Guess who fired Miss California: Gay Activist

“This is one of the most rude individuals I have ever had the displeasure of working with in my entire 28-year career in public relations. She was rude. She was obnoxious. She’s a liar, and she’s not a nice person. … There’s nothing ‘Christian’ about her.”
Such was the description to WND of recently fired Miss California Carrie Prejean by a spokesman representing Keith Lewis, producer of Miss California USA.
Publicist Roger Neal said the beauty queen refused to work with the pageant to attend scheduled events, so they kicked her out.
But Prejean’s attorney, Charles Limandri, sees it another way.
In an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, he said the head of the Miss California USA pageant is an open homosexual who does not approve of Prejean’s opposition to same-sex marriage – and that is the real reason he terminated her contract.
“He’s a militant gay activist who did a movie promoting same-sex marriage,” Limandri said. “This issue is very near and dear to his heart.”
O’Reilly asked, “Is he gay?”
Limandri responded, “He’s an openly gay man who did actually produce a movie in support of same-sex marriage. Since you’re asking me, I am telling you: He’s an ideologue, and he’s not going to tolerate someone with that viewpoint wearing a crown and sash. That’s what you see happening here.”
Lewis, the man who fired Prejean, openly admitted to being homosexual in a May 1 interview with Reuters.
He is executive producer of a same-sex marriage movie titled “For the Bible Tells Me So.” In the film, producers attempt to discredit biblical teachings concerning homosexuality.
The 2007 movie introduces its viewers to five self-professed “Christian” families, each with a homosexual child.
“Can the love between two people ever be an abomination?” the film synopsis asks. “Is the chasm separating gays and lesbians and Christianity too wide to cross? Is the Bible an excuse to hate?”
The film website claims the movie will offer “healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.”
Asked if the viewpoint expressed in the film “For the Bible Tells Me So” is reflective of a deep-seated pro-homosexual position that might have influenced Lewis’ decision to fire Prejean, Neal said, “Lewis is not an activist like that. He’s got two grown children. As far as his sexual preference, that’s really a question you’d have to ask him.”
Then when WND asked to speak directly with Lewis, Neal interrupted, “What they are trying to do is sidetrack the issue. She was fired because she violated her contract with Miss California USA. … She didn’t want to work. She didn’t want to do her job. She only wanted to do things that she wanted to do. That’s why she was fired.”
Prejean’s attorney, Charles Limandri, told WND he can prove she attended many events and never violated her contract.
He also asked, “How can Lewis not be a gay rights activist when he is an executive producer of this movie? Give me a break.” Limandri said that when Prejean answered Miss USA pageant question in favor of traditional marriage, her mother texted Keith Lewis, asking, “Is that going to cost her the crown?”
“He wrote back and said, ‘There are three gay judges,'” Limandri said.
Following the event Lewis said he was “deeply saddened and hurt” by Prejean’s stance on same-sex marriage and that “politics and religion have no play in the Miss California family.”
Prejean claims Lewis requested that she make numerous inappropriate appearances, including posing for Playboy and attending a homosexual movie premiere against her wishes.
“He actually said he wanted me to wear a hat and go in disguise and attend this movie premiere promoting gay marriage and then come out with a statement the next day saying that Carrie Prejean attended a gay movie premiere,” she told Larry King. “It just doesn’t seem right …”
Her attorney added, “When she declined that, he wrote her off.”
Asked about the homosexual movie premiere, Neal said, “I don’t know that to be true because I have never heard about that. … What they’re trying to do right now is sensationalize everything because she’s writing a book.”
He continued, “She turned down Playboy, which is her prerogative, but the pageant didn’t ask her to do it. The pageant simply passed everything by her. All of the sudden she’s offended. She is a very mean-spirited woman. She is not a nice person. There is nothing ‘Christian’ about her.”
