Carrie-ing on: Prejean and her legal NOMinee head to court

by Jeremy Hooper

limandriAttorney Charles LiMandri serves as the general counsel for the National Organization For Marriage. He is also on record as calling same-sex unions "societal suicide" and saying that the "destruction of the concept of gender is perhaps Satan's greatest accomplishment." So naturally, Mr. LiMandri is now representing former Miss California (and NOM spokesmodel) Carrie Prejean in her lawsuit against those big, bad gay activists who wanted her out:

RANCHO SANTA FE, CA - Carrie Prejean’s attorney, Charles S. LiMandri announced today that the former Miss California USA is filing a complaint in the Superior Court of California against Miss California USA officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, and publicist Roger Neal. The complaint cites damages to Miss Prejean including libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

So Carrie's NOM's connections continue, as she leaves her past beauty pageant days behind her in order to be a professional example of how to turn a wrong answer about wronging gays into some weird kind of conservative martyrdom. And how did we find out about this latest development? Well, that would be from the Twitter feed of Mary Beth Hutchins, who also handles public relations for -- wait for it, wait for it -- the National Organization for Marriage.

It's all connected, folks. And it all wants to stop "Satan" from accomplishing his fair-minded goals.

Your thoughts

".. saying that the 'destruction of the concept of gender is perhaps Satan's greatest accomplishment.'"

These guys need a new script. It wasn't five years ago that the collective brain-trust of the christotacracy were still spouting their claim that satan's greatest accomplishment was in "convincing" (as if entities that exist only as the mental farts of morons can actually engage in the act of convincing anyone of anything)... "convincing" people that he doesn't exist. So, that brilliant line of reasoning didn't work the first time, and now they are "hippin'" it us a bit to use it to demonize us.

One would think that from a bunch that likes to consider themselves to be "creationists", that they would try harder convince others that their "creator" is able to come up with better copy - or at least non-plagiarized, original copy.

The complaint cites damages to Miss Prejean including libel that she was wholeheartedly willing to inflict on gay families (and still is), but is unwilling to accept from others against little ole her. Religious discrimination is the biggest joke of all. Progressive minds have finally begun to stand up to churches and their history of discrimination. Now that the tables have turned, it is being called religious discrimination. Wow!!!! Churches have become the new victims overnight. Traditional marriage (between a man and a woman) is traditional because the church has traditionally stepped all over the rights of minorities in this country including the African American community who was not allowed to marry into a white family for fear that God would destroy the earth. Good grief!!! This new religious victimhood is as fresh as a recently released pile of cow manure. It will go nowhere fast!!!!

The only thing more discouraging than Miss Prejean is the lawyer that swept this complaint up off of the floor, glued the nasty pieces together and called it a days work. You can wipe the dirt off of this tacky suit, but you will never be able to get that false smell of victimhood out.

Let me get this straight (no pun intended). If you use religion as your source for discrimination it is called proselytizing. If you use secular thought processes it is called libel, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional stress. Let's just twist logic and hope that no one will see our slight of hand.

This has nothing at all to do with Miss Prejean and everything in the world to do with the slandering of any representative of the National Organization For Marriage which just so happens to be Miss Prejean.
