Somebody save Ben Carson from himself—or his campaign.
He is a man I admire. He is perhaps the most decorated living private citizen we have. If my life includes a quarter of the accomplishments of his, I will be more than satisfied when they finally put me in the grave. We certainly need someone of his stature on the front lines of the battle for the soul of America.
However, if the month of April is any indication, we’re not going to be needing him running for president.
Carson isn’t expected to formally declare until May 4th. Yet sadly as that date approaches, Carson is mysteriously undermining the very reasons why he captured the attention of so many patriots since he confronted President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast.
First, there was Carson posting on Facebook that Easter wasn’t about Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for the sins of the world, and ensuing resurrection proving he was the only Son of God. Rather, Carson posted Easter was about “acceptance” and said Christians and Muslims are children of the same God. That, of course, would be news to Christians and Muslims alike. Since one side says the basis for their faith is Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and the other side claims he was never crucified in the first place. One side says “God has no son” and the other begs to differ. Christians and Muslims could both be wrong, but they can’t both be right unless you’re bi-polar and have no problems with glaring contradictions.
That message, which any liberal Unitarian could’ve posted, was lambasted by numerous Iowa Caucus voters and activists when I shared it on my Facebook wall.
