Ben Carson Defends Muslim Comments: ‘Why Would You Take That Chance’ On A Muslim?’ [VIDEO].

Ben Carson, appearing on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, said he would be fine with a Muslim being president if that person were to “subjugate their religious beliefs to our constitution.” (RELATED: Carson: Islam Is Not Consistent With The Constitution) Carson also criticized Sharia law, suggesting, “When you have something that’s against the rights of women, against the rights of gays, subjugates other religions, and a host of things that aren’t compatible with our constitution, why in fact would you take that chance?” (RELATED: Carson Blames Political Correctness For Outrage Over Muslim Comments) Carson further claimed that “it doesn’t matter their religious background, if they accept American values and principles and are willing to subjugate their religious beliefs to our constitution, I have no problem with them.” Martha Raddatz: I want to go back to your controversial comments on the possibility of a Muslim president. The retired neurosurgeon and surging 2016 Republican candidate offered another controversial stance about Islam in America on Sunday, saying that he’s open to considering religion as probable cause for searches.The Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson on Sunday marked his surge to within one percentage point of the frontrunner Donald Trump with a return to his controversial comments about whether a Muslim could become US president.

WASHINGTON — 2016 Republican presidential contender and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson dug in Sunday on recent comments that a Muslim should not be America’s president.To the editor: I have to take exception to one detail of Andrew Burt’s concise opinion piece — his statement that it is clear Ben Carson is “treading on long-settled territory about Americans’ freedom to practice their religion without discrimination or fear.” (“A Muslim president?” Opinion, Sept. 24) It is only through constant vigilance and the willingness of citizens and officials to speak up against misinformed or erroneous characterizations that the Constitution can be preserved and its precepts honored. When asked on ABC’s “This Week” if he would listen to arguments from people advocating that one’s religion could provide probable cause to search the emails and calls of Syrian refugees being let into the U.S., Carson answered in the affirmative. “I personally don’t feel that way, but I would certainly be willing to listen to somebody who had evidence to the contrary,” Carson said. “I think that’s one of the problems, we get to our little corners, and we don’t want to listen to anybody.” “What we should be talking about is Islam and the tenets of Islam and where do they come from? He’s being pulled in a lot of different directions, tends to be a nice guy, and is a compromiser at a time when a lot of people on the right feel that too much compromise has already resulted in a situation that they’re not very happy with.

GOP presidential candidate Carson wants to disallow adherents of a particular religion — Islam — from becoming president? (“Carson takes aim at PC culture,” Sept. 23) And his rationale is that “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”? They come from Koran,” he added, diving back into his anti-Muslim comments from last week. “They come from, you know, the life works and examples of Mohammed.

I know there was a time that he expressed an interest in having the Pope come and now that’s occurred it seems like perhaps this is a great time to step down.” Dr. You know, and if you go back and you look at — what I would like for somebody to show me is an improved Islamic text that opposes sharia.” Amid the growing refugee crisis in Syria — which has resulted in increased calls for the U.S. to allow tens of thousands of them in — a number of conservative Republicans have called for intense vetting and oversight of anyone granted asylum in the U.S. You know throughout my medical career I constantly had people saying well this is the way it has to be done this is the way it’s always been done this can’t be done, I don’t listen to that stuff. I think there is a way to get it done. …I don’t know what the way is, but if I were in there, I would be talking with everybody I knew, familiarizing myself with every possible legal aspect, and there is, where there’s a will there’s a way.” Dr. To the editor: Donald Trump continues to make news, with words that should make every American shudder. (“Trump under fire for Town Hall exchange,” Sept. 19) Not something bad or controversial, Mr.

Carson and it was really quite clear, “I would not advocate we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.” You also talked about Sharia law, that they must denounce Sharia law. Carson discuss his stance on the death penalty: “[CARSON]: I think the death penalty is something that should be decided in a civil manner with the people in the area. [TAPPER]: So state-by-state decision? [CARSON]: Absolutely.

I interviewed Congressman Paul Ryan about this issue and he said that it’s unrealistic to demand that Planned Parenthood be defunded because the Constitution gives President Obama the power in an equal powers way and there’s just no way Congressman Ryan said that this can be forced on the President’s desk. Constitution says itself that no religious test… CARSON: Except that I have already said before that anybody from any religion, from any background, if, I told you what the criteria were for that. Good Americans and they gladly admit, at least privately, that they don’t accept sharia or the doctrines and they understand that Islam is a system of living and it includes the way that you relate to the government.
