The last e-mail I read before I went to sleep last night and the first one I read this morning were about gay marriage and bigotry. The point of both and most: How dare I defend Miss California when there are gay Americans who cannot get married.
When did Miss California forfeit her right to an opinion, nevermind one about the core institution of our society? Ironically, she expressed her opinion while expressing a healthy pride that she lives in a country where anyone can disagree with her.
I understand that this is an emotional debate. But it still is a debate. We still have those. There is not one acceptable view. Even if you’re in the Miss USA pageant.
