Obama critic apologizes for
his ´poorly chosen words´
on gay marriage

The Hill [Washington DC], by Alexandra Jaffe

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/6/2013 12:18:19 PM

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, considered by some to be a potential Republican contender for president, apologized to Johns Hopkins University for the "poorly chosen words" he used in expressing his opposition to gay marriage last month.“I am sorry for any embarrassment this has caused,” Carson said in the letter, reported in New York Magazine.(Snip) "Although I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman, there are much less offensive ways to make that point. I hope all will look at a lifetime of service over some poorly chosen words.” Carson will remain as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins,

Conservatives need to learn to not apologize. It just emboldens our enemies.

Please, Carson...you could have couched your views in *any* format or vocabulary - and the gays would *still* go into ´outrage mode!´ Its what they do...when they´re not advocating for higher HIV rates among adolescents.

And again...where are the gay *polygamists*? Not like they´re monogamous as a rule anyway...

Never apologize for telling the truth, only apologize if it offended someone & only then if they scream so loud it hurts your ears.

Please Dr. Carson, don´t encourage the morons. Take the high road, and speak of solutions. Don´t seek the support of your enemies, you won´t get it.

Gay marriage is only a ploy to destroy marriage. Gay is code for promiscuous. Ask Bathhouse Barry about Love. Reggie Love.

Dear Doctor Carson,
Called strike one on you. Don´t strike out. The left is pitching you curves and screwballs as you stand at the plate with your Truth bat on your shoulder. They plan on striking you out by all this foolish apologizing. You gotta swing that bat. Swing your Truth bat and hit a homer, or at least startle them with a slick bunt and get on first base. Then you can really rattle the leftist´s pitcher, because he won´t know what you´ll do next.
Love,
Us

"If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what State restrictions could ever exist? Meaning, what State restrictions with respect to the number of people, with respect to -- that could get married -- the incest laws, the mother and the child, assuming they are of age -- I can -- I can accept that the State has probably an overbearing interest on -- on protecting the a child until they´re of age to marry, but what´s left?"

I hold Doctor Carson in high regard. Although I am sorry he issued an apology. He was making a point and a good one. If the definition of marriage is changed to include same sex couples there is no way to exclude other groups who will demand the same ´right´ .

Apparently the apology was the price Dr. Carson had to pay to be able to remain
as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins, which is quite an honor for him to be.

The students with the petition to remove him as speaker were not going away until
he made nice in a public way.

Those who naively believe that this guy can run directly for the presidency with no
political experience prior to such a run will learn sooner or later the realities.

Remember the Flavor of the Month starting in Summer 2011 in the GOP?
Bachmann made a splash in Iowa. Cain won a straw poll in Florida or somewhere.
People came and went on a regular basis but none of them lasted. Why doncha axe
President Rick Perry how all of that is workin´ out for him?
And he´s been Guber of a huge state for more than a decade, and never lost a race
in Tejas... Yawn....

Try being more realistic than the very liberoid fools we all criticize.
It might behoove the GOP cause.
Falling for the lasest flash in the pan is pretty silly.
Dr. Carson seems nice, but other medical doctors have done far better in politics...
Howard Dean and Bill Frist, for example.
Axe ´em how they´ve enjoyed bein´ prez.
How´s that White Hut workin´ out for ya?

To all the crowd on the right who still have visions of a black face conservative messiah then good luck with this latest.
I still think Colin Powell, Condelezza Rice and any other what you may call a Republican they will dissappoint you.
I´m not into further ´black experiments´ or support Mr. Carson he just proved how ´flexible´ he is. Forget all the president talk and think more of a Ted Cruz take no prisoner type of person.
Dr. Carson blew his good points with the apology.

It´s hard to know what "well-chosen" words are at any given moment.

Dr. Carson is learning the hard way that liberals will eat him alive if he doesn´t stand firm. He´s probably not used to this criticism. He´s been admired most of his professional life.

He´ll get there.

The argument that Dr. Carson was trying to make was that it is a mistake to base the marriage law on sexual identity rather than gender. Sexual identity is a complex mental phenomenon that can be shaped and modified by experience, subjective preferences, and culture. Gender is a property of every human and is defined by objective genetic encoding for "male" and "female". Equating sexual identity and gender is like equating software and hardware, they are fundamentally different things. The governed can change the definition of marriage if they choose to equate software with hardware but as Dr. Carson tried to point out the possible variations are infinite and the law becomes meaningless.

He didn´t apologize for his views but for how he articulated them. I think he put being a Christian first and wanted to soften his words by apologizing for how, not what he said.

"A soft word turneth away wrath."

Every human being, even one as incredibly intelligent, creative, and accomplished as Carson, will make a mistake every 60 years or so. I agree with everything he said, and I don´t believe in apologizing to liberals either, but I stand with Dr. Carson.

I researched his background and watched the movie Gifted Hands. Very much recommend seeing it, and reading about his life story. Amazing man and very cultured.

The truth is, the leftist media, political powerhouse (right and left), and the Hollywood culture machine will attempt to destroy America´s heroes no matter how perfect they are. They did it to Palin and many others, and of course now Carson. We should stand up with our convictions and with people like Carson and Palin instead of with do-nothing, next-in-line politicians who nobody would ever have heard about without their family weath and connections.

I´ve seen liberals even call Mother Theresa evil. I mean, come on, trying to placate the liberals with McCain, Romney, Bushes and Roves means leaving your principles at the door, in my opinion.

#23 makes several reality points about the attempts to find a conservative black face messiah. Why is that so necessary?
Is it the desire to atone for past prejudice or simply to counter the label racist.
A man of any color should be honored for his particular gifts and success using them but that doesn´t automatically adorn him with the same ability in every endeavor.
He now has shown he will back down to preserve his medical reputation and position thus he has proven he can´t become that counter savior anticipated.
Don´t push him.

And so it begins. I´m trying to decide where conservatives need to put the most effort. Is it the education system, or is it in developing spines of steel? We keep getting beaten because we let the left define the narrative. We must stop letting ourselves (and that means our public officials) be held hostage by leftist bullies.

Dr Carson has been very clear from the beginning the he is an INDEPENDENT. He believes in common sense, if that agrees with conservative principles then fine. He has not claimed to be a conservative, GOP or Dem.
Be thankful that God has sent such a wonderful person. To speak commonsense to those who will hear at this time. Stop putting everything into the political point of view. Dr Carson is a gift. He may be a short term gift or something else. Cannot we just appreciate someone for who they are and the gifts they offer?

Hey! Dr, Carson chooses to correct phraseology... and the purists pile on the condemnation wagon.

THIS is exactly what the Lefties expect. WE are the ones who abandon those outstanding people on our side.

Have you ever seen the Dem/Lefties do this to "one of their own"???

He needs our support AND encouragement. He has said --must be exhorted to re-assert-- that the "liberals" are the ones who censor speech by means of political correctness.

Please, Dr. Carson, have courage. Keep praying. A great many of us respect and honor you.

# 37 And where has that gotten Allan West ?
What´s he doing these days, since the voters
rejected him ?
Dr Carson is all over the place on gay marriage.
He appears to be tailoring his remarks
to the interviewer.
When interviewed by the Daily Caller on March 19,
" Ben Carson´s Most Surprising Policy Positions " Carson said this about gays.
On the topic of gay marriage, Carson said he doesn’t believe “anyone from any group has the right to redefine a major pillar of society.”
But, he added, “any two consenting adults have the right to formalize a relationship between them.”
And then he came out for amnesty.
On the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, Carson says he would
”of course allow [illegal immigrants] to have a pathway to citizenship. That’s the only humane
and reasonable thing to do.”
And he announced that he was anti war, he
opposed both the invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11 and war in Iraq.
Maybe Limbaugh and the others touting Carson should get to actually know Dr Carson´s positions
before they elevate him to Ronald Reagan status.

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep.

Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago.

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Helicopters, airplanes and firefighters have been struggling to contain wildfires that have killed 15 people, devastated more than 2,000 homes and left 8,000 homeless in Valparaiso, Chile. A 15th body was found today and the toll of destroyed homes has risen to more than 2,150. As smoke rose from smoldering ruins all over the picturesque coastal city, many compared the scene to Dante´s inferno. Scroll down for video - Some people made their way home after days without sleep, only to discover ruins. The fires, so hot they created their own fierce winds, consumed a few entire neighborhoods.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
