WTF - Alabama Praised Ms. California

It's true, I am Southern born and Southern bred because my home was in Alabama. But when I hear news like this I'm reminded why I left. Apparently, a Republican from Montgomery, Jay Love, introduced a resolution to the Alabama House of Representatives to praise Ms. California for her answer in the Ms. U.S.A. pageant.

In case you've been living under a rock and didn't hear about this, during the pageant last Saturday night, judge Perez Hilton asked Ms. California a question about what states should do now that four states allow gay marriage. In her answer to the question, Ms. California basically said in her United States, marriage would be between a man and a woman. There were several boos from the audience following her answer. Some people think it was this answer that cost her the title.

The Alabama House actually passed the resolution. REALLY. Why is something this trivial and irrelevent beingd discussed in the Alabama Congress. Do they not have anything more important to do?

But seriously this entire thing sickens me. Yes I was disappointed by her answer, but come on people, this is a beauty pageant. These contestants didn't get to this point because of their smarts. But even more disturbing than her answer was Perez Hilton's reponse to her answer. Have you seen his post on YouTube, you can watch it here. Why does she have to be a bitch and a cunt just because she doesn't agree with you. That was petty and immature in my opinion showed more ignorance than Ms. California.

And now this action by Alabama that basically says that the state is endorsing intolerance and homophobia. Aren't these people being paid to make important decisions and pass legislation that will help people? What is the point of this resolution?
