Ben Carson: Christian Values? We Can Worry About That Piffle Later.


Donald Trump says he gave generously to charity in the aftermath of 9/11. The New York City Comptroller’s Office checked into that:

“My office has reviewed the donations made in the nearly 12 months following the attacks – and we didn’t find evidence that he contributed a single cent to the victims, our first responders, and to our city through the Twin Towers Fund,” New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, a Democrat, said in a statement to ABC News today.

That doesn’t sound very Christian of Trump, does it? Let’s ask a famous Christian:

On Morning Joe, Carson said that he’d love it if we could start teaching Judeo-Christian values to our children again—for example, that you shouldn’t grab women’s pussies—but we have more important stuff to think about: “What matters is that the train is going off the cliff and we’re taking our eye off of that and we’re getting involved in other issues that can be taken care of later.”

What about it, Christians? My book knowledge of Christianity suggests to me that this is exactly backward: values matter the most when the train is going off the cliff. But what do I know? Help me out here.
