“Gentle Ben” was ambushed during an interview with Meet the Press; the host was Chuck Todd – Ben fell victim to a “gotcha” question. Todd led Ben into the trap by asking Ben if he believes Islam is consistent with the Constitution. Ben could have considered a couple of options at this time, but hind sight is always better than foresight. Truth is Ben was very precise and correct in his answer to Todd because in fact Islam isn’t consistent with our Constitution…
He could have said to Todd, what exactly inspires you to ask such a question or he could have said Todd if you’re wanting clarification on this, just read the Constitution and don’t take my word for it.
Chuck here’s what the Constitution says, Article VI of the U.S. Constitution is unambiguously clear:
“[N]o religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
Sharia Law is the Muslim law of the land encompassing all aspects of a Muslim’s life, not just religion but includes all legal issues too!
Instead of making this a religious issue against Dr. Carson merely consider these facts and you will immediately see why Ben will not support a Muslim President in our White House. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of our land and Sharia Law is the supreme law for Muslims. Once again Dr. Carson is absolutely correct in his answer to Chuck Todd.
Gentle Ben certainly has a strong case, because Islam is not consistent with the Constitution and here is one very powerful reason the kicks a Muslim out of the ballpark if running for President of the USA. Here’s a scenario, if a Muslim running for the Presidential office of the USA is dictated by his faith which means he or she follows Sharia Law; therein remains a huge problem.
Islam permits lying to deceive unbelievers and bring World Domination so needless to say who would want the person holding the most prestigious position in our Country lying to those(millions of Americans) who do not believe in Islam and the part about World Domination is more than a little scary.
As we speak there is an evil group of Muslims (ISIS) have been dreaming about a Caliphate.A caliphate is the Islamic form of government representing the political unity and leadership of the Muslim world.
Ben Carson was correct period, Islam is not and never will be consistent with our Constitution. No Muslim man or woman would ever be able to take the Presidential oath because Islam is first and foremost the governing law of a Muslim. The devout Muslims believe there is only one law to be followed and that just happens to be Sharia.
Article VI: The Constitution is the supreme law of the land Constitution: Article VI: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby.”
Shariah: “The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah.” (a1.1, Umdat al-salik or The Reliance of the Traveller, commonly accepted work of Shariah jurisprudence); “There is only one law which ought to be followed, and that is the Sharia.” (Seyed Qutb); “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” (Seyed Abul A’ala Maududi)
Shame on Rubio and Fiorina for spouting off on a subject that they definitely aren’t familiar with and unlike Dr. Carson; they are both exhibiting the actions of a true politicians trying to put one more notch in their political belt.
Dr. Carson said, “I can support a Muslim for President of the USA if that man or woman denounces “Sharia Law,” end of conversation.
Way to go “gentle Ben,” millions of Americans are proud of a man who will stand up for his Country, his Constitution and the people of America.
May God Bless America
