Dr. Ben Carson Argues Being Gay Is 'Absolutely' a Choice

Quote:
Dr. Ben Carson said being gay is "absolutely" a choice, just hours after launching an exploratory committee for 2016. The renowned neurosurgeon-turned-conservative-celebrity said prisons prove this theory, in an interview with CNN that aired on Wednesday morning. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and when they come out, they're gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question," he said
Carson's hard-right politics and bold stances like this have made him a darling of the far right. His stance on gay marriage isn't new (previously he's aligned homosexuality with bestiality, pedophilia and murder) but it highlights why his presidential ambitions put the GOP in such a pickle: With a majority of Americans supporting gay marriage, fielding a Republican candidate who is so blatantly hostile to homosexuality is a great way to send swing voters packing.

Perhaps Mr. Carson views his preference between men and woman as just a mere choice, but we are not all bi-curious or bi-sexual, like him.

One does not choose their preferences as such. They are what they are.

Whether or not one acts on their sexual preferences is another matter.

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard

He's an idiot then. You can't choose to get an erection for a man. Can anyone here say they can choose to get an erection for a man if they wanted to?

This has nothing to do with left right, or anything about politics.

You can't choose?  I have a daughter who was gay, was in a relationship for about 3 years with another woman and then decided to date men.  That pretty much tells me that is choice.

Woman don't have to get an erection to have sex. Look it up, but its not in the bible.

Your daughter like most women are bi-sexual. Yes she chooses which to have a sexual relationship. However that does not mean her sexual attraction for women is gone just because you told her she's going to hell. Roll Eyes

Interesting, Seawolf essentially stated that attraction to the opposite sex is also a choice. So, where exactly does that leave the whole "natural" thing at?

Actually, that was a piss poor attempt to explain it away. So because women don't have penises they are not prone to be gay? Logic is lacking. If you want to believe that it is not choice go ahead but based on what I have seen, it is purely choice in my opinion.  Also, no, I have not told her she is going to hell because of that.  You see, it is sin condemns us.  You seem to be lacking the understanding of God's law and our state.  Will gladly discuss this with you in the religion forum.
