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.
