Miss USA runner-up: God was testing my faith with gay marriage questionApril 21st, 2009 - 6:15 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, April 21 (ANI): Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean believes ‘God was testing her faith’ after she answered a question about gay marriage.
Miss California, during the recent Miss USA telecast, had picked Perez Hilton’s question and replied she was against the legalisation of gay marriage in California.
And when asked how was she feeling after missing out on the crown, religious Prejean said it was another test.
“By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I’m glad I stayed true to myself,” Fox News quoted her as saying.
Prejean further said she just spoke her mind without intending to cause offence.
She continued: “I have no regrets about answering [judge Perez Hilton] honestly. He asked me for my opinion and I gave it to him. I have nothing against gay people, and I didn’t mean to offend anyone in my answer.” (ANI)
