The Minnesota Family Council, a group that supports conservative social issues, will feature Dr. Ben Carson as keynote speaker at its May 6th annual dinner.
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, has become an author and a leading spokesman for conservative family issues such as opposition to non-traditional marriage and abortion.
As a doctor at Johns Hopkins, he was known for leading a surgical team that separated twins conjoined at the head in 1987.
The Minnesota Family Council says its mission is: “To nurture and defend families by restoring biblical truth in our culture.”
The May 6 dinner’s theme is “Restoring our Foundations: A Prescription for America.” It will be at the Doubletree in Bloomington; registration is at 6:15p.m. Tickets are $150 in advance, but the cost is $55 for pastors, legislators and guests under 30.
