Dr. Carson Banned from a Commencement Speech? By John Fund March 29, 2013
Dr. Carson became a media sensation in January when he questioned Obamacare and progressive taxation in a speech to the National Prayer Breakfast as President Obama sat just a few feet away from him.
With his new prominence, Carson has apparently also riled some liberals, including these Johns Hopkins students. Last Tuesday, he told Sean Hannity of Fox News that marriage is between a man and a woman. 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.
That inappropriate comparison of gays to members of the North American Man/Boy Love Association and those who practice bestiality, along with his pointed criticisms of liberal policies at the prayer breakfast, prompted a petition demanding that he be replaced with another commencement speaker. Carson has responded by telling the Baltimore Sun the following:
I think people have completely taken the wrong meaning out of what I was saying. First of all, I certainly believe gay people should have all the rights that anybody else has. What I was basically saying is that as far as marriage is concerned that has traditionally been between a man and a woman and nobody should be able to change that.
Now perhaps the examples were not the best choice of words, and I certainly apologize if I offended anyone . . . But the point that I was making was that no group of individuals, whoever they are, whatever their belief systems, gets to change traditional definitions. The reason I believe the way I do, I will readily confess, is because I am a Christian who believes in The Bible.

"In fact, it was liberal Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor who brought up the issue of bestiality during this weeks oral arguments on a gay-rights case, openly asking if the extension of marriage law to gays would open the courts up to lawsuits demanding equal marriage rights by polygamists and those who engage in bestiality.
Choose your words carefully and don't EVER apologize for anything.
He is not on defensive. He will cut them to ribbons and they will never feel his razor cuts. The blood he draws over this incident will be immense
Peirs Morgan, Brian Williams, they all do this, and decent people like Mr Carson always attempt to respond in good faith.
If they are going to get their message out they cannot allow themselves to be led by the leftwing moonbat journalists, who are obviously more interested in burying the message and smearing the conservative.
Maryland Democrats lynching Dr. Carson’s speech to the graduating students.
Obviously a great loss for the majority of John Hopkins students and staff. Maybe they can get someone more to their liking and mindset. I think Jim Carey would probably make himself available if he is not booked somewhere else to make an a$$ of himself.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
