Dr. Ben Carson, 2016 Republican Presidential Candidate, made some "controversial" comments in regards to a Muslim becoming President. The Leftist media has jumped onto what Carson said and have tried to twist his words into something that they aren't. Dr. Carson said nothing wrong and didn't in any way, shape, or form, go against the Constitution in saying he wouldn't support a Muslim being president.
The issue that Mr. Ben Carson brings up, I would say from my perspective, show that Ben Carson is implying islamophobia in this statement. Faith has little to no impact on what makes you a leader. As an example, Bernie Sanders believes in Judaism and the Torah would be his holy book. What is wrong about this statement is how he doesn't think he make an informed opinion about Islam and what it actually is. Furthermore, the approval rating of Muslims in the United States is lower than atheists! Which implies that we dislike Islam which was actually based from Christianity mind you, than the absence of a God and Mr. Ben Carson is no exclusion to that message.
I think that we have a special nation that is accepting of all religions. I, personally, couldn't support someone to be the commander in chief that practices Sharia Law. That is not meant to be a generalization about all muslims in America. I think Dr. Carson made it very clear that a muslim can run, but he couldn't support them in becoming president. Frankly, I heard no Islamophobia in his statement and just saw a man stating a point about what he believes in. He didn't say anything negative regarding muslims, he only shared his opinion on Sharia Law and its compliance with the United States Constitution. If a muslim were to renounce Sharia law to be below the constitution I don't beleive Dr. Carson would have a problem with that person being president. To go farther people of ALL faiths that win the highest office in the land MUST not lead the American people based on their religious beliefs regardless of the religious beliefs they may own.
