Well, I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other. We live in a land where 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 marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense to anybody out there. But that’s how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman.
The answer received her a nationwide attention where she received several negative comments. Later, Prejean told the Miss California USA pageant officials told her "she need[ed] to not talk about her faith" and forced her to apologize for her statement.
