Re: Prejean

Another e-mail:

I just finished reading the reader response to your Prejean column and I think the commenter is missing the point in comparing Prejean/gay marriage to Joe the Plumber/economy. There is little question that Joe the Plumber is not an economic expert, but the reality is that for many of us gay marriage is not a political issue as much as it is a moral issue that happens to have been politicized. I’m quite sure that Miss Prejean is capable of espousing her own moral point of view, and if the proponents of that side of the discussion choose to use her as a spokeswoman, I see nothing wrong with that. To say that any individual is not an “important voice” on a moral issue is missing the point entirely.
