  • Ben Carson: People Upset Over My Poisoned Gay Wedding Cake 'Joke' Are Being 'Immature'

    Dr. Ben Carson isn't backing away from his "joke" this weekend about anti-gay bakers poisoning wedding cakes of same-sex couples.

    Tea Party activist Ben Carson over the weekend made a "joke," telling an audience at the Iowa Freedom Summit that same-sex couples shouldn't try to force anti-gay bakers to make their wedding cakes

    Carson told reporters he had "a problem...when people try to force people to act against their beliefs because they say, 'they're discriminating against me.'"

    "So they can go right down the street and buy a cake, but no, let's bring a suit against this person because I want them to make my cake even though they don't believe in it. Which is really not all that smart because they might put poison in that cake," he said.

    Many were unhappy about the remarks, but Carson appeared on Fox News Monday night to push back. 

    Anchor Megyn Kelly prompted, "now some are claiming you’re suggesting gays who complain about what they view as discrimination, risk getting poisoned."

    Carson was only too happy to respond. 

    "You know, that would be a very immature interpretation of what is a common thing, never make your waiter or your chef angry because you don’t know what they’re going to put in your food. People who look for something like that to make an issue out of really don’t have much of an issue. So, I guess that’s rather comforting."

    Ironically, Carson also told Kelly that if he does not win the GOP nomination to run for President, he would like to see the Republican to be "somebody who puts the Constitution on the top shelf, who doesn’t pick and choose the laws that they want to enforce, somebody who understands the economy and understands how to get it moving, someone who understands the real meaning of compassion, and how we actually invest in our fellow human beings, and provide them with a ladder to actually achieve, and not just to stay in a dependent position, and someone who knows how to lead on the world stage."

    Sounds like he wants a Democrat, doesn't it?

      I’m an actual comedian, Dr. Carson. Leave the joke telling to the professionals.

      Does he not know that blacks were treated the same way years ago? Would he think a comment from the KKK about lynching would be funny?

      Sounds more like he’s talking about a Progressive candidate.

      Yes talk of lynching blacks were just jokes as well. I know his kind. He is nothing more than a self hater.

      What does Carson have against food-handling professionals that leaves him eager to malign them as bitter, vindictive and ready to sicken or kill their customers at the drop of a hat?

      For the people I know, this is no joke, it’s an ugly attack.

      The KKK is just joking when they spout their biggotry as well

      He’s just a token to the GOP anyway. Doesn’t really matter what he thinks.

      To be honest I didn’t take offense at the comment regarding poison; I took offense to the fact that a BLACK MAN believes that owners of businesses providing public services should be able to discriminate against customers because of a characteristic of the customer.

      Carson is just the new breed of Uncle Tom.

      Just what one would expect from a JeeeZusss-bleating bible-babbling ChristoRepublican domestic terrorist.

      …and when it happens
      FOX & Fools will assure us it was just one bad apple in an otherwise God-blessed heaven-destined saints-elected chorus of Hallelujahs.

      I was going to say something really hurtful but then erased it. Why should I stoop to his level? Lord I said it once and I will say it again. This man is such a tool.
