As for Prejean, there is still the possibility she could go on to become Miss USA if winner Kristen Dalton wins the Miss Universe pageant this summer. Meanwhile, she plans to continue making the public appearances that comes with her Miss California USA duties.
On Thursday, she received a standing ovation while presenting an award at the Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards in Nashville, but said, "up in Hollywood, I'm not sure what their reaction would be to my showing up at a movie premiere."
She said she would be willing to meet with representatives from California's largest gay rights group "as long as it's not political."
If anything, Prejean has solidified her stance in the last week. McPherson, who preaches against homosexuality, has been acting as her adviser and encouraging her to use her newfound fame to persuade other evangelical Christians to share their views, even if they are unpopular.
"I learned that God has a bigger crown than any man can give you," she said.
I was wrong to state earlier that conservatives haven't rallied around Prejean the way they should be. Indeed, the support for Prejean has been huge and rightfully so, esp. considering the heap of abuse she's still receiving from the Left for daring to stick to her principles instead of dumping them all in the name of political-correctness and a silly Miss USA title. From the looks of it so far, what makes you even more proud of Prejean is the fact that she isn't backing down from her belief that marriage was created for a man and a woman. Too often we've seen so-called conservatives, ala Pastor Rick Warren, retreat when confronted by the immoral Left. Instead, Prejean is showing folks that she's not a wuss and she needs to be commended for that.
