(Newser) – The Miss California pageant wants back the money it ponied up for Carrie Prejean to get breast implants, countering her lawsuit with one of its own. Prejean alleges she was a victim of, among other things, religious discrimination in being stripped of her crown after taking an anti-gay-marriage stance; the pageant’s complaint tut-tuts, in part, that if Prejean had “heeded the guidance of the Gospel of John, who admonished only those who are without sin to cast stones in judgment, she might have avoided this legal battle.”
