Every so often something capable of shattering polite resolve comes my way. Try as I might, no measure of restraint equals the sentiment of scraping my brain off the wall. A painting in Ben Carson’s home detonated a splatter so explosive, its doubtful I’ll ever retrieve all pieces of blown mind.
I call the painting “bathrobe buddies”. I’m told the boys aren’t in bathrobes – Carson is shrouded in his Doctor’s coat, Jesus in resurrection robe – sorry, it looks like bathrobes to me.
The first public glimpse came in 2009 when Carson invited Baltimore Magazine into his Maryland mansion. The image below was taken in November 2014 by photographer Mark Makela – a tour of Carson’s eight bedroom, twelve bathroom home revealed columns decorated with gold leaf, and walls adorned with images of Carson.
Carson, a Seventh Day Adventist told Baltimore Magazine “I don’t have to be politically correct here”. He claims the great pyramids were built by the biblical prophet Joseph to store grain collected in “the seven years of plenty”. Great link below –
Whatever Ben Carson believes, however politically incorrect his home and notions may be, no matter how intently he waits for end times or conducts his life – the man is free to do so. The slope doesn’t become slippery until pondering Carson the Republican presidential candidate.
Carson’s Jesus painting hangs near a biblical quote inscribed on the wall.
“By Humanity and The Fear of The Lord Are Riches, Honor and Life”
Last week Carson called Syrian refugees “rabid dogs” – mighty Christian of you Mr. Carson. I wonder what Jesus might say.
