Miss California Appears at the Dove Awards

prejean.jpgMiss California, Carrie Prejean, may have lost the Miss USA title for explaining her opposition to same-sex marriage, but it looks like she’s gained a new gig as Christian idol. After appearing on Fox News, NBC’s “Today” and other talk shows to defend her stance, saying she would “rather be Biblically correct than “politically correct,” Prejean was invited to to appear at the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards–the Christian world’s Grammys–on Thursday night. The 21-year-old, who says she’s a longtime fan of Christian music, introduced a performance by the band MercyMe.
Joanne Brokaw over on Gospel Soundcheck has more on last night’s Dove Award winners.

    Not all Christians agree with her or believe that the bible is against gay marriage. She does not represent the thinking of believers everywhere.
    While she is probably doing what she thinks is right, she is actually causing a lot of hurt.

  • Jill

    What bible are you reading???

  • Your Name

    God is very clear what he says in his word. I am very proud of her for not wavering from her beliefs. Sin is hurtfull Lynn that is why Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Jesus loves the sinner but hates the sin. Marriage should be between one man and one woman, that is what the bible says period!

    The final question in Ms. USA requires tact and wit because the winner will represent the country in Ms. Universe. Ms. California’s ‘gay’ question DID NOT ask her if she’s pro or anti-gay marriage – it didn’t ask about her personal feelings about the issue. It was asking about how she would answer a sensitive and divisive issue with tact, which she failed to do. Yes, she gave an honest and brave answer, but it was not the right response.
    At the national level, these girls are trained very well by their organizers to answer sensitive questions carefully. Unfortunately, Ms. California wasn’t smart enough to recognize the requirements of that final question. Finally, she lost the crown because Ms. North Carolina edged her out in most every category. Even before that final question, Ms. NC was already ahead. Ms. California’s ‘personal’ answer to her final question sealed her fate as a runner up.

    Thank God she had the RIGHT answer!!And she was willing to give up her earthly crown for a Heavenly one.

    Miss California sure is suffering for her beliefs, isn’t she? I don’t know how she manages all this sympathy.
    “Christian idol”…first laugh I’ve had all day.

    Reminds me of a letter written to Dr. Laura:
    Dear Dr. Laura:
    Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from you and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When, for example, someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind him that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other laws and how best to follow them.
    When I burn a bull at the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev 1:9). The problem is my neighbors — they claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
    I know that I am not allowed contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual “impurity” (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
    Lev 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
    I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
    Another friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?
    Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20 or is there some wiggle room here?
    Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
    I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I play football if I wear gloves?
    My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing two different kinds of thread (usually cotton/polyester blends). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev. 24:10-16)? Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people that sleep with their in-laws (Lev. 20:14)?
    I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help me clear up my thinking on these matters. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s Word is eternal and unchanging.

    God, in the Person of Jesus Christ, is very clear in what He had to say about homosexuality: nothing whatsoever.
    21st century American Christianity has completely lost its way and is more than a focus group for the politicians than a religion based on the teachings of Christ.

    If you notice the Old Testament was a way of living that protected Gods people. The Bible is not a book of keeping you from a wonderful and joyous life but one of good sense and protection from risky behavior. The New Testament is our freedom from the punishment we all deserve (Jews and Gentiles). As you read God’s word and let it into your heart you will have such joy that pleasing God is exactly like seeing our parents faces when we make them proud! It’s about love and safety not hatefulness. I pray that we can all turn from our sinful behaviors in love and pray for each other as we all struggle with the enemy in this life. Good for Miss California for giving an honest answer in a very hostile environment. Don’t say what you think people want to hear. Say what you feel is right with gentleness and thoughtfulness.

    Thank you for boldly and courageously standing up for right and true. The Dove Awards are a significant place to speak to urge other celebrities to do likewise.

  • Damian

    People should not get to pick and choose what parts of the bible they wish to believe in. I’m a gay christian and I’ve lived my entire life countering hateful rhertoric about how Jesus hates people like me. Unfortunately, Miss California couldn’t truly understand God’s compassion and true teachings enough to be a reflection of it when she was called on to do so. My prayers go out to her and to anyone who follows God with a closed heart and mind.

    I wish the media and some Christians would stop assisting Miss California, Carrie Prejean in promoting herself as a representative of morality and Christianity. The fact that she strips down and prances around in a little bikini for all to judge how “hot” her body looks shows she is not a good Christian role model. I write for and advise people around the globe on biblical Christian living. I do believe that marriage is between a man and a woman based on scripture.
