Ben Carson Hopes the Supreme Court Won't Infringe on the Rights of Christians

While popular GOP presidential hopeful, Ben Carson, said he "strongly disagreed" with the Supreme Court's decision on Friday to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide, he did acknowledge that it is "now the law of the land." Following the court's historic ruling Carson said "I call on Congress to make sure deeply held religious views are respected and protected. The government must never force Christians to violate their religious beliefs."

As a Medal of Freedom recipient, his views differ from his fellow GOP presidential candidates. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called the ruling "irrational" and "unconstitutional." Another GOP presidential candidate, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, said that the decision would “pave the way for an all out assault against the religious freedom rights of Christians who disagree with this decision.” On the other hand, GOP front-runner, former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.), stated that “the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make this decision.”
