Audience Doesn't Stand For Moderator's 'Gotcha' Question Aimed At Carson
Republican moderator Carl Quintanilla pressed front-runner Ben Carson on his association with certain groups during Thursday’s debate, though the audience made it clear when they felt he crossed the line.
Initially responding to his work with organizations that represent a view on homosexuality different from his, Carson said that he does not advocate treating anyone differently because of their sexual orientation.
“I believe that our Constitution protects everybody,” he said. “I also believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.”
Carson went on to insist that there are forces at work in an attempt to divide Americans, adding his belief that people can and will get along — regardless of ideological differences — given the opportunity.
“We the American people are not each other’s enemies,” he asserted.”
