Former presidential candidate Ben Carson spoke last Friday at the Pensmore National Symposium on Religious Liberty at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri, and had a few choice words regarding same-sex marriage.
In a press conference following his speech about how "the peace that we experience now will be a memory only," he explained that the only thing saving the United States from the "utter chaos" is opposition to same-sex marriage.
"Why must they change [the definition of marriage]? I believe the reason is, if you can change the word of God in one area, then you can change it in every area. It's the camel's nose under the tent, and it will just be an avalanche of one thing after the other.
"We won't have anything that we can use as our reference point because we will have thrown out God's word. It'll be every man for himself, every man deciding for himself what is right and what is wrong, and that can't possibly lead to a good place."
Spoken like a true conservative. Carson made sure to follow this up with an assertion that religious freedom is very important, and that God, "does not care what color you are."
Carson also made sure not to leave "the transgender stuff" out of his speech, which he labeled as "absurd" and "the same silliness as safe spaces" on college campuses.
Make sense? Yeah, not really.
