Miss California to campaign against gay marriage

Carrie Prejean, Miss California has gone to Washington to help launch a campaign opposing same-sex marriage.

This morning on NBC's "Today" show, she stated that she'll be working with the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to "protect traditional marriages."

The National Organization for Marriage is the organization responsible for the 'storm' commercials. (previous story)

Miss California said marriage is "something that is very dear to my heart" and she's in Washington to help save it.

Prejean was named the first runner-up to Miss North Carolina in the Miss USA pageant April 19. Her response to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton's question about legalizing same-sex marriage may have cost her the title.

Speaking of Perez Hilton..... his response to her answer about gay marriage was a disgrace to the marriage equality movement, as well as the gay rights movement. You do not call someone a 'dumb b_tch' and make obscene gestures toward them because you do not agree with their answer. This is a total lack of poise, tact, and professionalism.

Americans (as well as the judges) made their own decision about Miss California when she answered the question presented to her about gay marriage..... We can disagree with her, not vote for her, but we do not post a video clip flipping her off and call her a 'dumb b_tch'. This crossed a line that you simply do not cross, especially if you consider yourself a celebrity blogger 'activist' for the marriage equality movement like Mr. Hilton does.

PlanetOut issued a survey, "Does Perez Hilton speak for you?" with more than 88% voting that Hilton does more harm to the gay rights movement than good.

LGBTI bloggers have been slamming Mr. Hilton for his response; watch it below (be sure to read the PlanetOut article above):
