Miss California Carrie Prejean expressed an opinion during the April 19 Miss USA contest based on her Christian faith, and it probably cost her a beauty pageant crown, endorsements, fame and fortune.
Prejean, a student at San Diego Christian College, said she saw the question from contest judge Perez Hilton about whether every state should legalize same-sex marriage as a test of her faith.
Prejean replied that she is opposed to gay marriage, and her answer may have cost her the crown. She finished second to Miss North Carolina Kristen Dalton.
