Carrie Prejean: Gay Marriage Question Came From Satan

Appearing on James Dobson's 'Focus on the Family' program, Miss California Carrie Prejean likened Perez Hilton's infamous gay marriage question at Miss USA to a test from Satan.

"I started off by saying I want to win this pageant so bad, I've worked so hard, I wanted to sound politically correct but still stay true to my values."

"But I just knew at that moment that God was just telling me 'Carrie, how bad do you want this?"

"Are you willing to compromise your beliefs for a one year crown of Miss USA'. And I just knew right there and the switch went off."

"I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question," she said. "And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, 'Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people."

"You need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA. And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions. I knew there was no way I was going to win Miss USA. No way."

"I want to encourage other people that when you're faced with an issue which you know in your heart what to say, but you're faced with someone asking it, don't ever compromise that just for pleasing them. Your goal should be to please God, not to please man."

Donald Trump, the man who owns the Miss USA organization, will make a decision on whether Carrie Prejean will be stripped off her Miss California title on Tuesday.
