Carrie Prejean Doesn’t Have Answers About Civil Unions, Gay Adoption

Despite the National Organization for Marriage making clear that Carrie Prejean does not speak for them (outside of that “No Offense” ad), Miss California continues her media tour. Her latest stop? Greta Van Susteran’s show on Fox News, where she subjected viewers to a rambling interview about something — we’re now absolutely confident — she does not understand at all. Listen to Prejean, who calls her stance on marriage “not hateful, it’s not discriminatory,” declare herself “not a politician,” which is the excuse she uses for not knowing where she stands on civil unions. Or gays adopting. Just traditional marriage, which is the only thing she believes she’s a qualified expert on.

VAN SUSTEREN: What is your thought on civil unions?

PREJEAN: My thought on civil unions? You know what, Greta? I don’t have the answers to everything. I’m not running for political office. I don’t have the answers to everything, you know, in the world out there.

But I think that there should be rights for people, you know, especially in California. I think that people that are homosexual should have some rights, you know, hospital rights, and things like that.

But I would like to be more educated on that, so when I do have a better answer for you, I will get back to you on that one.

But so far I just support traditional marriage, and that’s my main focus.

VAN SUSTEREN: What about adoption?

PREJEAN: Greta, I am focusing on marriage right now, not adoption, not civil unions, just traditional marriage, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to promote that.

VAN SUSTEREN: I understand, and I understand your position on traditional marriage. I’m just sort of trying to figure out where you draw the line in terms of what kind of rights that you think that a man and woman should have that maybe two men, two women, shouldn’t have.

And that’s why I was asking the question on civil unions and adoptions. I was just trying to sort it out for myself what you think.

PREJEAN: Well, I’m not a politician, so I can’t give you an answer to that.
