Ben Carson

--Neurosurgeoun with an eye on conservative politics



-- In Fox News appearance, equated gays with bestiality and the North American Man/Boy Love Association: "Marriage is between a man and a woman. 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."

-- Claims marriage equality advocates are "directly attacking the relationship between God and his people"

-- In his 2012 book, wrote of marriage equality: "[I]f we can redefine marriage as between two men or two women or any other way based on social pressures as opposed to between a man and a woman, we will continue to redefine it in any way that we wish, which is a slippery slope with a disastrous ending, as witnessed in the dramatic fall of the Roman Empire."

-- Claims same-sex marriage is part of the "new world order"

-- Does not believe in evolution

-- Says current "political correctness" is like Nazi Germany (43:30-44:55): "As we've evolved more and more into a politically correct situation, we don't even want to talk about what the family is supposed to do versus what the school is supposed to do—what the responsisiblities are of fathers and mothers—it really has degenerated to that level, not because our whole soiciety has degenerated to that level but because the loudest voices, and particularly the media, has tried to pretty much force that upon people and people have not stood up.  People have not spoken up.  Ya know, this country was supposed to be for, of, and by the people, but the people have become silent—very much like the people in Nazi Germany were silent.  Most of them did not agree with what Hitler was doing, but they kept their mouth shut and you see what happened.  And exactly the same thing will happen to the freedoms that we enjoy in America and the kind of nation that we've had if people don't speak up.  They need to rise up.  They need to say to political correctness: 'Take a hike!  This is who we are.  This is what we believe in.  These are the principles that allowed us to become the pinnacle nation in the world record time, and we are not about to throw them out the window for the sake of political correctness.'" 

-- Responded to criticism about his comments linking homosexuality to NAMBLA and bestiliaty by accusing liberals of racism: “They’re the most racist people there are”...“Because they put you in a little category, a box: ’You have to think this way, how could you dare come off the plantation?’”

-- Says same-sex marriage is "finger-in-your-eye-to-God" territory
