Carrie Prejean: Not a hypocrite

As one of the weapons in its arsenal against Carrie Prejean, the attack media has dug up the fact that both her parents, during their obviously rancorous divorce, hurled charges at the other regarding homosexuality, and now another paper alleges that Prejean’s mother walked away from a lesbian affair.  No magazine has yet claimed that Prejean herself has been involved in a lesbian affair.  The implication of all these reports, of course, is that Prejean, with her background, is a gross hypocrite for daring to state politely that she favored traditional marriage.

Aside from the fact that Prejean is (so far as we know) not herself a lesbian nor is she married, so she cannot be deemed a hypocrite for preventing others from living a life she herself enjoys, there is nothing hypocritical about gays supporting civil unions without supporting the cultural sea change of gay marriage.  There is nothing inherently hypocritical in being gay, or having friends who are gay, but still have a reasoned, principle opposition to changing the age-old, religiously charged institution of male/female marriage.

    In fact, Book, I would carry it still further…if these charges about her parents’ dysfunctional relationship and values are true, then it makes Carrie Prejean an excellent witness and and advocate for the position that traditional marriage values are to be extolled over and in contrast to her parents’ self-destructive “non-traditional” relationship.

    Precisely, Bookie.

    Another issue overlooked is that Carrie Prejean, is a woman with her own opinions. Why the media feels it is entitled to rummage through her personal life and draw her parents into the fray to make its own agenda headline news is the real matter.

    Anyone who doesn’t tow the liberal line is subject to all the ugliness the human race has to offer in the guise of ‘investigative journalism’ instead of what it really is – gossip!

    As always, the libs attack the individual rather than discuss the issues.

    Book, you simply do not understand. It is impossible for a DemoLib to be a hypocrite. By definition they are brighter, more moral, more open-minded, more virtuous, more honest etc. than the knuckle-draggers on the other side of the fence. As DemoLibs’ superiority is complete, through and through they cannot appear to be, as hypocrites are. The knuckle-draggers on the other side of the fence are the hypocrites. Compared to the DemoLibs, they are more stupid, ignorant, bigoted, immoral…. but try to appear to be as good as the DemoLibs. The ultimate hypocrites!

    Another thought is that many leftists are relativists—they simply don’t believe in Truth with a capital T or acknowledge any superior morality. So for them personally there is no such thing as hypocrisy because hypocrisy implies betrayal of an ideal.

    When your only ideal is how much power you can exercise over others, hypocrisy on your own part is not a betrayal but is rather a service you do on behalf of your desire for power.

    But people who believe in Truth with a capital T can be berated, defamed and mocked because they actually believe that s**t about ideals and objective morality. If I’m a chronic boozer and adulterer who finds nothing wrong about my conduct, I’m still going to guffaw and enjoy the agony of somebody who does find those behaviors wrong but has succumbed to them.

    I get double reinforcement when I do: 1.) That it’s silly to try to make adultery or boozing a moral issue and 2.) that it’s fun to watch people who do think it’s a moral issue prove how stupid and blind they are—thus, Gringo’s description of the left’s view of people like us.

    Well said, Danny.

    The Demoncrats have been trained and bred to be attack dogs. However, they have become a bit too rabid and must be put down, for the good of us all.

    It’s the psychological torture cage the Left likes to use. They don’t dislike torture, they love it.

    I guarantee you that the Left has inflicted, intentionally, more emotional and physical stress on Prejean than they have ever inflicted, directly or indirectly, on terrorists, mass murderers, rapists, child molestors, or tax fraud cheats.

    And I guarantee you that whatever the Left or their terrorist buddies can inflict in terms of psychological or physical duress, I can do better by a few orders of magnitude.
