Ben Carson: No Muslim president
While on Meet the Press this morning, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said he is unable to support a Muslim president. The sharpened saws of the left-wing media are already out for him. Carson didn't explain his views in detail, so I will help out.
Unlike Christianity, there is no separation clause between Islam and civil government--they are one and the same. While it's easy to find a spokesperson from an apologist Islamic groups such as Hamas-linked CAIR to denounce terrorism, finding a Muslim mouthpiece to do the same with Sharia law is a real challenge.
For instance: If I steal a woman's purse and I get caught--I'll end up in prison. But under sharia law, I could have my hand chopped off and be flogged. Sharia law advocates wife-beating and the death penalty for those who leave Islam.
Carson, a devout Christian, was also asked on Meet the Press if Islam is "consistent with the Constitution."
"No, I do not," Carson replied.
