Detroit native and renowned neurosurgeon, Ben Carson, was the guest speaker at the Kalamazoo Christian School Association for their annual fundraiser. Carson known for his conservative politics, spoke to a crowd of about 1300.
According to Mlive.com Carson spoke on his conviction on faith and how a strong family foundation contributed to his success.
“I think the Founding Fathers would turn over in their graves if they saw what was going on now,” Carson said.
“It’s disturbing that today, if you’re pro-life, you’re called anti-woman,” he said.”If you support traditional families, you’re called homophobic. If you’re a white person who disagrees with a progressive black, you’re called racist. If you’re black and disagrees with progressives, you’re called crazy.”
He also told the audience that it’s their job “to be courageous and realize that freedom is not free and must be fought for.
“That’s the only way we’re going to be one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
It has been rumored that Carson is seriously considering a presidential bid in 2016.
