Just A Thought...

By now everybody has heard about Miss California's response to a question about gay marriage at the Miss USA pageant. All she said was the following:

"We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."
Whether or not you agree with gay marriage, my question is this: Perez Hilton has an opinion on gay marriage and nobody has a problem. But Miss California has an opinion and she's ripped to shreds over it. Why is it that one person is allowed to have an opinion on a political issue and the other person isn't?
