Miss California Carrie Prejean Exonerated

I appreciated Miss. CA's response to her being cleared of all wrong-doing.
This was part of her response afterward:

“Judge #8 began a cultural firestorm in the media; it went national, as he was trying to be self-promoting and hateful, while I have remained silent—since—I am honored to be here today. To finally let my voice be heard and address the hateful attacks, despicable rumors, and the false allegations I have had within the last 3 weeks…being at the center of a media firestorm is not something I had planned, or signed up for. But the days since have taught me to stand up for what you believe in regardless of the consequences, personal attacks, or disagreements.”

What if this situation were reversed? What if she were for same-sex marriage? What if she stated her own opinion for gay marriage, became maligned by the public, and then disgraced because of some shady photos (that didn’t fit the criteria for indecent)? How would the general media and Hollywood Left respond? Gotta admit, the kid stood up for herself without losing her congeniality. She also publically forgave anyone who slandered her. Some of those pics were photo-shopped and she forgave the hate-filled things said against her by people pushing their own agendas. May God give me the same grace when I am culturally attacked.

Girl, we beautiful people need to stick together!
