Ben Carson: Prison Makes People Gay

UMMMMMMM ….  || By FITSNEWS || This website was not impressed with “Republican” neurosurgeon Ben Carson during our recent visit to the 2015 South Carolina Tea Party Coalition convention.  In fact our founding editor somewhat rudely referred to him as a “pre-scandal Bill Cosby parroting political talking points instead of…


|| By FITSNEWS || This website was not impressed with “Republican” neurosurgeon Ben Carson during our recent visit to the 2015 South Carolina Tea Party Coalition convention.  In fact our founding editor somewhat rudely referred to him as a “pre-scandal Bill Cosby parroting political talking points instead of Cliff Huxstable lines.”

Ouch …

This week Carson offered a decidedly non-Huxstable (albeit combustible) viewpoint when he told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that being homosexual was a choice – and that homosexuals had control over their sexual orientation.

“Absolutely,” Carson told Cuomo.  “Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”

Okay … we will ask ourselves that question.  Right after we ask Carson (running in third place in most 2016 GOP presidential polls) what in the hell he was thinking aligning himself with the Mike Huckabee/ Rick Santorum wing of the “Republican” party.

Because that’s the surest way to torpedo any shot at becoming president … not to mention alienating broad swaths of independent voters (to say nothing of younger “Republican” voters).

Seriously Ben … what were you thinking?

Beyond the political ramifications, though, this ongoing GOP obsession with sexual orientation – and other forms of imposed social conservative sanctimony – is just wrong.  It is not up to us to judge … nor is it up to our governments to impose definitions of marriage on religious institutions.

Individual congregations should be permitted to decide who they wish – and do not wish – to marry.  In fact aside from the equal enforcement of rights related to civil unions, government should stay the hell out of this debate entirely – a view we’ve articulated on multiple occasions.

We don’t care if being gay is a choice or something people are “born with,” all we care is that government stop appropriating unto itself “sovereignty” over marriage – one way or the other.

Most of these comments about Curt are paid for by special interest. I mean, can you think of anything dumber than anonymous paid bloggers writing hateful comments about a popular elected official? It is a strategy that backfires and these idiots ought to be smart enough to figure that out.

As a neurosurgeon, he is over – qualified to treat your paper cut, I assure you. The elementary school nurse down the hall can fix your ouchie.

Makes you wonder how a neurosurgeon can act so stupid? Maybe he went into to it hoping to find a fix for his own mental issues…you know, like psychiatrists.

Not just any neurosurgeon…but a pediatric neurosurgeon. ..operating on cases his colleagues declined due to technical challenges. ..saving lives other surgeons gave up on…what do you do for a living? rocket science?

Bengay? March 4, 2015 at 6:12 pm

Yet all of that will be forgotten. He’ll just be remembered as another failed and ridiculous republican candidate for president by society at large. Just another clown in a nice shines car packed full of them.

You ever operate on a kid that ends up dead on your operating table, have to break the news to the parents, hear their screams and cries, get sued, have to fight to keep your job, try to sleep at night thinking you killed someone’s kid? I guess if all you do is flip burgers and throw some fries in the grease then you don’t have to worry about things like that. You sound like a clueless jerk who has no idea what it is like to have to worry about decisions that might hurt someone

Can some one explain how marriage works to this dumbass? It is only legally acknowledged if a marriage license is issued, paid for and approved by your government. There were no religious representatives at my wedding, which was held nowhere near a church (well, it was SC, so that is impossible) and I’m just as married as anyone stupid enough to attend a church.

For a brilliant man, he sure is a dumb fuck. Maybe he’s decided that’s the way to win over the GOP. Wonder where he got an idea like that?

It’s backwards and ignorant to claim that being gay is a choice. As far as prison is concerned, sure a lot of guys get it up the butt or end up having to suck a dick. That does not “make” them gay. They are being made to have gay sex, or they are chosing to have it, where no pussy, or female lips or ass are readily available to them.

Do some of them come out of jail gay? Only if they went in that way, and were forced out of the closet by the experience.

Jesus, it is disheartening what a bunch of total bullshit these guys are spouting.

I suspect a lot of prison homosexuality is more about dominance over circumstances and people and less to do about sexual orientation. Without any willing vaginas, you go to the next best thing. Sociopaths aren’t always so discriminating.

Now that’s a good boy, Ben. Walk it back and go sit in the corner. We know you are not Rick Perry dumb. It’s just the shit for brains who actually think you are you a legitimate presidential candidate.

“I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation,” Carson said on his Facebook page late Wednesday afternoon. “I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended.”

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 8:46 am

The choice is to have sex with a man, absent any females. Becoming exclusively gay after being released.would reflect a “coming out of the closet” result of having “gay sex” in prison. The only “choice”, then, would be to accept the fact that they are gay. Or bisexual. It proves nothing whatsoever about whether or not a person is born gay.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 10:45 am

Some gays do it because it’s the only way they can get any action….or they are hedonistic…

That’s what he’s saying…You have to be an IGNORANT MoFo to disagree w/ that…He’s practical and right…

Better Call Flip March 5, 2015 at 10:49 am

Can’t get any action?

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 12:35 pm

Are you saying that some gay men can’t get any action, and thus they go to jail? Or that gay men who have been in jail keep having sex with men because they can’t get any action?

On the first one, that’s just incredibly stupid, even for you.

On the second one, it makes even less sense that most of your BS. Plus it does not pertain in any way to what Carson said originally, or what he said in his apology.

Your “erudition” need a major overhaul, dude.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 1:27 pm

Most homosexuals, male and female, that I know usually have severe insecurity issues…most of the time it’s because of traumatic events in their childhood… Most often sexual abuse by an adult homosexual (pedophile)….

While pop culture will force you to $#!t all over yourself at me revealing that…it is true…and your willing ignorance is the only thing that would prohibit you from acknowledging it…

The gay lobby is very intent on child abuse, if it is homosexual in nature……regardless of the lies that are being accepted as truth now…by Dumb@$$#$ like you, and FITS…

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 5:05 pm

I don’t SHIT all over myself by your “revealing” something that you cannot possibly prove. Anecdotal evidence means nothing.

Some guys that I know have experienced abuse at the hands of pedophiles. None of them say that the abuse triggered the desire to be homosexual. The already were. I also know straight men who were sexually assaulted by pedophiles as children. It did not make them gay.

Are some gays far too tolerant of “NAMBLA” types in their communities? Yes they are, but that tolerance is by no means unanimous.

“I know a gay man who was raped by his step-father” simply proves nothing. Like most of the garbage you spout.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 5:12 pm

Anecdotal???…You just regurgitate what the media tells your stupid @$$ to say…in order to perpetuate their agenda.

I take very little you have to say as credible, because you are VERY pop culture influenced, and say whatever it is, that you think others want to hear…

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 5:42 pm

Pop culture doesn’t dictate my life. Pop culture doesn’t inform me that anecdotal “evidence” proves nothing. That is a given, courtesy of the clinical sciences.

I’ll bet you watch FOX pretty often. Pop culture political “news” and commentary. Highly influenced by Murdock’s background as a tabloid mogul. And by his main man Ayles, who shepherded the career of America’s number one pop culture “conservative” radio talk show bullshit artist “El Rushbo”. Everything about O’Reilly is pop culture. Same with Hannity, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain. “The Donald”, etc., etc.

Do you ever have a truly original thought? I doubt it. The only thing that’s even close to being original about your communications is the bizarre way you warp everything out to the max, in order to fit it into your right-wing pop culture “conservative Republican” template.

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 5:23 pm

This whole debate about the coice of a word, which happens to choice, is just a bunch of mincing of words. It is a choice. It is also a choice whether we eat ot not. I can’t recall the man’s name, but I remember jlhe was in prison and he died he simply wasn’t going to eat. He died. As horrible as it may sound, that was his choice.

Ben Carson: Whose mother worked (a REAL job accomplishing something) to put him through medical school so he could apply his talent and dedication as a neurosurgeon to save the lives of children for parents desperate, who had no else to turn to…but him…

You are making a lot of incorrect assumptions about me. Married with children, I home school and do not attend your places of worship. A socialist I am not, a capitalist I am.

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 8:39 am

Splitting hairs. His apology was thorough. He said his comments did not fully reflect “his heart” on gay issues. He is trying to avoid seeming to pander too much to bigots like you — one of the things that sunk Romney in his run against Obama, after that candidate failed to distance himself from the ignorant and bigoted comments on rape from Santorum and others. Carson is no fool. He wants to win. That’s politics, pogo. Deal with it.

So you’re guaranteeing us Hillary will take it all…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 11:12 am

Bill Clinton, while I did not vote for him, was a good President. However Hillary is no Bill and I dont think she has a chance at winning, assuming she even runs.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 11:58 am

Clinton listened to the Republicans and he signed Welfare Reform and cut spending…
But he did let the 9-11 Bombing plan mature –and he is responsible for the death of 3,000 innocent people, because of his ignorance and incompetence…
And he let Iraq get to where it fostered terrorism, that ended up attacking us…
He F*#ked up a lot….but was a good follower at times…unlike Obama…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 12:29 pm

I agree. While he was in office he was King, but he could and should have done more to prevent 9/11.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 12:34 pm

King?…Kings are not Impeached and then Dis-Barred for lying under oath…

He may been king of the Democrat Party, and avoided conviction because of corrupt politicians…but he is a pretty sorry excuse for man, and an American…

But you can say that about all Democrat Presidents in my lifetime…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 12:44 pm

Yes, he did lie under oath, yes he had knowledge that real terrorist threats existed, however, the economy thrived under his leadership and he had the ability to reach across the aisle and work with Republicans. I could care less about the Monica Lewinsky incident. I do care that he left Bush with a mess and yes, as a result thousands of people died, that could have been avoided IMO.

One Democrat comes to mind that I cannot help but respect, even when I do not agree with his methods. He too worked around the constitution, however, he brought America through some of the worst times in history. I can’t imagine anyone having done a better job given the horrible circumstances of the time. FDR.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 1:22 pm

Correction: The economy thrived under Clinton’s submission to the GOP.

Remember, the economy was about as bad as Obama’s until the Republican Revolution, and Bill’s realization he would not be re-elected in 1996, unless he let Republicans take over economic policy..

It’s an example of why Obama has been a COMPLETE failure for 6-plus years. He has not listened to anyone…and things have just gotten worse…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 1:29 pm

I personally believe government operates better when there is a balance of power. As for Obama, totally agree. However, whenever there is a Democratic Congress or a Republican Congress of same political affiliation as POTUS, it’s disastrous. If I recall correctly that is exactly what happened under Bush, Republicans controlled congress. I voted for him, but there are many things I disagree with. For example, NCLB was a disaster. While I realize he was mislead on Iraq, another disaster. I prefer a balance of power.

Prez Perry March 5, 2015 at 11:28 am

You saying Ben Carson has a chance?

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 11:55 am

This is America…you F*#king Communist Dumb@$$…Anybody has chance…..
Thanks to the media, and some multi-voters in key states, an Anti-American, Jewish-hating, Racist was elected twice…
Are you so F*#king Stupid, you’re saying he can’t be….???
Or: do only allow Black Men to be democrats, to feed your Greed and power…???..

G.E.D. March 5, 2015 at 12:21 pm

Will you do yourself a favor and edit that fucking mess?

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 12:32 pm

You might better do yourself a favor and take a literacy class…LMAO….

Saluda Rapids March 5, 2015 at 12:58 pm

Shon Carson, Carson Daly, even a dead Johnny Carson all have a shot vs. Hillary. But not this guy. He doesn’t even have a chance vs. Jeb, Paul, Rubio, the dumbshits in Texas etc.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 1:18 pm

Hate non-Uncle Tom Blacks much???

Racists are pretty bad…but a Liberal RACIST – like you – after all black people have done to feed your greed, are even more Disgusting….

Saluda Rapids March 5, 2015 at 2:22 pm

Nope, I just have a brain. And I know Ben Carson will not win a single primary/caucus. He could not be elected dog catcher in a town mostly inhabited by cats. Use of the term “Uncle Tom” is racist, so the only person on here spewing racist garbage is you, you cumguzzler.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 4:03 pm

Yeah I guess so. You and FITS are so much smarter than Ben Carson..and you have accomplished SO MUCH more than he has…LMAO…

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 12:05 pm

IF FITS gets caught servicing Obama tomorrow in Columbia…does it mean FITS was born that way????…or Boz in a chocolate-laden Speedo made him do it???….LMAO…

Buz Martin March 5, 2015 at 12:37 pm

Your twisted fantasies are working overtime again, GT.

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 6:50 pm

I believe you and Buz are arguing two entirely different topics. One is choice that we do have control over. The other side of that coin, there are some things in life where we don’t have a choice. Like someone born with a life long mental illness (at least that is the nicest term those psychologists have used) or disease. Not all brains or bodies are wired the same way, however, given the context of the word choice, it is used in an environmental sense IMO, not in the sense of any defect.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 7:10 pm

I’m just pointing out that things that are commonly known have been over-ridden by lies and myths, perpetuated by the Gay Lobby, to promote their lifestyle, and get extra rights…based on their bedroom habits…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 7:20 pm

Is it “extra” rights? Or equal rights?

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 7:25 pm

Gays have EQUAL Rights as Americans. If those are violated, I stand w/ them in protest…

But there is NO right to REDEFINE Marriage, so that the government recognizes them as they want to be classified, based on the demands of a small gaggle of special interests…

Other than that: Homosexuals can, and do get married. I went to a gay marriage ceremony in 2007. I know a person who gay married in 1996.

You are falling for Bull-$#!t to think this gaggle can get special recognition for their lifestyle, and MAKE all other see it their way…that’s ridiculous…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 7:58 pm

It is my opinion government has no right to regulate nor give tax breaks to married couples period. That is nothing more than traditional religious doctrine. It’s more than tax breaks, the ability to add significant other to medical policy and while I have looked it up in the past out of curiosity as to what they are really fighting for, it does boil down to equal treatment. Doesn’t mean the Church, a private institution needs to acknowledge their union, but I do believe in equal treatment.

GrandTango March 5, 2015 at 8:12 pm

Male-female married was the rule for necessity. It strengthened nations, because morality is life…sin is death…
When you remove all Christian (the only true) moral guidance, you damage the society…
To have IGNORANT pop culture F*#ks like you…feeling sophisticated by Bashing Christian morality…while RAMMING liberal moral dictates, like welfare, Affirmative Action and disarmament down our throats…you’ll certainly collapse the very country you are GREEDILY trying to steal from the moral who built it…

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 8:29 pm

GT I do think you and I can have an intellectual discourse without bashing the other? I do think there is enough common ground, that we should be able to discuss the uncommon diplomatically?

I don’t feel sophisticated due to my personal beliefs, if anything an outcast, but a free thinker. I value the latter.

It might strengthen nations, but imo that is very unlikely and it certainly hinders world diplomacy due to what? One philosophers thoughts who has something like 30 missing years, everything written was app 40-45 years after he died and all second hand info.

How did the world survive B.C.?

GrandTango March 6, 2015 at 7:01 am

When the Founders wrote: We find these Truths to be self-evident, that was not just cliché and flowery language. It MEANS…we’ve tested the way of the decadent, secular and stupid, and that EXPERIENCE showed us that God-less immorality leads to failure, poverty and chaos.
So for some eager-beaver little Dumb@$$ like you to come along pontificating your opinion, as if it’s something we should follow, is not only Ignorance in the first degree…it’s folly.
Aside from that: We’ve had to fight monarchs, Communists and NAZIs to defend from the level of foolishness the vapid, like you, would impose on our society…
That said: Most Americans know how F*#king dull you are…but the courts, lead by Obama, have told the majority to get F*#ked…
As for discourse: I have no desire to “Dialogue” with you. I want to Obliterate you at the ballot box. You are deceitful, corrupt and dis-honorable. You’ll cheat steal and lie to take what WE have made desirable…
Now we must push down EVIL, espoused by you, and those like you…or what we have BUILT will be as worthless as the Third-World armpits that you are following the lead of…

Purple Rain March 6, 2015 at 10:41 am

Dude you some serious fucked up issues. Based on what I have read, that you rant on about daily, it is highly likely we’ll be voting for the same dumbass candidates in the primaries and little, if anything will change. Keep espousing your garbage, your popularity will continue to wane. People will tune you out. (Brightest smile) carry on wayward soldier.

GrandTango March 6, 2015 at 1:16 pm

What happen to all that reasonable discourse you’re so fond of????..LMAO…

I thought we were on Common Ground…Hahahaha..

Purple Rain March 5, 2015 at 8:08 pm

FYI my hairdresser used to be a homosexual, one of the sweetest people I know. Never heard him complain about unfair treatment which always surprised me. We were friends for years, still are to my knowledge just haven’t seen him in a very long time. His brother died, he and significant other raised children, wife too strung out, or so I heard.

The_Future_of_Columbia March 5, 2015 at 3:48 pm

I have to say that I just started visiting this site and that these comment sections are hilarious. None of you stupid libtard fucks know what you are talking about, including the fools writing these columns. I’m glad there is a place where mindless retards can come and voice their opinion on local/national news, although this site is about the equivalent of theonion. I also like the fact that the comment section is uncensored. Ben Carson is crazy. I like him because he is the only (public figure) black dude that hates black people.

Everybody March 5, 2015 at 5:22 pm
