Again taking to his Facebook page, Dr. Ben Carson “clarified” his previous Easter statement with the following:

“In my opinion, being tolerant of someone else’s beliefs is not a denial of faith in Christ as our Savior. Through our example of acceptance and love, we have the ability to attract rather than repel others. We must remember that we are all God’s children and that our Savior died for everyone, whether they accept the sacrifice or not. The way in which we treat others is critical, and we should not make the mistake of thinking that those who believe and behave differently than us are not good people.”

If it was meant to help matters, then the second message has failed. Within moments of the posting, conservative Christians who were upset by the original were even more outraged.
