  • Marriage as God intended: Between a woman and a man who plays quarterback like a woman.
Former Rams quarterback Kyle Boller and his longtime girlfriend, former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, tied the knot Friday night in Prejean's hometown of San Diego.

Prejean, you may recall, was the odds-on favorite to be crowned Miss America until she told gay-and-proud blogger Perez Hilton in front of a national television audience that, "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman."

Prejean later said she, "didn't want to offend anybody," but refused to back down, calling her beliefs, "biblically correct." (The Bible's stance on sex tapes and topless photos is still under debate.)

So how did she and Boller go about not offending the queer community at their wedding? By having a lavish ceremony at a hotel owned by Doug Manchester, the guy who donated $125,000 to the Prop 8 campaign that outlawed gay marriage in California.

It doesn't seem like the dynamic duo felt any remorse about the subtle up-yours either.

In some hard-hitting reporting, E! Online quoted an anonymous source as saying the couple, "seemed really happy," as they sipped cocktails with friends and family before being whisked away in a white Rolls Royce Phantom to their honeymoon in Iran, a country that Prejean remarked, "knows how to treat the homosexuals properly."
