News Headlines: Southern Adventist University Students Cover Ben Carson Event (And More!)

Southern Adventist University Students Cover Ben Carson Event. Student journalists from Southern Adventist University covered Ben Carson's book signing. Carson was in Chattanooga to promote his recent book, A More Perfect Union. His supporters circled a Barnes and Noble store waiting to get their books signed. From the Chattanooga Times Free Press, "Ben Carson Draws Hundreds to Barnes and Noble in Chattanooga." And from the Southern Adventist University student newspaper, the Southern Accent, "Accent Editors Shake Gifted Hands."

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

i’m thinking that ben carson isn’t really serious about winning the presidency…who ditches campaigning for a book tour when he’s gaining momentum and actually the frontrunner in at least one poll…


That is not true Jeremy. I read a response from him. The mainstream media twisted it again. He did not ditch his campaign. He has a Facebook account which you can see the daily update of his campaign.

Dr. Ben went to Chattanooga because of the extremely large number of SDAs in that area of TN, NC, GA, ALA. They could take the opportunity to see this famous surgeon, many of whom probably have his book telling of his life. And are there to purchase the book and to shake the "Famous Hands."
Chattanooga is the “home” of our most famous “Southern Adventist University.” Home of Little Debbie and McKee Baking Company.
There are also lots of Republicans who would also be pleased to shake those "Famous Hands."
Collegedale, TN was also the FIRST City in the state of TN to provide insurance to same-sex couples when one was employed by the City of Collegedale.
Yes! The Seventh day Adventists on the City Council voted to approve it. And it was overwhelmingly approved by the SDA church members who made comments on the Collegedale SDA church pastor’s phone.
Of course this was BEFORE the vote at SA2015.
Connections is an SDA church group meeting in the Collegedale Academy chapel. It is ALL WELCOMING. A branch of the University church. Connections broadcasts its Sabbath service on-line each week.

I predict that the Iowa Caucus (Mon Feb 1) and the NH Primary (Tue Feb 9) will reveal that the polls are not predicting very well

And he doesn’t stand a chance in the General Election. He’s all over the place when it comes to his positions on guns, on abortion, etc. He’s just a “nice guy” whom everybody likes, but nobody would consider him as a leader of our nation.

I hope.


Dr. Ben Carson today is, in every American breakfast and dinner table conversation. What’s going to happen but Americans powerless to stop it? Ben Carson is putting Seventh-day Adventist on the world map from his colossal winning finish line to his robust salesmanship of Adventism, bigger , larger and better than all the elected Adventist General Conference Presidents. Of course, it’s USA; the world is listening and paying attention to the US Presidential race. Ben Carson is catching the attention with deep interest from the Islamic countries. Why? Carson and Mohammad enjoy two common things - Friday sunset worship and pork not served on their breakfast and dinner menus. Someone mention Carson doesn’t stand a chance in the US Presidential Election? But, Carson does stand a standing ovation in every Muslim breakfast and dinner conversation. He’s a revered healer, a vegetarian who is a poor hunter who never held a gun in his life but scalpels. Now, we know what his positions are on abortion and guns. Ben Carson is gaining respect from the spirituality of the world
