Carson TRIPLES DOWN “U.S. Should Never Have A Theocracy”

Conservative Presidential hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson: US ‘Should Never Have a Theocracy’

Carson says the United States should never have a theocracy in response to his recent anti-Muslim remarks on television. (Sept. 22)

As Reported By Newsmax:

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson slammed the media and pundits who’ve been critical of him over ‘theoretical’ comments he made about supporting a hypothetical Muslim president.

“When the situation arises, and we have someone in that situation, we’ll talk about it. Why get off into a theoretical situation? There’s so many important issues. Why is it people are not interested in the important issues that are going on?” he said during a Tuesday press conference in Ohio. He mentioned the refugee situation in Syria and the problems going on with the American educational system as examples.

Carson doubled down saying any president of any faith has to place the Constitution above personal religious beliefs.

“They must place it above their personal beliefs,” Carson said during an appearance in Sharonville, Ohio. “If you’re not willing to do that, you should not be running for president.”

But Carson said he does see a way to support a more moderate Muslim for office, complaining that his comments were misunderstood and that “it seems hard for people to actually hear English and understand it.”

“I said I would support anyone regardless of their background, if in fact, they embrace American values and our Constitution, and are willing to place that above their beliefs,” Carson told the press conference, held before his scheduled rally. (Read more here)

    im curious if Mr West supports him or more whom he likes so far, thank you for the articles

  • Tiredofsocializm

    I admire Dr. Carson for sticking by his statements and explaining why!

  • Kingdom Ambassador

    Sorry, we’re living under one presently, the same one Carson will swear allegiance to if elected.

    When one understands that idolatry is not so much about statues as it is statutes, it becomes clear that all governments are theocratic, serving either the true God or some false god, demonstrated by what laws they keep and consider the supreme law of the land.

    QUESTION: Were the governments in the Old Testament under the god Baal (or any other false god named in the Old Testament) theocracies?
    ANSWER: Of course, they were.

    QUESTION: Was Baal (or any other god named in the Bible) real or were they merely ancient forms of We the People?
    ANSWER: Merely ancient forms of We the People


    “…There is no escaping theocracy. A government’s laws reflect its morality, and the source of that morality (or, more often than not, immorality) is its god. It is never a question of theocracy or no theocracy, but whose theocracy. The American people, by way of their elected officials, are the source of the Constitutional Republic’s laws. Therefore, the Constitutional Republic’s god is WE THE PEOPLE.

    “People recoil at the idea of a theocracy’s morality being forced upon them, but because all governments are theocracies, someone’s morality is always being enforced. This is an inevitability of government. The question is which god, theocracy, laws, and morality will we choose to live under?…”

    I am totally in disbelief that ANYONE who believes in American constitution and law and justice would even consider this question of a Muslim President ‘for real’. I would have asked the moderator if he was joking??? Don’t people know by now that Muslims have their own laws and cultures and its based on SHARIA LAW???? OK, anyone. Do we want SHARIA LAW to infiltrate law in the US?? I was supporting Carly Fiorina until I saw her PC answer on a Muslim Presidency. Sorry, Carly… just lost your backbone, my respect and lots of supporters. STAY STRONG, BEN!!

    • Dorrie

      We’re seeing it seep into this country and so far, at least 50 judges have found on the SIDE of Sharia in America. It’s incomprehensible that this could even happen, but it has.

    • Dave In Arizona

      Those people, Glenna, are called liberals and progressives.

  • carlton goodson

    the Constitution is a law that was formed with GOD in mind but the great minds in Washington think it needs to be translated. NO! its to the point NO! translation needed!

    • Dorrie

      Very true, Carlton, but our schools are no longer teaching Constitution or Federalist Papers, they’re hiding them from students so they are dumbed down about our origins!

  • NixTyranny

    Flashback to 2012 & it was George Stephanopoulos helping Dems by planting the phony “war on women” issue with his ridiculous should government be ripping birth control out of the hands of women question.

    Fast forward to now and it is Chuck Todd introducing a hypothetical Muslim President issue.

    Please, Repubs, don’t play this media/Democrat-operative game and tell guys like George Stephanopoulos & Chuck Todd to f-off, we aren’t playing their game anymore!

  • Amboyduke

    Ted R. Weiland…
    Interesting points you make…and as imperfect as all human governments are, they, for the most part implement some form of moral structure and rule of law based on “religious” tenants.
    The most cruel and vicious governments in human history, I would say, have been those established by rulers who were atheist; a few examples…Ghenghis Khan, Hitler, Mao, and….Islamic.
    It can be said that the government itself can be vieweed as a “religion”, especially in the case of the Nazi’s and Hitler. Hitler viewed National Socialism as a Religion.
    Hitler loved Islam and Islam loved Hitler. The common denominatoer was their hatred of the Jew.
    The gigantic difference between Islam and all other religions is Islam is the ONLY one that is based on hatred of the non believer to the point of killing him/her.
    That’s not religion, that’s true TYRANNY.
    Convert, pay money to stay alive, or DIE.
    Uniquely Islamic. Wonderfully Islamic. Hideously Islamic.
    Also, it’s the only one that states it is acceptable to lie to promote the belief.
    Acceptable to LIE!
    Wow…it’s Okay to “deceive” to promote their wonderful religion.
    Any group that believes that, and THEY DO believe it, would be less than trustworthy in any endeavour they undertook, including running for public office in a western democracy.
    Sharia law is barbaric and cruel…and their agenda is to establish this sharia driven theocracy world wide.
    Ben Carson is absolutely correct in everything he says…any government based solely on a religious believe would be wrong…but one based on Islam would be far more than wrong, it would wicked and evil beyond your wildest nightmare.

  • Jeff Noncent

    I agree with Dr. Benjamin Carson

  • Mable Austin

    he not stand by it. he cave

    • Dorrie

      No he didn’t cave and please speak English.

      • Mable Austin

        first thing i would like to say is. don’t tell me how to write.
        and your right Ben did not cave ty

        • Dorrie

          Ok, Mable, which is it??? Your first post said “he cave.” Then your second one said he didn’t. And it’s YOU’RE right, not “YOUR”. If you want to be taken seriously, it’s important to understand grammar and English. Just trying to help 🙂

          • Mable Austin

            I had made 3 post. i was so upset thinking Ben cave to the news people. However Ben made a remark to let me know what he thinks and feels. And he not going to let me down. By the way thank you for your help.

  • Mable Austin

    I need to retract my last 3 statement i was so mad thinking that Ben cave due to the news. I let my 81 year old friend read what i did. And he told me that Ben was standing to the only statement he made so i am very sorry Ben for not trusting you .

    • Dorrie

      Nicely stated and I concur.

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    America is already a “theocracy”, and its “god” is “We the People” from the Preamble of the Constitution, which the ‘people’ have set above Yahweh and His Holy Word.

    • Dorrie

      Not true. Our Constitution was formed on Biblical principals and We The People are NOT above God in any way, shape or form. However, at this point, the Supreme Court seems to think THEY are and that’s why it’s time that We The People did something about it! They have become tyrants and if we allow it to continue, it’s our own fault.

      • Gregory Alan of Johnson

        Read Isaiah 33:22 and make a decision. Either the Lord is God or the Constitution is.

        • Dorrie

          Again, the Constitution was framed on Biblical principals. We are a country of laws, as it should be, not a Theocracy. And while I most ASSUREDLY believe that if law comes against God’s precepts, I stand against that law – just as Kim Davis did. I believe the 5 Justices were wretchedly TYRANNICAL and should be impeached.

        • Dorrie

          Gregory, this is a country of laws and our Constitution PROHIBITS a theocracy, always has and you should celebrate that!

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            Read the following, then tell me how much I should “celebrate”:
            How you see “theocracy” and how I see it are two very different definitions. Mine sees Mankind setting their own “gods” before Yahweh, which is idolatry and has been going on for longer than the “United States of America” has been in official existence. Since the Constitution is secular, not Christian, it also has become an idol. Masons started infiltrating Churches back in the early 1750’s and steered the weak away from biblical standings and faith.
            Read the above pdf and gain a true comprehension about what’s really happened.

          • Dorrie

            Gregory, that might be YOUR opinion, but not the opinion of the MAJORITY of us who love BOTH God and country. 😉

            I don’t need to read what you’ve been indoctrinated with, sorry. I believe in God’s Word – above all else. And if or when government does what SCOTUS recently did, then I will not comply. Simple

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            If you support the Constitution, then you do not support the Bible.
            The “majority” are hypnotized, as I once was and am no longer.
            Which 501c3 non-profit masquerading as a “Church” do you attend?

          • Dorrie

            OH BS!! When I went into the Army, I took an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies foreign or domestic and you sound like a domestic enemy! I am a God loving, American patriot!

            You must belong to some hideous cult!

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            Then, while being your Romans 10:9 Brother in Christ, I’m also your Constitutional enemy. Have fun figuring out which one comes first and what to do about it.

          • Dorrie

            I don’t have to figure it out, you’re the one who is confused! LOL!!

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            By the power of The Holy Spirit, my thinking is more clear than ever in my life. This one’s on you.

          • Dorrie

            For mentally disturbed folks like you, it’s sure easy to throw around “The Holy Spirit” when you feel it fits your twisted mind. I’m praying for you, Gregory, because you truly are confused and lost. And may Almighty God forgive you for your ignorance and the damage you are doing to those who know you!

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            Thank you. Then one of us will be getting revelation soon.

          • Dorrie

            The wonderful thing about MY faith is that I know I will spend eternity with my Holy God. I hope you find your way out of your confusion and into repentance.

            be well…

          • Gregory Alan of Johnson

            Jesus Christ became my Lord/Savior 7/5/1991 @10:30am, and I could show you the place it happened. That has not changed. Hosea 4:6 for you, dear Sister, in the name of Yeshua.
            I’ll see you with the Lord, because I’ll be there as well.

          • Dorrie

            You have a LONG way to go, Gregory. I’m Messianic Jew and have been born-again since 1958. Again, I will tell you that you don’t know Yeshua. And I won’t be replying to your anti-American nonsense any further.

    • dark477

      you really don’t get what “theocracy”, means do you?

      • Gregory Alan of Johnson

        Not from your POV. You and I don’t see much the same way.

  • Dorrie

    VERY frustrating to go to reply to an EXCELLENT post, to find it’s been removed! What kind of godless moderators does Col West have for his comment threads!!
