Perez Hilton: beauty queens need to be more enlightened than presidents about gay marriage

In any case, the mother of Miss New Mexico cannily said in support of Miss California's disapproval of gay marriage:

In the Bible it says marriage is between Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!

Actually, the Bible doesn't say anything about Adam and Eve marrying, but granting that they had a common-law marriage, their story also says that women are formed by men ripping out their ribs and that snakes can talk.

Additionally, the Good Book sanctions slaves, polygamy and concubines, with the famously smartest man in the book having 1,000 total wives+concubines. I'm sure we all can agree that we'll have a better America if more people would uphold those Biblical values, along with stoning people to death for working on the Sabbath.

The queens have at last turned on the queens.

The pageant industry is filled from top to bottom with gay men making straight women look presentable, and now those women, spurred by their families and pastors, have decided to tell their courtiers precisely what they think about their right to human rights.

I hope this leads to civil war -- gay pageant consultants applying the same ideological rigor to the contestants as they are now experiencing. Some free advice: If a contestant doesn't give you the same respect as a straight man, *don't style her*, don't work in her entourage, and don't help her win. Sheesh.

saying that there is choice in this country. Then I got the feeling she decided she needed to follow some more conservative line and came out with that bit that for herself and her family marriage should be only between man and woman.

It was awkward -- not sure it cost her the crown, however. I thought she looked as if she'd had a boob job using two tennis balls. And her smile seemed to come unglued after that question. But, who knows?

I liked Miss Utah's answers, especially about promoting pen pal programs with kids from foreign countries for young people. Can't recall the other reply.

for breast augmentation for the Miss California discussed in the above blog post.

And she'd just gone to DC to announce her work to keep marriage safe from married gays!

Reports said the plastic surgery was done just a couple weeks before the Miss Universe pageant, which may be why her breasts looked they had tennis balls in them....

Good grief -- you mean those beautiful women aren't that way naturally? Heh.

That judge. I am struck by a beauty pageant entrant being held to a higher standard on this than a transcendent "progressive" change agent is, when he's vying for the top job in the land.
