Tami Farrell, the newly crowned beauty queen who is replacing the ousted Carrie Prejean as Miss California, apparently holds the same view as her predecessor, Carrie Prejean, and President Obama that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked Farrell, who is Christian, on his show today:
“[Prejean] went out and said that a marriage is between a man and a woman. Do you share that view?”
Farrell responded in the affirmative with a simple, “Uh huh.”
“You do, OK,” said Cavuto.
Farrell quickly added: “I don’t think that I have the right or anybody has a right to tell somebody who they can or can’t love. And I think that this is a civil rights issue. And I think that the right thing to do is let the voters decide.”
Earlier in the interview, Cavuto asked, “Do you mind my asking you, Tami, how you feel, about gay marriage since this has been such a hot issue with your predecessor?”
Farrell’s response: “You know, I think it’s hilarious right now that the world is turning to beauty queens for the answers for this. I think it’s an important issue and I think that it’s one that I don’t think I can win a battle. I don’t want to be any more divisive than it’s already become.” [via]
