Denouement: Ben Carson gives up - fucks up

Ben Carson

Retired neurosurgeon and likely pseudo-candidate for president Ben S. Carson just doesn't know what he doesn't know. He also doesn't know how to shut up. According to our friends at the Washington Times Carson is quoted as saying:
“I also believe that our Constitution protects everybody, regardless of their beliefs, and that includes people who are gay,” Mr. Carson continued. “I have no problem with them doing whatever they want to do. I’m just not willing to change the definition of marriage for anybody, because once you do that, you have to change it for everyone else who comes along. Why would we want to do that? We have something that’s worked for thousands of years to create a nurturing environment for raising children. And I think that’s where we ought to leave it.”

He added: “I simply have decided I’m not going to really talk about that issue anymore, because every time I gain momentum, the liberal press says, ‘let’s talk about gay rights.’ I’m just not going to fall for that anymore.”
OK Ben, you are a physician. You are supposed to understand this stuff. Christianity, Scientology, Buddhism — those are “beliefs.” Being gay is a sexual orientation. If you are confused you might want to read the journals of your own professional organization, the AMA.

Getting back to marriage equality your argument is what exactly? The slippery slope to what? Who is in line after gays? Who might be “everyone else who comes along?” Oh and by the way, if your pseudo candidacy (along with Trump and Huckabee) is to gain any traction at all, you are going to need to talk about gay rights. Your constituency of ignorant nitwits eats this shit up.
