Since this whole debacle came to light and hit the Internet, especially the blogosphere, I just plain didn’t have any desire to post about it, LOL.
I mean, what was the controversy? A young contestant, Miss California believes (rightly) marriage should be between a man and woman and said so, and predictably, one of the judges who is not only homosexual but a homosexual activist, used the opportunity to slam and ridicule the young woman publicly. So what’s new? Granted it was extremely ugly, but both were being who they are, and also predictably now, both sides of the homosexual culture war are milking it for all its worth.
I read today that a conservative group is now planning to use this young woman, Carrie Prejean, in a new $1.5 million ad campaign funded by the National Organization for Marriage: (see Miss California to star in TV ad from conservative group)
What good this ad and her appearance will do in ‘winning’ the culture war on homosexuality and/or ‘gay marriage’ is debatable: Though I see it accomplishing nothing.The line has been drawn and identified: you’re either on one side of the issue or the other, already.
Anyway, Paul Proctor, who is always controversial, has a post up today which was interesting. His criticism is pointed toward those (Christians) who have raked Carrie Prejean over the ‘hot coals’ of hell for her even appearing in the Miss USA Pageant.
THE MISS CALIFORNIA CONTROVERSY
By Paul Proctor
Well, Miss California’s flogging line seems to have grown a little over the last few days, but not for the reasons you might think.
The first one to step forward and berate Carrie Prejean for her biblical view of marriage was, as most of us now know, a homosexual judge, followed by other pageant officials who largely benefit from the “pro-gay” crowd and agenda. Then along came a few singers and celebrities who chimed in for their daily kudos from the liberal media.
And now, joining the chorus of critics are some rather angry Christian feminists – and I don’t mean liberals in the church either.
I realize that the term “Christian feminist” is considered an oxymoron in most conservative circles, and that feminists within the church are usually thought of as liberal; but I believe they also exist among conservatives and bible believers as well.
From what I’ve seen, they generally keep it in the closet until opportunity knocks and they’re forced to come out swinging for womanhood in the name of Christ.
They are the militant busybodies, backbiters, gossipers and control freaks among us that may not be as skilled at dressing up as some ladies around the church house, but they are very skilled at dressing down those who are, especially when their self-esteem needs a little boost – all with a feigned purity and “Christian zeal” that serves to cover whatever deep-seated envy, jealousy and resentment they may have toward others, that, for whatever reason, get more attention, recognition and praise than they do – especially from masculine men.
Those who tend to focus primarily on the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes all too often overlook the pride of life – especially their own…
