Carrie Prejean – oh, the hypocrisy!

Carrie PrejeanWhen the whole Miss USA pageant controversy surrounding Miss California first surfaced over a month ago, my initial reaction was mostly that of indifference. When I saw the clip of Carrie Prejean’s interview and her answer to what she thought about gay marriage, I just snickered a bit and shook my head, but thought that she was entitled to her opinion. I even thought that if anything, Perez Hilton’s vblog after the contest where he called her a “bitch” was unnecessary and childish.  Do I think that her answer caused her the title? Probably. Do I think that it was right for her to not win based on her answer? Absolutely. However, I do not agree with Hilton’s argument that she should’ve answered  differently to come off sounding more neutral on the issue. I’m always a proponent of “tell the truth and say what you mean”.  Of course, she couldn’t just let things be and for weeks following the pageant, she went on a media blitz and started invoking God for everything and even went on to become a spokesperson for the National Organization of Marriage, and that’s when my irritations really started to grow.

My issues with Carrie Prejean wasn’t for her voicing her opinion on the night of the pageant, but for her lies and hypocrisy that are becoming more and more apparent as all the dirt on her is now being dug up. By now, I’m sure everyone has seen the semi-nude pictures of her. First it was just one, but on the morning news today we learn that there’s another…and probably many more to follow. I’m not even going to touch on the subject of her moral character as a “Christian” to have posed for these pictures–I’ll leave that up to all the righteous Christians out there to do. My one and only point is that she LIED! Posing for semi-nude pictures is a clear violation of her contract as Miss California, as there’s a clause which asks the participants to say whether they have conducted themselves “in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards”, and as an example, it asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude”She can try to back paddle all she wants and argue that it was a lingerie model shoot or that she was only 17 and stupid, but a fact is a fact and she did indeed pose partially nude.  Furthermore, she initially went on the record to say that “there are no other photos of me…this was the only one I took.”  Well, now we all know that she LIED again! 

So I have to ask Carrie Prejean…does the same God you worship think it’s okay for you to lie?  I believe it’s the 9th commandment that states Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor”It’s aggravating whenever I hear Christians call upon God only when it conveniently suits their purpose in passing judgement against others, but the true reality is that they need to stop pointing their fingers at others and instead look deep within themselves first…that’s what God would truly want.  As for Carrie Prejean, her title as Miss California should be stripped (pun intended) for her contract violations.
