Beauty and the Beast: Resisting the Reactionary Extremism of Perez Hilton
Openly homosexual blogger and Miss USA judge Perez Hilton has called pageant contestant Carrie Prejean the "C-word," defaced a photo of the young lady, and admits to giving her a score of zero, reports WND.
And this from an individual giving public face to those who wrap themselves as victims in banners of "love" and "tolerance." But it is nothing of the sort, of course, as is clearly seen in the emotional outburst of this "judge" who took upon himself also the roles of jury and executioner. Such hubris.
Mr. Hilton apparently hates the reply Prejean gave to his question concerning homosexual "marriage." As Prejean told Sean Hannity last night on TV, she chooses being "Biblically correct" over being politically correct and concludes therefore that marriage ought to be between a man and a woman.
Her view has the advantage of expressing a life lived in community with our true Creator, which is a better foundation for growth and humanness than is reducing ourselves -- as a consistent naturalistic secularism requires -- to bundles of particles organized by chance inside bodies that have no meaning in an impersonal universe. The resulting breakdown of the distinction between male and female is an expression not of progress into love but of regress into meaninglessness.
Her courageous stance places Prejean at the center of political and ethical discourse as framed by the Declaration of Independence, which articulates the Founding vision and mission statement of the United States.
She is occupying the same ontic and philosophical universe set forth by our Founding Fathers. The real extremists are those who reject that Founding vision and indeed reject the world as it objectively exists in its externality as a creation of our Maker who endows humanity with unalienable rights.
The reactionary behavior of Hilton and his association with the Miss USA pageant indicate just how radically extreme and ugly certain intolerant elites have become after rejecting that humane and liberating worldview which gave rise to the American experiment in the first place. They war against nature and nature's God, against human nature and human nature's God.
This war is real. Instead of human rights rooted in a knowable, verifiable, and loving Creator who has a moral character, we have instead aggressive power groups imposing a false, subjective, and hurtful agenda upon a patient and forbearing nation.
Love of God and man, of neighbor and community, calls for a humane resistance for freedom, the individual, and wholeness. Fortunately, we are beginning to see signs of free-thinking individuals rising up to throw off the chains of pretended absolutes masked and marketed as progress, toleration, and positive change.
A 21-year-old held her ground the other night and holds it still. She lost a pageant. But she won a crown.
