Christian conservative Bryan Fischer
says he wants every GOP presidential candidate to answer “the Ben
Carson question”: Is being gay a choice?
Fischer spent two segments on his radio
program devoted to Carson's comments on CNN's New Day.
“You think [people] have control over
their sexuality?” host Chris Cuomo asked.
“Absolutely,” Carson answered.
“Because a lot of people go into prison straight and when they come
out they're gay.”
Carson has set “the benchmark for the
other Republican candidates,” Fischer told his listeners.
“I hope they ask Jeb Bush this
said. “And I hope they ask Rick Perry this question. I hope
they ask Rand Paul this question. I hope they ask Mike Huckabee this
question. I hope that they ask Scott Walker this question. I hope
they ask Ted Cruz this question.”
“I want every single Republican
candidate on record: Do you think that homosexual conduct is a
choice? I want every GOP presidential candidate to be asked that
question and to be put on record. Do you believe that homosexuality
is a choice? What is your answer?”
Carson, however, has already apologized
for the remark and vowed to stop talking about gay rights.
