This guy is a Seventh day Adventist right, I would have loved to see him being asked does your church really think going to church on Sunday instead of Saturday is the mark of the Beast? But no one would ask him that if he ran as a Republican.

And this, folks, is exactly why when someone goes "I know this guy, he's a really smart dude, a paediatric neurosurgeon, in fact, but he thinks the world is flat and the moon is made of green cheese...."  that you are 100% wrong.  Our paediatric neurosurgeon friend is not smart, no matter how much neuroscience he may be operating on.  He is simply a well trained moron.

he's an artist with a blade with the capacity to memorize and apply vast swaths of medical knowledge.  None of that necessitates an understanding of radiometeic dating, evolution, or astrophysics.  Or maybe Jesus helped him through his totally shiatty childhood and he's bought off on the whole thing on the way to getting mad paper.

KrispyKritter: Dr clearly stated his opinion and was not making comparisons


Carson told FOX News host Sean Hannity Tuesday,

"My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman.

It's a well-established, fundamental pillar of society 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."

I find it ironic that one of the reasons this guy is a "rising star" of conservativism is that Hannity has been promoting him relentlessly and repeatedly inviting him on his program, and it's stuff that Carson said on Hannity that got him into hot water.

Fair enough but SDAs take seperation of church and state VERY seriously. If we have to have a republican we could do much much worse. Ive even known SDAs to support pro choice candidates soley because the religious right was for them.

It's not just that, though. There's the whole "ZOMG SOCIALISM" type who happens to be an astrophysicist, etc. If your brain can be trained to retain all of that data, cause and effect, and about 4.5 millions words worth of jargon, why the fark can't you see that Barack Obama was indeed born in Hawaii and has to be the most incompetent socialist and Muslim usurper in the history of both? Bill ORLY is a prime example of this, though I'm pretty sure he just does it for the money. That doesn't explain your teabagging neighbor, though.

Like I said, I'm retarded and I even I can detect bullsh*t from 3 miles away.

Well, that's the thing:  He got busted lumping gay people in with pedophiles and bestiality lovers and his reaction was to make a hasty apology and verbally shiat his pants in front of the world in the process.

I'm sure it started out sounding logical and rational in his head 'oh, I was just naming off groups, yeah, I wasn't actually comparing them to each other, ho ho ho' and his mouth opened up and fruit fell out and he started babbling and whoops, I crapped my pants.

Somewhere, the rich white leaders of the GOP are crying bitterly.

Dr. Carson did not compare the 3 groups.  He listed the three groups as being those who fall in love but are not man/woman combinations.  In 2006 a Sudanese man married a goat, so there is precedent for his remark.

If I wanted to lessen the political prospects of a certain race, I would promote among that race people I know to be unprepared for public office, those who have opinions that are in direct opposition to the wildly accepted beliefs and principles of the vast majority of the scientific community, have a tendency of overestimation of their competency outside their main field of expertise, and an inability to keep their mouth shut about things outside those areas of expertize.  It is even better if this particular specimen is highly accomplished, as it makes it appear as even the most highly skilled of that race are unsuited to public office.  That this appears to be what the Republicans are doing is just a coincidence.

This is because you can be both intelligent and have some severe mental issues. Our society has created a situation where pathological hate of gays is common. Add to that some cult brainwashing from a young age and you can find a guy who is technically brilliant believe and say some stupid shiat. If a kidnapped person can fall in love with their captors imagine what 18 years of people teaching you about invisible sky man can do.

There are many ways to measure intelligence. People like this have their marbles stacked in too few baskets.

And when I say that Republicans, Nazis and braindead Extremist Muslims and Christian fundamentalists all have an irrational hatred of gays and wish to use governmental means to impose their asinine prejudices, I'm not comparing them,  I'm just making it clear that there is a similarity between the three groups that everyone can see.  No need for anyone to get offended by that statement at all.

He was forced to marry the goat or be killed after he was caught having sex with it.

So I am not sure if that is the precedent you really want.

Duh guys. When Jesus wrote the bible he wrote it in English (not Spanish lol) for a reason. He used the word marriage because that is a man and a woman being married. Before Jesus came there was no marriage. Christians invented it!

Now the gays want to change the definition? I don't think so.
