MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A resolution has been introduced in the
Alabama House that praises Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean for
speaking out against gay marriage during Sunday night's televised
pageant.

Prejean was competing as Miss California and finished second
after answering a question from judge Perez Hilton concerning her
views on gay marriage. The pageant was won by Miss North Carolina
Kristen Dalton.

The resolution was introduced Tuesday by Republican Rep. Jay
Love of Montgomery.

Love said Prejean showed she was willing to stick to her
convictions even if it meant losing the pageant.

The resolution was referred to the House Rules Committee for
consideration.
