(Newser) – Carrie Prejean says she believes she was divinely chosen as a defender of traditional marriage, Politico reports. “God had a plan for me” when he arranged for her to answer Perez Hilton’s question on gay marriage during the 2009 Miss USA pageant, Prejean told the Value Voters Summit in Washington. “I’m so proud of the answer that I gave. God chose me for that moment.”

“I was a woman who stood up for the truth and people don’t want to admit that,” Prejean continued. “I had the courage and the bravery that a lot of people don’t have. I am not defeated, they have not defeated me. They can say whatever they want about me and my faith. I always wanted to leave a legacy of courage and boldness and to show that to young people.”

I got it...i just don't agree... but at least you found the comment entertaining...i think my comment is what most ppl didn't get. i also think most ppl are so uptight and hellbent on being PC that they ignore reality. but hey, i'm used to being one of the few who prescribes to unconventional thinking. i was never really into herds.
