It's OK if someone doesn't believe gay marriage is right in the eyes of their religion/the eyes of God, but when people say "marriage should be between a man and a woman" they usually mean "I think the law should be marriage should only be between a man and a woman". There's a very clear distinction, the former is logically defensible, the latter isn't.
But she even said that it was because of how she was raised, and then afterwards she was told that she shouldn't talk about her faith to which they pressured her into apologizing for what she said.

Donald Trump, who owns most of the Miss Universe Organization, defended Prejean's answer, saying that "Miss California has done a wonderful job" and that "It wasn't a bad answer, that was simply her belief." He then added that the question was "a bit unlucky" and that no matter which way she answered the question "she was going to get killed".
Several elected officials, including Gavin Newsom, mayor of San Francisco and a prominent supporter of same-sex marriage, and political pundits criticized Hilton and defended Prejean for honestly stating her personal beliefs.
I think that second one says quite a bit.
