Doctor Ben Carson, one of the few non-politicians running for the GOP nomination for president this time out (Carly Fiorina being the other) is sick to death of people in the media scoffing at and scolding people for talking about God and he is urging us all to ignore those people.
Carson is out there making a firm case for including religious topics in politics.
“We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God, we cannot talk about our faith,” the retired neurosurgeon said.
“I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator – aka God?” he asked.
Carson went on to note the key references to God in the pledge of allegiance, on the walls of U.S. courtrooms, and on coins and banknotes.
“So, if it’s in our founding documents, it’s in our pledge, it’s in our courts and it’s on our money, but we’re not supposed to talk about it, what in the world is that?” he said. “In medicine we call it schizophrenia, a form of craziness.”
Carson said it was time for Americans “to realize that there’s nothing wrong with living by godly principles – of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your God-given talents to the utmost so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that govern your life.”
“And if we do that,” he concluded, “not only will we remain a pinnacle nation, but we will truly have one nation, under God.”
Carson is a good man, for sure. Would you support him for president?
