It has been all over the news so I am sure many of you are aware of Carrie Prejean's, Miss USA California, response when asked a question about gay marriages. Prejean said that it was her personal belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman. In front of judges and millions of Americans, Prejean stayed true to herself and her personal beliefs and perhaps, therefore, lost the Miss America crown.
I hope her example can encourage more people, especially young people, to be just as bold and proud in their personal beliefs. Our culture strongly and attractively promotes a message about human sexuality that is not in accord with our beliefs as Christians. I pray that we each may find the strength and courage within to stand up for the message of Christ proudly and confidently.
