GOP Presidential Hopeful “Dr” Ben Carson: Gay Butt Sex In Prison Proves Being Gay Is A Choice.

Ben Carson

Tea Party darling and potential Republican candidate for president in 2016 (because Tea Party loons are STILL Republicans) “Dr” Ben Carson in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo when asked if whether being gay is a choice, Carson responded: “Absolutely.”

“Because 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,” Carson said.

Carson stated that because of gay sex happens in prison by “straight” convicts that it “thwarts” the notion that homosexuality isn’t a choice.

Carson also said he believes the issue of allowing or restricting same-sex marriage should be decided on the state level, rather than by federal courts adding that he believes it’s possible to grant the legal rights that accompany marriage to same-sex couples, or any couple without redefining “marriage”.

“Why do gay people want to get married? Why do they say they want to get married? Because they want to have various rights — property rights, visitation rights,” he said. “Why can’t any two human beings, I don’t care what their sexual orientation is, why can’t they have the legal right to do those things? That does not require changing the definition of marriage.”

  1. He’s a lunatic. Nothing makes sense. He doesn’t understand prison sexuality. He doesn’t seem to WANT to understand anything. He loves attention and loves hearing himself talk. And apparently he has an audience. What a tragedy.
