Miss California Carrie Prejean says topless photo 'mocks me for my Christian faith'

 Miss California Carrie Prejean, who summoned up a storm of controversy with her anti-gay-marriage views expressed on the Miss USA pageant, is upset that topless modeling shots of her are now on the Web.

Carrie Prejean says photos taken of her as a teenager released by TheDirty.com, were sold "surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith."

293.prejean.carrie.042209 In a statement, Prejean also says the attacks on her and others who "speak in defense of traditional marriage" are intolerant and offensive.

She claims the saucy pictures are just lingerie modeling shots and vows to continue her battle against same-sex marriage.

"I am a Christian, and I am a model," Prejean said in a statement released to the media. "Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be."

A photo of Prejean wearing only pink panties with her back turned to the camera first appeared on the gossip blog TheDirty.com. The pix have now swept the Web. This has got to be making blogger Perez Hilton smile.

He's the judge who asked her that fatal question that may have cost her the Miss USA title.

It's since come out that she got free breast implants just two weeks before the pageant. There are also rumors that she may lose her Miss California crown as a result of the controversy.

Implants. Posing topless. Sounds like Playboy may be her next move.
