Whatever Is In The Heart Will Come Up To The Tongue

Perez HiltonImage via Wikipedia

“Whatever is in the heart will come up to the tongue.” Persian Proverb

Once again free thought and speech have been punished by the radicals who refuse to “tolerate" any who oppose their views. As Carrie Prejean was de-throned as California’s Queen, the queens in Hollywood and the media won a battle, but the war for free thought and speech wages on and is far from over.

Carrie Prejean, who was dethroned as Miss California, may take legal action against pageant officials. Prejean’s lawyer Charles Limandri told The Factor that, contrary to pageant allegations, his client fulfilled all her obligations. “There was never a scheduled appearance that she missed,” Limandri asserted. “She was set up by Keith Lewis of the Miss California pageant, who could not tolerate it when she said marriage should be between a man and a woman. He is a militant gay activist, he is an openly gay man, and he is an ideologue.” The Factor expressed confusion at the entire affair: “You’re saying this all goes back to Miss Prejean’s comment about marriage, and that Mr. Lewis is so angry about her answer that he’s putting his own job in jeopardy.”

Let us step back and recall exactly the “who” and the “why” behind the speech police. I don’t recall a badge being issued to this segment of society giving them the right to silence the majority in favor of the millennial old tradition, marriage between a man and a woman. But Carrie has become the pin up girl who the intolerant homosexual community has demoralized and subsequently removed her rightfully earned crown.

Reflect with me about what occurred on that fateful night of Carrie’s demise. (Taken from an earlier post.)

Hate speech, at its finest, was flamboyantly on parade, bubbling up from the depths of a soulless man. Darkness was brought to life as visceral contempt spewed from the recesses of Perez Hilton's small, malicious heart, toward a young woman, Carrie Prejean, who had done him no wrong.

He has done those who stand on the side of Goodness a service as he so eloquently demonstrated the deep seeded hate that many in his celebrity circle also embody. All one needs to know about his social community and the sewer in which he dwells is to visit his blog site: Warning: Content not suitable for most.

Have we bred a society of animals, whose passions rule their hearts and whose hearts vomit out the wickedness in which it was educated? In the name of tolerance, has America turned a blind eye to what is considered decent social behavior? Where have the true gentlemen gone that once wielded the pen and shared the podium?

G. K. Chesterton stated that, “Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions.” Are the convictions of those who preach tolerance even true to the very definition from which it was derived?

According to Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913), TOL’ERANCE, n. [L. tolerantia, from tolero, to bear.] is: The power or capacity of enduring; or the act of enduring. The endurance of the presence or actions of objectionable persons, or of the expression of offensive opinions; toleration.

Today’s flippant usage has little to do with its origin; yet is indoctrinated into the minds of American children to be of greater importance than even love. No longer is the Golden Rule taught, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”; but rather “Lets all just get along,” regardless of whether one’s peers are demonstrating honorable character traits that build a virtuous society. We no longer press the mandate of chivalry and morals, but rather, America’s youthful society has learned that saying nothing for the “Good,” is being tolerant and merits an “A” in citizenship class. These children are now the adults that run the local news stations, judge Miss America Pageants and work for our Liberal Government.

Edmund Burke is credited with, “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing” and one must ask: where are the men and women standing against evil? They are muzzled due to the fear of hate speech prosecution. They are fearful to offend and be called a bigot. Yet in the name of conviction, Carrie Prejean spoke words which she held to be truth and spoke them poignantly and peaceably while the Perez Hiltons of the Media and Hollywood scream hate speech and profanity. Carrie Prejean demonstrated the capacity of enduring the presence or actions of objectionable persons and their expression of offensive opinions.

One woman expressed her frustration in a letter to the editor of the North County Times. http://Letter to Editor by Nancy Popejoy…:
“I am so tired of being “tolerable” of other people’s opinions, only to have their “tolerance” of me turned into name-calling and throwing stones. I am a bigot if I don’t “agree” with you, a racist if I don’t “agree” with President Barack Obama and a homophobe if I believe a marriage should only be between a man and woman. If my opinion differs from yours, so be it. We are Americans and we all have that right. It is about time the “progressives” show me the same respect and be “tolerable.” The ones who are calling for “tolerance” of their beliefs are at it again with their “my way or the highway” thinking. The uproar over Carrie Prejean in the Miss USA pageant and her answer to a question about gay marriage, her personal beliefs and comment in support of keeping the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman has caused all in support of gay marriage to jump up shouting, “Hang her! She doesn’t agree with us.” Talk about intolerance and hypocrisy. Bigot, narrow-minded, intolerant … who does that sound like?” Nancy Popejoy, Murrieta, California

“We ought always to deal justly, not only with those who are just to us, but likewise to those who endeavor to injure us; and this, for fear lest by rendering them evil for evil, we should fall into the same vice.” (Hierocles).

Justice was dealt on the side of Right behavior this past week as the public spoke out against those who consistently trample moral character in the name of entertainment and protected by tolerance. Evil behavior can only masquerade for so long as “good society” before a shining light brings to evidence who is under the mask. Hollywood can keep going back to costuming for a new undercover look, but America saw through the glitz and one of their own stuck his foot in his filthy mouth and showed us what type of evil lurks under the disguise of tolerance.

So, how would Perez Hilton like it if he was "removed" from being a judge because he is a proponent of homosexual marriage?? He would call that prejudice and discrimination.

These people who attacked Carrie and removed her from her position are bigots - and she should sue. She was discriminated against by prejudiced bigots.

You folks are missing the point, she was fired because she did not want to do the job. Fox, of all people, had a very good and balanced article on this issue, and it was pretty clear that this was a simple matter of Carrie not fulfilling her contract -despite her claims. They even released some rather alarming emails between the parties.

I say this not to bash any person's ideas or opinions, but rather to caution you folks. Blind rage over a perceived insult to an ideology is not the way to handle this issue. Let the facts present themselves before you cast your stones.

Miss USA only releases selective parts of the email. And Lewis was caught lying when he admtited on Greta she did not really missed any appearances. Not the first time he or Moakler or those at MISS USA changed their stories.

A contract runs both ways. Those folks including Lewis did not live up to their own end of the bargain either.

And you want to comment on an article as Fox as to recommend. That is the same author by the way who said she should not be there because of what she answered at the pageant itself in his previous article. Relying on him for your arguments is shaky for you. In fact, folks on that blog responded to him there pointing things out like that.

If being professional is what is required, then how come Lewis did not get fired and Moakler did not get fired for how they handled themselves for weeks on end towards Prejean, even before she got into interviews or the pics got released? How come they got away with releasing confidential info on Prejean? Does the contract allow that? How come Trump is willing to bring back Perez Hilton to be judge next year if his organization is serious about being professional?

The fact of the matter is that Lewis and company created such a hostile working environment for Prejean to work in.

You left out alot of facts.

Those who fired her are the ones throwing stones while living in glasshouses.

On the day that I am writing this, the SC Governor is admitting to an affair. The process for that little drama followed the same ruts in the road that this story is on.

You folks keep coming to the rescue of the poor ideologically pure lambs only to discover their motives were not as pure as we had hoped.

This tragedy seems to be on the repeat, and before we start bashing each other over partisan bickering, let's allow time for the facts to come more into focus.

"You folks keep coming to the rescue of the poor ideologically pure lambs only to discover their motives were not as pure as we had hoped."

And you do the same in regards to those folks who are on your side of the issues. Lewis, Moakler, etc., all got free passes from you on how unprofessionally they behaved for weeks on ends towards one of the contestants.

Here's the deal- Christian conservatives do not claim they live up 100 percent to their own moral standards, since in their own views, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. In other words, none of us live up perfectfully to the moral standards we have but we strive out of desire to please God because of what Christ did for us at the cross.

On the other hand when liberal politicians fall into same sins, their standards are so low to begin with, that they bounce back.

Conservative politicians when they fall usually do not get those chances because they have something many folks on your side don't: shame.

The fact we fall from time to time do not prove our motives are impure. It only proves we are imperfect, sinful human beings.

No big surprise.

You missed the point.

Conservatives have a real problem with people cozying up to them with the Bible in one hand and the American flag in the other. While many are probably genuine believers who perhaps stumble along the way, I would submit that there are others what are just using conservatism as cover for their ambitions.

In an attempt to illustrate my point, I am convinced that from the opposite side of the spectrum Perez Hilton is one of these vile creatures. But in all honesty, it sure feels like this beauty queen is in it for her exposure and pay day, not her beliefs.

It is possible that I am being cynical, but as a veteran of these stories... well the smell coming from that mess is not from anything noble imho.
