My hopes are dashed for being the next Miss California...

well, except for the fact that I am already married...

Apparently if you wish to even be in the Miss USA pageant, you cannot believe in traditional marriage. You must leave your religious beliefs at the door.

According to Kathy Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, "As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman," said Lewis in a statement. "I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family." (emphasis added).

Thank you Miss California Carrie Prejean for standing up for your values!

I read about that too and thought she was very brave to say something so unpopular and provocative, yet TRUE!
