Dr. Ben Carson No ‘Extra Rights’ for LGBT Americans

In his Senate confirmation hearing, Dr. Ben Carson made it perfectly clear that he believes in equal treatment for all. The doctor is a conservative Christian, but that does not lead him to deny rights to any group. He also does not believe that any group should receive preferential treatment. Do you support the good doctor?

As Written By Tim Devaney for The Hill:

Trump Cabinet pick Ben Carson reiterated his belief Thursday that LGBT Americans don’t deserve “extra rights.”

During Carson’s confirmation hearing, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) pressed the Housing and Urban Development nominee about whether he would enforce LGBT protections in the public housing sector.

“Of course, I would enforce all the laws of the land,” Carson responded. “Of course, I think all Americans should be protected by the law.”

“What I have said before is I don’t think anyone should get ‘extra rights,’” he added.

Carson’s remarks mirror those from his 2014 CPAC speech: “Of course gay people should have the same rights as everyone else, but they don’t get extra rights,” Carson said at …..

    I agree with Dr. Benjamin Carson

    Those Dems on the committee were some real geniuses. They asked the incoming CIA director how he would deal with global warming. Brilliant.

    Good for Dr. Carson; he’s certainly taking a better stand then Jeff Sessions. But really? No EXTRA rights!?! When did capital criminals deserve ANY rights? Would he say the same thing about murderers or kidnappers, including rapists? After all, all three are capital crimes according to the only one who had the authority to determine what is and what is not capital crimes.

      Ted R. Weiland’s real agenda is to recruit the unwary for his campaign to abolish the U.S. Constitution.

      Grundune is a Mormon who rejects the Christ of the Bible and the Word of God (Psalm 19:7-11; John 1:1-3, 14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 John 1:7-11; etc.) and whose Doctrine and Covenants demand he defend the Constitution as divinely inspired (D&C 101:80, etc.), much the same as with the Book of Mormon. He knows if the Constitution is exposed for the biblically seditious document it is, that the entire Mormon house of cards comes tumbling down.

      He also rejects that Christ is our (ONLY) King now, despite a plethora of New Testament passages that prove otherwise. See blog article “The Kingdom is Not of the World But in the World” at http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/objection-the-kingdom-is-not-of-this-world/.

      Tragically, many Christians are more inclined to follow Doctrine and Covenants than they are the Bible when it comes to the Constitution.

        Grundune knows all too well why I don’t respond to him directly. When he first began responding to my posts, I treated him as someone who honestly disagreed with me, which is his or anyone’s prerogative.
        However, it quickly became evident I was dealing with fool who had no compunction about libeling me (e.g., accusing me of being financed by George Soros). Thus, in hopes he might yet repent, I responded to him in obedience to Proverbs 26:5.

        But you can deal with a “tar baby” only so long without getting “tar” all over you (just like brer Rabbit
        did). Thus, the point came when it became apparent that I needed to take my marching orders from Proverbs 26:4 and Matthew 7:6.

          However it quickly became evident that Grundune asked questions I couldn’t answer without exposing my real agenda which was to get the U.S. Constitution abolished so a Christian dictator could be installed.

          How was I to know that Grundune was a veteran who took an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. He crushed me so I immediately stopped responding. I was afraid my “ministry” would be exposed and I’d have to get a real job.

    • Grundune

      I noticed you didn’t take issue with my charge that you want to abolish the U.S. Constitution.

      I now charge you with lying about Mormons. Bet you don’t try and refute that either.

      Someday you’ll realize that your personal attacks against others coupled with your failure to rebut compelling charges against your theories expose you as weak and your theories as stupid.

    The LGBT group is a bunch of overprivileged, arrogant and tyrannical fools. “All are equal but some are more equal than others” is their mantra but they do not even deserve any “righs” in the first place let alone extra rights.

    Finally, common sense. Everybody isn’t a victim.
