ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson raised concerns about religious freedom saying the "PC" police are trying to "negate our faith," at the Faith & Family Presidential Forum at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. "I don't have any problem what so ever, with any two adults regardless of their sexual orientation doing what ever they want to do in their private lives," Carson said. And if they want to get a lawyers, so they can write up a contract so that they can have visitation rights, and share property, I don't have any problem with that," he said. "What I do have a problem with is overturning what the Bible says, and this is the camel's nose under the tent," he said. "If you can negate this part of the Bible, or that part of the Bible, you can negate the whole thing and that is what the whole process is," Carson added. "They want to negate our faith in this country, and that is why it is important that people of faith be willing to actually stand up for what they believe in and not be worried about the PC police. we need to put them back in their place because we are the owners of this country." The latest Augusta Chronicle poll shows Carson trailing in South Carolina winning 5 percent of the vote for the state's primary to be held Feb. 20.
