Ben Carson: Live and Let Live, But Don't Let Gays 'Redefine' Marriage for Everybody Else: VIDEO


Dr. Ben Carson likes to think of himself as a kind of "live and let live" libertarian. And so presumably, when he compared gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals last year during a discussion on gay marriage, he was really just trying to articulate that he doesn't like interfering with people who choose to love someone of the same sex, or molest a child, or f--k a horse - they just don't get to "redefine" marriage for the rest of society. Makes total sense...

Appearing on Larry King's show earlier this week, the right-wing neurosurgeon spoke about his libertarian political philosophy and why he doesn't see marriage equality as a civil rights issue. He also shared his thoughts on the 2016 presidential election and whether he'll enter the race.

Ben Carson: Same-Sex Marriage Is A 'Finger-In-Your-Eye To God' - LISTEN

Anti-gay activist Ben Carson joined James Dobson on Family Talk Radio last week to discuss pro-LGBT pastors, reports Right Wing Watch. Ben carson

In a bizarre exchange, Dobson, who argued that bisexual people “have sex with males and females at the same time,” said:

“If men can marry and if the things that are said about same-sex relationships and marriage and the Bible are misunderstandings, what do you do with the rest of LGBT? What do you do with bisexuality? If one of those is right and proper and holy, what about those who have sex with males and females at the same time? That’s called orgies, that’s what it used to be called, or just sleeping around with everybody and it doesn’t matter. How can a Christian minister who reads the Bible condone that?”

Agreeing with Dobson, Carson argued that same-sex marriage is offensive to God:

“Well, you know, my emphasis is that marriage is an institution established by God himself...So when you start distorting that, you’re really going pretty deep into the finger-in-your-eye to God. That’s why I have a hard time understanding why ministers are willing to do that.”

Last month, English comedian Russell Brand made a video criticizing Carson's homophobic views.

Comedian Russell Brand Tears Apart Dr. Ben Carson's Anti-Gay 'Logic' - VIDEO


British comedian Russell Brand made a video criticizing Dr. Ben Carson — an anti-gay pundit who embarrassed his alma mater by comparing homosexuals to child and animal rapists.

While viewing Carson’s past interview clips, Brand hears Carson talk about “getting rid of political correctness and replacing it with civil discourse.” Brand then responds, “When people talk about political correctness, it’s not long before they say something either racist or homophobic.”

CarsonIn the same interview, Carson says that he only has a problem with gays redefining marriage, but that if gays want to call their unions something else, we can.

Oh wait, we tried that. They were called “civil unions” and they weren’t recognized as marriages by the federal government and were thus denied the “1,138 benefits, rights and protections provided on the basis of marital status in federal law.”

Brand adds that gay marriage stops personally affecting people the instant they stop worrying about it, because apart from worry, gay marriage affects straight people in absolutely no way at all.

Later, when Carson goes onto say that gays who want to call their unions “marriages” are like people who’d like two and two to equal five, Brand responds:

“By comparing a social and civil idea like sexuality to an objective system of signs like arithmetic… the only point about [math] is that it’s about definitive systems and symbols… if you apply that to social structures which are cultural and constructed then you’re saying that your opinion is as objectively righteous as mathematics, something is beyond morality and is absolute.”

In a later Fox News segment with Sean Hannity, Carson casually lumps gays in with the pedophile group the North American Boy Love Association and those who support raping animals. Sean Hannity then casually throws incest and polygamy into the mix, supposedly paraphrasing Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

“I suppose what they’re doing is they equate something that they personally dislike with other things they assume a larger category of people find objectionable,” Russell says.

Although Carson eventually offered a self-serving apology for his hateful remarks (largely in an unsuccessful attempt to keep from being ousted as John Hopkins’ commencement speaker), he continues to shill for the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage.

FOX News' Ben Carson Slated to Keynote For Hate Group (Again)


You may remember Fox News contributor Ben Carson for his comments comparing homosexuality to sex with animals and pedophilia. He's back with another head-scratcher of a theory, and this one is decidedly more elaborate. Gay marriage is a Marxist plot to impose a 'new world order'.

Video is AFTER THE JUMP, but the logic is tough to follow on a first listen, so I've transcribed below to help you follow along. 

[America's] strength lies in our unity. And there are so many forces that are there to try to destroy that unity —the only way to bring America down. If you look in a lot of writings of the Neo-Marxists when they talk about the New World Order, they say there's only one stick in the mud: how do you get [America] out of the way and how do you change them? They said there were two things: their Judeo-Christian faith, and their strong families.

Here's the gist: America's "strong family values" and "Judeo-Christian faith" have made it the final pin to fall in the "New World Order" conspiracy, where a global power snatches control of all the world's countries. Carson was just announced as the keynote for Pacific Justice Institute; an organization recently classified a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It bears stating that this is not the first time Carson has done a keynote for a group of such distinction.

Dr. Ben Carson to Keynote NOM’s First Ever Gala Dinner

Ben carson

Dr. Ben Carson, the Fox news contributor who previously compared gay marriage to NAMBLA and sex with animals, will be the keynote speaker at the National Organization for Marriage’s first Gala dinner in Washington D.C. next month.

Equality Matters reports:

In a May 6 email to supporters, NOM President Brian Brown wrote that "it's 1972 for marriage," referring to the year before the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a woman's right to an abortion and the growing expectation that the Court will take up marriage equality once again by 2015. To protest the frightening possibility that same-sex couples nationwide will soon enjoy civil equality, NOM will hold its second annual March for Marriage in Washington on June 19.

The gala dinner will take place that evening and tickets are on-sale now ranging in price from $300-$10,000.

Be sure and get a ticket now, as they're likely to sell out fast and who knows how expensive they'll be once scalpers get a hold of what's left!

Ben Carson: Gay People Should Have Equal Rights But Not 'Extra Rights' Like Redefining Marriage — VIDEO


Dr. Ben Carson - a "conservative hero" who compared gay marriage to NAMBLA and sex with animals and was subsequently forced to step down as a commencement speaker last year at Johns Hopkins University, despite his backpedaling attempts to apologize, took the stage at CPAC yesterday and said he would “continue to defy the PC police who have tried in many cases to shut me up," Right Wing Watch reports.

Added Carson: “Of course gay people should have the same rights as everyone else. But they don’t get extra rights, they don’t get to redefine marriage."
