Dr. Ben Carson: So-Called ‘Gay Marriage’ Is Like 2+2=5
Speaking with Newsmax TV host Ed Berline on Mid-Point about his latest book One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future, world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson discussed some of the “biggest, contentious issues in America right now.” The popular conservative star is currently making the rounds on several media outlets, fueling speculation about his presidential aspirations for 2016. Dr. Carson called for “compromise” in the heated same-sex “marriage” debate and once again reaffirmed his belief that true “marriage is between a man and woman.”
During Monday’s conversation, the retired director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital began with an appeal to abandon “political correctness” and replace it with “civil discourse.” Dr. Carson also said that the key to constructive conversation requires that all “people have to be willing to understand that not everybody thinks the same way that they do.”
“A lot of people say, ‘Well, Carson’s a homophobe because he believes that marriage is between a man and a woman.’ That’s ridiculous,” he protested. The juvenile, playground-style name-calling tactics of the “gay” lobby come straight from the nefarious, scheming strategies of Saul Alinsky, who dedicated his book Rules For Radicals to Lucifer, “the very first radical.” Saul Alinsky’s work is considered the bible for Liberalism, and in an earlier op-ed for the Washington Times, Dr. Carson explained that “the original radical community organizer and societal change agent [Alinsky], says you should never have a rational discussion with your opponent. Doing so would humanize him, and your goal is to demonize him. With this tactic, he states that you can incur your opponent’s wrath, causing him to respond angrily, and in many cases, irrationally, which then provides an opportunity to use that irrational response against him.”
Not only did Hillary Clinton admire Alinsky so much that she wrote her senior thesis at Wellesley College on his demented way of thinking, the homosexual activists have also taken a page right out of the same playbook as well. Rather than engage in reasonable debate with their opponents, they prefer to spew vitriol and hurl epithets such as homophobe, bigot, hater, and anti-gay as if they’re going out of style. And not only that, since they have been unable to win the debate in the arena of ideas or at the ballot box, a complicit and constitutionally-rogue legal system has imposed their deviant agenda by judicial fiat.
Carson also made his stance on marriage abundantly clear when he firmly stated, “I don’t believe that anybody gets to change the definition of something that is a societal pillar and has been there for thousands of years.” But he further added, “I don’t think I can impose my will on any two consenting adults. They can do what they want to do. I’m not going to try to stop them from doing that, but they don’t get to change the definition.” The fact of the matter is that it has never been about telling any individual who they can or can’t love – that’s nothing but a deceptive, but unfortunately effective, homosexual misrepresentation of the pro-natural marriage position. The real issue, however, concerns the alarming homosexual efforts at shredding the dictionary, distorting of the Constitution, creating false rights out of thin air, rewriting civil laws to criminalize deeply held moral convictions, hijacking science to promote a deviant political/social agenda, and eliminating all religious and conscience protections for business owners. As has been said numerous times before, every advance of the militant “gay agenda” comes at the literal expense of true democracy and freedom.
For those homosexuals who are willfully oblivious to the natural order of the genders and obviously ignorant of human physiological compatibility, Carson offered them this helpful analogy:
It’s sort of like a new group of mathematicians that come along, and they say 2+2=5. And the traditionalist say, ‘No, it’s 4, it’s always been 4, it always will be 4.’ And the new ones say, ‘No, we insist that it’s 5.’ So, that the traditionalists say, ‘I’ll tell you what, for you it can can be five; we’re keeping it as 4.’ And then, the new ones say, ‘No, no, it has to be 5 for you, and if it’s not, then you’re a mathosaur or a mathophobe. And basically, that’s the situation we find ourselves in.
Hopefully, this simple lesson in Logic 101 will prove beneficial for those who either slept through their human reproduction class in high school or who are apparently suffering from deficiencies in rationality. Best of all, it doesn’t even take a brain surgeon to figure this out — so long as the fuzzy math of Common Core hasn’t corrupted one’s cognitive abilities.
“I asked a prominent individual in the ‘gay’ community, I said, ‘What position could a person take who believes in traditional marriage that would be satisfactory to you?’” Dr. Carson shared, “And after thinking about it for a while, he said, ‘There is no other position. You have to embrace ‘gay’ marriage. That’s the only position that’s acceptable to us.’ That sounds a little bit like intolerance to me. It sounds like my way-or-the-highway.”
The reason the aforementioned statement “sounds a little bit like intolerance” is because, make no mistake about it, that’s exactly what it is. As Washington Post columnist and homosexual Jonathan Capehart, in a moment of unusual candor, admitted last month in response to comments made by New York Times columnist William Rhoden, “I understand you’re saying that it has to be a two-way conversation. But tolerance, no, is not – it should not be a two-way street. It’s a one-way street.” And many homosexuals actually believe this ridiculous bilge. Tolerance for them is nothing but empty rhetoric. Just as they have futilely attempted to redefine marriage, they have done exactly the same thing when it comes to the word “tolerance.” For a card-carrying gaystapo member, tolerance is actually a liberal “dog whistle” or code language for tyranny or totalitarianism – a person can say whatever they want so long as they don’t offend anyone, especially a homosexual. And any dissenters will be summarily shipped off on the “highway” to the “gay” gulag of sensitivity training — actually, reeducation camp to receive a government-provided, pro-perversity lobotomy.
“And I think even though ‘gays’ suffered a lot of discrimination in the past, and I denounce that in the book. I don’t think that’s the right way to treat anybody, But that doesn’t mean that you get to change everything for everybody else,” he continued. Au contraire, Dr. Carson! Many of the vindictive items on homosexual agenda are designed exactly as vengeance against their supposed oppressors. They actually believe that any perceived, historical discrimination against them provides ample justification for the implementation of their mean-spirited retaliatory “pro-gay” policies.
Unlike the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s in which African Americans united and fought against the truly heinous injustices of racial inequality and unprovoked acts of violence, the homosexual rights movement has no intentions of being peaceful. Nobody should fool themselves, this is a hostile takeover of America.
