But have you heard about all the other drama? The Miss California organization is trying to dump Prejean and has told the world about her recent plastic surgery plus one NOM board member has advocated overthrowing the government because of same-sex marriage plus there's more! All after the jump...
Shanna Moakler, Co-Executive Director of the Miss California Organization, has confirmed the group behind the pageant paid for Miss California Carrie Prejean's breast implants, weeks before she competed in Miss USA.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood's Billy Bush, Shanna confirmed the news.
"Did you guys pay for it?" Billy asked Shanna directly.
"Yes," Shanna said. "We did."
The organization paid for Carrie's breast enhancement prior to her competing in the Miss USA pageant, which was held in Las Vegas, almost two weeks ago.
Carrie Prejean became a hero to conservative Christians by voicing her opposition to same-sex marriage at the Miss USA pageant, and as the media interview requests have poured in, she is operating as a distinctly Christian celebrity. I've learned that Prejean has hired one of the country's premier Christian PR firms, A. Larry Ross Communications--which represents such evangelical powerhouses as Rick Warren, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association--to be her "agency of record," according to Kristin Cole, the firm's manager of account services.
The NOM has argued that it is not a homophobic organization, but Card's remarks suggest otherwise. Card, who represents the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the board and received an effusive welcome last week from NOM president Maggie Gallagher, supports criminalizing sex between same-sex adults:
Laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books...to be used when necessary to send a clear message that those who flagrantly violate society's regulation of sexual behavior cannot be permitted to remain as acceptable, equal citizens.
Card has also advocated overthrowing the government if same-sex marriage is permitted:
How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.
Biological imperatives trump laws. American government cannot fight against marriage and hope to endure. If the Constitution is defined in such a way as to destroy the privileged position of marriage, it is that insane Constitution, not marriage, that will die.
