Get up, Stand up! Stand up for your rights...

Posted Apr 23 2009 12:20am
It's not often I get all powered up about things, but I simply can't NOT say something about this whole Miss California issue.

To be honest, I'm a little angry at the fact that people are being so harsh and so judging. In fact, I can't believe her answer is even an issue.

We live in a country where we all have a right to our opinions. We live in a country where we can choose what we believe and live out those beliefs. We live in a country where we celebrate a land of differences living peacefully together.

Like it or not, we are free. Free to be our own people. Free to be different.

Nobody wants to be judged. Whatever your orientation sexually, religiously, want to be accepted. And yet, the moment somebody stands up for their beliefs, she is burned at the stakes.

How can people be so outraged that she said what she said?

I feel outraged that they are even taking the time to judge her, when they themselves are trying to protest being judged.

And the thing is, she wasn't being judgemental! She never put anybody down. She simply answered a question with what she believes.

Remember, she was running for Miss USA. USA, the United States of America. Home Of The Free. She was not running for Miss Politically Correct. See the difference?

She should be honored for staying true to who she is. For standing up for what she believes. For not being a "follower" or selling out by taking the middle of the road answer.

Regardless of what we believe or how we live, we were not given the right to judge. That is not our job nor is it our place.

Want to be loved? Want to be accepted?

Then we need to start doing the same.
