  1. An educated black man with an inferiority complex. His statements are immoral. What a cheap way to try and get membership to the golf club.

    1. “Are not morals relative to each individual? You cannot assert that what you believe is not moral must also not be moral for others.”

      It appears to me that you are giving Dr Benjamin Carson a free pass for making just such an assertion, that his moral code must be applied to people other than himself, for no other reason than that he is being criticised for his assertion.

    2. Here on planet earth the lesson is one of growth, so we all take on our own moral perspective.
      So where does someone stand on the ladder of ethics when they use rhetoric to advocate hate and division? Lower rung I would think.

      1. gay sex????

        Some say wrong, some say right. Who is correct and why do their morals trump the other side?

    3. ‘…On which authority do you call his standards immoral? Is there a higher source of wisdom from which you receive this standard? If not , then it is merely your view…’

      i would borrow ur quote and use it to reply to mr carson’s intellectually impotent views

    4. kettle, pot…

    Carson gave a rather Fruity defence.

    What a waste of an education. Some Neurosurgeon, who appears to be totally brainless.

    I would have thought, in order to be a Neurosurgeon, you might just need to have a few cells atleast.

      Most brain surgery ends in retardation.

      Is that why you are an advocate of it you sick shit.

        Don’t feed the mindless troll Dave. He’s a deeply closeted self-loather to keep coming here to get off by agitating such spurious drivel. A sad case of O’Brien syndrome.

  3. He sould not list bananas with apples, oranges or peaches either. A banana is a herb, not a fruit. What an ignorant dog.

    1. Most people would disagree with you there, as does the OED:

      1. Technically a banana plant is not a tree, all the other fruits grow on trees.

      2. Is a banana a fruit or a herb?
        Both. A banana (the yellow thing you peel and eat) is undoubtedly a fruit (containing the seeds of the plant: see ‘Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?), though since commercially grown banana plants are sterile, the seeds are reduced to little specks. The banana plant is called a ‘banana tree’ in popular use, but it’s technically regarded as a herbaceous plant (or ‘herb’), not a tree, because the stem does not contain true woody tissue.

  4. Since this neurosurgeon is so keen on definitions, it’d be interesting to know how he’d define equality.

    Somehow it comes as little surprise that he’s contemplating a career in US politics.

  5. Always sad to see black people in line with conservatives, many of whom believed just 40 years ago (and some still do) that blacks are inferior because of their colour….

  6. The problem isn’t that he’s comparing “apples and oranges (and apparently bananas)”.

    The problem is he said that “apples are bad, like oranges, and bananas”.

    So yes, those apples SHOULD be offended at being grouped in with oranges and bananas, and lumped together into a group of “bad things”.

    The man doesn’t have enough neurons in his own brain to be a neurosurgeon. Either that or he’s been practising on himself.

  7. He may be effective at his job as a neurosurgeon but that seems to be where his intelligence begins and ends, now that he’s shot his mouth off the whole world knows he’s not the brightest crayon in the box.

    He is another cynical con artist playing the cards he knows will win the hand with the ignorant and the religiously delusional who will vote for him. Be assured he does not believe one single word of it himself but when money is involved he will do and say anything to further his political ambitions.

  9. Irresponsible hate filled man who must be struck off the list of doctors in case he does irreparable harm to a patient.

    Clear sign that this particular neurosurgeon desperately needing to see a psychotherapist, me thinks!

    What an appalling excuse for a human being.

    1. Jock S. Trap 31 Mar 2013, 12:38pm

      Mine clearly coz unlike you and this doc I don’t feel the need to justify my existence… I just get on with life and enjoy it!

      1. theotherone 31 Mar 2013, 5:04pm

        just ignore them, they’re an idiot soon to banned from the site

        1. Jock S. Trap 1 Apr 2013, 12:18pm

          We can but hope!!

  11. It boggles my brain to understand how someone can become a neurosurgeon and still believe in this complete cr*p.

    How can you go through so much science training and still believe in fairies?

  12. Of course he didn’t mean to equate same-sex marriage, pedophilia, and bestiality — people always link things together in the same sentence when they don’t mean to equate them.

    And why is it every self-styled “conservative” publicly shoves his foot into his mouth up to the knee, and then decides to go into politics?

  13. I wonder who put the notion of politics into his head? And who offered a helping hand his ascent?

  14. “I wasn’t equating those things…” – This is a well educated guy – he knew exactly what he was saying. If he didn’t want people to equate these things, then why mention NAMBLA and bestiality at all? It’s a obviously transparent attempt to diminish gay marriage. Now he’s backtracking because people have called him on it.

    i don’t normaly do such things but i just reported all the posts by ‘moral educator’

    not just a religious freak but a nasty excuse for a human being too

    1. It’s just a pitiable narcissistic psychotic temporarily off its meds. It’s venomous frothing is deeply tiresome and rather disturbing, but really it’s best not to get too worried about it.

  16. Republican leaders like Dr.Carson who whips up hatred of gays with images of child molesters, Bobby Jindal who participated in an exorcism as a young man, and Marc Rubio who is skeptical about evolution and the Earth being older than six thousand years all are entitled to their religious beliefs, but when the next election comes they surely will seem more exotic than Mitt Romney’s magic underwear.

    I doubt any of them will be elected President.

  17. it just shows that educated people are bigots too
