    Carson: Gay rights aren't the same as civil rights


    Carson: Gay rights aren't the same as civil rights

    Washington (CNN)Ben Carson said Wednesday night that he was "irritated" by the comparison between the fight for same-sex marriage rights and the Civil Rights Movement because there's no overt segregation against gays.

    Speaking on Fox News' "Special Report", Carson elaborated on his remarks on CNN in March that he believes being gay is a choice because people "go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they're gay."

    You know, I really don't much care for Carson's thinking about gays, but holy **** did you deceptively edit that clip from the story. Here is the very next sentence:

    The GOP presidential contender told host Brett Baier that he "shouldn't have allowed my emotions" into the conversation, but was reacting to CNN host Chris Cuomo's line of questioning on the issue.
    Instead of big bold letters of a bright color of what he said some time ago, with no explanation, you might have included that sentence where he starts to explain his thinking and his mistake. If you have to be so dishonest to make a point, that is a problem with you, and you might want to stop advocating for gays since you harm them more than you help with **** like this.

    Re: Carson: Gay rights aren't the same as civil rights

    I agree with him when he says the gay rights movement is not the same as the civil rights movement. You cant really compare the gay rights movement of today to discrimination of blacks during the civil rights movement. The two are nowhere near close. I am not saying that to in anyway diminish the importance of equal rights, but it is really not the same.

    Where is the mistake? It isn't as if he said that he was wrong....he gave an apology that wasn't really an apology. He still actually believes what he said, he's just saying that he shouldn't have said it. Doh!

    I don't think anyone has ever tried to say that they are the same. But they involve similar issues and it is fair to draw comparisons to the two. Just because you compare two movements does not mean that you are equating them.
    Carson is an idiot.

    Particularly since the arguments currently made against same-sex marriage are basically word-for-word copies of the arguments that were made against interracial marriage. If you're gonna make the same arguments as those guys, I'm going to draw the comparison to try and highlight why you are wrong! Don't know why that bothers Christians so much.

    I dont know anybody that has ever said they are the same in regards to suffering, slaver etc, that would just be stupid and I agree they are not the same in that regard . . while gays have been killed and fired and defined service that overall scope of the discrimination is not nearly the sam


    where they are in fact that same though is they are both equal rights issues, they are civil rights issues . . . and it is a matter of people fighting to not be treated as lessers . . civil rights is not soley and only about blacks its about equality and in that regard they are the same and many court cases have already referred to this factual similarity . . .

    Discrimination of gays today during the gay rights movement is nothing compared to the civil rights movement of the 60's. It's not. No matter how much you want them to be, no matter how many times you reply it won't be. As I said before, I am not saying people shouldn't fight for rights and what they believe is right, but not all movements are the same.
