Ben Carson has come under fire for his recent assertion that a Muslim should not be President of the United States and, to some extent, he’s still not backing down.
On September 23, someone forwarded me a blast email that the Carson campaign had sent out that morning. The subject line of message was: “I will not back down.” Evidently, Carson isn’t rethinking his position because he’s just that patriotic and fearless. He’s cares that much about the future direction of the country. He’s that committed to the principles outlined in the U.S. Constitution and we all should be so very thankful for his candidacy.
If you’ve been following the latest “controversy” over my comments about Islam, you know the arrows are out for me.
I will need your help to push back, but I want you to know exactly where I stand. These are my beliefs and I will not back down:
Many parts of Sharia Law are not compatible with the U.S. Constitution. Under Sharia, homosexuals — men and women alike — must be killed. Women must be subservient. And people following other religions must be killed as well.
There are many peaceful Muslims who do not adhere to these beliefs. But until these tenets are fully renounced I cannot advocate any Muslim candidate for President.
I also can’t advocate supporting Hillary Clinton for President by the way.
Because I shared my honest opinion, I’ve come under intense fire from the media, nearly every leading Democrat, and even some of my Republican peers.
