Where's the Scandal for Miss California in the Miss USA Pageant?

Scandal at the Miss USA Pageant? Surely not. Miss California answered a question about gay marriage honestly and loses the title because of it. The scandal was her answer, not the loss of the title, unfortunately.

I've taken Dante Thomas' song Miss California and changed some of the lines to suit.

She's Miss California
Hottest thing in West L.A.
Doesn't think that you should marry
If you happen to be gay
If she did then you should know
She'd now be Miss USA
She's Miss California
Coz she doesn't like the gays

I think the controversy is that the first honest answer in the history of the Miss USA Pageant was provided and the entrant was not respected for it. It's not as if it is a given that homosexuals should be allowed to marry. I'm on her side when it comes to my opinion. Marriage should be between a man and a woman. But I also have gay friends and I do not condemn them for it. Call me a bigot but that's my opinion. Anyway, Miss California, I'd be rooting for you.

If you want controversial behaviour I would have to say (ooh, I'm starting to sound like a Miss USA contestant) that the United States not attending the UN Anti-Racism talks, along with Israel, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and New Zealand, is scandalous. It doesn't matter if a crazy guy by the name of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from Iran has something to say that upsets a lot of countries, and lead to an EU walkout from the talks, it was the perfect opportunity to listen and rebut his argument. The fact that they chose not to face a difficult statement, that Israel was rascist, is scandalous. Grow up world! Face the man and stare him down. If you don't agree you tell him so. Wouldn't it have been a great gesture to see some 35-odd countries say that they don't agree with someone's opinion? Isn't that what the forum was for? They should be combatting racism not walking away from it like children.
