The young lady pictured at left - see below portion of article from Fox News Online - has dared to speak out against gay marriage.
Miss Beverly Hills and upcoming Miss California contender Lauren Ashley spoke out to Pop Tarts earlier this week against gay marriage -- and as a result she has been publicly condemned by the City of Beverly Hills.
"The City of Beverly Hills today denounced statements made by Miss California USA contestant Lauren Ashley, the self-described Miss Beverly Hills. Ms. Ashley resides in Pasadena and is currently a contestant for the Miss California USA title. She does not represent Beverly Hills in any capacity," the city said in a news release issued Wednesday. "The City of Beverly Hills strongly condemns Ms. Ashley's recent statements and has contacted pageant officials to determine ways to formally prevent any beauty contestants claiming the title of Miss Beverly Hills in the future."
I see California still stands four-square against Free Speech. It seems that speech, in the land of oranges and sunshine, is only free if one agrees with the Powers That Be. Personally, I don't care who marries whom - if they at least keep in within the same species.
