Ben Carson: Choosing Between Trump And Clinton Like Picking A Paper Cut Or 'Having Both Legs Chopped Off'

Earlier this week, Kirk Cameron joined Ben Carson in his living room for a live "teleforum" for My Faith Votes, a Religious Right effort overseen by Carson that seeks to mobilize millions of Christians to vote in 2016. As with several of the previous events, much of the focus was on attempting to convince reluctant conservative Christian voters to support Donald Trump in order to defeat Hillary Clinton, with Carson likening the decision to having to choose between getting a paper cut or "having both of your legs chopped off."

"When you don't vote, you are voting," Carson said. "I know there are some people who say, 'Well, you know, I'm a person of principle so I therefore cannot choose between the lesser of two evils.' Well, I would say, 'Would you like to have a paper cut?' And you would say, 'No, paper cuts hurt, that's pretty bad.' I would say, 'How about getting both of your legs chopped off?' Well, no, that hurts, that's bad too. What if you had to choose between the two? I don't think that would be a hard choice."

Christians must vote for Trump, Carson said, because this election is "about the direction of our nation, and it's not going to be for four or eight years, it's going to be for generations because of the way the court system will be changed."

  • Jesse Lee Peterson says that "Black Lives Matter is a hate movement. They lionize black thugs. They falsely accuse and endanger innocent whites and police. They provoke riots, black-on-white assaults, and police assassinations. They poison the minds of blacks and gullible whites. They have no sense of justice or freedom. They are led by white anarchists, communists, black homosexuals and lesbians. They hate families and God — two things blacks need most."
  • John Biver warns that "the only way the Judeo-Christian West collapses is either through a surrender to Islam, or a surrender to the religion that is the greater short term threat: liberalism/progressivism."
  • Steve Deace says that most Americans would "take the dog Obama ate" to be president over either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
  • Wayne Allyn Root says that just as "black Americans had a right to be mad 100, even 50 years ago ... today it is the middle class getting the short end of the shaft. We didn’t march for civil rights, fight for equality and stand up against racial inequality so that the pendulum could be reversed and swung against us – so our children could lose jobs, or admission to college because they’re white."
  • Peter LaBarbera responds to the Right's favorite new "not-born-gay" study: "Homosexual activists have been desperate to try to say they're 'born that way' because they believe this absolves them of their moral responsibility for their sexual behavior."
  • Finally, Eric Trump says his father's run for president "might even be a higher degree of public service [because he] does not need the job."

Trump Supporter Tells Glenn Beck That If Trump Doesn't Build A Wall, 'We're Going To Come After Him Personally'

On his radio show today, Glenn Beck asked Donald Trump supporters to call in and explain how they feel about reports that Trump is "softening" his hardline stance on illegal immigration, especially since many Trump supporters praise him for supposedly saying what he means and never backing down from his controversial positions.

Beck's first call came from "Nate in Virginia," who said that Trump is the only candidate in the last 20 years who has excited him enough to actually go out and vote because "he speaks a common tongue language" that can only be properly understood by those who can decipher the code.

That code, according to the caller, is that 80 percent of the stuff that Trump says is pure lunacy, but the core 20 percent of his message is that "he is going to fix the problem" and that is the only part that matters. 

As such, Nate said he was not worried about Trump's apparent flip-flop on immigration because that is just what he has to say in order to get elected. Provided that Trump actually follows through on his pledge to build a wall along the Southern border, he said, then "he's not going to have people like me coming after him."

But if Trump doesn't build the wall, Nate said, "he's in so much trouble, you don’t even understand the backlash of us, the ones who are so frustrated and angry and tired of all the political stuff. We're going to come after him personally. You know what I mean? We're going to get him."

Beck said that he didn't know quite what Nate meant and asked if he was talking about simply impeaching President Trump or perhaps something more violent.

"[Trump] has condoned violence in that past, hasn't he?" Nate said. "He's appealing to people who are very frustrated and angry. Their frustration and anger can only be subsided if he makes his promises true. And he has a lot on his shoulders; maybe he himself doesn't even know how much. But if he doesn't come true for us, he's going to have bigger problems, bigger problems than what you know."

"Okay," Beck said, ending the call. "Thank you for one of the spookiest phone calls I think I've ever received."

Matt Barber: 'We Shouldn't Be Surprised' That Gay People Commit Suicide Because 'The Wages Of Sin Is Death'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Matt Barber asserted that gay people have a higher rate of suicide because they know in their heart that they are rebelling against God.

Pointing to a study that reportedly found that "homosexuals who 'marry' each other are almost three times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual counterparts," Barber said that "the wages of sin is death" and so it should not be a surprise that gay people eventually break under the pressure of their own sinful behavior.

"There's a biblical explanation," Barber said. "Scripture says the wages of sin is death and folks who are engaged in the homosexual lifestyle, even if they rationalize and kid themselves and enter into a pretend marriage kind of situation, something that looks like a marriage between two men or two women, they know inherently in their heart it's not marriage; it can't be because it's missing the requisite binary male-female relationship that defines marriage."

"The sin that they're engaged in, they're engaged in disordered behavior that is in violation of God's natural law, His natural order, and His moral law and His moral order," he said. "That weighs heavy on the heart that has the truths of God and the truths of His natural law and moral law written on their hearts. So they know inherently, intuitively that they are engaged in immoral, sinful behavior, notwithstanding the fact that they try to convince themselves otherwise and so we shouldn't be surprised that they finally, many of them ultimately end up breaking under the pressure of that self guilt, knowing that they're engaged in sinful behavior."

  • Joe Messina declares that "the mainstream media wouldn’t call out Hillary or Obama or any other high-ranking official if they were caught beheading Christians themselves, or if they hand carried the ransom money to Iran, or if they had video of Hillary giving the order to erase, erase, erase."
  • Michele Bachmann says Huma Abedin "may certainly use her position of influence to turn Hillary Clinton toward a decidedly pro-Shariah law view in the U.S."
  • Phyllis Schlafly proclaims that Donald Trump is "the only presidential candidate who understands the immigration issue and how to solve it. Trump has the boldness and willpower to make countries take back their criminals. That is the kind of boldness and willpower that we need in the oval office to handle immigration policy."
  • Brian Camenker says that lawmakers in California "want to force Christian colleges to help the LGBT movement humiliate them, harass them, and ultimately destroy them."
  • Finally, Richard Land says that "if I didn't vote for Donald Trump in order to defeat Hillary Clinton, I would have to apologize to Jesus."

Glenn Beck And The Burden Of Being God's Watchman

Glenn Beck spent the first hour of his radio broadcast today issuing yet another dire prophetic declaration that everything he has warned about for the last 10 years is now all coming true and that only his audience has been divinely prepared to save America.

Earlier this year, Beck declared that, for ten years, God had been preparing his audience to save America by electing Ted Cruz as president, but that obviously didn't pan out. So now he is claiming that his audience has been prepared to reclaim America if Donald Trump is elected president and becomes a strongman and a dictator.

Beck doesn't want to have to issue these sorts of warnings, he said, but he has been commanded by God to do so or will otherwise bear the responsibility for the death of millions.

"I can only do what I'm supposed to do, what I feel the Lord has commanded me to do and that is tell the truth," Beck said. "He has commanded me to do my own homework. He has commanded me to never compromise on what you truly believe ... As I started to say in 2004, privately at least, there is a warning in Ezekiel that in those days there will be a watchman on the tower and at the gates. That means all of us, in our own way, are watchmen on the gates, in your own life. And if you see trouble coming, you are supposed to warn the people and, if you don't, the blood of everyone who could have heard the warning and could have done something, that blood is on your hands."

"This audience is the only hope because you are the only audience that is truly been prepared for these things at this time," he declared. "You will be our republic's last line of defense. So what do I do? People are telling me, 'At least just shut up.' I can't. I can't. You condemn me if I continue to warn, but God condemns me if I fail to warn."

Wayne Allyn Root Apparently Thinks White Middle Class Males Are The Slaves In Today's Society

Yesterday, Donald Trump-worshiping sycophant Wayne Allyn Root appeared on "Newsmax Prime" to promote his new book, "Angry White Male: How the Donald Trump Phenomenon is Changing America—and What We Can All Do to Save the Middle Class."

Root said that Democrats are intent on destroying white middle class males and that men like him therefore have every right to be outraged about it, just like blacks were angry when they were the victims of slavery and widespread institutional discrimination.

"We have a right to be angry," Root said. "Certainly today they don't say black people, when they were being persecuted, when they were enslaved, when they weren't allowed to vote, when there were poll taxes, when they were treated like second class citizens, when they were being hosed by policemen in the South, do people today say they had no right to complain and be angry?"

Today, Root said, it is white middle class males who are facing this sort of relentless persecution.

Democrats are "looking to destroy us with taxes, with spending, with regulations, with IRS audits, with Obamacare, with climate change, you name it, we're being attacked from every direction," Root fumed, saying that everything that white males like him believe in has been "under massive attack in the United States of America for the last 50 years, but particularly, the last eight years of Barack Obama."
