Former GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson took the stage of the Republican National Convention Tuesday night and compared Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to Lucifer.

But prior to talking about how Clinton was the devil and how Donald Trump could lead the U.S. forward and, the retired neurosurgeon said he needed to make one thing clear.

"I'm not politically correct, and I hate political correctness," he said. "It's time for us to stand up and shout out about what we believe in."

Carson also said voting Clinton into office is something "America may never recover from."

"Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors was Saul Alinsky," said Carson. "And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone she greatly admired. And let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. So he wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. It acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom."

Carson, a prominent figure in the evangelical community, continued: "Now think about that. This is our nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator; a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are one nation under God.

"This is a nation where every coin in our pockets and every bill in our wallet says 'In God We Trust.' So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?"
