Carson Says He Is More Religious Than Trump

Ben Carson on Wednesday questioned the religious faith of fellow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

‘Probably the biggest thing … I’ve realized (is) where my success has come from, and I don’t in any way deny my faith in God,” the former pediatric neurosurgeon told reporters while campaigning in Anaheim. “By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life, and that’s a very big part of who I am. I don’t get that impression with (Trump). Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t get that.”

On Wednesday night, the billionaire businessman replied by tweeting: “Wow, I am ahead of the field with evangelicals (am so proud of this) and virtually every other group, and Ben Carson just took a swipe at me.”

CNN noted that Trump upset evangelical voters at this year’s Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa. When asked whether he had ever asked for God’s forgiveness, he replied: “I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so. I think if I do something wrong, I think I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. … I am Presbyterian, and I go to church and I love God and I love my church.
