Skip to comments.The Amazing Grace restored to America by Dr. Ben Carson
Posted on 02/10/2013 4:08:37 PM PST by Kaslin
A phenomenon we all needed came into our view at National Prayer Breakfast 2013, and it couldnt have come along at a better time.
The phenomenon in the person of Dr. Ben Carson didnt just upstage President Barack Obama when he spoke at Thursdays National Prayer Breakfast, he restored amazing grace to a loudly-lauded event.
How can we take to heart an event touted as inspirational and beneficial to federal government officials when they piously break breakfast bread before returning to careers duking it out in House and Senate?
How sincere can proclaimed Christianity be in an atmosphere where the Ave Maria is sung at a 3,500-attendee gathering presided over by a president who champions partial birth abortion?

he was great.....Bill Whittle in his honesty
He Took Obama to the Hoop
An answer to one of my prayers
He sure did
So he said stuff you agree with?
Maybe stuff you have said your own self?
So why should we be lauding him instead of you, since y’all said & believe the same things?
Sorry, but when the fawning starts, my hearing stops.
Truly an “Amazing Grace” moment.
Obama cannot compare to Dr. Carson...in intelligence or purpose. In no way is Obama fit to do more than to shine his shoes.
So when does the media discover a treasure trove of emails to his girlfriend or boyfriend? The man must be destroyed.
Dr Carlson is class.
The quota boy is * ss.
So do a lot of folks who don't try to gain fame for doing so.
Agreed, we don't know enough about him yet.
Does his statement differ in any significant way from your own?
If not, then how is he any better than you?
God, I hates me some fawning.
I hates when people accuse me of doing it when I'm not.
Good grief. You sound like you’re just looking for a rumble. No one fawned over him. People respect what he said, where he said it and in front of whom he said it. Why is that agitating you so?
No one said he’s better than any of us. But he’s a more public figure than most, so the public platform helps to shine a spotlight on his speech. Would the exact speech garner the same attention if you had given it? I’m going with no on that.
How about if you had given it?
You agree with it, right?
Are you trying to gain fame and fortune and notoriety?
Im going with no on that.
Yeah, me too.
I'm just saying let's not fawn all over someone who says the same things we do.
Lord knows that was offensive enough with that Alaskan reality chick.
The look on the worthless _resident's face in the face of a real black intellectual was priceless.
You will be glad you watched! (27:30)
No that I am anywher near a bible thumping, perfect person in his eyes, but I do make an effort, and I recognize that I fail, and fail miserably sometimes...
I believe God wants to bestow so much upon this country and its people, both grace aqnd blessings, more than we can imagine...
But until we the people show a genuine, humble approach to our beliefs, do what we can to restore the VIRTUE in ourselves, and those we elect into office to represent us, how can we honestly expect to be a blessed nation???
We know a reckoning is coming, and we might not be able to stop any additional, self-destructive future before us...
I still believe we can correct the problem by understanding that we need to put this in God’s hands and have the faith to let him guide us out of these troubled times...
I admmit that I am at times very distracted and lose focus of the need to be a virtuous person...Life is not an easy road, the challenges before us are great, but we can do things as individuals to get our own houses in order, and inspire others to do the same...Its a start, and one that is probably a good thing to do regardless...
I tend to shoot from the hip and try to not offend others when I get on these rants, but these are things that have been bugging me for a long time, and are just now starting to manifest themselves in the serious statements I make when the time comes...
I recognize that I have a long way to go, and I also believe I will not be a perfect example, or deserving of any considerations, blessings or grace...But I will do what I can when and where I can to bring what comes from the heart to others and maybe say the right thing at the right time for someone else...
You said it great!
Dr Ben Carson was dynamic and an inspiration. barak was neither.
“Obamas nose is the perfect Barometer!”
It was fun watching, though I wasn’t sure if Obama even understood any of the points that Dr. Carson made. To me, Obama appeared bewildered that the breakfast was about something other then him and what he thinks and believes. He was probably fantasizing about what he would do if he were king, which would be having the good Dr. arrested while laughing and sneering at the Dr. and his audacity to speak his mind. It’s called the audacity of the first amendment.
I heard the good doctor’s speech in its entirety. I highly recommend that
every FReeper go to YouTube and listen to it. It would be like Bonhoeffer speaking truth in front of Herr Hitler in the late 1930’s.
I pray that Dr. Carson doesn’t incur the same fate as Bonhoeffer.
Amen my FRiend. In today’s world, what he said took a lot of courage.
I doubt Dr. Carson has any political ambitions. He’s a very healthy looking 61 year old surgeon who still does a huge number of surgeries annually. - That being said; he’s an accomplished person who is worth reading about - has invented some truly remarkable innovations in difficult surgical procedures. - He’s what Obama WISHES he, himself, was - but so far, isn’t!
Many libs were trying disparage his speaking at the Prayer Breakfast . . . getting threads on other boards deleted . . . but it certainly proves that their claims of people who don’t agree with Obama being racist and not liking him because he’s black . . . as WRONG . . . it certainly proves disagreement with policies and has absolutely nothing to do with color. So shoots that little “card” they love to play DOWN in FLAMES.
This is about the stupidest post I have ever seen, and it’s racist too.
If that’s the best you got, you fail.
I object equally to fawning over anyone.
Palin, Limbaugh, Trayvon Martin.. pick one.
Who is fawning over Trayvon Martin? The left is you got that one right.
Would you have disagreed with him if he were white?
Where did I indicate I disagreed with him? I don't.
I disagree with FAWNING. Over anyone. Pay attention.
You might not realize it but you are fawning over that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Ok.. ignorant or obtuse has been bypassed.
You are now crossing over into delusional territory.
I can only conclude that HG is trolling for a flame war. That’s the only way his comments make sense. This would be a convenient time to have an “ignore” feature as some MBs have. Since we don’t, I’m pretending he’s not there.
