Ben Carson is the new darling of the right. Let’s not forget his role on W’s Bioethics Council. He is/was an adament oppent to stem cell research on ethics grounds. He is a devout 7th Day Adventist, who lets his religious views bleed over into his political ones. For example, he supports a flat tax system, possibly one of the most regressive and burdensome systems for underprivilaged, because it is based on a bibilical principle (tithing).
