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.

But he didn't equate them. He said no group, whoever they are, gets to change the definition of marriage. He's right. He could have said no liberal, no pope, no president gets to ...... That's not equating liberals with the pope and/or the president.

“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.”...If people at Johns Hopkins really believe that Dr. Carson was comparing the sexual appetites of gays to those who practice bestiality and pedophila with this statement, it would appear the intellectual prowess of those at Johns Hopkins has been vastly over-rated......

...students at UofM...

I believe you mean Johns Hopkins University (JHU), not the University of Maryland (UofM).

Ignorance is bliss.

The sheeple that repeat many nostrums supporting “same-sex marriage” - as though the issue is all about, and only about “how a couple feels towards each other” are totally ignorant of the legal language used by the activist lawyers and their supportive judges. The sheeple are ignorant of the fact that that legal language is tailor made to suit any “loving couple” (or more) who wants to claim the right to “marriage”. Carson is aware of that even if the sheelple are not.

They know that THEY are not supporting “gay marriage” with the intention of supporting marriage for any adult couple regardless of any conditions, and so they resent Carson connecting gay marriage righta to individuals and groups the sheeple think the issue is not about, or in favor of.

But, contrary to their ignorance, the legal language IS unable to be split off from “gay couples” to anyone else. Legal and judicial decisions based on the activist lawyers and judges legal language and arguments will establish precedents that the same courts will find rationally dificult to ignore that it suits almost anyone.

Ahhh, the activists say, legislatively we can deny all those others.

Really? So, merely legislatively we CAN define who gets to and does not get to “marry”.

Then its not a universal civil right applicable to any kind of couple, and therefore it cannot be a “civil right” for gays either.

No, he’s supposed to give a speech at University of Michigan in the next few weeks and they’re throwing a tantrum about it.

First the MSM came for the Jewish State of Israel because they were the only free state in the middle east, but I wasn’t an Israeli, Then they came for the Catholics who didn’t want to pay for for abortions because they claimed “separation of church and state”, but I wasn’t a catholic, Then they came for a Pediatric neurosurgeon because he lifted himself from the ghetto to become a success and wasn’t in lockstep with socialism, But I wasn’t a Black Neurosurgeon....

Eventually I know they will come FOR ME!!!!!!!

Smart man.

It looks like he is waiting for them to formally dis-invite him.

If they don't, he should show up.

As someone on this thread mentioned, he should give a speech to the school in a studio somewhere and put it on Youtube.

That is if he is formally asked not to speak at the college. After all, I'm sure he was formally invited.

Dr. Carson: Don’t let the bastards grind you down, especially the communists and leftists at Hopkins and at MSNBC (The Major Shitheads and National Bastards Company).

Take the fight to them. You saved thousands of lives in your career. Ask your opponents how many lives they have saved.

My uncle was a doctor who broke the Jewish quota at Johns Hopkins back in the early 1930’s. Antisemitism was rampant back then, and later so was respectable marxism.

Today it looks like it is “liberal racism” against black conservatives.

Stand your ground. Take on OUR enemies head on and destroy them, politely as is your manner, but destroy them.

My personal philosophy is that if I’m going to “turn the other cheek”, it is only in winding up to beat the crap out of my enemy.

What if Dr. Carson shows up to speak and the med students riot & bloody chaos results?

The JH administration doesn’t want that kind of viral publicity. If he faces them down & says, “I’m coming to speak and if you don’t want me, then officially disinvite me”.

JH would lose either way & moral victory for Dr. C.

They long ago lost art and literature. Have you been to an art gallery lately? Their movies aren't worth watching. 80% of their music is crap. A good portion of the scientists have fallen for the man-caused global warming BS.

So what makes medicine any different? It's truly sad. And these are the doctors of the future who will give me my blue pill and tell me to shut up and die when I am old.

The disturbing ‘take away’ is that a significant portion of Johns Hopkins medical school grads are gay or lesbians. I agree with Carson’s take, it’s their day, if they don’t want him, he has other things to do with his time. Their loss, not his.

Perhaps the student body should vote on whether or not he speaks, as opposed to allowing an agenda-driven group declare that they “...feel that these expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply offensive to a large proportion of our student body.” Feeling is not evidence, large does not mean majority. I doubt the subject of his graduation speech was going to address sexuality of any kind. I know, I know, the point of extreme leftists is to destroy, not to tolerate.

Yep, it's all part of the plan.

Almost all (if not all) of the Goals from the Communist Manifesto have been implemented in the USA.

These realate to what you were mentioning, and some of the others we can see the democrats are working hard on also,

I could go on, but the list is at the link I put in above.

Interesting how Islam can be substituted (or added) for Communism in many of the above goals.

Sodomy and bestiality is basically the same thing. No sane man plugs another man in the anus. If the Roberts led Supreme Court folds and allow queer “marriage”, legalization of bestiality is right around the corner.........and why not.

He gave a speech at U of M Hospital yesterday. My husband was going to go but realized he had a scheduling conflict. (Man, was I disappointed, as was my husband.) A colleague went and was so impressed he offered to do a fundraiser for him should he decide to run for office. I haven't heard anymore of how this even went and am really curious to get more info. His talk was “Should Doctors Confine Themselves to Medicine” but was only open to staff and med students.

When is he scheduled to speak again?

And whenever the liberal media is trashing the Catholic Church for a priest sexually molesting a teenager, they NEVER MENTION the priest is a sodomite. I mean never. They do this for two reasons. Reason number one is they want to tar an feather all priests, when 99% of the sexual offenses are committed by fags that should have never became priests to start with......because fags can not control their sexual urges. Number two reason is the leftists love sodomites, so they are not about to tell anyone that the perpetrator was a homosexual. Liberals are the lowest form of scum.

Leftists never want to mention that fact because it shows the gays for what they are..sexual perverts..Look at Jerry Sandusky for example, he’s gay..and he raped little boys..that is what most gay men do..yet they are allowed to adopt CHILDREN..notice that gay men never want to adopt little girls, they want to adopt little boys! What Ben Carson said was 10000000000 percent right on the money..leftists refuse to admit it..because it is their base, just like those NAMBLA freaks are their base

The conservatives who are on the airwaves of any kind, are going to have to learn how to answer the left. It does no good to try to defend one’s beliefs. Go on the attack and don’t be ashamed of having to treat them as such. Turn every accusation back at them. If they are going to go before the left on their turf, keep them busy with your own questions/accusations that they won’t answer, instead of letting them constantly attack. Stand on your rights... for crying out loud... stand for what is right!... and don’t apologize. Don’t go weak on them... learn to fight this war!

Conservative pro-life anti homosexual perversion are ananthem to the GOPe these days.

They keep watching the democrats and their "victories" and so emulate and copy them.

Dems got illegal alien insurgent criminal votes, GOPe thinks they can.

Dems support perversion, GOPe thinks that will work for them too.

The "Grand" Old Party isn't grand, it's just old.

Old and in the way.

I disagree, a petition does not represent the majority of graduates.

Nor should they be denied one last window on an education simply because many of their fellow classmates are demonstratively closed mined.

Carson Willing should continue as speaker and address those too closed mined to face opposing points of view.

Carson is speaking truth to power...and keeps on doing it. The left's respons?

“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.”

So they "feel" that his views are incongruous and deeply offensive, therefore they want to silence him.

Notice, it is not because they are incongruous and offensive, no simply that they "feel" that they are.

Fact is, they have no respect for the 1st amendment or personal political positions except their own...and they will enforce a complete exclusion of others even so mauch as hearing those views, particularly the truth, like a mob.
