Ben Carson Gets Standing Ovation at Liberty University, Responds to Recent Media Attacks

Dr. Ben Carson spoke to 12,000 students, faculty and guests at Liberty University on Wednesday. Carson was introduced to the sound of cheers and applause, as some held signs, “Run Ben Run.”

Responding to recent media scrutiny, Dr. Carson said, “I represent something the media ‘can’t stand.'”

He offered advice to students from Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord will all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Second year graduate student Russ Allen said, “I don’t think I saw a single person not stand here.”

Carson also said, “The real question is: Are we willing to stand up for those values and principles or will we allow ourselves to be intimidated by secular progressives?”
