To say that I was absolutely outraged when I saw the KAL's cartoon of April 14 is putting it more than mildly. To see Dr. Ben Carson falling flat on his face is showing such disrespect for a man who has spent half of his life using his surgical skills to heal and save the lives of so many children in this country. It is disgraceful to say the least.
Apparently, this disrespect for the doctor is because he had the audacity to speak from the heart of his Christian values with regard to marriage. Isn't this a country where a person has his God-given right as well as his constitutional right to voice his honest opinion? But maybe because the doctor lives in Maryland, which is one of the most liberal states in our country, he should not have spoken his conservative views. These cannot go over very well where these ultra-liberal policies are nurtured by the only daily newspaper in this area — The Sun.
My husband and I are both native-born Marylanders. We love this state. It has so much to offer: our fine medical and cultural institutions, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, the mountains of western Maryland, so much colonial and U.S. history and beautiful architecture.
You can keep Kevin Kallaugher's cartoons and for all of those in Maryland who do not respect a man of Dr. Carson's caliber when they see him.
