It Takes Courage To Be Honest.

Miss California at the Miss USA 2009 competition, when asked by a judge whether or not she believes every state should follow Vermont's suit as the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage:

"I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage . . . I think that I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there . . ."

I don't understand why she is under such fire for voicing her opinion... I am not gay but I want equal rights for every one but at the same time I don't think people should be afraid to share their thoughts and opinions isn't that's what America is about?...Too me it's like she's being bully for her honesty rather than applauded for answering a loaded question with honesty...again I am for equal rights for every one as well as freedom of speech.... I might not agree with her answer but I can also see that she was not trying to impose her beliefs on anyone she was just simply stating her opinion...It's true she could have worded her answer a bit differently but all in all she shouldn't be judge for her beliefs... After all, isn't judging others beliefs causing all this "for" and "against" controversy in the first place?

The other contestants had such easy questions to respond to:

  1. Should the U.S.A. help Darfur?
  2. Should girls develop eating disorders to look like you?
  3. Are kittens with balls of yarn cute?
  4. Should gay marriage be legal in all 50 States?

Not clear-cut for her when she is trying to answer honestly, please the judges, and win the crown.
