Miss California goes to Washington

April 30th, 2009 // 194 Comments

The controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean stopped by The Today Show this morning to announce she’ll be joining the National Organization for Marriage and their “Gathering Storm” in Washington to campaign against gay marriage. E! News reports:

“I think this is a huge issue right now. People are very passionate of this issue. I think regardless of our opinions, we just need to respect each other when we disagree. It’s all about respect.”
If so, somebody forgot to tell the organizers of the Miss California pageant, whose codirector Keith Lewis today released the following statement on Prejean’s foray into political activism:
“In the entire history of Miss USA, no reigning titleholder has so readily committed her face and voice to a more divisive or polarizing issue. We are deeply saddened Carrie Prejean has forgotten her platform of the Special Olympics, her commitment to all Californians, and solidified her legacy as one that goes beyond the right to voice her beliefs–revealing instead a much more opportunistic agenda.”

Of course, the most hilarious aspect of this story is it comes off the heels of Shanna Moakler’s revelation to Access Hollywood that The Miss California Organization paid for Carrie to get breast implants:

The organization paid for Carrie’s breast enhancement prior to her competing in the Miss USA pageant, which was held in Las Vegas, almost two weeks ago.
“It was something that we all spoke about together,” Shanna said referring to herself, Carrie and Keith Lewis, Shanna’s co-executive director. “It was an option and she wanted it. And we supported that decision.”

So, let me get this straight, Jesus is cool with fake tits, morally bankrupt beauty pageants and constant media whoring, but not gay marriage? Huh. I never really pictured JC as a homophobic douchebag from Orange County, but that seems to be the message these days. Keep spreading the Good News, Carrie!

    Yes, because we know such a respected institution such as marriage should be kept between just heterosexuals. We all know that Heidi and Spencer just epitomize that holiness of matrimony….and the last thing we would want are those damn homosexuals to ruin the sanctity of marriage!
    GIMME AN EFFING BREAK!!!
    Has Prejean (aka Stupid Bitch) looked at the divorce rate in this country? Whatever, she’ll be a stupid-ass trophy wife before we know it.

    I’m from Romania and I find it so funny that in the “land of freedom”, this blonde chick is bashed for opposing gay marriage. How’s that right? Seems like gay marriage is “the” thing nowadays. She should be able to believe in whatever the hell she wants and be able to express it.

    Suddenly, it seems that you have to be “politically correct” to be able to win beauty pageants. I somehow find this contradictory.

    Wow those are some Christians with a lot of time on their hands.

    Hmmm…I wasn’t aware that having fake breasts meant that you couldn’t be a Christian. Also, I wasn’t aware that competing in a competition where the majority of the money you obtain goes to charities and college scholarships was “unchristianlike.” Some of you take this shit a little too far. You can’t run around trying to find Christians doing something that seems unchristianlike. “Oh look at her, she’s a Christian and had an affair! Oh dear, look at that little Jesus freak smoking a cigarette.” Cool out people. We all do dumb shit, religious or not.

    Now with that being said, I don’t understand the whole gay marriage thing. I’m not gay, so I don’t really give a shit what they call themselves. It doesn’t affect me, although I don’t agree with men fucking other men in the ass. I don’t agree with a lot of shizz but I’m not going to parade around pushing my beliefs on anyone like Cartman on Southpark.

  9. Carrie me away

    You work that fifteen minutes, Carrie. It will be over soon and maybe you can make a Christian porno when you can’t make a living off pageants. And she might be writing a BOOK? About what?? How do you stretch out “I lost a beauty pageant and I hate fags” to 300 pages??

  10. Bruce

    I hope the Superficial quits posting pictures of women with breast implants. It would be hypocritical to do so …

  11. jumpin_j

    You sure she’s not the poster child for the Special Olympics.

  12. lol I love Shana Moakler every other week shes having a beef with other hot chic…

  13. If Jesus didn’t want the ass to be pummeled by a cock, THEN WHY DO WE HAVE ASSHOLES?

  14. Jose Frayed

    I hardly think JC is “scared” of homos. He just doesn’t approve. Fag!

  15. Deacon Jones

    Wow. YAY. Whoopee.

    Just what America needs right now, another opinionated whore giving moral advice.

    I guarantee this bitch cries while she gives head.

  16. Yoshi99

    Assuming her career path follows past “beauty queens,” she’ll be committed to this cause right up until the first offer for cash to pose nude rolls in.

  17. Daddy-O

    Sorry, but you have to be a special brand of idiot to equate believing marriage to be the union of a male and a female with being homophobic.

    You either have the reasoning powers of a 5 year old, or you are completely brainwashed into regurgitating the same knee-jerk accusations I hear day after day.

    Grow up, and think for yourself.

  18. Amy

    Maybe we have assholes so that we can shit. Wild guess, I know. Or I guess it would be for Lemmiwinks.
    “A great adventure is waiting for you ahead. Hurry onward Lemmiwinks, for you will soon be dead. The journey before you may be long and filled with woe. But you must escape the gay man’s ass, or your tale can’t be told. ”

  19. Katie

    I’m just going to put this out there that…

    i love the superficial writer.

  20. Daddy-O

    “I don’t understand the whole gay marriage thing. I’m not gay, so I don’t really give a shit what they call themselves. It doesn’t affect me…”

    Amy,

    It’s not about you. It’s about society as a whole, and the social foundations that form a society. You sound more open-minded than many of the lemmings here, so I would encourage you to read up on the arguments on BOTH sides.

    A whole lot of straw men have been created, and I am surprised at how many people do not understand the basic premises of the arguments opposing same-sex marriage.

    And how any adult can mock any philosophic position without first bothering to understand it is beyond me…

    …Unless we are living in a world of children. Then it starts to make sense.

  21. Langdon

    Apparently “Your body is a temple” means “Your body is to be chopped up and mutilated so that people will want to fuck you more.”

    Some Christian this bitch is.

  22. Classy

    This is so typical…what’s really up/? Take the makeup off, the extensions /eye lashes out, stop starving yourself, and let’s see her for who she really is. I thought God didn’t like judgement….something tells me the wench has some skeletons in the closet, and it won’t be long before someone brings them out…to be continued!

  23. stupidisasstupiddoes

    “People are very passionate of this issue”
    and they say beauty queens are stupid….

  24. Langdon

    There were a lot of societal arguments against interracial marriage, too. They were all bullshit. The fact is, there is only one argument against same sex marriage. “I am a bigoted piece of shit.”

  25. Jules

    @ Amy

    No, having fake breasts doesn’t mean you can’t be a christian. The point is, its hypocritical to parade around that youre some mighty christian and do all this “sinning.” It’s called vanity. Where’s the whole, “love what god created” or whatever you believe in. Its hypocritical and annoying. Because of the stupid christian hypocrites that are only “christian” on sundays, I don’t know what to believe in anymore. My faith is gone. I live with 3 hardcore christians and let me tell you, they are only christian when they go to church on sundays. Other than that, they have guys over and party all the time. They judge people like crazy. Who are they to judge? They are also racist. Whats the point in believing in something or holding religion so high when you “sin” so much? Does one think they can just go to church and pray and its all better? that all the “sinning” is forgotten? Cause jesus died so you are able to sin? I dont understand that. You have the rules. You have the book. Follow it. Don’t say you can mess up or smoke a cigarette or whatever. You know what to do, and just f*@!#$@#$ do it! Its soooooooooo annoying.
    And EVERYONE has the right to happiness and should have the right to love whomever they want to. I’m sure Jesus wouldnt mind if he was real. Although, with your reasoning, they can just go to church on sundays and everything will be all better.

    Anyway, Prejean is all about the fame. And she is not smart. She never answered any of the questions. maybe she didn’t understand them. Whoever coached her just used a lot of ‘its all about respect’ sayings.

  26. Joe Melnick

    President Obama has the same opinion on gay marriage as Miss California, so if you attack her use the same words to attack him.

  27. mikeock

    I don’t think it’s homophobic to be against gay marriage. Let me ask you this: would it be OK for 1st cousins to marry? Why not? They used to. What about minor girls? Is that OK or not? 14-year old brides were common 100 years ago.

    All I’m saying is that Miss California and others have a right to oppose gay marriage. Is there a country on Earth that has universal acceptance of gay marriage? No? Hmmm. Hey,what about Obama? What was his stand again? Oh yeah – a man and a woman can marry, 2 dudes can’t. Is he a homophobe? What about Elton John? Isn’t he gay? What’s his opinion on gay marriage? Not for it? Hey, how about that.

    Look, I couldn’t care less if 2 dudes get married in a civil ceremony, but if a church says no gay marriage, that’s their right. Stop being such a drama queen, gay marriage proponents.

  28. All religions are man made and nothing happens when you die. Just wanted to make sure everybody was aware of this fact.

  29. Have the Christian right seen what a bull dyke looks like or an effeminate male? are they suppose to take up with the opposite sex? so they can be saved?

  30. CanajunQueen

    She clearly lacks articulate speech and thought. Repeating the same creed over and over again is not intelligent discourse on such a heavy and much debated issue. I feel that her inclusion in the debate will actually disadvantage the anti-gay marriage movement more than any spokesperson for it could have ever done. So for this, I say put her out there, 24 hours a day, until nothing is left but a much parodied, mocked and duly humiliated woman. I hope as she matures, she may one day look back at her 15 minutes and think… “what was I thinking… what a waste of opportunity”, as she sucks on her unfiltered cigarettes, resting her ashtray on her mammary shelf, which I am sure will continue to grow, staring for hours at a time at the dusty and dimmed tiara that sits alone displayed in her homemade shrine to herself…

  31. Alyssa

    I think it was irresponsible for the committtee to reveal such private information.
    Looks like a bunch of angry homos got their panties in a knot and want to get back at her.

    Please, who’s going to try and deny the gay agenda now?
    Or any agenda?
    you fight for what is convenmient for you, and you dont care about what happens to anyone else.

    The only exception to this was ghandi….

    I’m an atheist. That’s my choice. I don’t understand why people feel the need to mock religious people. Grow the fuck up. I’m not sure whose moral superiority is more inflated. An asshole is an asshole.

  34. zuzuspetals

    Just what this country needs- another stupid Christian campaigning to make sure that no one else is too happy.
    I hope that Jesus does show up in a golden helicopter to kick some Christian ass- starting with Sarah Palin.

    Quote from “Europe”: “I’m from Romania and I find it so funny that in the “land of freedom”, this blonde chick is bashed for opposing gay marriage. How’s that right? Seems like gay marriage is “the” thing nowadays. She should be able to believe in whatever the hell she wants and be able to express it.”

    Absolutely she should have the right to say whatever she wants. And I have the right to say she’s a dumb cunt. It seems like you believe that people with her anti-gay marriage views should be able to express themselves, but people who think that it should be legal should shut up and not offer criticism. I guess maybe freedom doesn’t go both ways in Romania? Go f*ck yourself, fascist.

    Honestly, if you want gay marriage to stay illegal and you’re not religious, there is no reason for that belief other than disliking gay people. If you’re religious and think that gay marriage is wrong because it makes satan happy, you’re not necessarily homophobic, but you’re stupid in other ways.

    The cons have stupid arguments anyway. like “don’t redefine marriage for the rest of us!” Sure, “god” defined marriage in the bible (though the guy didn’t actually write it), but I don’t believe in any god and thus, what gives you the right to thrust your god’s definition of marriage upon everyone else?

  37. jules

    @popduds: I believe it.

    @amy: think about it, kid. its not rocket science.

  38. lizzy

    #22 — i agree! well said!

    this girl is a fucking moron. i’m sure there are some conservative fat cats somewhere paying her big bucks for her shitty beliefs.

    what an asshole.

  39. Objection sustained

    @36

    Exactly. I have no idea why so many Christians are so pissed off about this. They can define their own marriages, just like the rest of us, any way they please.

  40. Amy

    Jules: I don’t disagree with anything you’ve said. Christians sin. Plain and simple. The point is to try and improve yourselves. So yes, to sin constantly (i.e, screw randos and get drunk nightly) and then go to church on Sunday isn’t Christianly. I agree that the idea is to try and live better. I must say, that society has made my question my beliefs and have effed with my head. It’s hard to know what’s right, what’s wrong, or what Jesus would have done. We just have to live the best we can and be kind to others. Although I’m sure Jesus would have disagreed with gay marriage, I don’t think that he would have condoned being cruel to them. All you can do is tell others about Christianity and them let them live.

    #28. Do you know for certain? Have you experienced death? Truth is, you can’t be certain. The most educated scientists refuse to say with all certainty that there is no God. Because there is no way to disprove what you cannot see or test. No one can be for sure. So just live your life the best you can if nothing happens when you die, fine. Nothing lost.

  41. zognor: lord of reptiles

    If only people could be this ‘passionate’ about the idiots that caused the economic depression we’re in. Hey, what’s that stupid blonde bitch yelling about? Let’s go pay attention to her! She should start a march and get hit by a bus.

  42. waste of time

    first of all, if the matter regards society in general, and not a religious community, then the book of reference is not the bible, but the law.

    second, it’s just a matter of terminology and a compromise on rights.

    if instead of calling it “gay marriage” was called “gay union”, already some fanatics for the exclusivity of “marriage” would be out of the negotiation: they’re happy because marriage is still only for men and women (…)

    then some rights are easy to attach to the gay union, such as inheritance law, or next of kin laws.
    i don’t think anybody would argue about that: the only people affected are the people in love, gay or not gay.

    the issue might raise with adoption and stuff like that. that is an issue that should be discussed, and agreed on somehow, by members of society regardless of their faith, but instead using their brains.

    augh.

  43. Skeps

    the simple fact of the matter is: for the time being gay people are being discriminated against by law. If you’re a church and you don’t want to host gay marriages, fine. But to not allow happy gay couples the rights that come with marriage is not only wrong, but illegal. “All men are created equal” There is no possible way to interpret the law as being homophobic without admitting the people who control it are using it for their religious agendas.

  44. Wally MoFongo

    Having fake funbags and being religious seem to be like apples and oranges but isn’t vanity a sin and therefore against being a good christian. She didn’t get the boob job for medical reasons.

    As for her faith, she is allowed to have a position but once she becomes a spokesperson, she is rightfully making herself open to condemnation.

  45. Michael

    Americans are really dumb. She’s obviously retarded but still accepted by so many, this would never hapen in the UK, she’d be laughed off the TV.

  46. Cash

    Well this confirms it for anyone that was still on the bubble.

    Op = FLAMING homosexual, and probably dating Perez Hilton.

    Why? Because heterosexual men couldn’t give a shit what pretty women say, we just want them to go on looking pretty.

  47. Amy

    Jules: You know rocket scientist don’t make that much money? True story. I honestly don’t need you to tell me to “think” about anything. I’m my own person, and can believe whatever I want. It would actually be way easier if I weren’t a Christian. I wouldn’t get bashed so much. But I can’t help what I believe. Don’t be rude…no need for it. You can not believe all you want…AND THEN BURN IN THE DEPTHS OF H E L L AND GETTING PINE CONES SHOVED UP YOUR ASS!!!!!!!! kidding.

  48. Terry M

    Let me get this right, if you are not for gay marriage then there has to be something wrong with you…. Please

  49. Langdon

    @48

    Yes.

  50. EP

    You do know that California voted against gay marriage twice right? Isn’t California one of the most liberal states in the union? Don’t blame Christians or Right-wing conservatives alone. I remember both Obama and Joe Biden stating the don’t believe in it. I think it’s time you realize that and accept the fact that liberals, democrats, jews, asians, blacks, hispanics, and everyone else I failed to mention is against it too. So you might want to stop knocking the stupid blond girl and work on those who matter.
