Get Your Verses Straight, Girl!

27 Feb

Queerty reports on the newest Californian beauty queen who has an issue with the gays because it’s forbidden within “our religion Christianity” (I’m assuming that’s the royal we, by the way, since the las time I checked, the beauty pageant industry wasn’t religiously affiliated). Only problem is, self-proclaimed Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley can’t quote the verse, though she confidently tells her NBC interviewer that it’s in Leviticus (18:22, honey, in case you’re interested). Watch her make a fool of herself here.

(I’d love to post the actual video, but alas, WordPress doesn’t allow me to embed Flash videos).

You can, however, watch ABC’s more conservative coverage of the controversy right here (make sure to watch all the way to the end–there’s some great footage of the news anchor blocking the way of a city bus):

I think all Lauren Ashley needs is a to-do list:

  1. Tone up those arms.
  2. Take it easy with the eyeliner. (This is not RuPaul’s Drag Race, and if it were, you wouldn’t get too far anyway!)
  3. Go to Bible Study.
  4. Check in with the God of the Old Testament and see how he feels about the Swimsuit Competition.
