Carson Willing to Step Down as Commencement Speaker After Protests

29 Mar 2013 Greg Richter.

A pediatric neurosurgeon who has become the darling of conservatives since speaking against nationalized healthcare is now under fire for comments he made about same-sex marriage.

Dr. Benjamin Carson told “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on Friday that he would be willing to step down as commencement speaker at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine after faculty and students signed petitions asking that he not speak.

“I would say this is their day, and the last thing I would want to do is rain on their parade,” Carson told Mitchell.

Carson said in interview that he has not notified the university he won’t be speaking. “I am waiting for appropriate channels,” he said. “I don’t think television is the appropriate channel.”

The petitions began after Carson told Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are — they don’t get to change the definition.”

One of the petitions, quoted by The Hill newspaper, reads: “We retain the highest respect for Dr. Carson’s achievements and value his right to publicly voice political views. Nevertheless, we feel that these expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply offensive to a large proportion of our student body.”

MSNBC’s web report on the story says Carson equating same-sex marriage with pedophilia and bestiality has caused him to lose some of his star power within the GOP. Carson has said he would consider a run for president if the public was still interested in him a year-and-a-half from now.

I wish that Dr Ben Carson had not backed down, due to the homosexual hate lobby. Homos & lesbians are in the same context and dequated with bestiality in Leviticus. In Romans 1:19-32 God equates home & lesbian behanvior as being unnatural and the lowest form of human reprobtate behavior.

“They are all a bunch of hypocrites.”

Much, much worse than that...much worse.

The sad thing is you are biologically right.

It shows just how contrary to nature homosexuality really is. Sex with animals makes more sense than anal sex, and is less dangerous from a health perspective.

Of course I'm not endorsing bestiality, just pointing out how bad homosexuality really is.

Political correctness was shrewdly concocted primarily by the liberal urban Marxists as a means to condition and muzzle society from discussing truth. It works too as speaking truth will have negative repercussions. It is a reflection of weakminded Facebook manipulated conditioned society that accepts the truth as an unspeakable. Think about it.

The good doctor should give them a taste of their own medicine so to speak. He should tell these assclowns that due to their political views he finds it objectionable for them to be in his classes.

I don't think I've read everything she's written. But I do have a lot of her books and it's astonishing how prescient she was. All this talk about the Republicans of today are the Kennedy-esque Democrats of 50 years ago: Rand said in those days that Democrats were the political trend-setters and that establishment Republicans were basically followers who picked up the same ideas after a decade or so.

Their problem then is the problem they have today: fundamentally, establishment Republicans have no ideological conflict with Democrats. They differ only in methods of implementation and levels of tax-payer funding.

It begins. Revenge for standing up next to the Anointed One and criticizing his policies.

The left is disgusting. All they know how to do is destroy good people.

So typical of college people, with their San Francisco values.
