Hip and Thigh: Smiting Theological Philistines with a Great Slaughter. Judges 15:8

Don't tell me there's another one?

I guess Donald Trump turned traitor against Carrie Prejean and fired her from being Miss California. This is a reversal of his previous defense of her back in May when all the controversy began swirling around over her views on gay marriage.

Carrie Prejean's "firing" must have happened on our travel day, because I totally missed it. Besides, I don't normally follow the national sagas of beauty queens. However, because her original comments about gay marriage became international news, I devoted a post to her.

Actually, I was more perplexed how a bikini wearing, 21-year old sex-pot could get two full days on Focus on the Family to talk about her views on traditional family marriage. The way she, a 21-year old bikini wearer, was turned overnight into a champion defending marriage between only a man and a woman as if she had some profound wisdom to impart to the world was truly astonishing.

However, continued tensions between her and the Miss USA organization (it looks like some sleazy lawyer is involved with a lot of that tension), forced Trump to release her from being Miss California.

Now, a new Miss California has been named, some gal named Tami (with an "i") Farrell. And to the chagrin of gay marriage advocates, she holds the exact same views on marriage as her predecessor. In fact, when she was asked if she held similar views on gay marriage as Carrie Prejean, Tami (with an "i") responded: "Uh huh." That's a pretty decisive answer in my book.

Also, it turns out -- get this -- she's a Christian, too. Just like Carrie.

I have always thought Christians were under represented at beauty pageants.

Anyhow, she affirms the biblical view of marriage between one man and one woman. But, after doing a Google image search, she doesn't seem to affirm the biblical view of modesty, lust, and temptation.

One nugget of insight she did provide: In response to a question about how she felt about gay marriage, she astutely answered, "You know, I think it's hilarious right now that the world is turning to beauty queens for the answers for this."

Yep, it couldn't be any more hilarious.

Hmmm?... What to think?...

"You know, I think it's hilarious right now that the world is turning to beauty queens for the answers for this."

Now, there's a nugget of wisdom in that statement!

Mad World heard playing in the background as contenders of the King's crown(s) are asked to Scripturally define: beauty queen. Runners must consider in answering: Psalm 45:13; Proverbs 4:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:12;3:12.

Remind me again when we decided that looking good in swimsuit automatically made you capable of being a spokesperson for Christianity?

I think its hilarious that so called Christian parents are pimping their little girls who then grow up to believe that selling their bodies for a living is a good thing.

I wrote on Dobson's aiding and abetting of Prejean. Let's hope he doesn't take up the G-string of this new spokesperson for Christ.
