Ms. Beverly Hills 2010 Says That Homosexuals Should Be Killed...Because God Said So.


Lauren Ashley, self-proclaimed Miss Beverly Hill 2010, is picking up where Carrie Prejean left off in vocalizing her strong views on homosexuality. Ashley, who will be competing in November's Miss California pageant, spoke with Fox News on the subject:

"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..."

"I feel like God himself created mankind and he loves everyone, and he has the best for everyone. If he says that having sex with someone of your same gender is going to bring death upon you, that's a pretty stern warning, and he knows more than we do about life."

The LA Times reports that the city of Beverly Hills was quick to disavow Miss Ashley:

In a statement Wednesday, the city said it was shocked by Ashley's description of herself as "Miss Beverly Hills." The city "does not sponsor a beauty pageant and has no association with Miss California USA," the statement said. "As such, there should be no individual claiming the title of Miss Beverly Hills."

The city's statement said Ashley lives in Pasadena and "does not represent Beverly Hills in any capacity."

High scores are all but guaranteed for personality, we will have wait to see how she scores in evening wear.

Upon further questioning regarding her statements, Ashley snapped back,"Because GAWD said so! That's why!"

for crying out loud guys, there's no lack of ugly stupid people in the world.

Her looks have nothing to do with her opinion, the only issue here is that through the beauty pageant she has a public platform.

Completely agree with you, B. Just because so pretty person won a comp judged by perverted freaks does not mean that we have to listen to them. We can judge their claims, look at their evidence and then make a decision but we do not have to listen to her and her claims. I have real problems with homophobics.

In this case, there is no lack of beautiful stupid people. Looks is not everything.

Well, I live in Pasadena and she certainly doesn't represent US....Beverly Hills doesn't want her....anyone else? She's up for grabs, so to speak.

Anyone else of opinion that even she doesn't necessarilly believe what she said? I think she saw how much attention that other air-head got, and figured she'd get in on the act.

I agree, Eric. But I doubt that half of public figures every really espouse the controversial ideas that they espouse. Unfortunately, it still stirs up the masses just as much as if she really believed it.
