The book except apparently says the White House wanted him to apologize.  The message was sent through the organizers.  That is exactly how it works.  The president isn't going to pick up the phone and call him.    

Same thing happened a while back when someone had the audacity to write something that was entirely positive about the First Lady.  Someone from the White House (or affiliated with them) contacted the paper.

"the White House" does not mean the POTUS or FLOTUS were personally involved

you'd think that wouldn't need to be explained

Possibly.

We know he's not leading.


We know he doesn't know what the hell goes on in his own administration.

We know he can't talk without a teleprompter.

Hey, organizing those hunts might be keeping him busy.

i watched the video last night.  it really was women on the front line.  and the protesters weren't protesters - they were instigators - begging for a fight.

no doubt about it.  You know protesters... they hold signs, chant some lame phrases, and stay in one spot.  This crowd was clearly advancing, with yes, the women in the front line, just begging the BLM workers to do anything so they could fall on the ground and cry about federal brutality.

Seeing as they were blocking the road - already they deserve an ass-whooping. I'm sorry, but ANYONE who blocks a road to protest deserves to be run over by a car, I dont give a shit which party you're for.  Protest on the side of the road.  We can still see you, and you dont have to prevent people from getting where they're going.

I lost a lot of respect when I saw the video.  Feds trying to just stand still as the protesters were literally kicking a dog, with women up front, aggressively pushing at feds while blocking roads, begging for a beatdown so they could wear their scars on Hannity like they're some kind of heros.

Get.  The fuckk.  out of the street.  Seriously.  Protest 12 inches off the road so people can get home.  it's not all about you.

exactly

that's the video that I saw too

Oklahoma Protesters Threaten to “Secdee” From Union if Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos is not Cancelled

Saddlebridge Township, Oklahoma – Furious parents and citizens of Oklahoma took to the streets early Thursday, protesting against Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos.  Protesters allege the show is blatantly promoting an anti-Creationist agenda and is ‘standing against the Judeo-Christian moors and values of the Saddleback Township community and others nationwide.”
The first protests against Cosmos in the community took place some two weeks ago, after a local paper claimed an airing of Cosmos in a school caused several children to experience ‘demonic possession’.  Parents cite one kid became completely enamored with the show during a terrifyingly supernatural event linked with Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s narrative explaining the “God of the Gaps” theory.

Several weeks ago, citizens accused Tyson of using his Cosmos program to forward other agendas, not limited to a ‘homogay’ agenda, wizardry/haroldry, astrology and other vehemently anti-Christian teachings.


Concerned parents have accused Neil DeGrasse Tyson of ‘Ra’ worship and iconography, going as far as saying the titular narrator may be involved in a Wiccan Sun occult.
Delores Simmons, whose child was involved in the prior airing of Cosmos that precipitated the anti-science scare in Oklahoma, claims petitions are already going about to elect pro-Creation candidates for upcoming elections.

“If we allow this Tyson to keep publicly airing his beliefs, God just may strike us down with a cosmic meteor this summer.  That would be ironic justice if you ask me, so we should just take this show off now before that happens.”

Other citizens in Oklahoma agree.  The latest Rasmussen polls on the subject show that over 64% people in Oklahoma feel Cosmos is dangerous and carries a strong anti-theist and Creation message.

SaddleBridge Township Petition to Remove Cosmos From Local Television Affiliates

Cosmos is a dangerous television program with strong ties to the Satanic Ra occult.  The show veils itself under the guise of ‘inspiration science’, but unveils its wolf teeth every time Neil DeGrasse Tyson spouts anti-Creationist rhetoric that possesses the minds of Oklahoma’s children.

The parents of the Saddlebridge Community continue to feel Cosmos is inappropriate material for television and therefore must be removed from all programming within the state.  Following are examples of the dangers presents by Cosmos:  A Space Journey.

I guess it never occurred to these idiots to just change the channel

commercial, residential, and undeveloped property....all mixed in, and equipment/work vehicles for A-V. And I have a nice home but NOT an estate by any means.

Look into SEP IRA's to shelter and anything 179 Deductible

I max out the SEP every year (or very close)

The SEP reduces income tax but not SE Tax

I'm in CA but our property tax rates are not that bad (IMO) though not nearly as good as some states like CO

My family members all live in TX and their property tax rates are much higher although there is no state income tax

maybe Obama was one of the  prayer breakfast organizers that called.   That is reasonable in order to make the stretch the article did.

you think Obama spends his time organizing events like this (or any event)  ?

Are you kidding man

Maybe you think the POTUS personally organizes the White House Easter Egg hunt too

My guess is that the actual people who organized this who invited Carson (obviously he would have had to be invited to be a the key-note speaker) were embarrassed (and perhaps also offended) by his comments and felt bad (or likely pissed) that the guy they invited to be the key note speaker chose that venue to attack the direction in which he thought the country was going.   These people  (the actual organizers which Carson refers to) were the ones who did this

i.e

Exactly as Carson said which Bum posted

Quote
“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson wrote in the book.

“But within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

How do you know for sure that it's definitely incorrect?

How is what the atheists were doing different than what the theists are doing?  The theist stand there with their Bibles and students can take one if they wish.


you're suggesting that the source that you yourself posted is not correct ?

I'm going by this.  Sorry, it's all I got.

Religions:
Christian 33.39% (of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.74%, Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, non-religious 9.66%, atheists 2.01% (2010 est.)

Does not surprise me one bit.  Amazing how the most powerful man in the world can be so insecure. 

Carson: White House wanted me to apologize for 'offending' Obama
Published April 15, 2014
FoxNews.com

Conservative sage Dr. Ben Carson is claiming the White House was offended by his now-famous keynote address at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and asked at the time for an apology call to President Obama -- which he didn’t make.

The anecdote is found in Carson’s upcoming book “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future.”

Carson, who became a conservative sensation after the address, was highly critical of the direction of the country though he never blamed the president, who was sitting just a few feet away.

“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson wrote in the book.

“But within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

The passage was verified Tuesday by publisher Sentinel, a division of Penguin Group (USA).

Carson, a former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, also suggests in the book he has no plans to run for president in 2016 unless called by God. However, he has placed third in two recent straw polls and is being courted by the well-funded National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/15/carson-wh-says-his-prayer-breakfast-speech-offended-obama-asked-for-apology/

from what you posted it doesn't appear that this request came from Obama
22  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 16, 2014, 12:03:50 PM
Okay then, I do admit that my statement saying today's world population is mostly Christian is "probably" incorrect.

My statement should be rephrased as saying today's world population is mostly theist, and will always be.  Atheists will always be the minority, unless they start popping as many babies as theists do.  So I do understand why these atheists passing out literature at schools are so afraid.

not probably incorrect but definitely incorrect

btw - the atheist were not "passing out literature"

From the article in the first post in this thread

Quote
As with the Gideons, actual group members were not allowed to contact students, but the books were left for interested students to pick up and peruse.

and no one, other than you, has made the claim that atheist are "afraid" of christians or anything

that is just another one of your weird assertions based on nothing but your own beliefs

given your posts on this thread you seem to be the only one that feels threatened by any point of view that is contrary to your own

yeah, no offense to the cali representative, but it doesnt pass the smell test.

less than 2 months before an election... shady location is attacked for 7 straight hours, with help 1 hour away, and nobody can get there in time?   nope, doesn't pass smell test.   I know, there's no PROOF cause everyone insulates themselves and investigates themselves and Issa can't get an indictment for F&F, much less benghazi... but there is no way I buy the story "we didn't know anything, we couldn't stop it".   They sat quietly and let it happen.  That's what I believe, at least.

kind of like your belief that Obama intentionally didn't defend our diplomats because he didn't want to draw the attention of Glen Beck and the "CT'ers" who would somehow be upset that we killed 300 bad guys who were attacking us

Then why all the bullshit (lies) about protests over some half ass'd youtube video? The government is trying to cover the real reason the ambassador was there is the first place. but hey why question the government they always put our best interests first Roll Eyes

ask this guy

maybe he's part of the cover-up

25  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: benghazi benghazi benghazi on: April 15, 2014, 07:25:48 PM
there is evidence that they were attacked for 7 hours and nobody helped them.
There is evidence a team was an hour away, denied permission to get involved.
There is (according to beck) lots of evidence about shady shit going on there.

IMO, common sense dictates a US embassy doesnt get attacked for 7 hours without the POTUS knowing pretty quickly.

I think I'll trust the opinion of a Republican Congressman who has actually seen the evidence and would love nothing more than to hang something/anything Obama over a guy an internet message board who thinks Obama let this happen so as not to draw the attention of Glenn Beck and other "CT'ers" who would somehow be upset that he killed 300 "bad guys" who were attacking us
