Now is probably not the right time to make statements such as this one. But since Republicans are Conservatives I wouldn't expect less from them. Anyway, I'm sure Ben Carson isn't making any new friends with his recent comments about gayness being a choice. Gay people have been asserting that they are born that way and when someone says it's a choice . . . they aren't going to like it. http://www.rollingstone.com/politic...ice-says-gop-pres-hopeful-ben-carson-20150304 GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson believes homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof? "A lot of people. . . go into prison straight, and when they come out, they're gay . . . " Not that it's going to make a huge difference. Ben Carson obviously won't get the GOP nomination.
