The Big Apple's unconditional approval? What higher worldly honor could there be? And to simultaneously have your Heavenly Father's approval? You're tops, kid. RAJ

Wow. I'm impressed. If there is anything virtuous or lovely...

Good luck to this young lady.

If there is anything, (Miss New York City) virtuous, lovely, of good report or praiseworthy.....

Good Choices provide the opportunity for Good Outcomes. Staying true to yourself and keeping the standards you believe in will inspire others to do the same. Your example to be in the world but not of the world is wonderful, and your inner beauty and essence shine through as you seek after worthwhile goals.

Thank you for representing what so many of us strive to do, and be everday. Obviously your love for the gospel and the Lord shows through in everything you do. Wish you all the best and again, appreciate you sticking to your convictions despite the pressures of the world. We need more examples of people like this, not the edgy pop culture icons. Ultimately happiness depends on following these principles and not the successes of the world.

'"If I'd won (Miss New York) there would have been no wedding this weekend," Wright said. "As it is, I'm actually in Utah and being married." - Article

This is great.

But I thought we were NOT supposed to make an issue of a person's faith if they are Mormon?

*'President Obama's purported 'weird'-Mormon strategy against Mitt Romney will backfire, pundits say' - By Hal Boyd, Deseret News - 08/10/11

Obama DOSEN'T call Romney's faith weird, and he gets flack for it.

This woman makes a proclamation about it, and it's 'great.'

Which is it?

Pagan....It would be foolish for Obama to attack Mitt's religion given his own Rev Wright religious experience......This article is about a girl from Utah with Utah roots.....With the majority of the state being Mormon it is noteworthy that she is also Mormon.......I wonder if she were gay, would you still have the same opinion!

Please. People were attacking Obama for things he NEVER did before he DIDN'T mention Romney's faith.

Example:

*'GOP official apologizes for Obama chimp email' - By GILLIAN FLACCUS - AP - 04/19/11

'Calif. woman sends 'birther' message with photo of president's face on chimpanzee's body'

I was simply pointing out the obvious bias that some have when people bring up Mormonism, but then Mormons, like this girl, do it themselves.

If this woman was a lesbian, it wouldn't affect me as she is married and I shouldn't have any romantic interest in her now that she's married anyway.

Of course, since YOU brought up the scenerio if she was a lesbian...

and I, didn't.

Funny that.

The other contestants with their rehersed canned responses provided an arena where this Miss NYC was a breath of fresh air, she spoke her mind and came across as not saying what ever it took to win, but what she believed, and this is why she won. She truthfully stood for SOMETHING.

"let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good work and glorify your father in heaven."
@pagan: i know this young woman very well, and she has made no "proclamations". she has only quietly gone about her life expressing her beliefs to those that ask. her example of what an LDS woman believes in has always been manifest in her words, actions and deeds. She is a credit to her family, her community , and her LDS faith.
I've seen your comments in the past, they always seem to be antagonistic towards the LDS church and anything associated with it. If you have such a problem with the church, than perhaps you should just address your ire towards the church directly and just write THEM letters. taking pot-shots at this girl is LAME.

I thought I was.

It's members.

It you don't want contention, only interact with people who agree with you.

I think every one of the young women who competed in our last Miss Utah pageant could have learned something from her - you don't need to wear bikinis and immodest, expensive evening gowns.

Regardless of ones faith, belief, etc., you've gotta respect this
contestant. I particularly liked her statement, "When you stick to who you are, people) notice you more." What a good example .... for all! Enough said. Some of the other reader's posts might be digging much deeper than necessary.

Hmmm, for someone who is so against bigotry and blindly dismissing individuals because of labels attached to them, I am surprised that Pagan is so eager to write this girl off with his bizarro news-clip attacks. I thought she was lovely and her accomplishments were impressive. I don't know her personally, but her actions were commendable.

By the way, it is "its," not "it's." Its refers to a possessive article, whereas it's is a contraction of "it is." That helps clarify who you are dismissing out of hand, even though you neither know them nor understand their motives. At first I was confused....

So...my opinion is tainted because, I didn't use spell check?

Who is dismissing...

whom?
