Did you hear about the Miss USA participant who was asked by a gay man (one of the judges) about what she thought of gay marriage?  Her wording was kind of funny, but basically she said she believed marriage was between a man and a woman.  Reports say this may have cost her the title as she ended up runner up.  It was pretty brave of her to make that statement in what was basically a “gay friendly” crowd.  Now heres the rub …do we hold her up as a hero of traditional values when she herself promotes beauty contests that basically just pushes physical beauty and body image?  But still, it makes for an interesting story.
