Former Miss California sues for religious discrimination
How naive I am. I thought the Miss California saga featuring Carrie Prejean had come to an end when she was stripped of her crown back in June. I was wrong. Oh so wrong. And entering law school I should have known better.
Today Prejean sued against pageant officials for “libel, slander and religious discrimination, accusing them of telling her to stop mentioning God even before her controversial remarks against gay marriage.” Those comments, of course, followed Perez Hilton’s asking of Prejean during the pageant what she thought about gay marriage. From E!:
No, you shouldn’t really be surprised that E! seized the chance to be flip about Christianity and showcase it institutional ignorance.
The above video is from an appearance Prejean made at her hometown church, The Rock in San Diego.
