Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon and recent star of the conservative movement, has apologized for comments on homosexuality that had Johns Hopkins students clamoring for his ouster as their commencement speaker.
During a March 26 TV interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Carson compared homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia in explaining his view that “marriage” can only describe a heterosexual relationship.
“Marriage is between a man and a woman, it’s a well established fundamental pillar of society,” Carson told Hannity. “And no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition, so it’s not something that’s against gays, it’s agianst anybody who wants to come along and change the fundamental definitions of pillars of society–it has significant ramifications.”
Today, Dean of medical Faculty Paul Rothman called the comments “offensive” in an open letter and announced that faculty would meet with graduating students to discuss the matter. Carson, meanwhile, apologized.
Homosexuality should be compared in the way Carson did because these are three dysfunctions related to sexuality.
Dr Carson has nothing to apologize for.
“hurtful, offensive language” is anytime anyone speaks the truth at a liberal environment. No truth allowed.
Heretics must be forced to apologize and burn at the liberal stake.
The normalization of homosexuality must be shoved down everyone’s throats.
That’s all that’s happening here.
And to have this Paul Rothman complain – obviously the dean of medical faculty is the most ignorant faculty of all.
