Miss USA Pageant Turning Point

The 60 seconds everyone is talking about from the Miss USA pageant.

Judge Perez Hilton asks Miss California, Carrie Prejean, what she thinks about legalizing same sex marriage and she tells it how she feels.

Some extremely interesting responses have come out since this event.

Keith Lewis, co-director of the pageant:

“As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman,” said Keith Lewis who runs the Miss California competition. “I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family.”

President Obama:

“I’m a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”

Elton John:

“If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership… The word ‘marriage,’ I think, puts a lot of people off. You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.”
