Miss California在美國小姐選舉時勇敢的回答

聽豬流感的新聞聽得膩了,與你們分享美國最近一則有趣的新聞
 
Miss USA選舉時,Miss California Carrie Prejean被裁判Perez Hilton問到一個在Hollywood不能說不贊成的問題:「最近Vermont成了第四個接受同性婚姻的州,你認為其他州該跟從嗎?」
 
返教會並有事奉的Carrie這樣回答:

"I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage," she said at the pageant.

"And you know what? I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

她的回答觸怒了Perez,Perez後來在自己的blog上說Carrie is a dumb bitch、無腦。實際上Carrie在選舉中一直領先,在泳裝與晚裝環節上都是第一名,但後來只得第二名。

Carrie對Perez的批評,這樣回答:" I can only say to him that I will be praying for him. I feel sorry for him, I really do." 

這件事在美國引起了輿論的波濤,罵她和支持她的人都很多。

 

後來Carrie被邀往教會分享,有興趣可看以下有字幕的Slides。她曾被加州選舉的組織要求她道歉,免得得罪同性戀的人,令組織的捐款減少,但她拒絕了。挺好看的,希望你喜歡。

在西方社會Hollywood文化中,敢堅守並說出自己信念,真的勇敢。

 

怕香港文化也在走歐美的路,不知兼備愛與勇敢的人,又有多少?
