Days after losing the Miss USA crown, Miss California continues to defend her anti-gay marriage stance.

During Sunday's competition, Miss California Carrie Prejean, who finished second, was asked by openly gay celebrity blogger Perez Hilton if she believes gay marriage should be adopted by all fifty states.

Prejean answered: “Well, I think it's great that Americans can choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And, you know what, in my country and in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.”

Hilton hit back with a nasty video rant posted on his website where he says, “She gave the worst answer in pageant history. She lost because she's a dumb bitch, okay?” And added that he would have snatched the pageant crown from her head if she would have won. He later apologized, “We were/are sooo angry, hurt, frustrated by her answer. Perez would love to take Miss California out for coffee and talk.”

Prejean has conceded that her answer might have cost her the competition but said she was being true to her faith.

“I was ready for my question, and when I heard it from [Hilton], I knew at that moment after I'd answered the question, I knew that I was not going to win because of my answer,” she said Tuesday on NBC's Today Show. “Because I had spoken from my heart, for my beliefs and for my God. ... It's not about being politically correct, for me, it's about being biblically correct.”

During an appearance on Your World Cavuto on Fox News, Prejean said she feels sorry for Hilton and would pray for him.
