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?

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.
