Ben Carson on LGBT Issues

Carson opposes gay marriage, but maintains that this does not make him “homophobic”.


CARL QUINTANILLA: “Last year, a marketing study called the warehouse retailer 'the #1 gay-friendly brand in America', partly because of its domestic partner benefits. Why would you serve on a company whose policies seem to run counter to your views on homosexuality?”

BEN CARSON: “Well, obviously you don't understand my views on homosexuality. I believe that our constitution protects everybody, regardless of their sexual orientation or any other aspect. I also believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. And there is no reason that you can't be perfectly fair to the gay community. They shouldn't automatically assume that because you believe that marriage is between one man and one woman, that you are a homophobe. And this is one of the myths that the left perpetrates on our society. And this is how they frighten people and get people to shut up. You know, that's what the PC culture is all about, and it's destroying this nation. And the fact of the matter is, we the American people are not each other's enemies. It's those people who are trying to divide us who are the enemies, and we need to make that very clear to everybody.”
