Dr. Ben Carson on Muslim Comments: ‘I Meant EXACTLY What I Said’

Republican presidential candidate and political newcomer, Dr. Ben Carson, who has been surging in the polls recently, nudging against frontrunner Donald Trump, is standing strong on his comments that a Muslim could not be an American president because Sharia Law is not compatible to the United States Constitution.

In case you missed it, Dr. Carson has been under extreme fire for stating the obvious, that Muslims who don’t believe in the Constitution and its concepts like freedom of speech and freedom of religion could never take the oath of the presidency.

Ben Carson took to Facebook with a powerful and principled post in Monday night, refusing to cower to the political correctness police that refuses to criticize the religion responsible for almost all of terrorism around the globe.

Dr. Carson courageously pointed out that those Democrats and “Republicans” who criticize his stance must realize that Muslims who refuse to accept the Islamic tenant of Sharia Law, along with their anti-constitutional and anti-American beliefs, are supporting the murder of all homosexuals and the denigration of all women.

Ben Carson wrote that until these beliefs are revoked, any Muslim would not be qualified to be an American president (emphasis added):

The first issue I want to deal with tonight is the stories today about my comments yesterday when I was asked if I would support a hypothetical Muslim candidate for President. I responded “I would not advocate for that” and I went on to say that many parts of Sharia Law are not compatible with the Constitution. I was immediately attacked by some of my Republican peers and nearly every Democrat alive.

Know this, I meant exactly what I said. I could never support a candidate for President of the United States that was Muslim and had not renounced the central tenant of Islam: Sharia Law.

Those Republicans that take issue with my position are amazing. Under Islamic Law, homosexuals – men and women alike – must be killed. Women must be subservient. And people following other religions must be killed.

I know that there are many peaceful Muslims who do not adhere to these beliefs. But until these tenants are fully renounced…I cannot advocate any Muslim candidate for President.

In a blockbuster interview with the Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill on Monday, Ben Carson exposed the Muslim principle of Taqiyya, which allows lying as long as it furthers the Muslim cause.

Leftist heads exploded on Sunday when Carson told Chuck Todd of NBC’s Meet the Press that faith matters when picking a president, especially when that candidate’s religion is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution.

“Should a president’s faith matter? Should your faith matter to voters?” Chuck Todd asked Dr. Carson.

“Well, I guess it would matter what that faith is,” Carson answered. “If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem,” he explained.

“So, do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?” Todd asked in a follow-up question.

“No, I do not. I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely do not agree with that,” Carson boldly answered.
