Beauty and the Beasts

This from the Family Research Center. Imagine being told to check your faith at the door. If I was told something like that, I would have to suggest that a certain part of my anatomy be kissed.

For Carrie Prejean, the debate over her crown has officially moved from the court of public opinion to the California Superior Court. The former Miss California announced yesterday that she's filed suit against the local pageant officials who fired Prejean just two months after she was named a Miss USA runner-up. At the time, Miss California officials insisted that she was dethroned for failing to meet her contractual obligations (one of which was an invitation for Prejean to attend the screening of a homosexual documentary).

The real reason for her firing, according to Prejean, isn't professional-but personal. Local officials were angry that she wouldn't endorse same-sex "marriage" on the contest's national stage. Later, according to the suit, pageant coordinators insisted that she check her faith at the door during public appearances. At one point, Prejean says that she was even told "to stop mentioning God." As Prejean exercises her constitutional rights, we applaud her for not being intimidated into silence. More people may soon understand that despite her appearance, it's Carrie's conviction that's a real thing of beauty.
