“I have a quick question,” the attendee asked, getting Carson’s attention. “Do you think I chose to be gay?”
“Did you choose to be gay?” Carson responded.
“Yes, do you think I chose to be gay?”, asked the attendee, throwing in Carson’s face an assertion he has made many times.
“That’s a long conversation,” Carson replied.
“I think you’re full of s–t,” said the attendee.
