Maggie Gallagher, America’s favorite Mama Bigot, was on hand to introduce Carrie Prejean, America’s favorite Beauty Bigot, at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. today. Yes, that’s where Stephen Baldwin and Bishop Harry Jackson are hanging out spreading the hatred gospel this weekend. If you get off on watching sad people write their own histories as hatemongers, then come along for the ride.
And then came Carrie, invoking her creator to explain why she was on that Miss USA stage: “God chose me for that moment … because He knew that I would not only be the one to stick up for Him and the truth, but he knew that I am strong to get through all of the junk that I have been through.” But wait, there’s more!: “Even though I didn’t win the crown that night, I know that the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in Heaven for me.”
Bless her. Because this girl, and Maggie, are still fronting that they are the victims; that supporters of gay rights are the intolerant ones. That we’re merely having a difference of opinions, rather than one group advocating discrimination against an entire class of people, while the other fights for equal treatment.
See Carrie’s full speech here. We’ll make the popcorn.
