Tell me your opinion ...,. Only if it's politically Correct

I am talking about the Miss USA Pageant. I personally did not watch it but have read about the Miss California / Perez Hilton question in the news and I am very irked! Here is the question and answer.
Perez Hilton: "Vermont recently became the 4th state to legalize same-sex marriage, do you think every state should follow suit, why or why not?"
Carrie Prejean, Miss CA: "I think it's great Americans are able to choose one or the other," she said. "We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what in my country, in my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be, between a man and a woman."
Here is PH's comments after the show.
I was floored," Hilton told Monday. "I haven't said this before, but to her credit, I applaud her for her honesty. However, she is not a politician, she's a hopeful Miss USA. Miss USA should represent everyone. Her answer alienated millions of gay and lesbian Americans, their families and their supporters."
This is after he called her a "b ----" on his blog. Then he continued on his rant and ended it with this: "I would have gone up on stage, I s--- you not, and snatched that tiara off her head and run out the door," he said in his video blog. "I would probably have been arrested. But so be it."
I love closed minded people! You are entitled to your opinion but only if it makes me happy! He must have forgot that his question said "do you think". I don't care what the question or answer was, if you are going to ask "what do you think" it is an opinion question and you should allow the other person to answer it honestly without chiding them for their opinion.
Phewwww .... so glad I got that off my chest!!!!
