Ben Carson opens up about his worldview and his political views: “In terms of the problems facing the nation today, Dr. Carson pointed to moral relativism, telling Beck that “political correctness dictates that there is no right and wrong.” Moral relativism, as it did with the ancient Romans according to the doctor, causes people to lose their sense of self and value. “And I think we as Americans are beginning to lose that,” he added. “One of the founding pillars of this nation was freedom of speech and freedom of expression and when we give up that freedom by succumbing to political correctness,” Carson said that Americans are allowing that underpinning to be compromised “without debate.””
“I don’t think he’s what we need right now in the Catholic Church,” Madeline Cuomo, the sister of the current governor of New York and member of a powerful Empire State family, toldCrain’s New York Business. “We’re looking to move the Church forward, with gay marriage and women priests. He’s going to turn back the clock.”
This is an issue that divides Americans not just on partisan or religious lines but most conspicuously on generational lines. Young people, including many Republicans, heavily favor same-sex marriage. Elderly people, including many Democrats, heavily oppose it. If opinion continues to move toward same-sex marriage, it will be a tough issue for Republicans, since most of their voters currently are opposed. But it will be a tough issue for some Democrats as well, since many black voters are staunchly opposed.
