While Miss California Carrie Prejean may not be the official spokesperson for the National Organization for Marriage, that doesn’t mean NOM won’t milk her Miss USA pageant appearance for all it is worth. In a press release from May 1, NOM  included Prejean’s own statement on the new NOM video that features her. Among other things, Prejean (well, more likely Prejean’s people) wrote the following:

“You probably know by now. I believe very strongly that marriage IS the union of a husband and wife. What’s more I believe with millions of other Americans: This vision of marriage is not hateful or discriminatory — it’s good.

“Marriage is good. There IS something special about unions of husband and wives. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers. I do not want to raise my own children in a world where this traditional view of marriage is considered hateful or discriminatory, especially not by my own government.”

Why would anyone ever think this is an accurate depiction of life after the legalization of gay marriage? I will never understand why such blatant falsehoods are still perpetuated.

And here’s an interesting thought: If Miss California had said she supported gay marriage, would she be receiving so much press? Would she have won the crown?
