Fischer: Carson Bowing to ‘Homofascists’

Oh boy, Ben Carson really stepped in it now. After saying that prison rape proves that homosexuality is a choice and then disingenuously trying to walk that back, he now has Bryan Fischer criticizing him for “surrendering to homofascists.”

But for saying that homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice, Dr. Carson immediately came under withering assault from what lesbian writer Tammy Bruce calls the “Gay Gestapo” and what Bill Maher calls “the gay mafia.” Under this relentless attack, it wasn’t long before Dr. Carson issued an apology on Facebook…

The fundamental problem with Carson’s apology is that he nowhere makes a distinction between impulse and behavior.

Dr. Carson just this week formed an exploratory committee, which means he’s running for the presidency. He admits here that, on an issue which has been a front burner social issue for the last 12 years, he gave an answer “without really thinking about it.” Ouch.

And then he seems to imply that declaring that sexual behavior is a “choice” represents a failure “to treat all people with respect and dignity.” In other words, he has taken the position here that expressing a biblical view of human sexuality is wrong and degrading to people who disagree. This is just what the homosexual lobby wants everybody to believe. Double ouch.

I think, in point of fact, Dr. Carson has thought about the matter quite thoroughly and did in fact speak his true mind to Chris Cuomo. Evidence of this is that he had a ready illustration of his point (situational homosexuality in the prison system) at hand.

Okay, so he apparently thinks Carson is lying too. And then:

(And it turns out that Dr. Carson was exactly right. Christopher Hensley, a criminal justice professor at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, recently authored a study which revealed 17% of inmates change their sexual orientation while incarcerated.)

Now here’s the amusing part. The link in that last quote is to a PolitiFact article that concludes that what Carson said is false. And the study he thinks supports his position does nothing of the sort:

Many inmates who identify as heterosexual change their sexual habits while in prison, possibly as a victim or perpetrator of abuse or due to lack of access to the opposite sex, said Christopher Hensley, a University of Tennessee at Chattanooga criminal justice professor. But a change in sexual behavior does not necessarily equate to a change in sexual orientation.

No, they did not “change their sexual orientation,” they just had gay sex, often a result of being raped as a show of primate dominance. As usual, Fischer has no idea what he’s talking about.

    I’ve been noticing this more and more lately; someone including a hypertext link in an article not knowing or not caring whether it actually supports their point, but secure in the knowledge that their followers won’t actually click through and read it to find out. I figure there has to already be a name for this. Any ideas?

    Bullshitting.

    he apparently thinks Carson is lying too.

    Everyone knows Carson is lying, they just disagree on exactly what he’s lying about.

    Whilst this is truth :

    And, of course, Glen Beck thinks Carson said “Goodbye to his presidential career,” with the original prison comment because ‘That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard”.

    It’s beginning to look like Carson will have an even shorter run in the spotlight than Herman Cain did last election cycle. As he tries to navigate the shoals on the right … not exactly friendly to blacks to begin with and less so after 6 years of Obama … he keeps triggering the eye-rolling of most Americans and the “oh, listen to what he said NOW” glee on the left.

    “Imploding” might be a kind description of Carson’s campaign.

    From the linked article:

    He and his co-author questioned 142 prisoners at a maximum-security facility in the South about their sexual orientation. They found that of the sample, 24 men changed sexual orientation while incarcerated.

    Of those 24, 18 changed from straight to bisexual, three changed from bisexual to straight, and one each changed from bisexual to gay, gay to bisexual, and gay to straight.

    Not even one instance of changing from straight to gay?

    “As usual, Fischer has no idea what he’s talking about.” So nothing has changed.

  • cptdoom

    Of those 24, 18 changed from straight to bisexual, three changed from bisexual to straight, and one each changed from bisexual to gay, gay to bisexual, and gay to straight.

    And this change is only in self-identification, so there is no proof that any biological or physiological change has occurred. The men, for instance, who now said they were bisexual, while previously saying they were straight very well could have had a bisexual orientation their entire lives, but they either denied it or weren’t aware of an attraction to men. Or they may simply believe that , because they have experienced sex with another man while in prison, that makes them bi.

    It’s also interesting to note that many cultures do not consider the top, or insertive partner, to be homosexual.
