Carrie Prejean, former Miss California and NOM poster woman is back in the news and to be clear it has nothing to do about hating gay people. Allegedly. Actually, there’s no evidence she hates gays, she just doesn’t want any of them to have the same rights as “opposite marriage” people (the ones formerly known as heterosexuals) because God doesn’t want gay people to tie the knot that binds. And she believes that she was denied her God Given rights and discriminated against for her religious views by the Miss California USA officials who fired her as Miss California for “failure to meet her contractual obligations” earlier this year when she made a habit of attending
hate fests religious services sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) rather than events she was (allegedly) required to attend on behalf of the Miss California USA organization.
“We will make the case that her title was taken from her solely because of her support of traditional marriage,” her attorney, Charles LiMandri, said in a news release.
The complaint will be filed in Superior Court of California against Miss California USA officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, as well as publicist Roger Neal.
It alleges that Prejean suffered because of “libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.” […]
When Prejean, 22, was dethroned in June, [Miss California USA official Keith] Lewis said it was for “contract violations,” including missed public appearances.
He said then it wasn’t one thing Prejean did, but “many, many, many things.”
Lest you forgot who in the heck NOM is and what they represent, here’s the scary commercial they ran a while back about the gathering storm of gay married people who were coming to huff and puff and blow up their sacred institution of opposite/traditional marriage to kingdom come (and make baby Jesus cry, to boot):
If this seems like a stupid publicity stunt to you, well, you’re not the only one. I hope Prejean’s attorneys (are they paid for by NOM too?) get their law licenses handed to them.
Update [2009-8-31 17:51:27 by Steven D]: Prejean’s attorney (and NOM’s General Counsel) in his own words on the “societal suicide” which gay marriage represents:
Can we stop this societal suicide – possibly, but not if we can’t stop same-sex “marriage” in California in November 2008, and not without supernatural help. Without the foundation of Religion and Morality that George Washington and the other founding fathers provided for us, there is simply no real hope for the future of this country.
Finally, since it is only in our maleness and femaleness that we are made in the image and likeness of God, the destruction of the concept of gender is perhaps Satan’s greatest accomplishment. Moreover, since the sacramental marriage of a husband and wife is used to image the relationship of Christ and His Church, even the idea of same-sex “marriage” is a sacrilege. Therefore, separate and apart from the seemingly accurate prognastications of Professor Unwin, I just don’t see how a God of Justice can tolerate such a diabolical mockery of His divinely ordained institution of marriage for very long. Indeed, the same man to whom our Lord entrusted the Keys to the Kingdom warned us that: “…in the last days there shall come deceitful scoffers, walking after their own lusts… ” (2 Peter 3:3).
