BALTIMORE, April 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Famed pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson announced Wednesday that he will not speak at graduation ceremonies for students at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and School of Education.
Dr. Carson, who rose from poverty to become one of the leading neurosurgeons in the world, was slated to give the commencement speech at Johns Hopkins, where he has practiced since 1977. But homosexual activists, angry about comments Carson made in favor of traditional marriage, mounted a campaign to force the university to disinvite him.
Carson, 61, discussed his views on same-sex “marriage” last week last month on Fox News, expressing his concern that a redefinition of marriage to include homosexual couples could be a slippery slope.
“Marriage is between a man and a woman,” Carson told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “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.”
He clarified his statement was not aimed “against gays; it’s against anybody who wants to come along and change the fundamental definitions of pillars of society. It has significant ramifications.”
Last week, medical school dean Paul Rothman released a statement calling Carson’s remarks “hurtful, offensive,” and “inconsistent with the culture of our institution.”
He agreed to meet with student supporters of same-sex “marriage,” who said Carson’s views made him an unacceptable graduation speaker
The comment that I made on KiwiBlog was,
So, even a leading neurosurgeon, if he doesn’t have the “right” opinions on same-sex marriage, will ostracised in this brave new world where black becomes white, dogs become cats and idiots think that women like anal sex.
When people say that we shouldn't worry, that homosexuality won't become compulsory, they're deflecting the argument from where it is actually going - compulsory acceptance, so ipso facto homosexuality becomes compulsory. We won't be allowed to act in any way that shows that we believe that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman, nor state these beliefs publicly as Dr. Carson is finding out. Nor will we be allowed to act in any way that shows that we believe that homosexual behaviour is morally wrong, either.
Even the silly argument on KiwiBlog around women apparently liking anal sex shows that homosexual sexual behaviour is being pressured onto women through pornography, which is really homoerotica (made by men for men). There is a lot of stuff that men learn from pornography that they then take into the bedroom with their girlfriends or wives that women just don't like, but put up with, because they think they have to, and some of that is homosexual in nature and women are being pressured to participate in unnatural acts because they have been normalised through the watching of porn.
Connected to all this is the fact that men who watch the most porn are the most likely to support same-sex marriage, yet pornography is a marriage destroyer and causes post-traumatic stress in their wives when they find out about their habit.
Other recent stories on how people are being affected by their views on same-marriage are these:
- A woman taken to court for refusing to do flowers for a male/male "wedding"
“Under the Consumer Protection Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against customers on the basis of sexual orientation,” Ferguson said. “If a business provides a product or service to opposite-sex couples for their weddings, then it must provide same-sex couples the same product or service.”
The state of Washington is seeking $2,000 in fines for every reported violation, as well as a permanent injunction requiring the shop to violate its conscience or stop selling flowers for wedding ceremonies.
- A priest whose Catholic views on homosexuality, marriage and abortion have resulted in gay students trying to get him removed as chaplain for an American university
The students complain that Fr. Greg Shaffer has spoken out against gay “marriage” and abortion, and has counseled homosexual Catholic students to embrace celibacy. They said they were disturbed when Fr. Shaffer quoted the Book of Romans and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
