Johns Hopkins students are campaigning to have Dr. Ben Carson pulled from this year’s commencement speaker line-up in response to comments made about gay marriage.

Carson has since said he apologizes for having offended anyone and indicated he might withdraw from the commencement role, though he says his words are being misconstrued.

Carson, who rocketed to political fame after criticizing President Obama’s policies during the National Prayer Breakfast,made the gay marriage comments on Fox News Tuesday night.

Host Sean Hannity asked Carson his opinion on same-sex marriage, given the Supreme Court’s consideration of two gay marriage cases this week.

“Marriage is between a man and a woman,” Carson said. “It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in [human-animal sex]– it doesn’t matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition.”

Students accused Carson of effectively comparing “gay relationships with [pedo-files] and [human-animal sex].”

 

John Hopkins administrators have since spoken out in support of Dr. Carson despite his comments and in spite of the student’s opposition. Do you think he should be banned from speaking at the ceremony?
