Traditional Values are Taboo

Today, Miss CA, Carrie Prejean was fired from her position due to accusations that she has failed to fulfill her contract terms.

For those of you who have not heard, she had the gall to actually say that she does not agree with gay marriage. Ever since then, she has been in the cross-hairs of the organization and liberal groups.

In an interview, today, she said that the only event that she was asked to attend, that she denied to go, was at the Sundance Film Festival and the event was a pro-gay marriage event.

In modern America, you better keep traditional, religious, conservative values to yourself. If you are a person that has the spotlight, and express such unacceptable views, you will be viciously attacked. "Popular" people are supposed to be liberal.

David Letterman used Sarah Palin as a source of cheap jokes on his show a couple nights ago. He referred to her as having a "slutty, flight attendant look". He tried to be funny about joking that her daughter was raped while watching a Yankees game.

If you are a conservative and have traditional values and speak out in a public forum, your life will be examined for any aspect where you can be attacked. If you are liberal and do the same thing, you will be praised as a social hero.

If you have standards, but have had periods where you have failed to live up to those standards, you will be branded as a hypocrite and belittled. If you have no standards, such as many liberal Democrats, you cannot be a hypocrite as there is no bar set for you to live up to. The two sides have double standards. The media expresses their double standards in the reporting of any such event.

Carrie Prejean stated that she would rather suffer attack and be fired for her principles rather than abandon them for popularity. She claims that is the main lesson she has learned and she wants others to get out of all of this.

  1. The double standard is unbelievable. What kind of a question was that to ask at a pageant anyway? There was only one answer that would have been acceptable and honesty was beside the point. If she had said something about gay rights and their right to love like anyone else, there would have been no thought given to the millions of people who would have been offended by that.
    I think pageants are stupid, but she has been brave enough to have a spine in the public eye...I can't think of any other celebrity that has done that.
