Ben Carson

I know this can be a touchy subject around here, but former Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon and current potential presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson just made another, um, surprising statement. The Hill reported on a speech Carson gave before conservatives at the Iowa Freedom Summit, noting it was generally well-received, even yielding “the first standing ovation of the day.” But it included this:

“‘What I have a problem with is when people try to force people to act against their beliefs because they say “they’re discriminating against me.” So they can go right down the street and buy a cake, but no, let’s bring a suit against this person because I want them to make my cake even though they don’t believe in it. Which is really not all that smart because they might put poison in that cake,’ he said to chuckles from some of his staff and dead silence from the journalists in the room.”

It’s a joke, of course. Ha, ha. It’s not like LGBT Americans are ever victims of violence, right?

By the way, if the thought of a Carson candidacy makes you nervous, take heart. According to the man himself, it’s possible we may not even have an election next year.

  1. Well, then Dr. Carson won’t be offended when a baker says he does not make cakes for people of color! He will gladly go to another baker! And when he is driving with his family in the Midwest and he stops in a small town with only one motel, he won’t be offended when they refuse to allow him to stay because he and his family are “colored.” And he should be careful, too, because those motel people might lynch him. Just kidding.

  2. This article title is a bit misleading. However, I think his comments are still very short-sighted and small minded.

  3. THIS from a black man: “‘What I have a problem with is when people try to force people to act against their beliefs because they say “they’re discriminating against me.”
