From Fox News, 4/20/2009:

When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said, “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

Um, no, Ms. Prejean, we do NOT live in land where you can choose same-sex marriage. You flunked current events and therefore you did not deserve the crown.

As for how Ms. Prejean was raised, I was reminded of this song from South Pacific by the Barbra Streisand live concert over the weekend — the singer here is Mandy Patinkin:

Once upon a time, didn’t parents and churches teach that if a girl wore a bikini that meant she was a … ? Darn, I can’t think of the word right now. Never mind, it will come to me.

From South Pacific, music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II:

You’ve got to be taught
To hate and fear
You’ve got to be taught
From year to Year
It’s got to be drummed
in your dear little ear
You’ve got to be carefully taught

You’ve got to be taught
To be afraid
Of people whose eyes
are oddly made
And people whose skin
Is a different shade
You’ve got to be carefully taught

You’ve got to be taught
Before it’s too late
Before you are 6 or 7 or 8
To hate all the people
your relatives hate
You’ve got to be carefully taught
