Did Miss California's Answer Cost Her the Crown?

Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, of San Diego, did not capture the Miss USA crown on Sunday night and some are wondering whether her answer to a question from pageant judge and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton might have cost her the title. Here is a transcript of the exchange:

Perez Hilton: "Vermont recentlybecame the 4th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?"

Prejean: "Well, I think it's greatthat Americansare able to choose one 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 a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman. Thank you very much."
