Man Behind New “Compassion And Civility” Think Tank To Pray With Hate Group Against LGBTQ Equality Act

Two weeks ago Ben Carson launched a think tank aimed as dispelling notions that conservatives are “deplorable and stupid,” when what they want is “compassion and civility.”

Today’s press release from Tony Perkins:

Tomorrow, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on one of the greatest attacks on the First Amendment to ever be considered in the hallowed halls of Congress: the deceptively-named “Equality Act.”

We have been warning about it for some time because it represents a grave threat — not just on one issue — but to many of the values that our nation holds dear.

The Equality Act would overhaul our federal civil rights framework to mandate abortion access and special privileges for sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), leaving many to suffer the consequences, including women, children, medical professionals, and people of faith.

Tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET at, I will be joined by Dr. Ben Carson, founder and chairman of the newly-launched American Cornerstone Institute, and one who has demonstrated grace in the face of hostility.

Join us tonight as we discuss significant issues, set our hearts on the only One who can bring healing in our lives and nation, and ask God for the courage to live out our faith in the face of an increasingly hostile culture.
