Dr. Benjamin Carson's biblical laden speech at the recent National Prayer Breakfast

Here is the 27 min. video of Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech at the recent National Prayer Breakfast.     

He began his speech by siting these scriptural passages:  Proverbs admonishing that the godless destroy their neighbor with their mouths, that a man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor and that a generous man will prosper; and God's promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that if his people will humble themselves and pray and seek his face and turn from their wicked ways, he will hear them, forgive their sins, and heal their land.
 
Carson also criticized political correctness that makes people afraid to express certain opinions on important issues for fear of the blacklash that comes with it.  He endorsed America's founding principles and its unique constitutional liberties. He also criticized the moral decay in our society, our government's fiscal irresponsibility, and our growing welfare state instead of pushing hard work, self-reliance and personal responsibility.

This is the only site I could readily locate the video of the speech, and I always prefer to hear the actual words instead of a columnist's reporting of them.

It is a popular delusion that the government wastes vast amounts of money through inefficiency and sloth. Enormous effort and elaborate planning are required to waste this much money. P.J. O'Rourke
