I didn't watch the Miss USA pageant last night, but I've sure heard a lot about Miss California today! I've been impressed by her confidence in answering the Q&A portion of the contest. Perhaps not the most eloquent answer, but her stance on gay marriage was clear.
When asked in an interview, "How are you feeling today?" Miss CA responded, "Honestly, happy. This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I'm glad I stayed true to myself."
She could have answered the way that the judges wanted her to answer and she likely would've won the competition. It's sad and kind of disheartening to see the mixed response to the situation, especially from the judge (Perez Hilton) who asked the question. Why couldn't and can't he accept the fact that she answered honestly and has a different opinion when it comes to gay marriage?
To Miss California, you did the right thing.
