Miss Beverly Hills is a crazy bigot
I guess American beauty queens are under the impression the general public gives a shit about their inane opinions. When Miss California, Carrie Prejean, became a spokesperson for the religious right and their campaign against homosexual marriage, I thought her own stupidity and lack of insight alone would be enough to invalidate her worthless thoughts. No such luck; if anything, her bigoted views have made her a darling of conservatives (wasn’t Sarah Palin also a beauty queen?).
Hot on her racist trail is Lauren Ashley, who is representing Beverly Hills in the next Miss California pageant. Ashley seems to think Prejean didn’t go far enough in her views, and had this to say about homosexual men:
The Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman. In Leviticus it says, ‘If man lies with mankind as he would lie with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death and their blood shall be upon them.’ The Bible is pretty black and white.
For the most part, Leviticus deals with the methodology of animal sacrifice for the Lord. He’s very specific about how burnt offerings should be sacrificed, and he seems to have a huge obsession with fat (he also thinks if you eat blood pudding, you’ll be cursed forever). It also forbids tattoos and astrology, but I be if we put anyone to the sword for reading their horoscopes or having some ink on their bodies, things would get a pretty damn bloody.
Hey, if this stupid idiot really wants to live according to the word of the Lord, then perhaps she should take a look at 1st Timothy Chapter 2: verse 11-14:
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I don’t permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner
Wow, the Bible is pretty black and white, isn’t it?
