Pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6) for the uninitiated: the case of Caroline (Carrie) Michelle Prejean
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6)
The recent Miss USA pageant illustrated again what happens when the wisdom of Matthew 7:6 is ignored. Miss California 2009 Carrie Prejean was asked by Perez Hilton about her opinion on same-sex marriage. Carrie Prejean said –
I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be between a man and a woman.
People cheered her. One has to appreciate her guts for being honest. Carrie came in first runner up in the Miss USA pageant, and it is possible that her answer cost her the crown. Subsequently, Carrie was brutally attacked by homosexual activists and their allies. She was accused of polarizing people. The fault was solely Perez Hilton’s. People are polarized when it comes to same-sex marriage, even in the Netherlands and Scandinavian nations. Carrie could not claim she has not made up her mind or does not want to answer because such answers would give her a low score. But a yes or no answer would displease a lot of people. She knew the politically correct answer is yes for same-sex marriage, but spoke her mind. Had she said that she supported same-sex marriage, the religious right would hardly have bothered to cover the issue. A highly polarizing question should never be asked of a beauty pageant contestant.
Carrie’s statement made no reference to her religion or the Bible, but homosexual activists and their allies immediately started mocking Christianity; she only mentioned her Christian beliefs after the contest was over. A common tactic used by them is to quote various ceremonial laws of the Old Testament to illustrate how absurd using the Bible as a guide is when the issue is the specific passage quoted, which may contain great wisdom. Christians don’t consider the ceremonial laws of the Bible applicable today though the moral laws in it apply.
Homosexuals and their allies tried to dig up dirt on Carrie Jean. They found the following picture, which they extensively promoted as Carrie Prejean’s topless or semi-nude picture. There is nothing unbefitting for a beauty pageant contestant in this picture.
Later the following picture was dug up.
Later still, photos featuring pictures like the following were dug up. Whereas these pictures are not of the erotic variety, the few with the nipples showing violate Miss USA requirements.

Prejean capitalized on the attention by becoming the spokesperson for the National Organization for Marriage, an organization opposed to same-sex marriage. Prejean’s pictures and her promoting the National Organization for Marriage’s campaign on her own initiative brought her close to losing her Miss California title, but Donald Trump allowed her to retain her Miss California title. Trump may have been concerned about the backlash that Prejean was made to lose her title because of her politically incorrect opposition to same-sex marriage, but he made the wrong decision. Carrie lied about having posed nude and when she had posed for them. She should have been fired for her pictures with the nipples showing.
The Carrie Prejean brouhaha brought to light that the Miss California pageant organization had paid for Carrie Prejean’s breast implants. What is this? Women with breast implants, nose jobs or similar surgical enhancements should be banned from beauty pageants just as performance enhancing drugs are banned in sporting events. But here we have the organization managing the event paying for the surgical enhancement! If they want non-overweight contestants with prominent breasts, plenty will be found among feminine women, but the homosexuals have no use for feminine women, as extensively documented in the discussion of beauty pageants at this site. And looking at the pre-implant breasts of Carrie Prejean (see pictures by Dominic Petruzzi above), she didn’t really need implants. If she were feminine, then there would be no need to enhance her breasts to present a more feminine look (see example of a small-breasted woman who looks feminine).
Donald Trump needs to wake up. I told him about Matthew 7:6 two years ago. Giving the holy to dogs or casting pearls before swine is worse than useless. Homosexuals will invent rights they have no claim to, declare opponents hateful bigots just for opposing their undeserved “rights” and make a mockery of mainstream major beauty pageants, which are supposed to cater to the heterosexual public. Donald Trump has the ability to ensure that homosexuals have no influence on beauty pageants catering to the general public.
