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.”

recentnewsA recent Gallup Poll reports that the American public is rejecting gay marriage and rallying to traditional marriage.

The percentage of Americans who do not want same-sex marriage to become law rose from 53 percent to 57 percent since 2007.  The percentage of those who favor gay marriage dropped from 46 percent to 40 percent over the same period. The move represents a  reversal of pro-gay-marriage sentiment, which began to appear in the late 1990s.

Observers say various events may be responsible for the changing tide. From the overreaching judicial imposition of gay marriage upon the traditional marriage state of Iowa, to the ongoing public relations attack on beauty queen Carrie Prejean led by blogger Perez Hilton (and more recently by Keith Lewis at Miss USA’s K2 Productions), gay bullying tactics and aggression are backfiring everywhere, causing rapid erosion of public support for same sex marriage. 

Which brings us to our popular Weekend Poll Question:
