Ben Carson Fans Seek To Use Government To Force Religion On You
This warning comes from the National Committee To Draft Ben Carson, the dominant organization preparing for Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign: “We have to understand that Freedom of Religion must never be allowed to be a mandate for Freedom from Religion.”
Let’s be clear about what this policy position means: Ben Carson’s supporters want to use the power of the federal government to force secular Americans to engage in acts of religious worship, despite their beliefs. They don’t believe that Americans should have the right to decide for themselves whether they will be religious. In their vision of a new America, religion will be mandatory, compelled by government bureaucrats.
This team of Republicans has chosen Ben Carson as their presidential candidate because they believe he is the most likely to impose their plan for a big government establishment of compulsory religion. The zeal with which they pursue this vision of an extremist religious takeover of the USA is one reason that progressive Americans need to pay close attention to the Ben Carson for President campaign.
