    Oh! PINK NEWS, not this silly cow again? What are you trying to do to us–bore us to death?

  2. ‘Christian groups have asked Obama to temporarily sever diplomatic links with the UK.’ If anything ever indicated the limits of rational thought of these groups this is it !

    To be mocked because of your faith is so simple if you make yourself a sitting duck by talking about you faith in the truthfulness of the Bible on some subjects, while at the same time showing your body to strangers. I’m sure there’s some paragraph in the ‘good’ book on that and the result will be a stoning or something. Bet you Carrie never thought of that!

  4. I know it’s not very charitable of me, but HA HA! You were just asking for that, Miss California.

  5. What John F said… are they seriously expecting to lobby Obama to sever diplomatic ties with the entire United Kingdom based on one badly judged off the cuff remark made by a shadow cabinet member about a beauty queen on a comedy quiz show? Since when did Alan Duncan speak for an entire nation?
    Talk about making a storm in a teacup. Is every comedy jibe going to be elevated to this level of global importance, or just the ones the US evangelical right don’t like?
    As for Miss California, the words “glasshouses” and “stones” spring to mind.

  6. These moral bulldogs are normally hypocrites. The woman is a prejudiced bigot and as such needs to be sidelined and ignored.

  7. I wonder what her god thinks of her flashing her tits for money

  8. When the religious right adopted her as their poster girl, I’m not sure this is the kind of poster they had in mind.

    It could be said they boobed.

    *picks up coat and leaves*

  9. ” Christian groups in the US ”
    there are thousands of Christian groups in the US (denominations, lobbying groups, campaigning groups, charity groups, etc.), Which ones have sked Obama to temporarily sever diplomatic links with the UK? Was it a major one with influence or was it a tiny nutty one with 3 members?
    These kind of details are important so that we know if it’s really news or not.
    To the person who said evangelicals, my guess is that it would be a fundamentalist lobbying group not evangelicals. (Evangelicals, would that be right–Evangelicals who are conservative-small government types, or pro-Obama left-evangelicals?).

    Her tits are more than likely plastic and as false as the rest of her ! If she won i’d hate to see the other cows that lost ….

  11. “But I was raised in a way that you can never compromise your beliefs and your opinions for anything.”
    Nice to know that teenage nude photos are part of her ‘Christian’ beliefs – what a silly mare!!!!

    If I understand it correctly, Alan Duncan did NOT threaten this stupid woman in any way – he expressed his opinion about her stupidity and added that if she’s found dead he’d be a chief suspect …. more a comment of the morals, ethics and intelligence [or lack thereof] of the idiots who would defend her ridiculous stance!!

  12. Yet another hypocrite masquerading under the banner of being oh-so christian. Yes, she’s not perfect, no-one is, but it is her who’s being a judgemental cow.

    Since she’s soooo Christian that she must use a beauty pageant to publicly oppose gay marriage, maybe she should be stoned to death for showing her breasts in public (the logic is equally “sound”).

  14. I want to call her names but i won’t. The best thing about this zombie christian (for straight men) is not between her ears but between her thighs. If there is a god all her children(eggs+sperm) should be borm GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!no, SUPER GAY! hehehehehehehahahahahhahohohohohoho

  15. Having shown her breasts when she was teenager was an example of sinful things that falls into our life as a sinful beings, but I feel that as she grew in her Christianity, she asked for forgiveness and received it, and changed her action in that sort of behavior. Who among us has not sinned? Only Jesus Christ can say He was sinless.

    And a behavior 4-5 years ago as she was still lacking in maturity does not reflect on her present belief system now as a young lady. So her belief that homosexuality goes against her Christian beliefs shouldn’t detract from her pronouncement against it. You’ll have to find something more “evil” about her to make your condemnation worth much than nitpicking.

  16. aol news site said – ‘good on her. we wish her well’, after her comments concerning gay marriage, i was furious an american multi-national corporation were taking a side on the issue

  17. Oh come on Hank, stop apologising for this hypocritcial little whore

  18. Oh, super… Hank is back. Not dead yet, Hank, no? Lung cancer still not kicked in yet to spare us all from your insipid homophobic prattling?

    Oh, well, we’re patient.

    Poor Miss California… not only is she a fool, but she’s a slut as well. How perfectly “christian” of her to be a total hypocrite. Just like Hank… another tit.

  19. Webster’s definition of whore, PROSTITUTE” any woman who
    engages in sexual intercourse” SLUT: careless, dirty woman,
    a sexually promiscuous woman” HYPOCRITE, “person who pretends
    to be what he/she is not.” (She did those photos when she was a
    teenager, she’s not pretending to be that immature girl now,
    she’s living what she believes.”

    So if you people are going to criticize her, pick your words
    and your insinuations with some forethought.
    Or if you have any “dirty, immoral secrets” about her, let me
    know because you sound jealous of her strong beliefs.

    Sure I’m back and reading everything you write.

    Now, Now Will and Hank, You two Darling Children Of Pink. The backs of your legs will be spanked and you will be forced to kiss and make up you naughty, naughty boys. So Behave yourselves from now–Au reservoir!

    just one, minor, point Hank;

    how can she be living what she believes, when the bible has strong injunctions against such immodesty as strutting round, semi-clothed and lasciviously, for anyone other than her lawful husband?

    I judge nobody, but you have to recognise the contradiction and hypocricy: you’ve stated that her actions are fully justifiable despite the contradictions.

  22. Yo Mihangel. you ask a valid question.
    “How can she be living what she believes, when the bible has strong injunctions against such immodesty as strutting round, semi-clothed and lasciviously, for anyone other than her lawful husband?
    I judge nobody, but you have to recognize the contradiction and hypocrisy: you’ve stated that her actions are fully justifiable despite the contradictions.”

    I can’t give you a Biblical answer that covers the answer perfectly. I guess with the changing times some things are viewed in the “grey area.” I’m simply saying that this is
    a public event that is not meant to create lascivious, lustful, immoral, vulgar thoughts to the viewers, though with some people it certainly could.
    MY COMMENT:
    The topic of “modesty” is taught in the New Testament and is binding today. “Modesty” is an orderly arrangement of clothes that does not hide the inner or spiritual side of man. Immodesty leads to lust and other sins. Faithful and knowledgeable Christians do not wear some clothes in public: mini-shirts, sun-dresses, high-slit skirts, low-cut dresses, short-shorts, halter or tube tops, sheer blouses, swimsuits, tank-tops and other revealing clothing. Persistent immodesty is evidence of rebellion toward God, his Word, the church, fathers and husbands. Immodesty ruins the Christian influence and impairs the effectiveness of the Gospel.

    Comparatively speaking, the inward spiritual adornment is more precious to God and more effective for Christians than outward physical adorning. The apostle Peter teaches a disposition that was also practiced by godly women, such as Sarah (verses 5, 6). Peter did not prohibit wearing jewelry, cosmetics or clothes; he did prohibit extreme adornment or that adornment which overshadowed (displaced) a holy and referential behavior. Both Paul and Peter urge holiness that is to be exhibited, not hindered, outwardly.

    While this will not categorically justify Miss California’s participation in the beauty event, perhaps God can, in His wisdom, use her to send a more Christian message than any distraction that might be taken from a swimsuit display (I don’t believe that the show requirements would permit any clothing be worn that would be condemned as obscene) .

    The Bible tells of many people who have “sinned more greatly” and eventually have gotten stronger and been able to be a blessing to sinners who have accepted Jesus Christ, so I can’t
    judge Miss California because as Matthew 7:5 says, “You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

  23. “How can she be living what she believes, when the bible has strong injunctions against such immodesty as strutting round, semi-clothed and lasciviously, for anyone other than her lawful husband?
    I judge nobody, but you have to recognize the contradiction and hypocrisy: you’ve stated that her actions are fully justifiable despite the contradictions.”

    Yo Mihangle:

    I can’t give you a Biblical answer that covers the answer perfectly because it calls for
    expanding interpretation to get the a meaning to this behavior.

    I guess with the changing times some things are viewed in the “grey area.” I’m simply saying that this is a public event that is not meant to create lascivious, lustful, immoral, vulgar thoughts to the viewers, though with some people it certainly could even if the bathing suit is confined
    to commonly accepted appearance that we see on the beaches these days.
