Heroes of feminism

Imagine a world in which Carrie Prejean is hailed, marriage is properly defined and defended in law, and people treat one another with basic decency and respect.  Now look at the liberal world that smears, attacks, and bullies good people and time-tested life principles. In that hellish world, liberals let loose attack lawyers and media thugs to materially destroy anyone who defends humanity’s greatest institutions, traditions, and people. Culture war is real war.

But Carrie Prejean is a warrior, and liberals fear her for a reason. When people like Prejean stand up and speak out, liberalism crumbles. It is for this reason that liberals plot daily to destroy America’s heroic conservatives by any means necessary. It’s a well funded, multi-billion dollar effort.

Yet here’s reality: so long as good people and organizations rally behind the Prejeans of our society, an entire army of anti-American thugs can’t harm her. There is strength in numbers, in coalitions, and in social networks—these provide an impenetrable shield.

So stand up for Carrie and all those like her who speak out for what’s right. United we stand!

married In a June 15 press release, national LGBT-rights group The Empowering Spirits Foundation (ESF) called upon the worldwide gay-lesbian-other community to immediately cease attacking Carrie Prejean, the People’s Miss California USA.

The ESF, a grassroots San Diego, Calif. organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender normalcy, issued the alert amidst a growing worldwide backlash against homosexual activists like Perez Hilton, Keith Lewis, and others who have repeatedly used intimidation, threats, firings, and attacks on the Prejean family to advance gay rights.

“Demeaning Carrie Prejean or others by using terms such as bigot will not advance our cause of civil rights and social justice,” said A. Latham Staples, executive director of the Empowering Spirits Foundation. “We must not marginalize someone just because they believe differently, as this is the very respect in differing opinion we are asking for from them.”

The ESF’s call for a retreat from demeaning others is, in the minds of many, continued proof that the LGBT movement has been severely damaged by its gay bullying tactics and smear campaigns aimed at Prejean, a fan-favorite beauty queen who continues to rally people of good will everywhere to her cause for traditional marriage.

Unlike the Perez Hiltons of the world, the ESF correctly understands that American citizens like Prejean have the right to express opinions without fear of reprisals and punishment. The organization expressed hope that “both sides can engage in respectful dialogue and come to see similarities rather than differences.”

Trad-marriage spokesmodel Carrie Prejean is completely unstoppable. Like any enterprising young woman who seeks to climb the ladder of success and shatter glass ceilings on the way up, Prejean has worked hard on her career and developed high expectations. But could the People’s Miss California 2009 ever have imagined that the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant would be a mere stepping stone on the path to becoming Queen of the World? After finishing her brief stint as Miss California, Prejean is reportedly working on a tell-all book deal and a rumored gig with FOX television. (See Prejean speak out on Friday’s Today program with Matt Lauer.)

No matter how hard the Perez Hiltons, Keith Lewises, and Shanna Moaklers of the world seek to bring down Prejean for speaking out in favor of traditional marriage, the courageous fashion model becomes ever more powerful, rallying good people everywhere while urging Americans to speak out. 

“I want to encourage Americans of all ages to not be silent and to speak out and state your beliefs and not be afraid,” the steely Miss California said in a recent interview with Sean Hannity. The feminist icon from San Diego added, “You will probably face vicious attacks, but not nearly the attacks that I’ve had. So, don’t be afraid.”

prejeanwalkCarrie Prejean has left the pageant world to pursue new opportunities, including a potentially huge book deal.

Less than a month after receiving her crown as Miss California, the San Diego beauty and pro-marriage spokesmodel has reportedly broken her contract with K2 Productions, the independent producers of the Miss California USA pageant who demanded that Prejean appear in Playboy and also in the reality series “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” 

According to one news report, Prejean was constrained by the pageant contract and continued to pursue outside opportunities beyond the zesty, sexist roles K2 assigned to Miss California. The press release from K2 confirmed that the organization fired her for failing to comply with contract demands: “This was a decision based solely on contract violations,” said Keith Lewis, executive director of K2 Productions.

In an interview with TMZ, the Miss USA runner-up noted that the pressure from Keith Lewis of K2 Productions was blatantly political: “What’s behind this, I think, is a political debate. They don’t agree with the stance that I took [on gay marriage and Prop 8]…. From day one they wanted me out, and they got what they wanted.”

Now that the much rumored break is final, Prejean is free to write books and take on other lucrative opportunities unaffiliated with the pageant, such as working with FOX News, which Prejean guest hosted in recent weeks.

marriagephotoThe adage “April showers bring May flowers” comes to mind for this installment of Marriage Month in Review, our monthly look back at the events and people who shaped the outlook for marriage and family in America.

First the April showers. On April 3, a Category 5 judicial hurricane devastated Iowa citizens when a handful of State Supreme Court justices imposed unnatural marriage law upon the people against their will, striking down the state’s 1998 Defense of Marriage Act and denying Iowans the right  to determine their own laws. The move set the people of Iowa scrambling to correct the judicial overreach, and citizen groups affirmed they will reinstate traditional marriage via a constitutional amendment as early as 2011.

As we near the end of another month, “April showers bring May flowers” comes to mind in the latest installment of This Month in Marriage News.
Despite setbacks from a month ago–chief among them, the imposition of gay marriage upon a vastly opposed Iowan citizenry  by activist judges–May has given the American family many reasons to cheer. A quick review of important headlines reveals that the marriage movement has picked up steam and has discovered a roadmap to rebuilding marriage and family after decades of legal and cultural deterioration. Here’s a look at some of the more sensational headlines, with a brief reflection on what it means to the future of American life:
California Ruling Shows Hurdles Remain for Gay Marriage 
Highlight quote: The ruling Tuesday by California’s Supreme Court upholding a ban on same-sex marriages shows that…the road toward full marriage rights remains difficult — particularly when voters are given a direct say”
Setback to Gay Marriage in New Hampshire
The state’s House of Representatives on Wednesday rejected changes that Gov. John Lynch had ordered for the same-sex marriage bill…The vote made the bill’s survival less certain.

But if April gave citizens reason to worry over the fate of families stripped of vital legal protections, May offered Americans a slew of reasons to cheer.  A review of the month’s top headlines reveals that the national marriage movement picked up steam and confirmed a state-by-state roadmap to rebuilding marriage after decades of legal and cultural deterioration.

Here’s a look at headlines that made an impact on marriage this past month:

prejeancommons2Marriage spokesmodel Carrie Prejean was spotted hosting “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday at 6 a.m. Eastern time following California’s Prop 8 amendment victory at the State Supreme Court. Miss California 2009 delivered the day’s news while discussing her busy agenda following the Miss USA pageant, which included a scheduled visit with U.S. troops Wednesday evening.

“I’m so excited…I’m going on the USS Ronald Reagan with five thousand troops,” said the collected California beauty queen, who fielded questions from co-hosts Brian Kilmaede and Steve Doocy while sitting in for Fox News Channel regular Gretchen Carlson.

The San Diego native will be flown out to the super aircraft carrier to show support for U.S. troops and also her sister, who is a second lieutenant.

“San Diego is a huge military town, and I’m very, very excited to meet the troops and show my support for them,” said the first time Fox guest host.

Prejean, 22, told the audience she is a junior at college and is studying to be a teacher but has taken time off to carry out a range of public activities as Miss California 2009.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked about Perez Hilton’s controversial remarks to Prejean during the Miss USA finals, noting that that model was vindicated by Tuesday’s court ruling upholding traditional marriage in California. Upon hearing that her marriage views matched a statement by the California Supreme Chief Justice saying marriage can be between a man and a woman only, Prejean cheerfully remarked, “So, I’m not the bad guy…I’m glad the people in California got to vote on this.”

The morning panel also addressed this year’s “American Idol” finalists. Prejean claimed to be an Adam Lambert fan, noting a common San Diego connection to Idol’s No. 2 singer. Reflecting on Lambert’s position as runner-up to Idol champion Kris Allen, Prejean affirmed, “Adam is going to be very successful. Sometimes the second-place winner becomes more successful than the actual winner.”

califmarriageIn a much-anticipated 6-1 ruling, the California Supreme Court today upheld the State’s ban on gay marriage, handing a sweeping victory to Californians who voted in favor of Proposition 8 last November. The ruling was widely viewed as justice for blacks, latinos, children, families, Miss California, and democracy itself.

Despite significant opposition from anti-marriage activists, the ballot initiative amending the state constitution passed by a 52 percent majority–a majority boosted by large turnout among Latinos and African Americans who overwhelmingly support traditional marriage.

In addition to providing justice to various minority groups, the ruling upheld the concept of democracy in America, in which the laws of society are determined by the people through a constitutional legislative process. In this case, the people of California have decreed that marriage is a contract between men and women only, siding with the historical definition of the institution. The seven-member panel of judges said in their ruling that they were bound to uphold a government of the people and by the people.

The greatest beneficiaries of today’s ruling were California’s children, who by the passing of Proposition 8 have received assurances that their interests are being honored and protected in law. The law of marriage traditionally stipulates that men and women are contractually bound to each other and their children for the long-range purpose of raising stable healthy families. The redefinition of marriage law away from its family orientation would have deprived children of the legal expectation of long-term parental care, exposing kids to greater risk of abandonment.
