CARRIE Prejean has made it into a Republican pin-up girl because of her outspoken views on gay marriage, making her a conservative icon representing the integrity of opposite sex marriage. The governor of Alaska and former Republican VP candidate, Sarah Palin, has also joined the fight, defending Prejean.
As the runner-up in the 1984 Miss Alaska contest, Palin is no stranger to the World of Beauty Queen politics. Noting she had become "a liberal target myself", Palin praised Prejean for sticking to her convictions when controversial Miss USA judge Perez Hilton slipped a loaded question about gay marriage into an interview.
She declared that when she was asked about gay marriage, she felt "Satan was trying to tempt me".
The Miss Universe Organization, which also owns the Miss USA pageant, confirmed on Tuesday that it had sent a letter demanding the National Organization for Marriage to remove the Prejean spot from the air and the group's Web site. It includes footage from the April 19 pageant.
NOM executive director Brian Brown said the group did not plan to comply with the pageant's request.
"It is clearly fair use, and all they are attempting to do is silence us by using false legal claims," Brown said. "But they have another thing coming if they think these ads are coming down. None of us are relenting, least of all Carrie."
NOM President Maggie Gallagher also issued a statement Tuesday sympathizing with Prejean over the release of her modeling picture and saying it did not disqualify her as a traditional marriage advocate.
"Of course Carrie is not perfect," Gallagher said. "On a personal note, as a former unwed mother, I want to say to Americans: You don't have to be a perfect person to have the right to stand up for marriage."
Here is the video fottage of the advertisement:

misha said: Welcome to the America where individual opinions are no longer accepted unless they conform to the agenda being sponsored. Organizations consider it their right to cram their beliefs down our throats. Morality goes to the highest bidder. Are you for sale or do you stand for something? Stand for what you believe and respect others for doing the same. That way we know where to stand instead of living in lies and compromises that provide no foundation at all. It's very sad to see intelligent creatures acting so stupid.
GrayMatter said: Ms. Prejean is much too opinionated regarding the institution of marriage. She should use her energy towards other social issues that matter
Anonymous said: I stand up and cheer for what she did. The homosexual terrorists will stop at nothing to ruin the lives of whoever disagrees with them. STOP SHOVING HOMOSEXUALITY DOWN OUR THROATS!!!!!!!!! IM SICK OF IT!!!!!!! This is not a civil rights issue, its a LIFESTYLE issue. Those who choose that LIFESTYLE have to deal with the consequences of that LIFESTYLE which is depression, drug use, and disease. As far as religion goes, there is not one religion that approves of that LIFESTYLE. Wait until the muslims are running the show in America. The gays will beg for the Christians to help them when heads start to roll!!!!! And for the "oprah/God doesnt judge" fans, Jesus/God doesnt approve of gayness!!!!! Its in the Book!!!! Read it!!!! REPENT!!!!!!! Oprah is a self righteous hypocrite - self glorifying hound leading the way to hell. GO CARRIE PREJEAN!!! DONT LET THAT DISGUSTING WORM HILTON STEAL YOUR CROWN!!!!!!!!!! PROP 8 RULES!!!!!!!

jeff said: I think everyone is missing the point here. Go look at the photo - is this really a big deal? How do we even know she was topless? Maybe there were pasties. Its a sexy, but classy and tasteful picture: not pornography.
I respect the opinions of both sides of this issue, and I don't see why anyone cares this much about gay marriage to start with (disclosure: I voted no on 8). We all must live with the consequences of our statements: but she is young: give her a break, let her enjoy the "runner up" thing and move on to the next issue/ hypocrisy.
Westside Steve said: It is amazing the clown asked a hot question and doesn't have the decency to graciously accept her respectable answer. He responds by calling her a "bitch"...I respond by calling him dork, idiot, mush for brains and generally one of the nastiest people I've ever see in the media.
He, of all people, should respect her right to choose her beliefs as he probably screams and cries if someone doesn't respect his - the hypocrite.
As for the "nude" photo - please, it is no way distasteful. People need to get lives.
Jim said: This post is either knowingly false or else displays Miss Snead's misunderstanding of the Fair Use principle of copyright law as is referenced in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
What Ms. Snead does not say is that the NOM has the right, whether they use it or not, to challenge the Miss Universe Org. for the incredibly small portion of the pageant footage that they used.
This is why Perez Hilton's spurious claim for copyright was rebuffed by NOM's lawyers.
The faux 'scandal' about the 'nude' photo is desperation at its worst. Embarrassing on the part of the Perez Hilton side.
check out this interview said: Dobson: Why did you give the answer you did with regard to the affirmation of marriage?
Prejean: . . . I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA."
And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions.
