I like Doc Carson, agreeing with many of the thoughts he’s shared in public, admiring his life’s many accomplishments, especially his determination early in life that lead to his successes.
Though after making comments about gay people I did some looking into Dr. Carson’s background and I’m glad I did.
I gotta learn to investigate before shooting my mouth off…at my age I should have learned this lesson by now.
Great man with many admirable accomplishments beginning early in life, though after learning he supports creationist cults I realized his comments about gays people were not guffaws.
In my opinion Dr. Carson was protecting his god, believing his perfect god could not create gay people.
I believe Mother Nature imbues most humans with opposite sex attractions, but who is to say Mother Nature did not also create people who are attracted to their gender?
I learned early in life our brains are not wired or develop in exactly the same manner, when the girl seated in front of me in Algebra class correctly computed and solved equations in her head while I was muddled down with pencil and paper, and still not finding the correct answer.
Obviously she and I were wired differently. Today this difference between us, the manner in which our brains were wired or developed, leads me to believe that embracing same sex attractions is very natural for some people.
When CNN questioned him about his ‘Americans resemble Nazis’ statement, after he wrote and published a book a titled ‘America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great’, Dr. Carson, imo, dodged the question.
The first time I listened to Doc Carson I instantly admired his tone and attitude.
Though after learning of his comments about my peaceful gay neighbors and friends I learned his mind is clouded by a sickness attributed to religious beliefs that deny respect to peaceful people and more importantly, disregard America’s basic beliefs that All Men Are Created Equal and have a right to peacefully pursue their vision for Life, Liberty and Happiness.
I tend do dismiss/reject potential candidates who in my opinion are hypocritical and embrace anti-American beliefs.
I’m not casting Dr. Carson aside just yet, I know all his competitors are believers or feign belief in a supernatural being. Just have to figure out which is least affected by their beliefs in the supernatural.
There are thousands of abandon, depressed, neglected, unloved children/developing human beings living/existing in our country.
I seriously doubt foster children looking for love, safety and consistency in their lives really care if the people willing to adopt, raise and nurture them are gay or hetero.
Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect
Victims of Child Abuse:
Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.
Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.
Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.
Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.
In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.
Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.
“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say
And it’s not your business anyway”
