CARSON: Well, my thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and 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. So he, it’s not something that is against gays, it’s against anybody who wants to come along and change the fundamental definitions of pillars of society. It has significant ramifications. [via Dave Weigel]
IT NEVER seems to take long before these right wing extremists reveal they haven’t a clue about conservatism. The latest Republican darling didn’t take long to prove he’s another unfit person to be on the political stage.
As a liberal, live and let live seems the best motto for life.
Anyone who is a real conservative should know this ideology begins with staying out of people’s personal lives, because it’s not where government should be.
But that ship sailed with the immoral minority and Rev. Jerry Falwell, Phyllis Schlafly and their followers. Since then Republicans have been trying to dig themselves out of a cultural hole that always had time against them. From Rush Limbaugh to Sean Hannity, where Ben Carson got into trouble, to Bill O’Reilly and many others on the right, they all represent a dying breed.
Ben Carson blew it big time this week, but he just couldn’t help himself.
