The days of free speech are over.

Whether you agree with her or not, Miss Prejean is entitled to her opinions. I disagree with her opinion on Gay Marriage, however, I will defend to the death, her right to express those opinions. But it seems that we are fast losing our right to free speech in this country.

Senator Nazi Pelosi and Senator "Dingy" Harry Reid want to reinstate the (UN)fairness doctrine to put a muzzle on free speech. Mario Armando Lavandeira (Perez Hilton) wants to shut up those who oppose Gay marriage, and now, the California pageant wants to take away Miss Prejean's Miss CA title because of a "provocative" picture?

Someone tell me, what's so provocative about this picture? I've seen more skin in a Victoria Secrets catalog.

Now, just so we're clear, I'm not denying Mario's right to free speech. He has every right to say what he thinks. But so does Carrie Prejean. And so do I. And if you don't like it, tough.

Great post Al.

Irony just abouts everywhere. She has a right to her [wrong] belief about homosexuality as well as a right to voice it. As a hetero, I do find that picture provocative, but I say, so what? Doesn't Miss America have a bikini contest anyway? Let's not pretend for a moment Miss America is an IQ test....

So we have hypocrisy and irony everywhere. As long as no one is hurting or infringing other's rights, why is it so hard for people to live and let live?

Anyway, kudos, I enjoy your blog.

It's always been my opinion, that everyone has a right to their opinions, even if their opinions differ (i.e., they're wrong) with mine. :) And while some people might find her pictures "risque," I would not call them distasteful.
