Miss California Stands up for her God

I just watched a clip on the Today Show concerning the Miss America pageant...and was just truly blessed by it....Miss California was asked a question by one of the judges concerning her opinion on same sex marriages....She is a Christian, and here is her answer....

"Carrie Prejean told FOXNews.com that she had "no regrets" and was happy with the answer she gave when a Miss USA judge, the gossip blogger Perez Hilton, asked about her stance on same-sex marriage.
"I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she said on the live broadcast. "No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."
Fox news asked her this am, how she felt about the whole thing...Here is her answer, "Honestly, happy. This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I'm glad I stayed true to myself."
I was talking to Macey about this...and she and I both agree that she won way more than a pageant...She didn't compromise her beliefs...and she shared God's love with the entire country.......Way to go Carrie!!! Standing up for our God, no matter the cost!!

I was going to say how ironic that Landon and I had the same discussion this morning before school, but it is not irony at all it is our great and all powerful God that brings up such conversations between parents and children. We are presented with these awesome opportunities to take a stand for Him and we have to embrace them. I say way to go Ms. California. I would be very proud to have her represent our country! Thanks for sharing!!!!! Love ya, Lisa

Although I certainly do not agree with her position, I definitely agree that what she said takes some serious guts, especially in light of all the reports saying that, had she not given that answer, she would almost certainly have won.

I suppose the integrity in itself is an admirable thing.
