Ben Carson isn’t sure if the Constitution has authority over the bible.

This man is running for President.  There are people who will vote for him in the primary and who would vote for him in the general election.  It’s not Ben Carson so much who’s the problem, it’s the fact that there is enough support for him from American citizens (the type who claim to love [Read More...]
