‘Prison Proves It’: Ben Carson on Why People Choose to be Gay

Oh boy.

Dr. Ben Carson said Wednesday that he believes homosexuality is a choice because some people who go to prison identifying as straight come out of prison identifying as gay.

During a discussion of same-sex marriage, CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked the potential 2016 Republican presidential contender whether he thought being gay was a choice. When Carson replied “absolutely,” Cuomo asked him to explain.

“Because a lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight — and when they come out they’re gay,” Carson said on “New Day.” “So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
