Miss California Declares Herself a Model Christian

Miss California Declares Herself a Model Christian-photo

Look out, world; Carrie Prejean says she's being persecuted!

Miss California Prejean—who caused a ruckus at this year's Miss USA competition by declaring her negative, "biblically correct" thoughts on gay marriage—says she's being targeted by foes who've attempted to sabotage her by leaking a topless photo of her onto the Internet.

"[M]y comments defending traditional marriage have led to intimidation tactics that seek to undermine my reputation and somehow silence me and my beliefs, as if opinion is only a one-way street," Prejean said in a statement on Tuesday, according to Us Magazine.

The picture, which was published on Web site The Dirty on Monday and show Prejean modeling as a teenager, was "released surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith."

And besides, she adds, the photo is perfectly in line with her belief system, as she sees it. "I am a Christian, and I am a model," Prejean offers. "Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos."

Despite the "intolerant" and "offensive" attacks on her character, Prejean asserts that she will continue her crusade in defense of traditional marriage.

"If this whole experience has taught me anything," Prejean says, "it is our precious right to speak freely, and how we as Americans can never allow anyone or any group to intimidate or threaten us to keep silent."

The Man Upstairs might give the thumbs-up on Prejean's topless modeling photos, but the officials for the Miss USA pageant may be another matter.

"I can assure you they were quite inappropriate, and certainly not photos befitting a beauty queen," Alicia Jacobs, who sat on the judging panel for the April 19 competition that launched the whole controversy, asserts to NBC.

Have your say in the comments section: Is Prejean under unfair attack, and should she be dethroned because of her topless photo?

    @soman sunshine-most devoted nuns belong to catholicism which is only a pagan idolatrous religion with a 'christian' facade.

    feminism is a lie created originally to destroy protestant society by catholic jesuits.they concieved a secret organization called freemasonry for this purpose.why did you say americans can learn from sweeden?...instead of saying italians or spainards can learn from swedes?...because you secretly know both most of the protestant countries are in reality women ruled since they have fallen into catholic lie of feminism.Because of embracing feminism mainline protestantism is today on the decline.Even after so many protestant denominations have allowed women pastors and bishops,the catholics are yet to allow women even in the position of deacons-why?...because it was catholic jesuits who through their sub-organization originally concieved the ideology of feminism in order to weaken and destroy protestantism.You and your protestant countries are doomed for failure unless you acknowledge the fact that you have been lied by feminist ideology and purge the "cancer" called feminism from your nations.You fell into this trap because you disobeyed the commandmend of Jesus that you be as harmless as doves,yet be as clever as serpent.(it's in the being clever part you failed)... here is the prophecy for all-catholicism and all it's creations which include feminism,communism and islam along with all other false religions will be destroyed in the soon coming WW3.After the war the true religion-the final protestant church will ecompass all mankind.The 3rd temple will be rebuilt in jerusalem and it shall be called "the house of prayer for people of all nations" exactly as Jesus predicted nearly 2000 years ago.Anilmal and other sacrifices will be offered there in the rememberance of the ultimate sacrifice ofJesus Christ on the cross,just as it symbolized the coming sacrifice of christ in the old testament period..This will remain till coming of christ ( rapture) .In rapture believers will be taken and hypocrites left behind to face great tribulation(such as never happened before or never will in the future) which will last for 7 years.In the half of this 7 year period antichrist will break his agreement with jews and put up the awful horror inthe holy temple.He will require all to have number 666 imprinted on them to buy or sell.Those who get this mark of 666 are damned for eternal hell.So anybody who happens to be in tribulation period,want salvation he/she has to die as martyrs or get the mark of christ(which only 12 tribes of israel 144,000 people wil get).

    Its not surprising that Carrie was stripped of her title. They could not do it openly just based on her comments, which would have been discrimination against her beliefs, so they split hairs to find a way of doing it with the appearance of a justification. Lewis-Trump make out as though this was something ‘unacceptable’ she did they were‘forced’ to do, however, Mr Trump-Lewis, we are intelligent and can read between the lines, and will not be fooled by these kinds of ‘tactics’. You got rid of her because she was not serving your political and associated interests and those of whom are with and behind you….simple… How the runner up can assume this position and feel falsely a winner would be inconcivable, and if she has character, she should turn down the offer to take Carries place in protest, ...in addtion, who cares about the dicriminatory attitudes of Moakler and the like...they are so predicable is nauseating, digging up whatever they can ie: photos that can hardly be described as anything resembling nudity dug up as 'dirt' against her...I bet if we looked into the accusers and critics against her lives, we could dig up a whole lot more....

    You cant be lukewarm. It says that in the bible. If she's going to call herself a christian, well lets just say that the "most devoted followers" are also called nuns. And they dont pose naked/topless for anybody.

    Carl - Most people who are "anti-christian" know there are OTHER bigots out there against gays. (BY THE WAY, I would rather call us anti-"cultural-christians"- who-are-not-actual-followers-of-Christ. I have no problem with ACTUAL Christianity.) Are you trying to divert attention away from Christian intolerance and bigotry with super-psychotic jerks? Really? This is hilarious, because we can't go policing the world. The only bigots we CAN police are those delusional people who, for many ludicrous reasons, believe that gay marriage is harmful. Oh I'm sorry, I speak too harshly. It's not necessarily their fault. They probably believe this because they've been brainwashed to think so. How else could someone claiming to be a follower of Christ act this way? Sounds like someone has been hearing too much Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage...

    first of all she is no model christian. I'm christian and straight and have a wife and i know that gay marriage is not wrong and can not hurt my marriage in any way what so ever. so screw this "moral christian" because a real christian would "love thy neighbor" no matter what. So take that Carrie!

    I heard Miss California got Swine Flu from a recent trip to MExico City where she posed for explicit nude shots of her and a donkey.

    She's apparently on her death bed from that bastardly virus. WHERE'S YOUR GOD NOW?

    Really - where were the parents? What type of "parent" would allow their underage daughter to pose for soft porn? Clearly, we need to save the children from heterosexual Christian extremest pushing their children into soft porn; not gay marriage. Call Maggie!

    To the question of where were her parents: Her parents probably wouldn't care if she acted in the sequel to Nailin' Pailin: Younger (or in relation to this article, Underage) Politically Active Beauty Queens. Why? Because conservative Christians are so busy trying to control everyone else's choices that they fail to notice when their own daughters act "immoral." If she wants to take her clothes off, or parade herself in a bikini on stage to be judged, she should do it. She shouldn't try to turn around and claim to be a morally upstanding Christian. Christians like Prejean are so hypocritical.

    If Miss Prejean loses her crown, no Christian can say that she lost it for her beliefs. That's ridiculous. Other pageant winners have lost their titles in similar situations, and their beliefs had nothing to do with it. It is very hypocritical that someone so adoring of Christ and eager to socially regulate sexuality would exploit her own sexuality in such racy photographs. This violates the Christian idea that her body is a temple. And please, don't align Carrie Prejean or anyone espousing her beliefs with great historical progressives. This is extremely misleading, here's why: a) There were Christians on both sides of any of these movements. I can just as easily argue that there were Christians who argued that slavery was their right, claiming superiority and authority from the Bible. You can easily find this information. See? It's misleading in that you're implying that Christians have always been exclusively on the progressive side of history. b) Also, Carrie Prejean, and those who share her beliefs, are not similar to the Christians who have historically backed progressive movements. As a matter of fact, she fits into the conservative "religious right" that emerged in the 1960s as a BACKLASH to progressive movements. Do not put a pampered, privileged member of the mid to upper classes in the same category as those who fought, struggled and sacrificed for just causes. These words cannot express their valor, which Miss Prejean has not come close to. She has "sacrificed" a crown. Though there isn't reasonable proof she even did that. I added this because someone MIGHT have the audacity to argue it, showing that they truly have no idea what sacrifice in the name of social justice is and has been HISTORICALLY. Leave your misconceptions about history out of this. Carrie Prejean has been about as persecuted as Sean Penn, though I doubt Christians will like that comparison. I'm straight and married, and gay marriage will not hurt my marriage. Congratulations to all who find Carrie Prejean to be an outrage and a nuisance. Congratulations to anyone who holds the teachings of Christ about treating others with love and humanity higher than those who wish to intertwine church and state.

    Christian leaders (Pastor King and others)led the fight for Civil Rights, led the way in the fight against the British slave trade, for abolition in the U.S., for women's suffrage and much more... These leaders were attacked and called names for taking moral stands, and today folks like Miss Prejean are similarly vilifed and called names. The Christian leaders who stood for justice in the past, would stand firmly with Miss Prejean in her defense of traditional marriage, and it is not incidental that each attack on Miss Prejean's views devolves into a personal attack. This echoes the experience of values advocates through the years...

    Sorry, I don't care how honest her answer was or what majority believes what. We are all supossed to be equal in this country, and it was not so long ago that a bigot could honestly answer that Black People should not be able to marry whites, or women should not have the right to vote. Just because the majority at the time would have agreed with them does not take away from the fact that they are un-american statements in their intent. This girl is a bigot, and I hope she enjoys some of the free speech coming back at her, and then I hope she takes her implants and goes home.

    Without question the attacks on Miss Prejean are predicated on her answer during the pageant... which incidentally reflected the views of the majority of Americans, President Obama and the U.S. Congress, and the clear majority of voters in California. She may have made bad modeling choices, but that does not invalidate her answer which was reasoned, fair and correct. These are simply attempts to undermine the message by attacking the messenger - a tact that would be dismissed in any collegiate debate as invalid.

    "as if opinion is only a one-way street" - I suppose it's fine for her beliefs to be a one way street - morally perfect without question - but no one can tell her she may be wrong? What a douche bag. P.S. Christians love to say they're being persecuted. What BS, the biggest religion in the world is persecuted. Poor Christians.

    Carrie Prejean is a fake if not an absolute idiot. So, an underage privileged girl has nude photos taken and they are made public to "mock her Christian faith". LOL -- Mocking her Christian faith? Well, none of my Christian friends go around posing nude (especially while underage). Carrie Prejean is joke. It's amazing -- the GOP put up a horrific mother with an underage teenage daughter that got knocked up outside of marriage. A model Christian? It seems Christianity may be the fake. Is no one in the public authentic? Say you are Christian and somehow that becomes the truth? What about morals -- Prejean IS NOT want I want my daughters to look up to. Simply Trash.
