Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley Wants Gays Put to Death (Updated)
Via ThinkProgress comes another story of a blonde, California beauty queen speaking out about her hatred of gays a la Carrie Prejean.
This time, the vitriol is coming from a teenager with a porn star name, Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley. Ashley is vying to hold the same Miss California crown once held by Prejean (before it was yanked away because of “contract violations” – the nude photos, fake boobs, and hatred of a portion of the population was OK with officials, apparently).
Ashley is going one step further than Prejean, however, who said she didn’t believe in gay marriage. No, she thinks that they should just die: “The Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman. In Leviticus it says, ‘If man lies with mankind as he would lie with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death and their blood shall be upon them.’ The Bible is pretty black and white.”
Of course, she used the time-honored justification of bigots everywhere, telling Fox News (where else) that she has a lot of friends who are gay. I’m guessing they’re not close friends, though, since she’s apparently just waiting out the minutes until God offs them.
Prejean got all the way to the Miss USA pageant before going public with her views. Here’s hoping that by spewing all this anti-gay stuff early on, Ashley has damned her chances.
