Ben Carson's comments about supporting a Muslim Candidate.

The Dr. is in.

First, let's be accurate about what he said.

Ben Carson was asked if he would support a Muslim candidate for President, on Sunday September 20th, 2015. He said that he would not support a Muslim for President of our Nation.Of course, a media firestorm ensued almost immediately. His words have been twisted and he was even accused of violating the U.S. Constitution! I do not see how anyone could even think of going that far. He can support who ever he chooses to in the future for the White House. I am amazed, even in this day and age, that the National Media is able to make a large case out of this.

Even in the age of political correctness, we should not be hearing the backlash of this. Let's face it, many women walking down the street have said into a microphone that they will vote for Hillary because she is a woman. Many other women have said they will not because we should not have a female president in the era of radical Islam. I have heard those comments by the scores. I have also heard that people will not support another Bush or Clinton. Many people said that they would not support a Catholic in J.F.K.'s era.

Isn't it everyone's right to support who they want to? of course it is! Ben Carson never should have been asked that question, but since he was, he told the truth.That is what I take away from this!

Why his answer can be supported.

Many people are saying that even though they do not want Sharia Law imposed in America, that Dr. Carson was wrong. Actually, that is exactly why he is right!

Thank about it this way. Did not President Obama say that it was un American to make changes by executive order, and did he not say that George W. Bush was unpatriotic to allow the national deficit to climb to $7,000,000,000.00? Yes he did. Yet once he took the oval office, he ballooned the deficit and has issued many executive orders, because those actions he wanted to take would never get approval.

So, what would prevent a Muslim American President from campaigning against Sharia law, but then slowly imposing it, little by little, as time went on? Nothing would. The brilliant Dr. Carson knows this, and now he is being persecuted for being honest about it!

Another point to consider.

I believe that Dr. Big Ben was 100% right because if you look at what their religion forbids, many concerns arise. Are not Muslims disallowed to say "God bless America" ? Are thay not supposed to stay silent during the pledge of allegiance and the singing of America's National Anthem, and American the Beautiful? These are valid questions and they are the reason that I support Dr. Ben Carson, and his latest truthful answer.

Do you agree with Dr. Carson for saying that he would not support a Muslim for U.S. President?

To my understanding, Dr. Carson is saying is that only Muslims who are committed to Sharia Law cannot be president because as president you have to uphold the Constitution, a document that flies in the face of Sharia Law. It’s interesting how the media is far less vocal about his exception.

Muslims, who are US citizens say God bless America all the time, they don't remain silent during the pledge of allegiance and the singing of America's National Anthem and American the Beautiful.

What planet are you from?

This planet. Name a famous Muslim who say those in public. I can name many who haven't but I ask you Suhail to name one.

The debate over Muslim or no Muslim is not at issue, the matter here is a man s peaking his mind and telling the truth. Would it be better to have another lying politician?

Politically correct has gone way, way too far. Honesty is what we need in this country and the honest answer to a question, whether we like it or not, should not condemn the person giving the answer.

Mike, I am with you. People have a right to their own opinion. My grandfather left Germany because of the "Thought police", There's no better place for me to go, so I will stand my ground.

Suhail you are right. I asked you to prove your point, you did not, nor do you have to.

Do I have to prove that I am from hear because I disagree with you? I have said nothing nasty to you, so you may want to ask why you need to go on someone else's blog and do it.

MikeSyrSutton,

You are correct! I apologize for the mistake. I admit I got carried away.

I just disagree with this, "Are not Muslims disallowed to say "God bless America" ? Are thay not supposed to stay silent during the pledge of allegiance and the singing of America's National Anthem, and American the Beautiful? These are valid questions and they are the reason that I support Dr. Ben Carson, and his latest truthful answer."

I came to the USA for studies in the 1980s. My relatives, siblings, and friends living in the USA are patriotic US citizens. I know that. However, I have seen that all of us have turned from being conservatives to liberals because of the policies of Republicans that are based on creating fear and hatred against Muslims and immigrants in general. I personally worked for Reagan-Bush campaign back in 1985 in their second term as a volunteer. Today, I feel ashamed of having done that back then.

I am simply against anything that divides humans on the basis of petty differences in skin colour, beliefs, origin, lifestyle, etc.

We should try to bring humanity together. Creating hatred subliminally leads to gruesome incidents like killing of former PM of Israel Mr. Yitzhak Rabin, our very own John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, etc.

I apologize once again for leaving offensive comments on your page. I should have been careful.
