It has been a rough week for HUD secretary Ben Carson and his family.
They have been under attack from atheists with the “Freedom From Religion Foundation” (FFRF) and “Citizens for Reponsibility and Ethics in Washington” (CREW) are attacking President Trump and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson for holding a Bible study during a weekly meeting.
Ben Carson, a very devout Christian had these stunning words to say to the atheist attackers:
“I refuse to be intimidated by anti-religious groups into relinquishing my spirituality or religious beliefs. One of the principles of our nation‘s founding is freedom of religion. I will not stop being a Christian while in service to this country, in fact, it is my faith that helps me serve the nation even better.”
Carson’s Facebook post was like by over 35,000 people who aren’t ashamed to have GOD back in the White House!
When Carson and his family realized the extent of the support they were getting from their fellow Christians, they were overwhelmed with gratitude. On Saturday, a message was posted to the Ben & Candy Carson Twitter account:
“When I posted a statement about the attacks on our family, I never could have imagined this outpouring of support and prayers. I’m truly humbled and encouraged by all the messages embodying Christian and family values. We appreciate your continued prayers.” – Merlynn Carson
It was written by Merlynn Carson, the wife of Ben Carson’s son, Ben Carson Jr. The message clearly shows the appreciation for all the prayers and support they’ve received. We are blessed to live in a nation with so many devoted Christians who will always take care of eachother.
Keep the whole Carson family in your prayers this week!
