Evil Ben Carson, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon, has opted out as commencement speaker for the School of Medicine after the shitz storm of controversy he cause with his homophobic anti-gay comments.
“Given all the national media surrounding my statements as to my belief in traditional marriage, I believe it would be in the best interest of the students for me to voluntarily withdraw as your commencement speaker this year,” he wrote in an email to Dean Paul Rothman shared with the school.
Carson, like many anti-gay mega monsters compared gay marriage to bestiality and pedophilia. Thats about as tired as Maggie Gallagher’s old ass.
Carson: ”My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said. “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.”
A majority of graduating students signed a petition stating that he was an inappropriate choice for speaker.
I have said it before and i will say it again, there is nothing more disgusting than an African-American opposing equal rights for ANYONE in this country after what their community went through. It is the epitome of bigotry and ignorance… And for the few out there who like to use the “free speech argument, everyone is entitled to have their own opinions and beliefs but Carson’s comments are nothing less than HATE speech. There is no doubt that the graduating class will have quite a few LGBT members amongst the graduates. They should not have to be subjected to the “words of wisdom” from a man who compares their love to pedophiles and bestiality .
If Carson’s comments were racist or anti-semitic, it is safe to say Johns Hopkins would have dropped his ass faster than he could say glory hole. :)
