AntiGay Miss California Could Lose Title Over Scandal

Prejudiced antiGay Christian beauty queen, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, might be forced to give up her title to a runner-up in a building scandal in which more racy photos have surfaced over the last two days. Prejean lied and claimed that she only posed for one racy photo, then new ones continued to surface to question her statements and honesty. Only days ago, Prejean was praised by the political right for her prejudiced views on Gay marriage.carrie prejean.jpg

After her very judgemental views regarding Gay Americans, Carrie Prejean has now been caught in a serious scandal that makes her appear as just another Christian hypocrite who is real judgemental of others, while she has her own skeletons falling out of her own closet.

The young model was only 17 at the time, which also begs the question why her mother even allowed a child that young to pose for such photos in the first place, as well as other legal issues. It was outrageous lack of bad judgment on the part of Prejean, her mother and the photographer.

The Christian right, many Republicans and those in the antiGay rights community have embraced Prejean's antiGay sentiments. Even over at at our sister website, Wizbang, there was glowing praise of Prejean only days ago by at least one writer. But since this scandal has developed, so far over at Wizbang nothing has has been printed in her defense. When one of the heroes of the far right is caught in some scandal, then silence and denial among the right seems to be pretty common place.

After this scandal. it will be pretty difficult for Prejean to be making the tour of Christian right programs or churches and denouncing Gay Americans since she is now damaged goods much like some like Jimmy Swaggart have been badly damaged by a scandal of their own making.

Another fraudulent icon of the far right has fallen here. Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was always a phony hypocrite, and now the truth is known. The skeletons are now out of the closet here. Hey Miss California, is that HUSTLER Magazine calling you on the other line?

Maynard:

I champion her right to say what she wants to say, if I disagree with it or not. I champion your right as well.

Regarding her answer to the question at the pageant, I would prefer that people answer a question honstly, knowing that they will receive flak, rather than lie in order to advance themselves in the contest.

That way, we can know who to hate, rather than having to hate everyone.

Paul Hooson:

Hello Maynard, I certainly agree that everyone has freedom to think or speak as they wish. However, Prejean should have realized that there are strong feelings over the Gay marriage issue in California. And Gay activist Perez Hilton was hardly a good choice for Prejean to choose to ask her a question. Then again poising for those photos wasn't good choice. And claiming that she pose for just one photo when more are surfacing was another bad choice. And choosing to offend many in the Gay community wasn't good choice.

It sounds like Prejean makes a lot of bad choices to me. Maybe she's just not Miss California material?

Bunker:

Photos of the anti-gay Christian are here (nipples are covered):

Lee Ward:

Exposing the religious right's hatred certainly brings out the trolls, doesn't it.

Bunker:

So you agree that Obama is a "religious right hater" Lee?

If you are going to get worked up about a beauty queen's point-of-view, but give the President of the United States a pass for having the same view, what does that make you?

Mac Lorry:
The Christian right, many Republicans and those in the antiGay rights community have embraced Prejean's antiGay sentiments.

Which as of last November was over 50% of the electorate in the very liberal state of California. Hope the left makes the mistake of offending everyone who defends Prejean's right to free speech. Even over on TheDirty web site the straw poll was running 51% to 49% in favor of Prejean.

I saw the so-called "topless" photos; one from the left back, one from the right back, but nothing from even the side and her arm covers most of what you can see of her breast. If those are the standard for semi-nude then woman's clothing retailers will have to recall their catalogs and many roadside billboards will have to come down. I see why Lee calls them "racy" because they don't show anything that couldn't be seen during the pageant, only suggest that she might be topless. Of course racy is not the term used in Prejean's contract, so unless Trump wants to lower the standard to no "racy" photos and disqualify many more of the girls, including the current winner, then Prejean will keep her title.

People are really starting to see what a hateful moralphobic group gays are.

Paul Hooson:

Hello Bunker, I chose not publish those photos myself on this website because of the serious legal issues associated with the publication of any photos of that nature of anyone under 18 years of age. I respect the law.

I suppose in censored form those photos might be legal, but I didn't want to raise any legal problems for this website. I would also strongly caution any readers not to attempt to search for or to download any uncensored photos of Prejean as that alone might constitute a serious crime since she was under 18 at the time. Hopefully Internet service providers will quickly act to pull the plug on any website that is posting illegal photos of Prejean, because there should be zero tolerance for any material that exploits those under the legal age of consent.

I can't understand how her parents gave Prejean or the photographer the rights to take such photos. But that's a whole other legal issue there. And another scandal. Since it was only four years ago, there may still be some legal issues that may arise due to this poor choice.

Eric:

Unlike the open minded views of the left that think she is bitch cunt Prejean who should be killed

Bunker:

Paul, it was a picture of Obama topless with his nipples covered up not Miss Cali.

I am pro gay marriage myself (Libertarian), but find myself disgusted by the Left that will attack an easy target (beauty contestant) and not their OWN guy in charge.

It is cowardice pure and simple. Dont try to destroy someone for having an opinion different than yours while you support a leader who can make CHANGE happen and just happens to have the same opinion of the person you are trying to destroy.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Mac Lorry:

Not to worry. The photos of Prejean that have been posted so far could be shown on network TV with no censuring. Calling them "topless" is just spin and wishful thinking by the moralphobic group trying to damager her.

Paul Hooson:

You know Bunker, I just can't figure out why these goofy stories on Prejean or Sarah Palin attract some like flies to, well you know. But when I write serious pieces on foreign policy, few comment. Go figure, huh?

Lee Ward:

"I can't understand how her parents gave Prejean or the photographer the rights to take such photos."

Because many among the religious right worship the dollar as much or more than they worship God, and having their perky 17 year-old daughter pull down big bucks as a Victoria's Secret model trumped their morality.

You're surprised that they were hypocrites?

Paul Hooson:

Mac, I'm not really sure how many photos really exist of Prejean or the level of nudity involved. However, Prejean claimed only one photo existed, then more surfaced. Whether these photos are merely racy, or whether some violate some law meant to protect juveniles from sexual exploitation are issues that yet remain to be seen. But likely the photographer shot a whole roll of photos, while Prejean has misrepresented her involvement as only involving a single photo.

Lee Ward:

And, according to some the photos were done after Prejeans' breast enhancement. The breast enhancement that was paid for by the Miss California pageant folks

link: http://www.makemeheal.com/news/carrie-prejea-plastic-surgery/742

SO --- our gay-hating Republican hypocrite appears to have participated in the photo shoot after her association with the Miss California folks was formalized.

She knew the photo shoot was wrong.

Mac Lorry:
However, Prejean claimed only one photo existed, then more surfaced.

What I read is that Prejean claimed she only did one photo shoot, not just one photo. No professional photographer would take only one photo of an aspiring model.

Whether these photos are merely racy, or whether some violate some law meant to protect juveniles from sexual exploitation are issues that yet remain to be seen.

Well if you're hinting at child porn then no professional photographer not wanting to go to jail would take such a photo. While the U.S. statute includes the word "simulated" it does not include the word "suggestive" for good reason. The photos of Prejean don't show any verboten parts of her antinomy and are only suggestive. No more suggestive than this cover of Esquire showing Carman Electra in place of the Coppertone girl and John Kerry in the upper right.

The left is embarrassing itself with over 50% of the electorate by going after Prejean and trying so hard to make something from nothing. Do the Republican party a big favor and stay at it.

Mac Lorry:

I see you linked to a site that shows the photo from "TheDirty", but in doing so you have blown Paul's strategy to pretend it was somehow child porn. You guys should coordinate better.

The problem for the moralphobic hate cowed is that no photo they have posted so far qualifies as semi-nude. To be semi-nude some verboten part of the body must be shown. The side of the female breast is not verboten and a suggestive pose doesn't change that. Come back when you got something real.

Lee Ward:

Mac Lorry defending these photographs as not objectionable.... classic.

It's amazing how quickly racism has overcome the right's moral code. Put a black man in the white house and the religious right loses their bearings - we saw it happen to McCain in the campaign - the poor guy was floundering around like a mental patient.

They hate dat black man so much they trow away their moral compass and pick up a baseball bat instead.

No, there's nothing wrong with a 17 year old posing that way.. not a thing.

Mac Lorry:
Mac Lorry defending these photographs as not objectionable.... classic.

There's a big difference between objectionable and semi-nude, but it's obvious you know that.

Now you drag Obama into this, who happens to agree with Prejean. I would say you were grabbing at straws, but you ran out of those some time ago.

ke_future:

and yet again, lee uses the race card. on a thread that has had nothing to do with either obama or racism no less. bravo.

Lee Ward:

The hatred racists have for Obama is spilling out everywhere, ke.

It's causing conservatives to label these racy photos of a 17 year old as perfectly acceptable, for example.

A black man got in the White House and the poor old moral majority (now a distinct minority) has their moral compasses spinning madly.

It never would have happened if that damn black terrorist hadn't gotten into the White House. Just ask Rush Limbaugh.

Mac Lorry:
It's causing conservatives to label these racy photos of a 17 year old as perfectly acceptable

The premise of this article is that Prejean might lose her title over these photos. The only terms used in her contract are "nude" and "semi-nude" photos, not racy, objectionable, or any other such term you might think up. Semi-nude doesn't mean showing skin or then everyone in shorts in public could be arrested. It means showing at least one of the verboten areas of the body. The photos posted so far don't meet that test, and thus, cannot be used to take her title. Well, at least not without Trump opening himself up to a lawsuit.

I expect Trump is waiting until all the photos have been posted to see if any do meet the nude or semi-nude test. If so, then that changes things and she should lose her title.

I'm not defending the photos as being ok or something for young women to do. I'm only disputing the premise of this story and pointing out the hatred of the moralphobic crowed trying to destroy this young women for expressing an opinion that her President also holds.

Mac, I think you hit the nail on the head.

Since when has Hollywood, or the libertine political Left for that matter, ever objected to sexuality, nudity, or any kind of scandal? Paris Hilton anyone? These days, making a "sex tape" seems to be a right of passage for anyone who wants to enter movies or TV, even as a lowly celebutant.

Yet now it is the liberals who are rushing to find every photo of this young woman they can find, and paint her as some kind of a whore because she did glamor modeling. Excuse me, but is there anyone who wants to be in the glamor industry who hasn't done glamor shots. Again, Miley Cyrus anyone?

Are liberals, who claim to oppose discrimination of any kind, trying to say "Christians need not apply" to the modeling industry? What does that say about the glamor/modeling/showbusiness industry, anyway?

This case is a perfect example of how truly intolerant liberals are of anyone who aspires to be a public figure in the world they control (showbiz) yet who doesn't willfully drink the sexual liberation Kool-Aid.

It was Perez Hilton who brought up the subject. Ms. Prejean did not ever foist her beliefs on anyone during the pageant, or "demand to be heard." She was deliberately asked a controversial question by a kook activist out on a witch hunt.

Before the next Miss USA pageant, I would hope that Donald Trump makes sure that there are no more kook activists out to use his pageant to promote their political or social agenda.

Lee Ward:

"Yet now it is the liberals who are rushing to find every photo of this young woman they can find, and paint her as some kind of a whore because she did glamor modeling."

Not a whore - just a hypcorite.

Just another flaming, right wing conservative jackass hypocrite - who dares to moralize to others while demonstrating that she herself will sell her body.

Just another flaming Republican hypocrite.

You don't get it - because you just don't get it.... Nether does she. America does - America laughs again at the Republican hypocrisy.

Just remember, Mac and Michael - we're not laughing with you - we're laughing at you.

Mac Lorry:
Just remember, Mac and Michael - we're not laughing with you - we're laughing at you.

Who's we, Lee? The majority of voters in California agree with Prejean as does President Obama. Regardless of what happens to Prejean the Republicans are the ones laughing at the left wingers who are falling on their sword AGAIN over this issue. You know all those Mexican immigrants the left likes so much; there CHRISTIANS. Like I have been saying, it's not that Republicans will win back power, it's that Democrats will lose it.

Lee Ward:

You also don't get that this story is way larger than California. It was a Miss USA contest, and the story and Prejean's hypocrisy has made national news.... international news, in fact.

"Clueless" is too nice a word, but I'll leave it at that for now.

Mac Lorry:
You also don't get that this story is way larger than California.

In California more then 50% of the electorate agrees with Prejean, and in most other states the percentage is even higher.

It was a Miss USA contest, and the story and Prejean's hypocrisy has made national news.... international news, in fact.

But of course, the international audience likes Obama and know that he agrees with Prejean on this issue. And if here there are no nude or semi-nude photos of Prejean then there's no hypocrisy either. Just the left winglets making fools out of themselves.

"Clueless" is too nice a word, but I'll leave it at that for now.

Go ahead and cut lose, Lee. I wouldn't want you to blow a gasket holding all that hate in. It's not like it's harmful to your target.

BTW, what's the record for the most number of commenets to a story on WizbangBlue?

Doubting Thomas:

It's not 'hate', Mac. Lee wouldn't do something so crass as 'hate'.

Just ask - Lee will tell you.

Punisher:

I say clueless, too, but not for Prejean. I mean for those who brand her a hypocrite. I don't see her saying anything remotely making herself better than everyone else morally. She just happens to as a Christian disagree with gay marriage. Nor has she condemn anyone for modeling in any suggestive manner (and the pictures on her show far less than what is shwon by her and all the other ladies individually at the MISS USA pageant). Heck, I don't see her actually condemning any gays either.

How is that her mistakes in the past or sins of the past make her a hypocrite now? How do folks know if her outlook then is same as now, or do folks don't consider possibility she grew up? What does that have to do with her stance on one issue now? Zero. It is an asinine ad hom to use against her.

Guess what? Christians do not hold to themselves as the moral standard; that is reserved for our God, Christ. We hold to ourselves as sinners, too, both before and after we become Christians. We are sinners, but forgiven sinners.

The ignorant of folks in saying that proves she is a sinner to bash her as somehow a hypocrite for saying she is a Christian can be shown by the fact that to be a Christian presumes one believes one is a sinner in the first place who needs the forgiveness that Christ provided by dying on the cross for our sins. Carrie herself admits she is a sinner who serves God.

Guess what? If having a blemished past and present disqualified one from service to God, then Isaiah would never have been prophet given he as "a man of uncleaned lips." God would have had to disqualify David from further serving God since David fell into adultery, then murder, before repenting. Peter would have been removed from apostleship for chopping off a man's ear and then denying Christ three times. Rahab before she was accepted into family of God was a prostitute. Moses before he led the Jews out of Egypt himself took the law into his own hand and murdered.

Basically, everyone, except Christ, would have been disqualified in the Bible, according to liberal standards on how Christians should act.

It is nonsense. Being hypocrite means doing the same thing one condemns. I don't see Prejean ever once doing that.

I find it funny the faux outrage liberals have calling her bimbo and all that, when they revel in far more eye-catching pictures than this and encourage many to have pictures of that nature many times over than just one photo shoot. The real hypocrites are those who condemned Prejean here.

They mock her saying she should be a prude to be a good Christian showing how little they know about being a Christian. Being a Christian is not about being sinless or being a prude. It is about faith in Christ, knowing God loves us despite ourselves, not because of ourselves. The requirement to be a Christian is not being without sin- or otherwise there would be no need for Christ. Being a Christian does mean one do strive to grow in the faith and not sin, but the reality of sin remains to the rest of one's life, since one does not become perfect the moment one believes nor til the moment one tastes the full measure of heaven after death.

epador:

Wow, I didn't realize that being anti-gay marriage was the same as being homophobic, gay-hating, racist Republican thug. Thanks for the education.

Chad:

I don't get it, she got asked a question, and she answered it honestly, how is that bad? Being a hypocrite would have been to lie about it. Over 50% of the nation (according to the polls) also agrees with her. So why is she demonized and villified for it? Oh, yeah, that's right, she actually said it out loud. Well, maybe if you don't want an honest answer, you shouldn't ask the question. Civil unions already grant the same rights to homosexuals that heterosexual couples have, so why the push for the use of the word marriage? As to the pictures, I haven't seen them, but to qualify, the standards I looked up said that to qualify as nude or semi-nude you had to either show the nipple, the WHOLE breast with nipple covered, the pubic region, or the entire buttocks. Was that what the pictures showed?

John:

True hypocrisy...the Democrat Party, the party of Tolerance...

Paul Hooson:

Today's latest outrageous Miss California circus news is that an adult film company, Vivid, is now offering Prejean $1 million dollars to an adult film. Since she has some experience taking off her clothes in front of a camera, you wonder what she'll think here.

Just when you think that trash queens like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, Sarah Palin, or other screwy personalities got boring, a wacky new trash personality steps forth in the guise of Miss California to fill the news with new trashy stories. Ain't life grand.

Lee Ward:

As the old joke goes... we've already agreed she'll sell her body for money, now all we have to do is agree on the price.

Tim:

Boy, Lee's logic train really went off the track today, and that's saying something. Let's see if I can boil it down to its essence:

"Those racist redneck Republicans hate having a black man in the White House so much that they instinctively jump to the defense of someone who agrees with him."

That about right? I know, I know. It doesn't make sense to me, either. But this /is Lee we're talking about here.
