Dr Ben Carson

Ben Carson on the Decline & Fall of the U.S.A


It is good that Dr. Ben Carson (emeritus professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at the John Hopkins School of Medicine) begin to weigh in with a column over at townhall.com. Last October Dr. Carson spoke at a fundraiser for the Illinois Family Institute and joked about being accused of supporting a hate group. The fact that he realizes that the Southern Poverty Law Center is a joke means he’s ahead of the game as he wades through the morass that is American politics.

In that speech for IFI (which you can watch here) he said this:

Now it is true that we are the pinnacle nation in the world. Not the first pinnacle nation — there have been others before us. Ancient Egypt. Ancient Greece. Ancient Rome. Great Britain. France. Spain. Number one, going to be there forever — they thought. What happened to each of them? The same thing. They became enamored of sports and entertainment, lifestyles of the rich and famous, they tolerated corruption and they lost their moral compass and they went right down the tubes.

And some people say that can’t happen to the United States. I think an honest appraisal would demonstrate that it’s already happening in spades. And the question is — can we stop it? Can we be the first pinnacle nation in the history of the world to learn from the mistakes of others and to reverse course. I think we can do it.

We pray you’re right, Dr. Carson. We pray you’re right.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
