What Do Y'all Think?

Forty-eight hours after Miss USA runner-up, Miss California Carrie Prejean, sparked a controversy with her answer over gay marriage, the fallout has been seen & heard throughout the media nationwide. For those of you who may still be in the dark on this one (though it is making headlines everywhere, so it is quite hard to miss), during the Miss USA pageant Sunday evening, celebrity blogger and pageant judge, Perez Hilton, asked the contestant from California if she believed in gay marriage. Quite honestly, this would be a rather obvious question for the West Coast contestant, considering the Proposition 8 ruling to ban gay marriages originated in her home state. Prejean’s response was that she and her family believed that "marriage should be between a man and a woman." Among the boos, mixed with applause, Hilton says that Miss California’s response cost her the Miss USA crown & title. He thinks she should have given a more diplomatic response that would have been more amenable to a majority of America , considering the Miss USA position is an ambassador for our country. Carrie Prejean says she stands by what she said and would say it again if given another chance. What do y’all think?
