Skip to comments.Ben Carson: ‘I apologize’ for gay remark
Posted on 03/29/2013 2:41:28 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Neurosurgeon Ben Carson apologized Friday for comments he made about gay marriage on Sean Hannitys TV show earlier this week.
I think in terms of what was said on Sean Hannitys show, that was taken completely out of context and completely misunderstood in terms of what I was trying to say, Carson told MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell. As a Christian, I have a duty to love all people and that includes people who have other sexual orientations, and I certainly do, and never had any intention of offending anyone If anyone was offended, I apologize to you.
The John Hopkins doctor came under scrutiny when he appeared to liken homosexuality to pedophilia and bestiality, sparking the outrage of the LGBT community.
My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. Its a well-established fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesnt matter what they are, they dont get to change the definition, the doctor, who is the director of pediatric neurosurgery, said on Hannitys show Tuesday.
His comments also led to a petition by students at Johns Hopkins University, who want him to be removed as commencement speaker, as was initially planned. Students, colleagues and the media alike have harshly criticized Carson for his choice of words.

I’ve no patience with gays any more. As a group, I despise them and wish they’d go back into the closet where they came from. And I’m not ashamed to say it.
The lefts war on Mr Carson is ramping up. The left is nothing but a destroying force. Pure evil.
I don't see anything there that merits an apology whatsoever. They DON'T get to change the definition! That is -- and has to be -- our stance.
AND? What is the controversy? The sex positive agenda believes that ALL sexual pairings should be celebrated without moral judgments. They preach that orgasm is a birthright to be enjoyed at every age regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).
That slippery slope keeps slipping. RECALL that the gay mafia said that this was ONLY about the activities of consenting ADULTS in PRIVATE. Here it is in schools being pushing on MINORS and in the courts for MARRIAGE and ADOPTION. When does the child consent to being brought into an alternative lifestyle home?
Stalinists lie. Always. This is the "smash the patriarchy" crowd.
Heh! Just thinking of that quote! My fave show.
Why apologize..what he said was absolutely RIGHT..homosexuality is a perverted sexual behavior..period!! I dont see the media demanding that sleaze ball Jason Biggs apologize for trashing 1.2 billion Catholics on twitter with his disgusting comment about the Pope..but if you say something that is TRUE about gays, all hell breaks loose. I am sick of this crap..I am not going to bow down to these fruitcakes
I heard him on Fox today. Now 8 students graduating from Johns Hopkins are demanding he not be the featured speaker at their graduation. We have a generation of homosexual-loving lunatics that will be running our country.
If I was Dr. Carson, I would tell them all to, well, you know.
So sick of this homo stuff. Really sick of it. We are the normal people, yet we go around apologizing to the perverts. And he didn’t say anything different that Sotomayor when she asked what other entities would demand marriage.
And Megan Kelly is a moron.
I agree - NEVER apologize. It’s a sign of weakness. The Gay/ Libs are ever looking for a chink in the armor.
I once told a group of homos that there was nothing normal about people who lick, ingest, and have sex with human feces. I said the same to a group of hs teachers. Stand up. or these cretins will destroy our society.
Political Rule #1: If you intend to run for a high public office, bridle your tongue.
A seemingly innocent utterance has done in many a political career.
They’re misogynist scumbags that equate the vagina to the anus.
They already successfully changed the definition of the word “gay.” Why wouldn’t they think they could train their sights on the word “marriage” and have similar success?
Silver lining is maybe ignorant people will google ‘nambla’ and begin to see the real forces behind gay aggression.
Sounds to me that Carson was shown the political light that anything goes as well as that he is not a total social conservative. Question! To his admirers does this make him better POTUSA material?
I’m guessing history is repeating itself. There have been many other times during human history in which sodomites of all types ‘pushed’ the limits of tolerance and the larger public was forced to respond.
I will never forget the gay parade I happened upon in the early 80’s in Chicago. The participants were mostly goading the passers by and being outrageous was a requirement. It was like a organized temper tantrum.
I see their leadership as narcissists who will do anything to get the respect they think they deserve. The saddest result are those ‘gays’ who are brainwashed into thinking that homosexual activity is the only life available to them.
You said chink...better apologize. :)
Seriously though, I’m tired of hyper-sensitive a-holes complaining about everything. I will never apologize for something I’m not sorry about.
His primary point was that NO group ('gay', straight or otherwise) should get the right to change the definition of marriage. And he went on to effectively support that exact point under the hostile questioning of Andrea Mitchell.
