Standing up for what you believe in

In this era of rampant mind-fu*king disguised as "political correctness" where time-tested beliefs and traditions are attacked daily in the name of "progressiveness", read the story below of a young woman who stood up for her beliefs. Notice how much attention the BBC gives to the "indignation" of the queer judge and sympathisers. Notice how the BBC thinks the woman needs to "regret" her remarks. As if. Why did the BBC not interview ordinary folk who may have agreed with the young woman's position? We know the answer. It would not suit the political correctness agenda of the BBC.

We, the majority, unfortunately, stand silent while those on the fringe rattle society's cage demanding changes to shape a world where their beliefs and lifestyles are force-fed on the rest of us. We, the majority, stay silent because we fear the backlash from those same special-interest groups and their chief simpaticos, the liberal mainstream media. It isn't 'chic' to go against the grain. It is much easier to stay quiet, to feign acceptance with gritted teeth in order to keep the peace and avoid confrontation, to fit in. Special interest groups know that and use it to their advantage.

We must not be afraid to stand our ground. Standing up for what you believe in will obviously always attract those who disagree with your position. That's normal. The method by which they may try to force you to withdraw, amend or concede ground is to attack you personally, to intimidate, to threaten. But you have to remember, words are just words. They have no meaning except if you put value to them. Sticks and stones and all that.

Here we have a young woman who despite her youth has shown immense maturity, courage and wisdom in choosing not to go with the grain, to not be swayed by an opinion portrayed by the liberal media. Despite fear of condemnation, she has refused to follow the group-think sheeple mentality that the majority of people display, a mentality that says either you follow us in agreement or you will be ostracised. Either you believe in what we want you to believe or you are a bad person. Bravely, on the national stage, she stuck by her principles, going against a group as aggressive and vitriolic as the gay movement in the US, a group that puts Al Sharpton to shame when it comes to contrived indignation. No doubt they'll be picketing outside her home by now.

Hypocrite watch: Isn't it remarkable that gays expect from normal people tolerance and acceptance for an abnormal condition but are intolerant of others that hold other views?

The runner-up at the Miss USA beauty pageant says her outspoken opposition to gay marriage cost her first place in the competition.

During the televised event, Carrie Prejean - Miss California - said she believed that "a marriage should be between a man and a woman".

She had been asked for her views on the subject by one of the judges, celebrity blogger [gay as a picnic basket - Ed.] Perez Hilton.

"It did cost me my crown," said Ms Prejean, after the competition.

The eventual winner of the pageant was Kristen Dalton, Miss North Carolina.

'Alienated'

"We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage," said Ms Prejean, in a section of the show that has become a popular clip on YouTube.

"I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she continued.

"No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

The remarks drew a mixture of booing and applause from the audience.

Speaking after the show, which was broadcast on Sunday evening in the US, Ms Prejean said: "I wouldn't have had it any other way. I said what I feel. I stated an opinion that was true to myself and that's all I can do."

Hilton said he had been "floored" by Ms Prejean's answer, which, he said, "alienated millions of gay and lesbian Americans, their families and their supporters".

He told ABC News: "She lost it because of that question. She was definitely the front-runner before that."

Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, released a statement condemning Ms Prejean's comments.

"As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman."

The issue of same-sex marriage is a flashpoint in American politics.

Four US states now allow gay marriage, but many other states have passed legislation outlawing it.

I think she deserves support. I'll definitely buy the next Playboy magazine featuring her.

I personally don't give a damn what anyone does or does not do in their bedroom.
What does concern me is the way that we are forced to accept the gay lifestyle as more normal or 'INN', than a happily married heterosexual family.

Gay rights yet we don't have proper minority rights such as the right to self determination.

Miss California's got cahones for answering the question honestly, especially considering where she comes from. The end result is that she's more popular (or at least well known) now than she would have been if she had won
