No Offense, But...

Miss USA runner-up, Carrie Prejean, thinks this qualifier makes it ok to discriminate.
"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."
PS- Who says 'opposite marriage?' And yes, I realize Obama has echoed Prejean's views while campaigning which begs the question, will a presidential candidate ever be able to fully support gay marriage and win?
