Carrie Prejean: the Bible doesn’t say anything about breast implants

wenn5355861

Carrie Prejean’s media tour continues! In this episode, Carrie speaks to Christianity Today about how she’s carrying out God’s plan, and how Jesus thinks plastic boobs are kosher. For real! It’s pretty funny actually, and I guess the best thing I can say about the interview (full article here) is that she didn’t throw a tantrum and act like a petulant child. Also, the Huffington Post points out that she is still playing around with the whole sex tape timeline again when she describes her transfer to a more Jesus-y college. Her boyfriend claims Carrie made the “solo” tape for him when she was 20, while Carrie is still claiming it was just something “dumb“ she did when she was “16 or 17”. Maybe we’ll never know the real story! Here’s some of the highlights of her interview:

On when she traded her depraved teenage behavior for Christianity:
I went to Santa Barbara and I found out that it was a big party school, and I just didn’t seem to fit in. So after I came back, I started going to San Diego Christian College, and that’s where I felt at home…I think that was at a Christian school where it’s cool to study on Friday nights, and you don’t have the pressure of going out and drinking, and you are surrounded by people who have the same interests as you. That was a big turning point in my life, when I started going to the Rock, when I was about 18.

On finding forgiveness for Perez Hilton:
Oh yeah. I actually feel really sorry for him. I really do. If you look at his website, it’s kind of scary what he does.

Does your Christian faith inform your views?
Absolutely. If you read the Bible, it seems like everybody is trying to argue with the truth. It’s in the Bible, and if you believe in the Bible you believe it’s the truth. It starts with Adam and Eve and ends with a wedding.

How do you respond to people who might say you hate gays and lesbians?
People who say I hate gays and lesbians are, in a polite way, ignorant. I think they don’t see that just because someone doesn’t agree with redefining marriage that they hate you—I’ve never said that I hated gays. I have friends who are gay. I have hairdressers who are gay. I live in California—that’s the most liberal state there is. I am not afraid of gays. It’s just a personal opinion. They have an opinion; I have my own opinion. Why is my opinion not valid?

Christian groups have asked you to come to their events and included you in advertisements. Did you ever think these groups were exploiting you for their own ends?
No, I think they embraced what I stood for. People forget that I’m 22 years old. Not many people would have done what I did. Everything was on the line; I’d worked so hard for this goal, and I wasn’t willing to lie, to be politically correct to win the pageant. Regardless of who you are, people are drawn toward that. People are drawn toward a 22-year-old speaking out for what she believes in and being brutally attacked because of it. I don’t think any of these groups are exploiting me. I think they’re embracing the younger generation doing something.

On reconciling her breast implants with her Christian faith:
No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting breast implants as a Christian. I think it’s a personal decision. I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where it says you shouldn’t get breast implants.

Can you comment on the reports that you settled a lawsuit against Miss USA because of sex tapes?
Everything that was discussed in mediation was confidential. There is a video out there of me. I was really young and immature. It was the worst mistake of my life. It was a really stupid, stupid decision that I made. But I take full responsibility for it. Did I think I would ever be a celebrity or that my boyfriend at the time, who I sent it to, would ever blackmail me? No. I think we all make mistakes and we all do things when we’re young that sometimes backfire later in life. I give advice to younger girls in my book because I’ve learned a lot since I was 16 or 17 years old.

Is there anything more to be said about this? No, I think Carrie covered everything. Media = Bad. Breast implants = good. Breast implants that you didn’t have to pay for = even better. Jesus = great. Gay hairdressers = good. Married gay hairdressers = bad. My favorite quote of the whole interview is actually “I wasn’t willing to lie, to be politically correct to win the pageant.” No, but she was perfectly willing to lie after she lost the pageant, and she will continue to lie whenever, however, and as much as she sees fit. This chick is delusional.

Here are more of the “crazy eyes” pictures from Carrie’s speaking engagement at The Family Research Council’s annual ‘Values Voter Summit’ in Washington on September 18, 2009. Credit: WENN.

    I hate when people try to cover up their actions by mentioning the bible and Jesus.

  2. Jazz says:

    Every time I see a picture of this b****, she’s got the crazy bug eyes thing going.

  3. DoMaJoReMc says:

    When will the idiot ever STFU? I cannot understand, for the life of me, why she just keeps on playing this “poor me” card. Every talk she gives she always eludes to the fact that there is some kind of vendetta against her. Well, if she would STOP TALKING there would be nothing left to talk about.

    I cannot think of a more ‘un-Christian’ woman. Own up to your life and all the mistakes that go along with it. Start by not lying about how old you were when you made this jolly-fest.

    UGH!

  4. Firestarter says:

    STFU. STFU. STFU. STFU. STFU. STFU! PLEASE! As your duty to Jesus and God, STFU!

  5. Popcorny says:

    What a convoluted mass of fakery.
    Moron’s trying desperately to hang on to the favour of the right-winged extremists (but it’s gonna be a lil tricky with just one hand).

  6. Kaboom says:

    She’s going to trigger the apocalypse by making Jesus come down and bitch-slap her.

  7. DD says:

    I’m sure a bible thumper could find a verse that would prove breast implants are evil. I’m also pretty sure that the motivations for breast implants being that they are considered sexual parts of the body goes against the puritanical bible where sex is merely for reproduction and not for pleasure. So Carrie you fail yet again.

  8. Mairead says:

    Ok lads. I’m going to admit it, I was wrong. This girl is an absolute hoot! “Implants are ok because the (human) men who wrote the Bible couldn’t concieve of there being the possibility to do that to your body 1600-5000 years ago” “I have gay friends… I even let them wash my hair” :lol:

    Ah no but in seriousness – perhaps she really was about 17/18 when the tape was made. It was an idiotic thing to do, but alas there’re girls younger than that nowadays sending explicit photographs just so some spotty-backed oik will like them. Which to me is tragic. Who says the ex is telling the truth about the timeline. Maybe she did settle down after going to a more Jesusy college. But I still don’t believe for a second that she’s half as socially conservative as she’s making out.

    To be honest after this interview I think she’s actually really pathetic. The “I wasn’t willing to lie, to be politically correct to win the pageant.” comment really stood out to me as well. She wasn’t willing to be PC, but she was willing to be told that her already attractive good looks that God and/or her parents’ genes gave her weren’t good enough and is willing to go through numerous surgeries, including dental, to be fit into a narrowly defined concept of what is pagent-beautiful.

    Because, in the end, it seems that she agreed that a pert rack and banal soundbites is all she had to offer the world.
    SAD.

  9. mollyb says:

    I don’t recall anything in the Bible that says that two gay people can’t be married in a secular service in 2009 America, so I guess she’s not opposed to that either . . .

  10. teehee says:

    I always have the desire to say, when I read the stuff she says, that it is actually quite ‘normal’ to be brought up with such a narrow and rigid thought system when raised as a full-fledged christian. It has become less popular given the increasingly secular slant in school, but I for one attended a lutheran school and everyone was taught to think like that. I mean, it has less to do with “Carrie” herself and more just an outdated and unpopular system of beliefs.
    It really is impossible to make decisions based on teh bible since it doesnt address either the overall general philosophy that one OUGHT to use to make dexcisions in the present day and age, neither does it address specifics that are relevant to our time today.
    IMO christianity is fundamentally bound to cause such behavior and thought because it is a belief system based on judgement/punishment and fear. So people who buy into it adopt the same style and become judgemental, critical, paranoid and exclusivist.
    If God will hate you for ‘doing wrong’ then they cant accept others or things that are labeled ‘wrong’ accoirding to the bible, for fear of God not loving them anymore if they do…
    Its hard to be open minded or flexible if you believe that your god isnt.
    I myself have dropped the christian style long ago and very recently adopted the philosphy as set forth in “Conversations with God”.
    Just sayin LOL

  11. LolaBella says:

    This is one deluded idiot! STFD and STFU!

  12. snowball says:

    I think she lied when she paraded those plastic tatas around and didn’t have a sign stapled to her butt that said they weren’t real. Or when she flashed those fake Chiclet teeth.

    I love how now she loves the gays. Isn’t, “but I have X friends so that doesn’t make me a hater!” passe yet?

    She keeps making the age she made that tape younger and younger. Pretty soon she’s going to be claiming she was twelve, which will open up a whole new can of clams because wouldn’t that make her guilty of making child porn?

    Personally, I believe the boyfriend and I’m sure there’s some way to authenticate how old she was. Just in the photos I’ve seen this morning, actually, she doesn’t look like a young teenager. Slutty, but not 16 or 17.

  13. Anastasia says:

    Honey, next time you spray tan your face, remember not to leave your hands so lily-white.

    And keep up all this blathering because people are so sick of you, I’m hard-pressed to find anyone who is in your corner anymore and I LIVE IN TEXAS.

  14. Ethel says:

    Ah, but what about lying and lewd behavior?

  15. Lee says:

    Thanks for pointing that out Anastasia, I totally missed the white hands; her fingernails match her tan at least, lol! She is so over the top, she is nothing but a caricature of a caricature.

  16. Firestarter says:

    @Anastasia- Actually aren’t the palms of your hands normally white anyway? I know when I am in the sun, I do not tan my palms, but that is just me.

  17. Green Is Good says:

    Carrie, stop dragging God’s good name into you hypocritical attempt to sell BOOKS. Your hubris borders on sociopathic.

  18. Jag says:

    Kaiser, your final paragraph says it all. (thumbs up)

    Kaboom, bravo to your “She’s going to trigger the apocalypse by making Jesus come down and bitch-slap her.” lol

  19. OXA says:

    Can she shut up, go away and take her lies and falsies with her.

  20. nj says:

    People like this make all Christians and Catholics look crazy and intolerant. And we’re not. We are taught that the Gospel is the word of God but the Bible was written 2 thousand years ago by men. It is not always meant to be taken literally.

  21. Eileen Yover says:

    Seriously Kaiser: That last picture you post of her is the stuff from nightmares!! It freaks me out everytime I see it! She looks like a rabid over-processed chipmunk!

  22. AbbeyRoad says:

    Okay – the Christianity thing. We have a lot of different kinds of “Christians” in our culture to look at. We have CrazyPants variety (i.e. Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist church) we have fun examples like Prejean, Palin, and friends, and then we have all the relatively chill church-goers that you don’t hear much about. And this is coming from a former Christian, turned agnostic, just to give you context. I don’t hate Christians, I just don’t agree with them anymore. I no longer believe that Jesus Christ was the son of god, that he died for the sins of the world, and was resurrected. That’s what being a Christian means, at least on the most basic level. I mean, you’re SUPPOSED to take it beyond that and practice selflessness, humbleness, etc., but Miss Prejean isn’t the only one who doesn’t.

    There are parts of the bible that speak to vanity and sexual perversity. That’s pretty broad—if you go Old Testament, anybody who’s every masturbated alone, in a room, with NO camera, is perverse. But she’s quite right that nowhere in the bible are breast implants mentioned. Neither are beauty pageants. Neither has anything to do with how “moral” a person is or isn’t. It’s unfortunate that people are calling in to question Carrie’s beliefs and citing the tape, the pageant, the pictures, and the implants as their reasons. That’s not a logical argument, although it is the one she hopes people will keep making, as it allows to her to continue making appearances and defending herself as she did in this instance.

    She’d have a harder time defending herself if the focus were on things like slander, hypocrisy, lying, and selfishness. The Jesus I grew up being taught about would have a WAY harder time dealing with those things than the ones people are focusing on. The tape and the beauty pageant and the breast implants are all things she did. The consistent slander, hypocrisy, dishonesty, and martyr complex are far more serious, because they’re the things that are truly indicative of her character.

    It’s unfair to say she’s not a Christian, because there’s no way for any of us to read her mind. But I think it’s valid to cite her behavior in RESPONSE to the criticism she’s getting as evidence that she’s a bad example of what Christians are supposed to be. She’s the kind who picks and chooses the parts of the bible that work for her. Unfortunately, there seem to be lots of those people. But technically, as long as they believe in The Jesus, they’re still Christians.

  23. prettytarheelfan says:

    DD-The Bible does not say sex is only for reproduction. Sex, becoming one flesh, is the physical incarnation of the marriage union-which is representative of the joining of the Church with Jesus Christ in a marriage ceremony. Sex is supposed to be a joyful, loving, ecstatic embrace between husband and wife.

    With regard to the bug-eyed blonde…She is a great illustration of why many moderate Christians find themselves leaning further and further away from traditional political parties. I can’t go too far left, but I do not want to be associated with people like her. I’m going to go live in a hut and be a libertarian in private.

  24. gg says:

    @ DD, who said “I’m also pretty sure that the motivations for breast implants being that they are considered sexual parts of the body …”

    I totally agree. But you go on, ” … goes against the puritanical bible where sex is merely for reproduction and not for pleasure.”

    WTF? WRONG. Which “puritanical bible” are you refering to?

  25. Ev says:

    Oh yeah, the Bible is just chockful of indifference and ambiguity on the subject of vanity and pride.

    Look, you want big boobs, that’s fine. But don’t try to convince yourself, much less anyone else, that shoving saline sacks in what should be a temple of God to seduce and entice is not in complete deviance of everything the Old and New Testaments taught.

    And if an agnostic former-Protestant knows more about your holy book than you do, that’s pretty effed.

  26. Rosanna says:

    I like Carrie Prejean. I like her even more because who dissents with her can’t make a rational argument other than “STFU”.
    You’re free not to believe in the Bible and think that gay marriage is “right”. She’s equally free to believe in the Bible and think that gay marriage is “not right”. Is it so hard to understand, ladies????

  27. AlaskaJoey says:

    Pretty sure implants would fall under the whole “vanity is bad” thing, and that paying more attention to your physical form than your soul is also bad.

    And Carrie, you can have whatever opinion you want. However, when you start trying to force your opinion to become law, when you prevent people from living their lives the way they want to, just because you don’t agree with how they live their lives, that’s where the problem starts.

  28. Oh My says:

    Herein lies the rub with big C “Christians”:

    “I think that was at a Christian school where it’s cool to study on Friday nights, and you don’t have the pressure of going out and drinking, and you are surrounded by people who have the same interests as you.”

    Translation: It’s hard for us to behave/abstain from sin unless we are surrounded by those who don’t do the things we consider sinful. To achieve and maintain our own superior level of “Christian wholesomeness” we must make sure everyone else is prohibited and/or punished severely for doing the things we really want to do so we don’t just join in ourselves.

  29. Eileen Yover says:

    Rosanna-the reason why the only answer you hear is “STFU” is because her opinions are so hypocritical its ridiculous. This is exactly why I quit the Baptist church. Every single person I was ever exposed to that was “religious” “holy” and whatever else were they most judgemental, talk behind your back, spiteful people I ever met. And this spans from age 7 all the way to today.
    Every answer she gives on these interviews, she takes quotes from the bible that she wants to take to make her opinions right, but then when you ask her about her actions that are sinful, she either tells you your inappropriate or she makes some crap up. Uh no Carrie, the bible doesn’t say “Thou shall not get breast implants” but Vanity is one of the seven sins of man. Judging someone else’s lifestyle is also a sin. So what if she doesn’t think gay marriage should be valid. She’s a 22 year old beauty pagent contestant. So yes “STFU Carrie and go finish bedazzling your pagent gown.”
    And FYI, I think breast implants are fine, plastic yourself up. But don’t sit down and judge people for what they do when you’re masturbating on tape and getting plastic surgery. Ref’ingdiculous.

  30. AbbeyRoad says:

    @Rosanna – of course she’s free to have that opinion, and whatever else I think of her, I did have big problem with the response to what she initially said at the pageant. She answered the question honestly, which is what she was supposed to do. I’m for gay marriage, but just as I’m grateful that I have complete freedom to express my opnions, it’s very important that someone on the other side of the issue can do that as well. We’re allowed to do that in the US. It’s important for us to do so.

    I think the problem that a lot of people are having is with her inconsistencies. She doesn’t own up to having broken contract with the pageant organizers. (Which is why she was eventually fired.) She does not admit that her correspondence with the people trying to get her to do her job was rude and dismissive. She does not prepare for debates well. She continues to behave as though she’s being persecuted for a belief–and while it looked that way at first, she is seriously twisting reality if she claims that her sex tape was brought out BECAUSE she believes marriage is between a man and a woman. The tape has nothing to do what she originally said, and no belief of any kind justifies breaking contract. Other pageant winners who don’t publicly subscribe to Christianity have been fired for the same thing, and they haven’t been given second chances by Donald Trump.

    If she wants to back up her arguments by using the bible, that’s certainly up to her — but she seems not to have encountered any of the NUMEROUS verses about humility.

  31. LolaBella says:

    @Eileen Yover: Well said.

  32. mockey says:

    I hate this bitch!!!!!! I hate this bitch!!!! I don’t even want to explain why

  33. Satan says:

    She is famous for being stupid. I’ll bet her parents are proud.

  34. Moog says:

    Hmm, what about

    Leviticus 19:28
    “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

    1 Timothy 2:9-10
    In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

  35. daisy says:

    Rosanne,Im glad there is at least 1 post that kinda defends her beleifs.She is for sure a idiot,and she makes herself sound like a moron,but,having said that,not everyone thinks gays should marry.Even though it does not seem like it because hollywood and the media are so libral,I think around 1/2 of our country is still conservative and at least agree w/ that beleif.Other than that they should stop giving her attention.Im not reading on more post about her

  36. ogie says:

    i can think of two places in the Bible that covers that.

    1 Corinthians 3
    16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
    17 “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”

    And… Thou Shalt not Covet their neighbors goods.

  37. just me says:

    I agree with her on the Perez Hilton comment tho. That guy is disgusting.

  38. original kate says:

    i love that every tabloid uses this photo – hilarious!

  39. Cakes says:

    There are various passages in the bible that state that you cannot tattoo yourself or par take in any “bodily harm”. What I gatherd from that was I cannot alter my body in anyway (plastic surgery), or abuse alcohol and drugs. I cant remember which part specifically but Im sure its in the book of proverbs and in the new testament.
    Once again a “christian” is manipulating the bible for their own purposes. I understand that you cant live your life based on every single rule laid out in the bible, but im sure god and Jesus are frowing upon the manipulation of their word by their supposed devout and faithful followers.

  40. Aphrodite says:

    We need to acknowledge strong women who don’t rely on horrid fairy tales to guide their life choices. Have you ever read in the new testament how they treat women, truly a disgusting book. Anyone who says they receive their morals and guidance from that book hasn’t read all of it and is merely cherry picking or just accepting what they were told by their parents or oracles as truth.

  41. Dee says:

    OMG – will everybody do something else that actually will be constructive and helpful to your fellow humans and the planet??? I don’t care what she did or does…..is that not between “GOD and HER??” And from my experience being around religious/christians – they often have their own “Self Imposed Nonsense – ie – SIN.”
    But it personally disturbs me – just because she is yet another woman that makes women look stupid…

  42. gg says:

    @ Ev – I never disagreed with the implants going against the Bible.

    Just please show me where the it says that sex is only for procreation and nothing else. Because that was what I was commenting on when I said that was not true. So show me.

  43. billymeade says:

    1.) A lot of posts claim Carrie is being “hypocritical”… with no backup. Example please?

    2.) She never said she made her tape when she was 17. She said that she’s learned from dumb mistakes she’s made since that time. Reading comprehension is fun!

    3.) Nobody cares if you left a religion, get over yourself.

  44. billymeade says:

    I love that the same people here who are so proud about not being religious are so eager to quote the bible.

    That’s akin to me preaching about nuclear physics.

  45. Popcorny says:

    No it’s not, Billymeade.
    You can be well versed in or on the bible, gone through the rote and the rites -and not be religious at all.

  46. Carena says:

    I think she’s lying about being 16 or 17 when she made the tape because if anyone were now to release it, they would be charged with child pornography. So she is basically guaranteeing that it won’t get released.

  47. gg says:

    Popcorny, but that’s usually not the case is it? Or do you believe everybody on here who dislikes religion so much is a bible scholar? Why would they be, is everybody studying theology on this gossipboard? :?: If Carrie wants to misinterpret her bible, let her. But do not throw us all into the same pot.

  48. jayem says:

    LMFAO!!! Kaboom – You just made my day.

  49. ViktoryGin says:

    The central issue here is that she is repeatedly taking to religious posturing and GETTING PAID FOR IT when she has no credibility. The human condition is so much more complex and varied than the human proclivity to force ourselves and other people into living by a set labels that it is human nature to defy. There will alway be Christians who are not going to fit into the schema of Christianity’s prescribed dogma just as there are going to be liberals who are given to conservatism but will scarcely admit it. Ideals are called that for the reason that any theoretical system is always conceived in a space where there are no flaws. Humans, however, are not this way. The problem arises when one forsakes his humility, and the the substance of his gospel becomes religious grandstanding and judgment. Prejean has done just this, and no one wants to hear proselytizing from anyone much less a person whom people perceive to be morally equivocal.

    And on a side note: People can VERY much partake of objective study of a holy book. What do you think people do in religious studies classes? Just because one studies the Koran does make him Muslim.

  50. meglet says:

    confusion…

    Is marriage actually considered a ‘religous’ based thing in America? It’s essentially just a contract that both parties sign.. and you can choose for it to have zero to do with religion in Australia. I assume it would be about the same in America? So where does this chick get off constantly referring to the bible, her god etc, in a discussion that for many people probably has nothing to do with religion. Most marriages in Australia are non-religious according to an article I read the other day, so how can religion have a say in this? This post is clearly mostly Australian based as we’re having the same arguements over here at the moment. Yes Carrie, every person is entitled to their opinion, that includes all the gay men and women that want to legally bind their relationship and perhaps have a nice ceremony. Their opinion is equal to yours, Carrie.

    Oh and this is the opinion of a young, straight female, who attended Christian schools from the age 4-18.

  51. princess pea says:

    It starts with Adam and Eve and ends with a wedding.

    She makes the Bible sound like a Harlequin. Which, if it were, would be a better fit for her masturbating, plastic video-tape style of believin’.

  52. mary says:

    from the book of deuteronomy:

    “a marriage will not be considered valid unless the woman is a vigin. if she is not virgin, she will be put to death.”

    let’s hope she tries to get married….

  53. ViktoryGin says:

    @ Meglet

    I’m from Texas, and despite that MANY people who consider themselves Christian here are in violation of the sacrosanct laws by which they judge others, many pick and choose what they and/or their community finds particularly vile. I speak only from my personal experiences as a citizen of a socially conservative state. They make concessions for premarital sex (though officially they will say that don’t), but completely villify homosexuality. The point I’m making is this: they were not particularly concerned about marriage acting as a LEGALLY HOLY institution until those with alternative lifestyles started to demand their rights. So, in short, in the States marriage is only relgious for some when it’s convenient. Much like Prejean…Christianity SEEMS to be convenient for her when she intends for the rest of the world to watch. I wouldn’t mind the inconsistencies if she would just keep her mouth shut and spare us her diatribes.

  54. Cam says:

    hmmm the bible doesn’t mention breast implants, but given the bibe pre-dates breast implants that was never gonna happen. HOWEVER, it DOES mention modesty… which breast implants aren’t (and the biblical meaning behind ‘treating one’s body as one’s temple’ probably isn’t ‘silicon gel storage facility’ either), and sex tape definitely isn’t… so i guess she’s just gonna have to burn in hell with the rest of us after all.

    yet another dumb republican abusing a major world religion to justify their own warped values. it’s like watching dubya but with fluttering eyelashes.
