Dr. Ben Carson to leave medicine, hints at political future during CPAC speech







He doesn't surprise me at all. Dr. Carson is part of another group that the Republican party is thick with. Theocrats. Until they stop trying to insert their religious beliefs into our government they will not get my vote. I don't care what he personally believes, but when he gets up at a political convention and starts spouting off and using his religious beliefs to explain his views on government then he goes into the bin with others like Pat Roberson and Rick Perry. I don't care what their race is either. Black, White, Hispanic, Asian. If they are Theocrats they are not who I want to see leading this country. I am sure there are many that will disagree. There are many that want our elected officials to push a religious agenda.


""When I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe, God, and he's given us a system. It's called tithe. Now we don't necessarily have to do 10%, but it's the principle," Carson said, adding that the progressive tax system is the "kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands."---Dr Carson


Dr. Carson does not believe in the fact of evolution. He believes that those who do lack morals and ethics.


“By believing we are the product of random acts, we eliminate morality and the basis of ethical behavior.”--Dr. Ben Carson


I have voted against Democratic candidates who hold these views and want to incorporate their religious beliefs into our laws. I believe that the majority of Americans are smart enough to know that the day we become a theocracy is the day we have failed at achieving the free nation our founding fathers worked so hard to create.



I'm curious Jank do you hold liberal politicians to the same standard when they talk of a government influenced by the social gospel? When President Obama quoted scripture at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast to support tax increases was he wrong? Do you think he seeks to recreate America based on his views of scripture?


Honestly there are few folks who really seek a theocracy. But politicians of all stripes bring their personal beliefs, religious and otherwise to policy discussions and they all have the right to do that. Its really nothing to worry about as long as we have a constitutional republic which protects the rights of all.
