Carrie Prejean, formerly Miss California before being stripped of her crown for failing to meet pageant commitments, continues to be a darling among conservatives for her anti-gay marriage stance. She gave a rambling speech Thursday at the Family Research Council's "Values Voters Summit" in which she repeatedly invoked God, saying her answer on gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant "was a moment to stick up for Him and for the truth."
Towards the end of the speech Prejean began crying as she stated "even though I didn't win the crown that night, I know that the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in heaven for me."
She also said without a hint of irony: "I'm not really into politics, at least I wasn't at the time. But now I have a new outlook on this. And I am disgusted at the way some people can be so intolerant. It disgusts me."
