Dethroned Miss California Carrie Prejean to Florida Young Republicans: I’m ‘sick and tired of being called a bigot’

Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean says losing the Miss USA pageant and later her state crown was part of God's plan.

Prejean also told a group of young voters at a Republican Party of Florida event Saturday that she was "sick and tired of being called a bigot."

She believes she lost her title because of her opposition to gay marriage. California pageant executive director Keith Lewis has said that Prejean was skipping Miss California USA events while speaking out against gay marriage at unsanctioned appearances.

Prejean says she knows God wanted something different for her than a materialistic crown. She says she is now able to travel the country and speak about issues that she is passionate about.

Love the religious bigot, hate the religious bigotry.

What a narcissistic buffoon. She's not even talented enough to be the next Anita Bryant.

I could punch Perez Hilton in the throat for having created this monster.
