God and Satan Battled Over Carrie

Timothy Kincaid

May 11th, 2009

Carrie Prejean\’s pastor thought she was like Esther, who risked her life to save the Jewish people. Now Carrie thinks that she\’s the center of attention for both God and Satan.

“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.”

Oh good heavens.

Personally? It smells like she’s adding details after the fact. I’ve seen the video of her answering, and there was no sign of hesitation or anything that would indicate a wavering decision. It seemed more like a knee jerk reaction to me.

Well, she got the question beforehand. All contestants do. So it’s not like she had anything to hesitate about really.

This is just awesome. All this is really going to her head. And if she’s playing them for the attention, well, she sure knows how.

Yes, because God and Satan have nothing better to do than worry about a California beauty queen…

It was just a thought in her head. She probably hadn’t had one of those in awhile.

If God is infallible, omniscient, all-powerful, etc., then wouldn’t he ALWAYS win anyway?!

“You know what?” Being an anti-gay beauty queen worked out real well for Anita Bryant. Maybe we should encourage her to keep this issue going!
