A little insight into all the hullabaloo about Dr. Ben Carson’s statement that he would not want a Muslim to be the President of the United States. First of all, if you listened to his words carefully you would have heard him say he would support a Muslim candidate that could separate church and state if he were elected. We have heard all too often the term “Sharia Law” associated with Islam. This violates our Constitution and that’s what he was trying to get across with his statements.
Unfortunately, the media only heard the words that he would not vote for a Muslim and thus the uproar.
