From the Washington Times"Every week, we tell our congregation to do something bold, and here she did it on the biggest stage in the world," said Mr. McPherson [Carrie's Pastor], a former San Diego Chargers football player who founded the evangelical megachurch. "It's about standing up for faith in the face of persecution. A lot of people are intimidated about saying what they believe because it's not politically correct."

"I think it was a very significant event. It's just the Miss USA pageant, but it could be a turning point in the cultural battle that's being waged," he said. "People have rallied around Carrie and said, 'Enough is enough.' "
