Ben Carson is being cornered by liberals, and sadly statements he is making are being used against him. Many of Trump’s advisors have not seen any issue with Trump giving power over to the church. Many people don’t, so it isn’t much surprise if Ben Carson isn’t having any issues with it.
Ben Carson was responsible for a meeting of over 900 Evangelical leaders to hear Trump’s appeal to them after which he formed a board of evangelical advisors. And since then the trend has been upward towards the formation of the image to the beast.
