I was saddened by Dr. Ben Carson's rhetoric ("Ben Carson's conservative views are drawn from the Bible" Mar. 30). Here is a person with such an amazing mind and such a great talent for healing. It would be wonderful if he could use those talents to help bring the GOP more in line with today's thinking instead of pushing it backward into the failed policies of the past.
I was surprised by his stance on corporal punishment in the raising of children. In his practice he must've seen many abused kids. He is such an icon that many frustrated, overwhelmed parents could use his words as an excuse to hit their children.
Hopefully his brilliance will shine through and he will be a real asset to his party. I hope so.
