[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Whether he is one’s preferred choice for the GOP nod in 2016 or not, virtually all conservatives have come to admire Dr. Ben Carson and his no-nonsense approach to brushing-back leftists hell-bent on reforming and radically altering our culture and societal values.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Dr. Carson has been clear about his stance on homosexuality- that we should all love one another, but that he does not subscribe to the left’s preferred narrative that we are to celebrate homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle.
In a recent interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Cuomo badgered Carson until the famed neurosurgeon explained that he did not believe homosexuality was a biological determination, but a lifestyle choice.
Discussing the interview with CNN, Carson sat down with Bret Baier of Fox News and, once again, was forced to explain his position on one of the most-pressing social issues of our day.
Carson explained that he had become “irritated” during the interview with Cuomo because the CNN host had continually sought to portray homosexual advocacy as analogous to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s.
“Quite frankly, I didn’t remember any times when there were signs up that says, you know, ‘everybody else here and gay people have to drink at this fountain,’” Carson boldly stated.
He also claimed that the left was overjoyed with his remarks, saying,
“They saw that as the opportunity to finally knock this guy out. They were jubilant. And now they’re saying, ‘I can’t believe this guy is still here. Are you kidding me?’”
Carson broke the political division down into remarkably simple terms by asking a very simple question:
“What position can a person take, who has absolutely no animosity toward gay people but still believes in traditional marriage, that would still be satisfactory?” he asked.
The truth is that we are engaged in a zero-sum game; the left are not looking to supplement the definition of marriage, they are looking to replace it. They are not looking for a broadening of understanding; they are, instead, looking to replace the truths that have stood for thousands of years with their own “progressive” truths that are derived from moral relativism.
Dr. Carson is right to detest the obnoxious analogies to the Civil Rights Movement; those who fought for equality for blacks fought against racist policies that were nothing more than codified white supremacy.
What homosexual activists fight against today are people who merely wish for their beliefs to be respected and for society to continue to uphold the societal values it has maintained for thousands of years.
Further, I can scarcely recall the last time a gay pride parade was broken up with attack dogs and firehoses. Instead, the face of so-called “discrimination” today is having a bakery politely refuse to make a cake celebrating homosexual marriage.
See the difference?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
