Mild Mannered Brain Surgeon Ben Carson has said that a Muslim who believes in Sharia Law should not become President of America. Not by law but by the choice of the people. Who agrees with him in Politics?
Practically no one.
First you can watch Carson make his point on video:
What do almost all of the politicians have to say?
He immediately faced criticism from Republican candidates Cruz and Graham.
Graham tweeted that the doctor “is not ready to be Commander-In-Chief. America is an idea, not owned by a particular religion.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), also pursuing the Democratic nomination for president,
“You judge candidates for president not on their religion, not on the color of their skin, but on their ideas, on what they stand for,” he said.
In a series tweets on Sunday, the former Maryland governor condemned Carson’s comments. In one tweet, he wrote: “American people are better than latest Trump/Carson/GOP anti-Muslim bigotry. Hate is not an American value. #diversityisourgreateststrength”. O’Malley followed up by noting: “It’s sad to see the party of Lincoln being led by candidates who choose bigotry against Muslim-Americans over ‘united we stand.’”
Many pols pointed out the religious test clause in Constitution. The Ku Klux Klan is a form of a religion, so it is not against the Constitution for a KKKer to become President.
In fact one did, Harry Truman was an admitted Klan member. But is it a good idea to elect a KKK member President?
What Carson said is not against the Constitution, he said he would not vote for a Sharia Muslim, one that believes in a religious dictatorship that makes all non-Muslims second class citizens. A society in which it is required that President Barrack Obama be beheaded. That is what Sharia means, that all human rights are eliminated, if they conflict with the Koran.
What rights? Religious freedom for one, what Carson detractors claim to believe in.
In Islamic law (sharia), if someone who was a Muslim like Obama’s official Indonesian school records state he was, and then converts to Christianity the standard procedure is to execute him, normally by beheading. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostasy_in_Islam#Execution
Since Obama now claims to be a Christian under Sharia law he should be beheaded.
There are five Sharia legal factions in Islam, and they all agree on this:
Hanafi – recommends three days of imprisonment before execution, although the delay before killing the Muslim apostate is not mandatory. Apostates who are men must be killed, states the Hanafi Sunni fiqh, while women must be held in solitary confinement and beaten every three days till they recant and return to Islam.[not specific enough to verify]
Maliki – allows up to ten days for recantation, after which the apostate must be killed. Both men and women apostates deserve death penalty according to the traditional view of Sunni Maliki fiqh.[not specific enough to verify]
Shafi’i – waiting period of three days is required to allow the Muslim apostate to repent and return to Islam. After the wait, execution is the traditional recommended punishment for both men and women apostates.[not specific enough to verify]
Ja’fari – waiting period not necessary, but may be granted according to this Shia fiqh. Male apostate must be executed, states the Jafari fiqh, while a female apostate must be held in solitary confinement till she repents and returns to Islam.
So all the politicians that claim Carson is against religious freedom knowingly of ignorantly want to end religious freedom in America and bring about the execution of Obama for claiming to be a Christian.
