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 wont be speaking. I am waiting for appropriate channels, he said. I dont think television is the appropriate channel.
The petitions began after Carson told Fox News Channels Sean Hannity, My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. Its a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality it doesnt matter what they are they dont get to change the definition.
One of the petitions, quoted by The Hill newspaper, reads: We retain the highest respect for Dr. Carsons 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.
MSNBCs 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.

This shows you the crap that is graduating from Johns Hopkins.
I’m sure John Hopkins has a Christian Student association. Why are they silent? If I were at that graduation I would stand and give my back to face the speakers in protest.
This is how civilizations fall. The left wants to eliminate anyone who isn’t a lock step thinker and their definition grows tighter and tighter. Eventually you silence the majority of your thinkers and society regresses.
Imagine if Albert Einstein, Jonas Salk, or Thomas Edison had been ostracized because they disagreed with the modern left on gay marriage or gun control.
Don’t back down Ben. He who is without sin, cast the first stone. They are all a bunch of hypocrites.
Actually the vaginal area of the sheep is probably much cleaner than the exhauist pipe of the average Homo.
Nothing is more intolerant than a liberal. Nothing.
It can be argued that he will gain more listeners by being kicked off the podium than he would making the speech.
Rather than counter attack directly, he can quietly stick knives in them over and over as the subject never goes away
Very cool and mild mannered he is becoming a white hot celebrity, a dangerous political foe
Yeah they know what they are doing. They are getting an orgasm and that is all that matters to them.
Not the uterus. The vagina.
Carson already stands for something - - that's precisely why the faggot lobby has targeted him. The best thing he can do is shrug and walk away, thereby denying the faggots the noisy public fight they want. Carson's handling of this is perfect - - he puts it right back on the John Hopkins faggots and the John Hopkins normals to figure out.
When I went to school they had him as a guest speaker during the Obamacare debate. Best speaker they ever had. Faculty were pissed-off for days afterwords.
The Medicine school! The very place he works with!
So now he’s going to end up being ousted from his job? These assholes. To think the physician staff have nerve to get after this genius head of department, this compassionate man who doesn’t even take credit for what he does.
Yes, he fixed my tiny nephew’s head long ago.
JH Hospital has more to worry about than what Carson thinks of homos. After all, the other week 1 of their gynos killed himself when info began to surface about him taking stills and films of his women patients and collecting them for fun.
None of this gay stuff is tied to rationality, but one would think that Johns Hopkins medical school would be aware of the biological facts concerning homosexuality (i.e. things don’t fit?).
As we all can see, tolerance only goes one way. Communists are never tolerant, though they preach it.
Unfortunately most of the things that are of value to us, will offend the dems/marxists. These are most challenging times. We need to pray more.
“These people are dragging us into the dark ages with their hate.”
That’s why it will be ever so much fun when the SHTF.
Given the venue, the lead time, the collective intelligence contained in them who will be graduating and the many possible ways to respond, this is a very telling response. The tactic of silencing one with whom you disagree rather than giving, logically and calmly, the opposing argument is indication of the poverty of the opposition. Johns Hopkins’ reputation has become smaller in my estimation.
They know EXACTLY what they do. That’s why they are such losers.
Typically, Dr. Carson has behaved as the epitome of an intelligent and honorable man. Too bad it didn’t rub off on his students.
When one sees a 2013 Johns Hopkins medical diploma, the question will be, “Is this physician a homosexual or a coward?” These graduates paid big bucks for this travesty.
