Ben Carson says gay marriage supporters want to destroy America

The current leader of the Republican pack had this to say about gay marriage during tonight’s debate:

“Well obviously you don’t understand my views on homosexuality. I believe that our Constitution protects everybody,” Carson explained. “I also believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

“This is one of the myths that the left perpetrates on our society … the fact of the matter is, we the American people are not each other’s enemies,” he said.

“There is no reason that you can’t be perfectly fair to the gay community.  This is one of the myths that the left perpetuates on our society. This is how they frighten people and get people to shut up.”

Carson said that people who accuse other people of being homophobic on the same-sex marriage issue are “destroying the nation.”

But his views are much more extreme on this point.  Earlier this year he told a radio program that congress and the president should promote removal of pro-gay marriage judges by initiating ballot initiatives.  Judges, he said who support gay rights should be simply be removed, he said.

Carson told CNN’s Chris Cuomo in March that he believes homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice, because “a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay.”

He narrowly averted finding out.
