My 10 Observations:
1. Why the hell would anyone be proud of this woman?
This is what Prejean said at the Miss USA pageant:
“Well I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. Um, we live in a land that you can choose same sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, in my country and 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 and that’s how I believe it should be between a man and a woman.”
She stumbled all over her words and sounded about as stupid as Lauren Katlin (Miss South Carolina). Jeesh, and Prejean says she wants to be a motivational speaker.
2. If this is being persecuted, where do I get in line?
I’m sure most of the Christians that the Romans fed to the lions proclaimed, “I feel like I won.”
She was not taking a stand for Christ. She didn’t mention anything about Jesus, God, or the Holy Ghost. All she did was wrongly say she lived in a country where we can choose, and then say her upbringing taught her to deny these choices. Maybe, I’m simply confused because I’m someone who is “opposite” married.
3. Falwell’s conspiracy theories proves he’s just as crazy as his father.
Quick, someone call Dan Brown! We have found the plot for the new Robert Langdon novel. The secret cult of Opus Gay attempts to destroy the beautiful, and misunderstood, San Diego Christian College student.
5. There was one good thing. Falwell compares Prejean to Ben Stein.
6. There is nothing more condescending then someone you disagree with saying they will pray for you.
7. Prejean does a good job proving she has the Holy Ghost gift of discernment.
She uses her powers to reveal that there is something going on in Perez’s heart. Let’s see, he’s gay and you’re telling him he is wrong, and not only that, he’s against God. Thanks Prophetess Obvious!
8. Falwell shows Christ’s love with the statement, “The only hate I see is coming from the other side.”
Isn’t this always the case with the oppressed? One of the most touching scenes in Roots was when the good Christian man was whipping Kunta Kinte. Kunta was so hateful in his denial of his new name Toby. I remember a tear coming to my eye when it became obvious the messenger of God’s wrath was praying for that African sinner.
9. Really! She’s going to talk about tolerance?
10. She ends the talk telling the students to, “Stand up for the truth.”
I’m sure while Joan of Arc was burning to death she declared her persecution, “the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
