MRFF warned that having Christian Nationalist wackaloon Ben Carson as the keynote speaker at the Air Force Academy’s prestigious National Character and Leadership Symposium was a very bad idea, and he outdid even MRFF’s worst expectations, saying in answer to a cadet’s question:
“[God] is the reason that our nation excelled the way that it does. And those people that like to criticize America – criticize people in America – and always talking about separation of church and state, which is not in the Constitution, by the way – do they realize that our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain unalienable rights given to us by our creator, a.k.a. God – do they realize that the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says we are one nation under God – in many courtrooms, on the wall, it says ‘In God we Trust’ – every coin in our pocket, every bill in our wallet says ‘In God we Trust.’ So if it’s in our founding documents, it’s in our Pledge, it’s on our courts, it’s on our money, but we’re not supposed to talk about it. What in the world is that? In medicine we call it schizophrenia.”
