One of the best posts summarizing the Carrie Prejean controversy I’ve seen yet, written by Gay Patriot Blog:
To see just how far discourse on controversial social issues has declined in our culture, all you need do is watch a few liberals take on Carrie Prejean, the Miss California who likely lost the Miss USA pageant last month because she said she believed “marriage should be between a man and a woman.”
She did not attack those who believe otherwise. She did not insult them. She did not call them names. She merely offered her opinion.
Yet, for offering a view of marriage nearly identical to that of the Democratic President of the United States, she has been repeatedly ridiculed on the left. Do those who mocked her know how nasty they sound? Do they have any sense how people outside the liberal enclaves where they reside will react to such bile?
Do they realize that most people who heard Miss Prejean speak, even the great majority of those who disagree with her, would appreciate the civility with which she expressed her opinion?
Here, we have feminist Gloria Feldt engaging in the most juvenile of insults to mock and belittle this politically incorrect beauty queen. Just imagine how the media would react if a social conservative had said an advocate of abortion rights needed a “heart transplant”:
There’s a great deal more; including the despicable, despicable video of Keith Olbermann and Village Voice columnist Micheal Musto attempting to shred Ms. Prejean’s credibility and failing utterly.
