“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.”

Even tribal societies had the awareness and common sense to keep track of their population levels. A decline in the number of women in their tribe was cause for alarm. Their leaders would react by sending out braves to steal some women (not men, mind you), from neighboring tribes, or perhaps from a passing wagon train.

Marriage between a man and a woman is necessary for the survival of any culture, even an advanced cosmopolitan society. Trivializing marriage with efforts to equate gay marriage with straight marriage is silly and destructive.

So exactly what is it about Carson’s remarks that are “incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins”? Do they find it repugnant for one to refuse to equate gay marriage with traditional marriage? Or is John’s Hopkins criticism of Carson just empty words ?

After 4 years of indoctrination, these little jam-tarts could use at least 1/2 hour for an opposing view point.

Well, that tells us what Johns Hopkins thinks commencement is for. To smooth over the horrid incongruities of Socialist and Gay Movement propaganda, and to reassure the little dears that we do too care and kumbaya, we're all holistically hole-ists together!

I think the band should have played that old Spirit tune from the end of the 60's, "Have You Met My Uncle Jack?" to put things in the spirit of the occasion.

On second thought, I think the name of the tune was just "Uncle Jack". But I quoted the first line.

It's pure-d Nazi repression of 7000 years of human experience with deviant sexuality.

It's delivery on the gay ranter's promise that "we will go back and affirmatively punish" dissenters who put up a good show of backbone.

Himmler would be pleased.

These Hopkins grads have no interest in hearing the thoughts of something so fascist as a brain surgeon.They aspire to be community organizers and personal injury lawyers,both genuine professions of the *future*.

Never mind the students. We all know how many fools there are in student bodies, apparently even elders going for literal doctorals.

What’s really bad here is the faculty. My God, these people are direct colleagues of Carson! This could even ultimately be a threat to his job! Of course, he towers over the lot of them, being head of a major department for 25 years or so.

Agreed! If they want to practice medicine, they had BETTER be completely OK wrt dealing with patients who have opinions, lifestyles and cultures that are vastly different from their own. Let ‘em re-read the Hippocratic Oath (the original one, not the bowdlerized PC version)!

RE :”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.”

On a similar note this turned up on the HP/AOL main page with the link title changed to :'GOP Committeeman Refuses to Resign After 'Filthy' Anti-Gay Slur' :

Michigan Republican Dave Agema says he is refusing to resign after promoting an article that said “part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle.”
“They say ‘Dave's got to withdraw’ or ‘he's got to resign,’ which I'm not going to do,” Agema told WWMT Newschannel 3.
Agema, a former lawmaker who now serves as a Michigan Republican National Committeeman, said he posted the article to promote discussion on gay issues within the GOP.
“Now’s the time to discuss it, that's why I brought it up,” Agema said. “Say, ‘oh, you're dividing the party,’ no, I don't think so; we're standing on the principle of the party. If the party doesn't stand on its principle, we'll lose our base.

Dave Agema Resignation Not Happening, Republican Says(real title)

Stating the truth is a slur now. They have won.

” Homosexuality and pedophilia are the same”

I was molested by a woman.

As I’m male, that would seem to undermine you’re conclusion.

However, I know exactly what you’re saying. Jerry Sandusky and his ilk walk around claiming and appearing to be heterosexual when they’re actually gay child-rapists.

Pederasty was not borne from heterosexual culture.

Dear Lord, as we set this day aside to praise, glorify and thank you for your sacrifice that made it possible for anyone who accepts your gift to live forever in your presence, I ask that you touch the hearts of the people of the United States of America, that they may recognize the evil they support and do, that they turn from their sin, repent and seek your face that you may bless our nation once again.

If that is not to be Lord, I pray that Jesus may return soon.

Your Will Be Done.

Amen

I may be an agnostic, but I firmly believe that "marriage" is a social contract between a man and a woman. If the gays/lesbians want their unions, then call it something else. Call it, "Socialist's Peoples Union" (SPU) or whatever. I'm sick of these clowns and their sexual proclivities being forced in my face where ever I look. I don't give a damn. Take your frigging back door proclivities back in to the back door closet and STFU.

And by the way, homos, I'm heterasexual and thinking about building a parade to promote it.

This is the number one problem we face. Conservatives buckling. The liberals and democrats almost never do, regardless of how in the wrong they are. They are relentless in their single minded focus to ram their agenda down everyone’s throats regardless of what anyone says or does. In fact, they usually double down.

Of course they’ve “won”. This is why I said, in the early 90’s, that I felt like a Jew in early 1930’s Germany. For me, the point at which it became clear was when Bill Clinton won in 1992.

When Bush won in 2000, I said all he did was put off the inevitable for another four years. The guy that said, “If Dukakas had had our current demographic, he would have won, is exactly right.

All this is why I moved where I did. And I take to heart what a pastor said going on 30 years ago, “Where would the early church have been if they had put their faith in Rome.

The Byrds used a very relevant part of Ecclesiastes for a popular song. When they come for us, that “clingers” thing is going to be their worst nightmare.

“If we aren’t gonna give up the guns, then we should use them before they even try.”

Absolutely not. That would be EXACTLY what they would want us to do. And I will not be a part of anything that STARTS an armed conflict with the government or the left. If they (or anyone, for that matter) attack me and mine then the fight will be joined. But I will not start a fight, and most Americans feel the same way. We want, most of all, to be left alone.

But you? By your comment you sound like either a provocateur or a plant.

I love the idea of Dr. Carson giving commencement speech on YouTube that many more would have access to. What the students and faculty, and they are probably not even the majority, is nothing more than censoring free speech and free thought.

As a young boy in the early 1930s depression years and living in ‘white European ghettos’ I learned many, many terms for different sexual behavior, human and animal. I see/think of no reason that I should enumerate these to make my argument that it was God that created the/a difference between man and women, male and female for the purpose of ‘sex’ behavior.

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.

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.

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.
