are gay. Like say someone who constantly brings up how much he is disgusted by gays, then constantly references various sexual acts being performed by gays. Methinks thou dost protest too much.

    It’s amazing how many of this bimbo’s followers just don’t know the actual situation. She was NOT fired for her stance on gay marriage. She WAS fired because she didn’t uphold the terms of her contract. Basically, the Miss California USA organization has the contractual right to tell her what groups she can speak to and which ones she cannot during her reign. She missed the scheduled appointments which was basically her ONLY JOB during this time. Of course she got fired. Anyone who refuses to do their job deserves that.

  6. Galtacticus

    She should sue the media but just as she skipped the Donald except One of them.

  7. Darth

    I don’t know if this lawsuit is good for her book sales.Religion and being a beauty queen isn’t relevant as well.

    @TheSuperficial writer: That’s still discrimination. You manage pick sides in most arguments wisely, but you’re basically being a proponent of corporate fascism. You’re saying companies should have control of the free speech over their employees. It doesn’t matter what her title was, because it was her title. She wasn’t speaking for a company–one which has no statement of its beliefs anyway–she was fulfilling her duty in being honest. Learn to respect other people’s beliefs.

    Why is capitalizing on fame a bad thing? Suddenly she is in the spotlight and she has the opportunity to make money. Only an idiot would not make the moves. Come one. If someone offered you a chance to be on television and get some money from a statement you made, you’d do it.

    They only people who are afraid they’re gay actually are gay. They try, often for years, to deny it and then they finally give into it.

    There are some brilliant lefties. Being on the left is not about intelligence. It is about values and your view of the world. Robbins might be intelligent. I always thought George Carlin was intelligent. Obama and Clinton are very intelligent. It is their values which are all screwed up.

    As for the graphic references to things fittin in Perez’s orifices, that is merely for shock value since most Americans are so desensitized to the horror that is homosexuality. I don’t constantly bring up gayness. I read this site every day and only comment when Christians are attacked. I can’t, for the life of me, see why Christians are so hated.

    Good example. When being interviewed about Hurricane Katrina, dumbfuclk actor Bradley Whitford asked “Where’s the Christianity?” What that horse’s ass didn’t know is that most of the rebuilding volunteers were Christians (and college students).

    I guess this could go on all day. Why is she a bimbo? Was everyone in the contest a bimbo or just someone who opposes gay marriage like Obama does?

  10. Rhialto

    She should think again about this lawsuit because it can cost her tons of money.Don’t rely too much on the advice of your lawyer since they make a living out of this.

    All this religion bashing is stupid. For every argument you can make that one religion is horrible you can pretty much make the same argument for every other one.

    Muslims-planned 9/11
    Christianity- planned The Crusades, genocide of the Native Americans,
    Catholicism-planned the Spanish inquisition
    Judaism-planned the takeover of Hollywood/the worlds banks

    Muslims-Bin Laden
    Christianity-Charles Manson was the Messiah
    Catholicism-Hitler(yes, he was raised Catholic) and every boy touching priest
    Mormons-Ted Bundy
    Judaism-Gilbert Gottfried

    Muslims-believe they get 72 Virgins if they blow themselves up
    Christianity-God got a married virgin pregnant who never had sex with her husband ever.
    Mormons-Magical Underpants
    Judaism-those funny sideburns, whats the deal with that.
    Hinduism-eight armed elephant god

    My point is it’s pretty arrogant to think you have the one right religion and everybody else is subject to ridicule…except for for my new religion I’m starting up. We’re called the branch Alexian, we worship the all mighty Chimpanzee riding on a Segway. All Hail the Mighty Chimpy

  12. Robert

    Alex –

    Believe/don’t believe whatever you want. My father-in-law used to say that when all the smoke clears, we’ll know who was right and who was wrong.

    You’re another one who, I guess, is too smart to beileve in anything except masturbation and beer. Good luck with your new religion. I hope you can swim while you’re on fire, because it’s probably in your future.

  13. alex

    Robert-

    I’ll be too busy being drunk and jacking off to swim. Also, we don’t believe in hell. In my wonderful new religion(that’s better than all the rest and I mock everyone who doesn’t believe) we believe that if your an awful sinner you spend eternity drinking O’Doul’s and wearing baseball gloves on both hands so you can’t beat off while sexy ladies dance inches away from you. On the other hand, if you live a righteous life, you are rewarded with not but the finest ice cold beers from around the world and sexy ladies who give hand jobs anytime you want. Robert, we also practice tolerance and acceptance in my new super sweet religion, and The All Mighty Chimpy would like to extend is furry paw to you. Come join us in our weekly Circle Jerk Kegger.

  14. hmm

    I would like to point out that absolutely NONE of the self righteous “hypocrite” so called religious people on this site even tried to argue the facts or even know what Prejean herself is suing for. They just attack Perez hilton who is not even being sued and homosexuals who again have nothing to do with the lawsuit itself. – so please stop pretending to be religious and continue to look at the bikini and half naked posts of Fish.

    To all the idiots complaining about her getting axed for being worthless, prejudiced skank during the pageant – from what I recall, the pageant and the Donald stood behind her when she was first ridiculed for her ignorant ideas. It wasn’t until she kept throwing herself into the bigot-mix and they found nudie pics of her that she was de-throned. To recap, it was NOT because she was an ignorant, homophobic bigot. It was because she posed for some racy photos that violated the pageant’s rules. I’m pretty sure you can look it up on here of all places if you feel the need to rectify your own ignorance, but I doubt that’ll happen any time soon.

    Actually, it wasn’t because of the photos, Trump publically forgave her for that. It was because of one simple reason, she didn’t live up to the terms of her contract. It has nothing to do with “freedom of speech”. It is simple contract law. The government cannot restrict your freedom of speech. But there is no law that says that a corporation cannot fire you if you don’t live up to the terms of your contract with them. And, she didn’t.

  18. Sar

    Being The Donald, he probably had it written in the contract he could point a finger at you and go “YOU’RE FIRED!” if he just felt like it.

  19. Ms.Whiplash

    Hey Robert, the tide is slowly turning and the number of atheists around the world is slowly but steadily increasing. One day, hopefully in my lifetime, religion will be of no importance and the bible will no longer an excuse to justify your bigotry and ass-backwards notions about other people’s morals. Christianity is just one of the religions that are no longer relevant in this day and age. Let it go, man.

  21. Ms.Whiplash

    Save your prayers #169, I don’t want or need them. Better yet, use them to help better the world, because your god doesn’t seem to be answering his phone. Oh, what? That’s right. Your all-powerful and benevolent father can’t or won’t do a damn thing. Must suck for you.

    I love Carrie Prejean. I hate gays. Period. I’m happy that they are all so miserable. I’m happy that she is happily going to the bank with all the money that the gays allowed her to get!!
    I love the fact that she’s out traveling in her new Mercedes Benz and kissing a gorgeous hunk that also makes millions with the NFL.

    Everytime someone bashes her on this site…she gets paid!!! HA HA HA
