She's against gay marriage, which to many is a moral judgment. Yet when we look into her life and see things that don't comport with her own religious image of sexual morality (i.e. Wearing skimpy clothing in swim suit and lingerie photo shoots) and call her on that hypocrisy then we are being intolerant of her?!! It's a classic manipulation technique of these two-faced self-righteous bigots.
She goes on to say that, "I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos." Yes, they do but not Christian models who make a big deal out of traditional values, which include dressing modestly and not showing off your "ahem" assets.
I know this because I was raised in such a "traditional values" home and dressing in a suggestive manner was considered being lude, immoral and an offense toward "God"--thus making Miss California (like the rest of us evil, non-Christian types) a sinner. Yet that doesn't stop her from condemning people who's only wish is to cultivate love and commitment to each other in the form of a marriage contract. So it's o.k. for a "traditional values" Christian to not support increasing the number of loving and committed relationships in our society but she is o.k. with dressing like she's a stripper???
Her, "I can judge you but you can't judge me" thought process continues with her saying, "I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be. But these attacks on me and others who speak in defense of traditional marriage are intolerant and offensive. While we may not agree on every issue, we should show respect for others' opinions and not try to silence them through vicious and mean-spirited attacks."
HBW: Oh now you admit you're imperfect after insulting millions of people? Now you're the victim--classic martyr complex. You say that you're against gay marriage because you believe in traditional, Christian values, which say that gays are an abomination to God. Then you turn around and get offended when people look into your personal life and find things that don't match what you say and believe in? It's classic, "Do as I say and not as I do" behavior that has too often defined the Christian religion in America. We don't feel that we have to tolerate what we see as intolerance--why should we? You certainly don't tolerate the gay lifestyle so why should I tolerate that defiance when I firmly believe it stands against basic human dignity and respect?
Yes, of course you have every right to be against gay marriage but you don't then have the right to shut people up who disagree with that view and see it as an antiquated, bigoted view of the world. You don't have a right to tell people that they can't get angry at you in response. You can control your discisions in life but not the consequences. So if you want respect then you need to dish it out too. Respect doesn't come from one side--you can't insult an entire segment of the population and the many who support them and then get offended when there is blowback at you. You judge all of us "sinners" every Sunday in your churches and throughout the week in your circle of friends and then you expect us to just sit on our hands and not speak up for ourselves? Bullshit in a chef's salad my friends.
So if you believe that homosexuality is a sin and allowing gay marriage to be a sin then that means that those of us who want gay marriage aren't perfect in your eyes. However, then when we disagree and stand up for ourselves and say, "Hey, you're not living up to your own standards" then all of a sudden you're the victim and we're expecting you to be perfect!! It's like trying to reason with a four year old sometimes with these people!!!!
It goes both ways sister. You can't say that someone is living a life that is sinful and then get annoyed when people call you on your own sinning against your own traditional values and label us intolerant because of your double standard!! When a non-Christian girl dresses immodestly then she's a "whore" and a "slut" and a "sinner" but when a Christian girl dresses in a similar way, "Hey, she's not perfect. Give her a break."
Well, then she says her comments shouldn't be offensive to people because she said in her comments, "no offense." "The way that I answered it might have been offensive to people, and I said, 'No offense to anybody.' I did not want to offend anybody." HBW: You know, just because you say "Don't take offense to this" doesn't mean that it makes what you're saying any less offensive. You live in a free country and have a right to speak out like this but you don't have a right to tell people not to get offended by what you say. If that's her standard then why is she getting offended by our calling her out on her willingness to wear skimpy clothing despite that behavior being the opposite of "traditional values?" I guess it would be all o.k. to her if we had just prefaced our criticism with, "no offense but...."
I don't want to beat a dead horse on this issue or should I say an inflated boob implant but then she says she's more interested in being bibilically correct than politically correct. How cute, she knows her Bible less than many non-Christians!! Because if she knew her Bible she'd know that according to, "I TIMOTHY 2:8-10: “I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation."
HBW: Hmm, Miss California? I don't think that skimpy bathing suits, wearing nothing but underwear in a photograph and wearing lingerie to be seen in magazines for millions is "modest apparel." The scriputre continues, "not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing." HBW: Closthing clothing, hmm, how much to those pageant dresses cost and don't you think boob implants are costly adornments?
Don't like that scripture from your Bible? How about this one, "I JOHN 2:16-17: “For all that is in the world -- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life -- is not of the Father but of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” HBW: Skimpy bikinis, lingerie, reveling dresses, boob implants, being photographed in nothing but your skimpy panties--these are all associated with the "lust for flesh and the lust of the eyes." So you're behavior is just as "deviant, perverted and lustful" as you say the gay lifestyle is that you comdemn with such ease.
Or how about the Christian teaching of "God" creating us all in his own image and therefore trying to improve on "God's" creation is insulting "God's" perfect creation, is it not? And many boob implants are done for vain reasons and vanity isn't looked kindly upon in the Bible either. Women in the Bible weren't even allowed to show their faces many times let alone strut around in a small two-piece bathing suit. Yet you didn't hesitate to judge and entire group of people because they (in your opinion) are living a life of sin.
Ask yourself this Miss California, "Would you strut around in a skimpy bikini with your firm, plastic boobs bouncing around if your Savior Jesus Christ or "God" "Himself" were in the audience? If not then how can you say that you are being Biblically correct by being against gays and lesbians all the while you are working in a business that promotes lust and using the body for greedy purposes? By the way, I don't mind skimpy outfits and boob jobs. I'm not a sexual prude by any means. I rather like it all--I was playing devil's advocate in this post.
