Dr. Ben Carson

While I like some of the positions of Ben Carson, the closer I look at him as a Presidential Candidate, the less I like.

A big reason was when he came out against Kim Davis, but since then I have looked at his website and I’m concerned that his stance on religious freedom is far too narrow.  On his campaign website he has the following statement in his section entitled “Keep Faith in Our Society”:

However, we need to reverse the recent trend of secular progressives using activist, federal judges to drive faith out of our society. Anyone who wishes to practice their faith, for example by praying privately, can and should be able to do so. Equally, the rights of someone to abstain from private prayer should also be jealously protected.

This is a far too limited view.  practicing faith is far more than “praying privately” and “private prayer”.
