Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley Says Bible Calls For Death To Gays
Lauren Ashley is representing Beverly Hills in the Miss California pageant, and she makes Carrie Prejean sound like Truman Capote. Ashley defends her position by quoting the Bible.
“The Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman. In Leviticus it says, ‘If man lies with mankind as he would lie with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death and their blood shall be upon them.’ The Bible is pretty black and white,” Ashley told Pop Tarts.
“I feel like God himself created mankind and he loves everyone, and he has the best for everyone. If he says that having sex with someone of your same gender is going to bring death upon you, that’s a pretty stern warning, and he knows more than we do about life.”
It’s not clear whether Ashley believes gays will be put to death by God or if they will somehow attract death. It would interesting to find out if she believes AIDS is God’s revenge on gays.
It’s so nice to know that some of Ashley’s friends are gay.
“That isn’t really the issue. I have a lot of friends that are gay, and … I have a lot of friends who have different views, and we share our views together,” she said. “There’s no hate between me and anyone.”
And she’s a big fan of Carrie Prejean.
“She is definitely a beautiful person and I love that she stood up for what she believes in. I think that’s gorgeous,” Ashley said. “Perez Hilton definitely overreacted a little bit. He took it personally, and I’m sure that she loves him just as much as she loves everyone else.”
Ashley owns her own personal training company in Beverly Hills. And even though she parties with Paris Hilton, she tries to steer clear of doing anything too naughty. She said she plans to remain a virgin until her wedding night.
“I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t smoke weed or cigarettes. My definition of partying is a little different,” she said. “I feel like my body is the Temple of God and it’s my temple so it’s really good to treat it well. I also feel like sex was made for marriage. You really show your future husband or wife respect and you build a lot of trust before you get married. You don’t have sex with other people, so that should definitely build trust, because you waited.”
