Do you think Ben Carson still has any viability as a Republican presidential candidate after his remarks about Gays ?
sort by best latest
I agree Paula,it is mind boggling how a man with scientific acumen he possesses would have used an anecdotal account of prison life to qualify his statement about choice.But taking a cue from another black "politician" his view could "evolve"?No?
T....Dr. Ben literally flabberghasted me, which is not easy to do. Had Billy Boy Bob from Arkansas made the gay-prison connection, it could be laughable. From a Neuro-surgeon, it is GASP-worthy. How to totally BLOW one's credibility, by Ben Carson.
He will probably sell a lot of books and get a show on fox though
And that's fine, mio cid...this is America where anyone & everyone can write books, preach and/or get their TV airtime & 5 minutes of fame. Success or failure there has fewer consequences than when RUNNING a COUNTRY.....Good question, Mio!
Hi Paula thanks for stopping by . You are very right , if they can convince enough simpletons to make some money ,more power to them . It helps the economy so something good comes from it . :)
He said being Gay is choice because people go into prison straight and (choose to be gay). Clearly he's ignoring the fact that if there were "co-ed prisons" you'd see a lot less same sex activities! Those prisoners choose not go without sex.
dashing..his statement is as flawed as that of the people who think "if priests were allowed to MARRY, they would not sexually abuse young boys." The reality is these men are gay...G-A-Y. Is the church willing to sanction they marry men? Moot point?
Paula, Another thing he overlooked is most so called gay sex in prison is either the result of rape or is done as a matter of survival. Physically weaker men may opt to be with one strong inmate for protection. These men don't (choose) to be gay.
dashing....Clearly he is not familiar with the age-old Inmate phrase...."Gay for the Stay." I'm afraid Dr. Ben is in irreversible denial. His denial is a more negative exacerbation due to his PHd. We KNOW he has to know better.
