    Miss California Carrie Prejean, 21, is proud of her intolerance.

    Carrie Prejean may not have won Miss USA, but we've got a new title for her: "Miss Nut Job."

    Miss California made an anti-gay oopsie on-stage at the Miss USA pageant Sunday night, telling gay judge Perez Hilton in the question and answer session that she believes marriage should be between men and women only.

    "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she said as she answered Hilton's question.

    "No offense to anybody," Prejean told the shocked Hilton and equally flabbergasted crowd at the Las Vegas event.

    Since she lost the crown, Prejean's been stumping her anti-gay agenda to media across the country, saying that her answer may not have been P.C. -- but it sure pleased the Lord, she assumed.

    “It’s not about being politically correct; for me, it was being biblically correct,” the preening Prejean told Matt Lauer on the "Today" show.

    Hilton lashed out at Prejean on his blog Monday, calling her a "b***h" and "the C word."

    Prejean, a San Diego native, responded to the gossip diva by saying she's "praying for him."

    Prejean also claimed Tuesday that her sister is a gay rights activist -- proving that apples can indeed fall very, very far from their respective trees.

    Hilton's question -- about whether she approves of recent measures in states like Vermont to equalize marriage laws -- was a "test" of Prejean's faith, the pageant queen told Fox News.

    "By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith," Prejean said. "I'm glad I stayed true to myself."

    We're curious -- if the Q&A was a test of faith, what's the bikini competition for?

    Though Prejean's out of luck with Miss USA, she's gotten some fringe benefits thanks to her controversial remarks. "I've gotten over 500 Facebook friend requests," she said.

    Yay! Jesus' approval and Facebook friends? What more could a girl want?

    Oh, yeah - common sense.
