Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson appeared on a conservative radio show last week and warned that marriage equality would lead to polygamy and other things, though those things were not specified.
“If you change the definition of marriage for one group, what defense do you have for the next group that comes along and wants it changed?” the Republican presidential candidate asked radio host Eric Metaxas on Thursday. “Can you say, ‘oh no we’re just changing it for one group and it’ll be this way forever’ – how is that fair? It just doesn’t make sense.”
Polygamy is “the natural next question,” Carson said. “And on it goes from there.”
As we reported back in May, Carson is among the leaders of the GOP candidates in terms of animus toward the LGBT community because he thinks being gay is a choice, he opposes bans on harmful ‘conversion therapy’, he supports anti-gay ‘religious freedom’ bills, he jokes about Christians harming gays, he supports the removal of pro-equality judges, he has compared gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals, he believes LGBT advocates are the “enemies of America”, and he opposes marriage equality.

He added, in his interview with Metals:
“I’m a very reasonable and tolerant person. I have nothing against gay people whatsoever and I would like for them to answer is what position can a person like me take who has nothing against gay people, but who believes in the traditional biblical definition of marriage that is acceptable to them. I’ve yet to hear a clear answer on that.”
