CNN’s Chris Cuomo tried to bait Dr. Ben Carson into another “controversial” remark about homosexuality. Cuomo called the homosexual lobby’s efforts to use the government to punish Christians for opposing the lifestyle a “very important issue” that Dr. Carson wouldn’t be able to “duck” as president.
(Of course, Cuomo doesn’t frame the issue this way, but that’s exactly what’s happening.)
“I would like to see as much emphasis on the rights of Christians and people who are members of the faith community as there is to some of the other groups,” Dr. Carson said. “I would like to see a much greater conversation about Christians and their rights. Why are we not talking about that?”
“I think we are right now, doctor,” Cuomo said. Dr. Carson certainly was, but Cuomo was not. As a liberal, he’s pushing the homosexual lobby’s agenda to secure special rights above the country’s founding principle of religious freedom. Cuomo said, with a straight face, that homosexuals get “far less legal protection under the Constitution” than Christians.
That’s not a misstatement; it’s a lie. Homosexuals have the same civil rights as everyone else. Those who want to “marry” someone of the same sex want to impose their views on Christians, whose God calls homosexuality a sin.
“The important thing is for us as a nation to recognize that all citizens of the United States are protected by our Constitution,” Dr. Carson said. “We need to stop deciding that one group versus another group is the flavor of the day.”
