Ben Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House

Republican Presidential hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson tells The Hill that presidents shouldn’t be sworn in on a Koran.

 

In an interview with The Hill, Carson opened up about why he believes a Muslim would be unfit to serve as commander in chief.

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said, referencing the Islamic law derived from the Koran and traditions of Islam. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”

Carson said that the only exception he’d make would be if the Muslim running for office “publicly rejected all the tenants of Sharia and lived a life consistent with that.”



“Then I wouldn’t have any problem,” he said.

However, on several occasions Carson mentioned “Taqiyya,” a practice in the Shia Islam denomination in which a Muslim can mislead nonbelievers about the nature of their faith to avoid religious persecution.

“Taqiyya is a component of Shia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals,” Carson said.

    Dr. Carson, you are the only person who has brought up the subject of Taqiyya and it is an important tenant of Islam. Please, please keep speaking out and don’t back down. We are all being lied to, deceived, and will be destroyed by our ignorance!!!

    If we had a Muslim President who was the same type of Muslim that Obama is Christian, it probably wouldn’t make much difference.

    Their end goal is to usher in the apocalypse. They are already infiltrating major countries. Sharia is their law. Sharia is the mirror opposite of our Constitution. Under SHARIA women have little rights. Nothing is done to the man who rapes a woman but the woman is stoned to death. I can’t understand why the liberals are promoting Muslims.

      Liberals are supporting muslims because they wish to self destruct. That, or they are just incredibly stupid.
