MISS PHILIPPINES – VENUS RAJ GAVE AN HONEST ANSWER AND IT COSTS HER THE CROWNby mojofly_elmer (copied from the article of adam villanueva on facebook...)
Let me enlighten you as to why?
Venus Raj lives a simple and poor life. She lives in a province,
sort of your rural America or the boonies. The house she lives in is a
simple thatched-roof hut made of bamboo and wood, located in the middle
...of the rice paddies. Her immediate support are her family, friends, and
relatives. She was born illegitimate. In the Philippine society, it is
still a stigma. She strives to do her best to study hard and succeed in
life. She graduated Cum Laude in Communication Arts and managed to find a
job as Information Assistant in a governmental agency in her province.
While doing that, she helps her mother, a farmer, buys land on
installment basis. Her goal is to help her mother and family improve the
quality of their lives and lift from the life of poverty.
Going back to the question posed by Mr. Baldwin, “what is the one big
mistake that you did in your life, and what did you do to make it
right?” When Venus answered, “In my 22 years of existence, there is
nothing major – major problem that I have done in my life. Because I’m
very confident about my family and the love they are giving me. So thank
you so much…”
IF YOU ANALYZE HER ANSWER, SHE IS TELLING THE AUDIENCE THE TRUTH! WHEN DOES TRUTH BECOMES A LIABILITY?
In her 22 years of life, she did not commit a ONE BIG MISTAKE WORTH
UNDOING OR REGRETTING! SHE THANKS HER FAMILY BECAUSE THEY ARE HER GUIDE
Let’s see…where could she make a big mistake?
DID SHE SLEEP AROUND AND CATCH HIV/STD DISEASES? – No, she did not.
Remember, she lives in a rural area in a conservative Catholic society,
acting whorish is a big NO NO!
DID SHE GET PREGNANT AND HAVE AN ABORTION? – NO, she did not. She is one
wholesome girl. Her family watched, protected, and nurtured her. She
can’t escape the watchful eyes of her 4 brothers. Suitors will have a
hard time to be near her. If there is going to be one, he will be
talking to the whole family instead of talking privately with her.
That’s the way life in rural Philippines. Everybody knows everybody,
and everybody knows what everybody is doing.
DID SHE SMOKE OR DID DRUGS? – NO, she did not. She came from a poor
family. She has no means of buying it. These bad habits are only enjoyed
by the wretched people, who are typically shunned by Philippine
DID SHE FAIL IN SCHOOL? – No, she did not. She excelled in school. Graduated Cum Laude.
DID SHE COVET A MARRIED MAN? – No, she did not. She doesn’t have a boyfriend at the present time.
IS SHE A BAD DAUGHTER? – No, she is not. In fact, she helps her mother and family improve their lives.
OVERALL, VENUS IS A WHOLESOME, GOOD GIRL, WHO GREW UP IN A RURAL
CONSERVATIVE SOCIETY, PROTECTED, NURTURED, AND WATCHED BY HER LOVE ONES
AND DID NOT EXPERIENCE BIG MISTAKES IN LIFE. SHE LEAD A CAREFUL AND
NORMAL LIFE THAT IS TOTALLY OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU EXPECT OF A LIFE OF A
YOUNG LADY IN THE MODERN WESTERN SOCIETY.
UNFORTUNATELY, SHE WAS JUDGED BY A PANEL OF MODERN SOCIETY JUDGES AND
AUDIENCES WHO CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY WERE HEARING. TRUTH IS INDEED
STRANGER THAT FICTION. BUT JUDGES, BY VIRTUE OF BEING A JUDGE, SHOULD
ALSO LOOK AT FACTS AND TRUTHS, NOT SOME GENERALIZED OPINION THAT SOUNDS
GOOD TO THE POLITICALLY CORRECT. VENUS ANSWER WAS FACTUAL AND BRAVE, AND
SHE SHOULDN’T BE LAMBASTED FOR TELLING THE TRUTH, AND IT SHOULDN’T COST
HER THE CROWN.
VENUS COMING FROM A POOR EXISTENCE AND MAKING IT INTO THE WORLD
SHOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR PEOPLE LIVING AND BORN INTO
POVERTY, WHICH APTLY APPLIES TO THE 70% OF THE WORLD POPULATION, AND FOR
THOSE BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK. SHE CAN BE A GREAT MESSENGER TO THE WORLD
1. THERE IS NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF BEING BORN OF OUT WEDLOCK. IT IS
NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. LIFE OFFERS REDEMPTION AND MANY
2. BEING POOR IS NOT A HINDRANCE TO SUCCEED IN LIFE.
3. STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION AND OF FINISHING COLLEGE.
4. HIGHLIGHT THE IMPORTANCE OF MORAL CHARACTER AND A GIRL’S WHOLESOME IMAGE
5. FAITH OF A CREATOR WITH UNLIMITED GIFTS TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE ~NOTHING
IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. HE CAN USE A MESSENGER FROM THE LOWLY AND POOR
AND EXALT HER TO NEW HEIGHTS. SHE CAN BE A LIVING TESTAMENT OF GOD’S
GRACE AND POWER THAT HE CAN DO ANYTHING AND CAN CHANGE LIVES.
6. GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG GIRLS ~BE VIRTUOUS~BE HONEST ~HONOR THE PARENTS~EXCEL IN SCHOOL~HELPS FAMILY, ETC.
WHERE CAN YOU FIND A RARE AND SPECIAL GIRL LIKE VENUS RAJ?
MR. TRUMP AND THE PANEL OF JUDGES FAILED TO DO THEIR DUE DILIGENCE.
THEY FAILED TO DO THEIR JOB AND IN FAILING TO DO THEIR JOB, THEY MISSED
THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY FOR A GREAT MESSENGER TO THE WORLD,
WHO IS CONVINCINGLY BELIEVABLE TO THE WORLD, BECAUSE SHE IS A LIVING AND
BREATHING PROOF OF A POOR GIRL BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK WHO OVERCOMES
HARDSHIPS, OBSTACLES, AND CHALLENGES IN LIFE. JUST LOOK AT HER LIFE …
AND HOW FAR SHE GOES.
IF THE MISS UNIVERSE ORGANIZATION WANTS TO BE RELEVANT NOW AND IN THE
FUTURE, THEY SHOULD SEND THE RIGHT MESSENGER TO THE WORLD, WHO WOULD
INSPIRE THE WORLD BY EXAMPLE, AND WHO CAN WALK THE TALK. A PRETTY FACE
WON’T CUT IT ANYMORE.
