Ben Carson is a problem for the left. He is a brilliant man, and is recognized as a superb brain surgeon. He currently serves as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
But those qualities and accomplishments are not what has the liberals upset with this fine man.
He’s black and he’s a conservative. Specifically a Republican. As far as Democrats are concerned, there are to be no such persons as minorities who are not Democrats. And he has another characteristic the left cannot stand. He is a man of faith, who is not ashamed to share his beliefs.
For the left, freedom of speech is guaranteed to those expressing leftist political views, including atheism and humanism. A Christian and conservative man, such as Ben Carson, does not possess those rights. So two leftist political action groups have filed a lawsuit against Dr. Carson as a result of the impact of his faith.
From Independent Journal Review:
“Since taking office, President Donald Trump’s cabinet has engaged in weekly Bible studies. According to CBN News, Capitol Ministries founder Ralph Drollinger, who leads studies at the U.S. House and Senate, also leads them at the White House.
“‘It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned,’ Drollinger told CBN News.”
And they so infuriate the anti-Christian left. Dr. Carson is the latest target for persecution for his faith by liberal political action groups.
“However, on Thursday, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a lawsuit against Secretary Ben Carson’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
“According to a statement on the FFRF website, the lawsuit was filed after HUD dodged ‘records requests’ relating to the White House Bible study.”
There is no basis for these complaints. It’s pure persecution of Christians. Atheists naturally hate expressions of the Christian faith, even though it is spread throughout our history.
Consider this: The president takes the oath of office on a Bible. Yet we are to believe that studying that Bible within the halls of government is illegal?
Dr. Carson is a far more noble man that any persons populating these petty left-wing groups.
They can sue all they want. It gives them something on which to waste their supporters’ money.
The truth will march on.
