Big ups to Miss Cali

So, the question is, was it fair to eliminate Miss California for her views on same-sex marriage? I would have to answer no.
The most controversial topic of today was asked by a homosexual judge, clearly meaning he had a bias in how he wanted the question answered. With it being a representative California answering, I guess he thought he would get the answer he wanted. Too bad for both people that he got one of those the voted yes on Prop 8 to answer the question and answer it truthful to herself.
Miss California does not believe in same-sex marriage. What is the big deal. She answered the question politely and honestly. She did not "gay bash" anyone or say anything incorrect. She explained herself and her stance. The most important aspect is that she stayed true to herself.
The point of this contest is to choose who best represents America through her answers, poise, talent, etc. Well, America did vote yes on prop 8, hence the reason for the riots and angry people who believe differently. So, in a sence, her answer represented the country.
Also, just the fact that she was willing to speak her mind to a homosexual judge, knowing that he probably believes in same-sex marriage. She did not let that stop her from voicing her values and traditions. She did not give into the pressure and just say what she knew he wanted to hear.
In the end, she was cut because of her answer. According to Perez Hilton, it was not her answer that eliminated her but the way she answered. I do not believe that. He wanted to hear what he wanted to hear. He did not hear that and he dropped her from the competition.
In my she's the real winner.

Students Protest Obama

I applaud people who stand up for what they believe. Whether it is two people or two hundred, if you stand up for your rights, that's all that matters. Especially when it comes to religious beliefs because people seem to like to knock people know for that the most.
Students at Notre Dame are protesting against President Barack Obama presenting the commencement address at their university. They are protesting because the stem cell research goes against the Catholic belief due to the aborted babies. Obama has allowed for stem cell research to be possible after all these years of Bush not allowing it. Since Notre Dame is a Catholic university based on Catholic principles, the students are opposed to what Obama is doing. Therefore, since his actions go against their beliefs, they are not supporting him coming to their school.
This is very inspirational. I am a Christian, so I also do not agree with stem cell research. Although, for the most part I am an Obama supporter, I do not his decision on stem cell research. I completely understand where they are coming from and why they are doing it.
As far as the rest of the nation goes, they might not understand. Most people do not understand why there is such a disagreement with abortion, let alone the research. Is it even proven that this research will help. How long will the research continue before we figure it out. How many fetuses will be used? To take advantage of a life that has no voice, seems so unfair. Everyone should have a right to live. It's not our choice to take that life.
The students at Notre Dame are brave for protesting a president that the nation seems to be in love with. More people, especially students should do that. Maybe La Verne could learn something. Although there is nothing like that on this campus to protest, there are other things that we could rise up and fight. Unfortunately, there is not enough fight in us as a whole to do anything about it. Let's stand up, unite and fight.
