Dr. Ben Carson Back Pedals

Featured, News — March 30, 2013 at 1:01 pm by

Msnbc Carson told FOX News host Sean Hannity Tuesday, “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality–it doesn’t matter what they are–they don’t get to change the definition.”Carson’s comparison of gay relationships to pedophilia (NAMBLA stands for the North American Man/Boy Love Association) and bestiality has caused the pediatric neurosurgeon to fall from his perch as a Republican rising a star in recent days. Earlier this month, he drew a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and just last month, he publicly slammed President Obama’s position on taxes, the deficit, and health care while addressing three thousand people at the National Prayer Breakfast. The president watched from the dais, just a few feet away. In 2008, former President George W. Bush presented Carson with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Carson said he has not told the university that he will not be delivering the commencement address.“I am waiting for appropriate channels,” Carson said. “I don’t think television is the appropriate channel.”Carson also offered an apology for his Tuesday comments and addressed his mention of bestiality and pedophilia.“What I was basically saying and if anyone was offended, I apologize to you. What I was basically saying is there is no group. I wasn’t equating those things, I don’t think they’re equal. If you ask me for an apple and I give you an orange you would say, that’s not an orange. And I say, that’s a banana. And that’s not an apple either. Or a peach, that’s not an apple, either. It doesn’t mean that I’m equating the banana and the orange and the peach. In the same way I’m not equating those things.”

I am no neurosurgeon, but I am pretty positive using gay, bestiality, and pedophilia in the same sentence is never a good thing. You are the top doctor in the country, nothing that comes out of your mouth should put the term “Donkey Show,” in my head. Dont worry Dr., after clearing the air with the fruit analogies, I’m sure you’ve protected your street cred.

P.S. At the end of the day, every hater would jump at the chance to have him cut them open.

Update-Ben Carson announces, “I love gay people.” ~All better

  1. Isn’t it funny that people equate apologies to back pedaling. Apologies have to be made sometime because,like Carson has said the PC police are always out there writing tickets.Let us not take something so small in the big picture to try and incriminate the man.He should be the new wave politician but the system is so sick.Politicians are lawyers in that they will never change.The victory is more important than the consequences.We go down the tubes in the end with that type of thinking.Anyway,doctors are smarter than lawyers and a tad more honest.Period. Go Carson
