Miss Beverly Hills 2010 Lauren Ashley Thinks God Wants Gays “Put To Death”

Watch your tiara, Carrie Prejean: the search for America’s Next Top Homophobic Beauty Queen just got a new contestant! Miss Beverly Hills 2010 Lauren Ashley, 23, recently told Fox News that she believes God wants gays and lesbians to be “put to death.” Quoth the young beauty queen:

“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. … 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.”

Lauren Ashley, who’ll compete in the Miss California beauty pageant next November, also does not support same-sex marriage. Duh. (Besides the point: Ashley plans to stay a virgin until her wedding night, but she’s also friends with Paris Hilton, so we’ll see how that goes.) We just wonder what all the gays who do Ashley’s hair/makeup/gowns will think about her comments on being “put to death.” Best of luck on the beauty pageant circuit, hon! [Fox News]
