Carson: ‘Secular Progressives…Bully Us’ Against God
Ben Carson believes those horrible non-religious progressives are keeping God out of the lives of good Americans by bullying.
“Don’t let the secular progressives drive God out of our lives,” Carson told listeners at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City.
“We have to stop letting them bully us,” he said of secular interests. ‘We back down too easily. It’s an important part of who we are.”
Carson said that government was never meant to have a role controlling people’s beliefs. He challenged Americans to reclaim their nation’s founding principles and shrink bureaucracy’s role in their lives.
“The fact of the matter is that I believe our founders set up a system that wasn’t supposed to cater to a political class,” Carson said. “It was supposed to cater to the people.”
