Prejean: They told me to stop talking about God

Prejean: They told me to stop talking about God

Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean sued pageant officials Monday for libel, slander and religious discrimination, accusing them of telling her to stop mentioning God even before her controversial remarks against gay marriage, the Associated Press is reporting.

Prejean, 22, was fired in June by pageant officials who said she missed several appearances. Her attorney says she was ousted because of remarks in April during the Miss USA pageant that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Those comments, made in response to a question by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, made Prejean a darling of Christian conservatives. But the ardor of some cooled after seminude photographs began circulating on the Internet and reports surfaced that she had had breast implants.
