As you may or may not know, Miss California contestant Carrie Prejean was asked a question by Perez Hilton regarding gay marriage during the recent Miss USA pageant. You can see her response here:
Whether you agree or disagree with her answer is really not the issue. The real issue is do you think she's hot? I think she's really hot but that's just Satan trying to tempt me. Oh, I kid Satan.
The good Miss Prejean claims to be a Christian and that's just fine and dandy. I was raised Catholic so judge not lest ye be judged I think applies here. Instead, I simply question Miss Prejean's sincerity.
Prejean recently released a statement that, in part, reads:
"My comments defending traditional marriage have led to intimidation tactics that seek to undermine my reputation and somehow silence me and my beliefs, as if opinion is only a one-way street. I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos.”
Never mind how she chooses to frame the issue. What would Mary Magdalen do?
Photos surfaced on thedirty.com of a topless Miss Prejean that she or her spokespeople claimed were taken when she was only 17. It was later confirmed that the photos were taken, in fact, when she was 18 and with her full consent so she had to backpedal on that one. I don't claim to be a deeply religious man but I'm pretty sure thou shall pose semi-nude in panties, smiling and looking directly into the camera is not one of the Ten Commandments.
A Miss California Pageant official recently confirmed previous reports that Prejean received free breast implants, organized and paid for by the pageant, weeks before the Miss USA competition – presumably because Christians with big boobs have a better chance at winning pageants, just like it says in the Bible.
Last year Prejean modeled lingerie for the E! network's pre-Oscar "Countdown to the Red Carpet." Carrie was dressed in a bra, underwear and stilettos. I think Miss Prejean is cool on that one because in reading the Ten Commandments and scouring my pocket Bible, I could not find anything on thou shall not wear a bra, underwear and stilettos on E!'s Red Carpet.
Again and for the record, I'm not judging Carrie for all of the above. But if being a Christian means walking around in your underwear, posing semi-nude in photographs and getting free boob jobs, then I guess I'm going to Hell.
But maybe it's not too late and I can be saved. Can someone lend me a pair of stilettos and a thong and be brave enough to film/photograph me?
