Doctor Benjamin Carson addressed a audience recently which included Barack Obama at a recent prayer breakfast and he prevoked quite a bit of attention by his daring to speak the truth to the president and the audience that were there. Benjamin Carson could have, knowing that Barack Obama was going to be attending the prayer breafast, have given a politically correct speech which would have been expected for him to have done but he had to be true to himself and to his principles and so he spoke from what was in his heart and what he believed needed to be said to those present.
Its not often today that a speaker when addressing a audience doesn't weight every word he plans to deliver against a scale of political correctness and the ever imposed censorship of the courts, and the ACLU,'s edicts against the mentioning of anything having to do with religon publicly especially speaking about one's Christian religion in public but the good doctor speaking at a prayer breakfast thought the mention of God and speaking the truth wouldn't be out of place in that setting and so he continued saying what hadn't been publicly spoken about by anyone for way too long in this country.
Doctor Benjamin Carson sensed a hidden yearning by Americans to, for once, be told of the things the doctor at this prayer breakfast spoke so openly about when people had become acustomed to constantly being lied to by their elected leaders.How refreshing and unexpected it must have been to the audience at this prayer breakfast to hear Doctor Benjamin Carson saying what many in the audience themselves were feeling about what was going wrong in this country and were thus receptive to what the doctor was prescribing for the country to make it well again. This wasn't the first time that Doctor Benjamin Carson had been invited to speak at a prayer breakfast, he had been invited previously to speak at a prayer breakfast when Bill Clinton, then the president, had been in attendence and I have to imagine that Bill Clinton wasn't anymore approving of what the doctor said at that time than Barack Obama was at this last prayer breakfast but the people in the audience both times, gave the good doctor a standing ovation fo daring to speak the truth to power and to finally be hearing someone brave enough to take the personal risks to themselves to tell it.America owes Doctor Benjamin Carson their graditude for speaking out and taking a stand when so few now seem willing to do it.
