Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House (And the problem is...?)
The Hill ^ | 09/20/15 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 09/21/2015 1:37:16 PM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, telling The Hill in an interview on Sunday that whoever takes the White House should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”

Carson ignited a media firestorm in a Sunday morning interview with Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," in which he said he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.”

“I absolutely would not agree with that,” Carson said.

In an interview with The Hill, Carson opened up about why he believes a Muslim would be unfit to serve as commander in chief.

The left/media better watch out.

If they push this too far, people are going to actually start thinking about the substance of the issue

and pierce the PC veil of silence.

I will point out that the constitution exempts the President from working on Sundays.

If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

If it intended to have a Muslim President, it would have exempted him from working on Fridays.

Exactly.

The more they allow Carson to make this point in a low-key and self-assured way — it is bound to make some people think about the truth in it.

Carson should ask the media this question “Would a Muslim President really be capable of defending Israel’s right to exist when Muslims despise Israel?” We already have a Muslim Jew hating President in the White House, look at what he has done with relations with Israel, we don’t need another one..EVER!!!

Carson would also be the perfect person to bring up the dysfunctionality of the inner city culture and the causes and cures for it.

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said, referencing the Islamic law derived from the Koran and traditions of Islam. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.” Carson said that the only exception he’d make would be if the Muslim running for office “publicly rejected all the tenants of Sharia and lived a life consistent with that.”

 “Then I wouldn’t have any problem,” he said.......Well said sir!!!

President Obama:

This is why you didn't go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:

* It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner - "I am one of you."
* It was you who on ABC News referenced - "My Muslim faith."
* It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
* It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict -"I will stand with the Muslims."
* It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that - "I am a Muslim."
* It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
* It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
* It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
* It was you who purposefully omitted - "endowed by our Creator" - from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
* It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ's Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the 'HOLY' Quran.
* It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.
* It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
* It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.
* It was you who ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.
* It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
* It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
* It was you who said that NASA's "foremost mission" was an outreach to Muslim communities.

The leftist mediabots thought that Carson would bow down in repentance, begging forgiveness for having committed the unforgiveable sin - saying the truth about a certified victim group.

I think the reason the left is so bat[feces] nuts when anyone brings this up is that their “driving entity” knows that he must operate in stealth against Christianity or he will be vehemently opposed and defeated.

Our next vice president Ted Cruz was on Neil Cavuto's show today and had the answer as per our constitution:

Cruz said religious convictions should have no bearing on one’s fitness for the Oval Office. “You know, the Constitution specifies there shall be no religious test for public office and I am constitutionalist,”

Why does the media raise such a raucous indignation when somebody thinks that Obama is a Muslim?

Among the Jews the religious lineage is transmitted through the mother and among the Muslims through the father.

Obama’s father was Muslim and according to Islamic law, Obama was Muslim at birth and was educated as a Muslim by his Muslim stepfather. That is the reason Obama found the Muslim prayers the most beautiful sound in the world and always calls the Koran Holy while he never refers as Holy when mentioning the Bible.

Apostasy is punished by death by Islamic law, unless is a fake conversion to another faith in order to advance the expansion of the Islamic caliphate through the world, that is called taqiyya and is one of the main moral tenets of their religion.

According to Obama he converted to Christianity by the Rev Wright, another fake Christian and follower of the Black liberation theology, a corruption of the Gospels with the main Marxist tenants and praxis. Rev Wright’s sermons were characterized by their hatred towards the United States and the White people. Wright told the Obamas, “don’t Bless America, rather ask God Damn America”.

The media tries to deny the unquestionable fact that Obama was Muslim until his dubious conversion to Christianity. Since the Muslims have not publicly condemned his apostasy it might be assumed that Obama is a taqiyya president and his actions confirm it.

Leftist ideology cannot be defended logically,
and that’s why they invented PC
and why they prefer to eliminate opposition
rather than defeat it by showing how their ideology is superior - they can’t.

Once the PC wall goes down, they’re toast, and they know it. That’s why they’re so upset.
