(CNSNews.com) – Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books, said the Islamic State wants to destroy Western civilization and establish a caliphate and that its “convert-or-die doctrine” mirrors some of the ideas pushed by the “political-correctness police” in America.
“Our enemies’ desire to establish a caliphate is no joke,” said Dr. Carson in a Sept. 6 commentary. “Their convert-or-die doctrine parallels some of the social philosophies enforced by the political-correctness police in this country.”
“Either you accept their interpretation of what is moral and correct, or the name-calling starts, and they attempt to destroy your business or reputation,” he said. “We despise the Islamic State, but do not see the same ugliness in our own tactics. The truth hurts, and it is much easier to ignore it or try to demonize its bearer.”
