Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says Islam is antithetical to the Constitution, and he doesn't believe that a Muslim should be elected president.
Carson, a devout Christian, says a president's faith should matter to voters if it runs counter to the values and principles of America.
Responding to a question during an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," he described the Islamic faith as inconsistent with the Constitution.
"I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation," Carson said. "I absolutely would not agree with that."
Perhaps somebody should direct Carson's attention to the following:
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
The President, like all elected officials in this country, are bound to honor and uphold the Constitution, not the Holy Bible.
It should not matter one little bit whether the President is a Christian, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist, or even an Atheist.
And the fact that it does to Ben Carson, to such an incredible degree, should indicate his lack of fitness to ever be elected to public office in this country.
