6. The last thing we need in the White House is some whack-a-doo fundie.

But with most Republican candidates, I repeat myself.

The whack is strong in this one, though . . . Among his nuttier beliefs:


The Affordable Care Act is the worst thing to happen to the country since slavery.[8] Why? Because his misquote of Lenin says so.[9]

Carson, quoted literally, lumps homosexuals, NAMBLA members, and bestiality practitioners as being against his idea of marriage.[10]

Dependence on government programs for the poor creates dependence ... like the food stamps Carson admits his childhood family couldn't have done without.[11]

Abortion is a form of human sacrifice.[12]

Teaching about America's past mistakes, such as Japanese American internment, will make students "sign up for ISIS".[13]

He does not believe in separation of church and state and he engages in the usual sort of historical revisionism to justify his belief.[14]

Carson blames police shootings (particularly the events that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri[wp]) on feminism.[15][16][17]

He believes that religion is needed to interpret science because "maybe the science is just propaganda".[18][19]

Apparently, prison sex/rape between inmates is not about power/domination, but proves that being gay is a choice.[20]

Carson does not believe in Darwinian evolution, which he claims rests upon "incredible fairy tales." [21] He believes that no transitional species have ever been discovered, and considers the human brain (with its billions of neural connections) evidence for an Intelligent Designer.

America under Obama is like Nazi Germany because political correctness.[22]

Black Americans who vote Democrat don't think for themselves.[23]

As a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, it will be interesting to see whether he will follow its teaching of pacifism or ignore it in order to appeal more to Republican hawks.

Muslims should not be President because it is "against the Constitution". The irony that a black man is using the same logic as white supremacists talking about a black President was not lost on the media or black Twitter.[24]
