  • Yes, I do.
  • Right there with you brother! It's time for the conservatives to be able to speak up without being criticised!
  • I sure do not.
  • Not hardly. She was auditioning to be an ambassador for all America, which has legal same sex marriage in some states. Her comment degraded the already married same sex couples in California too.
  • She has a right to her opinion. She should not have lost the competition just because the judges don't agree with her point of view...
  • I agree with you because she was speaking her mind and giving her honest opinion. If she would have lied just to win the competition that would have compromised her integrity
  • I have no interest in what she thinks about that topic and either should the judges. I don't see how that applies to her ability to be a good Miss California. Miss California is supposed to be a "good will ambassador" ... to all citizens of the state. If she cannot serve without prejudice, she should not be "crowned".
  • I think everyone has a right to their own opinion, so to be honest. I would say that I agree, because to me that kinda relationship is wrong. I mean for the longest I've tried to see from their point of view, but it just isn't right to me. And I'm sorry if I offend anyone by it.
  • I agree with her, even though I have homosexual friends I do not agree with homosexual marriages(in fact I see homosexuality as something against nature).
  • Fraid not, anyone who decides to be a beauty queen is either dim witted or morally bankrupt so I'm not likely to go along with them.
  • No, marriage *should be between two PEOPLE that love each other and want to be committed...period. Although she could have been a little more tactful, I don't think her opinion alone should have cost her the crown. Maybe her lack of tact on the subject is what really cost her.
  • No I am afraid I don't support that at all. I see absolutely no reason at all why gay people should be denied the *right* (as I consider it to be) to marriage.
  • The majority of California voters agree with her. That's democracy.
  • Its her right, and I have no problem with it. I dunno if I agree with it, but she has a right to her opinion and I respect her for it.
  • I don't support it. I think that bigotry and hatred are getting old. I mean, I think she has a right to believe whatever she wants, and to be as ignorant as she wants, and I support her right to free speech, however I do not support her views. And anyway, who cares what a beauty pageant contestant thinks? At the end of the day, she is just.... *drumroll* a beauty pageant contestant!! She is not any sort of authority on the matter.
  • Does gay people getting married really destroy the fabric of the world. Will gay people getting married be so horrible. This is why America is on downslide. Instead of focusing on bigger issues like Economical woes, Educational failures, and things that really effect we argue over race, gender, and sexual orentation like this is the 50s or we are little children. All while the government sneaks their agenda right under our fighting noses.
  • Nope. Marriage should be between two people who love eachother. In what way would a same sex couple getting married affect you? Grow up, it's 2009, not 1809.
  • No, I do not support Miss California's answer. She has the right to her opinion, but I don't agree with her.
  • Nope. That's why we don't put beauty queens in charge of deep thinking.
  • Yes that's what I believe. I didn't watch the show so I don't know what the question was. But if my believing in God caused me to loose anything I would not be sad but I would rejoice in the Lord.
  • I do, marriage is centered around a religious ceremony, if 2 of the same sex want to "marry" call it something else.
  • I support your rights and Miss California's rights to have whatever opinion on gay marriage you choose. Now are you willing to support my right to have my opinion that Gay people should have the same rights under the law an strait person?
  • No, when in history have they actually accused a Beauty Pageant contestant of being even remotely intelligent. I don't dispute that is her, and your right but the country is in too much turmoil for ignorant idiots to be worrying about Gay Marriage, when we should be focusing on the bigger problems.
  • Not me. Marriage is a completely private and personal matter and no one but those involved have any business dictating terms - it should be between two or more consenting adults.
  • I disagree with her answer, though I support her right to think it-- I'm honestly more bothered that she couldn't give a reason for it better than "that's just how I was raised." That's not a reason for anything. Don't you have independent thoughts? If she said "I was raised that way, and blah blah here are my other reasons that I've looked into," I might disagree with her *more*, but I'd at least know she's able to think.
  • Marriage should be between two people who love each other.
  • basically all these people that answer this question are crazy. marriage is definded as a union between a man a woman and god. therefore it is IMPOSSIBLE for gays to marry. if they want to be together thats their perogitive but they cant expect to be married under legal terms of marriage. miss cali was 100% right.
  • Disagree, and i look at her as being even more ignorant when she says "thats just how i was raised". Why doesnt she think? She just takes everything her parents told her runs with it? She thinks SHE is better then everyone, deserving of marriage? What is she doing.. strutting around on a stage acting like a damn fool? Sorry.. those are my questions to her..
  • I agree with you and her. Marriage should ALWAYS be between a man and a woman. thats how God wanted it to be, but look at how crazy our world is now:)
  • Just another way to enforce a selfish opinion. I assume both you and she are heterosexual no? Try a little compassion. Marriage means an agreement of love and support between two consenting adults. Who gives a rat's ass what their sex organs look like?
  • I'm sorry, but i believe that marriage should be between two people that love each other, so their sex doesn't matter. Marriage should happen between a man and a woman, a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Everyone is free to make their own choices, i'm not saying to go out and buy yourself a gun and then shoot somebody just because you felt like it, i'm just saying that gay marriage doesn't hurt anyone. Love can happen between anyone of any race and sex. I'm sorry, but this is what i belive, but i still respect your beliefs because everyone should be free to think the way they want to think as long as they don't hurt anybody.
  • Yes here, me. I absolutley agree on that. Marriage is and should always be between a man and a woman. and it should last for life.
  • I find it sad how anyone can use the word of god to SUPPORT (JUDGE) anyone else. "Ignorance Breeds Fear" and "Hate should Never Be A Family Value" it doesnt take a brain surgeon to know that. Noone seams to recall the words in the bible that says that we judge not lest we be judged. Be careful where you throw stones at~thats all!
  • I think she has bigger balls than most men! It took a lot for her to stand up there and speak from her heart! She is a American she can say anything she wants! (for now)
  • That is marriage as is sanctioned by god. Anything else is sanctioned by the state and anything the state gives can be taken away.
  • No, everone is different, families are different and beliefs, understanding of things and livelyhoods. And love is love, it is a good thing not a bad one. If 2 people want to get married, it is thier life. Marriage is a commitment between 2 people. Even athiests get married. it is not only done for religion... I can go on and on. So I am gonna stop here and just state that I don't agree with such closemindedness.
  • Absolutely, and it's a shame that she lost because of that.
  • Although I admire her for answering honestly when you could tell she knew it wasn't a good idea, I totally disagree. I cannot understand why people cannot accept something that is not hurting them at all. What's wrong with more love in the world?
  • thats the idea!!
  • I do not support her answer, but I will defend her right to say it till the day I die. This is America, where we have freedom of speech, and she was speaking her mind. She should not have lost because of her opinion.
  • I support her answer. She should not have to violate the integrity of her opinion and belief for anyone and for any purpose.
  • There are probably many other hateful bigots around.
  • Why wouldn't we want all people to have the right to a messy divorce :P
  • Well .. ask THAT question and watch the HOMOPHOBES swarm .... She is entitled to her opinion ; BUT ... if she is going to represent ALL of America ; then she has no business being Miss America with her Homophobic views ... I do NOT agree with her answer .... Ya' know ; back in the 30' and 40's ... who would have even THOUGHT of a black man and a white woman MARRYING ? People would say THAT was NOT a MARRIAGE ... And now; they are saying that same sex couples cannot get MARRIED ... WHY ? NO One has yet to give me a senseable answer as to WHY. Are they going to be living in YOUR house ? NO ! How is what they do in their homes affecting YOU ? It isn't ! So why is it any of YOUR Business ? It isn't !! Our Constitution says something about EQUALITY for ALL ; But it doesn't look like we get it in the good ole USA .... Thanks to the narrow minded , bigoted, HOMOPHOBES !!
  • i dont i mean legally it makes sense for same sex couples to get the same benefits
  • Yes, she's see's the importance of families, and that marriage is about prosperity. You can't start a family being a same sex couple.
  • yes i think she handled the questiion very well and that prez hilton is a joke
  • Unfortunately there are many bigots besides you that would agree.
  • I do support it. Not only because I support what she answered with, but because she answered honestly and didn't compromise her answer just so she could win. That's what a competition like that is about. Not giving an answer to please the judges and the people watching you, but giving an honest answer and being true to your morals and values.
  • Bigots, mainly.
  • I support her 100% and more people need to stand up against this progressive movement, it,s ruining our country.
  • now who the hell would be interested in what an " air head" has to say about anything ... not me!
  • Calling each other names doesn't answer the question. There of course are many people who believe the same way as you do about marriage. However, if you happen to be created in a way that an honest sexual relationship was impossible for you, with the opposite sex and you had a high sex drive. What would you do? Until you have to walk their walk it is difficult to say weather or not you would try to redefine what God said.
  • Well I believe gays and lesbians should have the right to get married legally.
  • Hey if you don't believe in gay marriage then don't marry a gay person!"
