Pope-Civitas keynote speaker doubles down on his bizarre views of human sexuality

For those of you that may be wondering who in the heck this strange would-be GOP presidential candidate named Ben Carson is — you know, the troubled soul who claimed this week that prison turns people gay and then issued a non-apology apology for the absurd statement — rest easy as you’ll get your chance soon.

It turns out that he’s coming to Raleigh in the coming weeks thanks to our open-minded friends over at the Pope-Civitas Institute who have made him the keynote speaker (and, apparently, the featured homophobe) at this month’s 2015 Conservative Leadership Conference!

Stay tuned — should be loads of fun.

    Guh. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more disgusting collection of misanthropes than at these annual Civitas conventions. As usual, I just don’t get it. And don’t want to get it.

    And I am guessing they are glad you don’t “get it”.

    No wonder Civitas has to rely on Papa Smurfs money, no sane person would give this collection on wackos, bigots & closet racists a penny.

    I’m just waiting for the upcoming Civitas- Sarah Palin “speech”. Even I would pay good money to go see that train-wreck! I do hope the tele-prompter breaks down (again).

    That is quite the compliment coming from you Alan. Good to see you trollin’ again.
