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.

Screw ‘em—it’s their loss if he doesn’t speak.
No guts. One of the best points he can make to a young crowd is to stand for something.
>> equating same-sex marriage with
Aren’t the proponents of same-sex ‘marriage’ equating the uterus to the rectum?
So much for lib/commie tolerance for minorities when they happen to be sterling individuals such as Dr. Carson or for that matter, Herman Cain.
Too bad he buckled.
After 4 years of indoctrination, these little jam-tarts could use at least 1/2 hour for an opposing view point.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
I guess these medical students are all aware that under socialized medicine (ObamaCare) they will make 42% less than they would if we didn’t get ObamaCare. That is how much less doctors make in Canada than in USA. I guess these students don’t have college loans to repay, or malpractice insurance to pay for????????????
What the Dr said was absolutely right! Homosexuality and pedophilia are one in the same..men who molest little boys are gay..of course the left REFUSES to acknowledge that FACT so instead they are slandering a good man..they are doing to him EXACTLY what they did to Sarah Palin..they see a threat and they are trying to destroy him..but it wont work..all the left is showing us is who they fear
I am reading a book that Ayn Rand wrote in the 1960s! The students then were like the students now, they do not believe in freedom of speech. You should all read ALL of her books.
If John Hopkins is like Columbia and other training grounds for the healthcare industry, they could be sex positive proponents.
Columbia gives us goaskalice.columbia.edu/ which (at least at one time) offered non-judgmental advice on human-animal sex (risks, disease, etc.).
First they came for the Jews, but I wasn’t Jewish. Then they came for the Catholics, but I wasn’t Catholic...Then they came for......Its Germany in the ‘30’s all over again. Believe it!
Amen, Jim, Amen! We have been watching the mini series The Bible, and we were watching the part about Sodom and Gomorrah while the Supremes were hearing this case. Sure brought it all to light what God thinks about this.
Hey basil! I haven’t seen you in a long time. I think we were both at a Ron Paul event at Surfside Beach many years ago.
He didn’t buckle. He’s doing the classy thing. Let Johns Hopkins formally ask him not to come. Then it’s on them, the bias and bigotry.
Deliver the speech on You tube. It will reach many more than the few thousand graduates will, and if preceded by a preface explaining that this cannot be uttered on a modern campus, will be all the more powerful
Probably—I was at so many places with so many people in the last about 14 years.
I post something on FR nearly every day—don’t know how you could miss me—LOL!
Good to hear from you. I hope everything is going well.
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.
Yeah, but unlike the average German in the 1930s, we will NOT give up our guns. The 2nd Amendment has a purpose.
Please don’t give up, Dr. Carson. Right is right, no matter who says it, or where it is said.
To heck with the PC nut jobs.
I agree with you. It sure makes you wonder what marvelous medical advances (if any) are going to come out of this graduating class, eh?
That's the answer he should have given, rather than folding and apologizing.
If you are ill you better stay far away from that crowd. I would not trust them to treat my dog’s ass. messing around with them will cause you to go from sick to dead very quickly.
Future Johns Hopkins doctor.
I doubt the young useful idiots have any idea of the overall Marxist goals. They’re just going along with the flow, completely ignorant of the fact that they’ve been totally brainwashed by government union goons, aka public school teachers.
Why would JH need a World class neurosurgeon, when they can have an expert fudge packer talk about fudge packing and how much they love each other?
