Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is taking some criticism regarding his comment that a Muslim should not be President of the United States of America. The criticism is based on several factors.
1. Muslims know that Islam is a political philosophy masquerading as a religion. They know that a Muslim president will fill his cabinet with Islamists, work hard to undercut the Constitution of the United States, use his position to foster the rise of Islam in the USA and around the world, make every effort to destroy the economy of America (because failing economies are easier targets for Islamic take-over), and do all within his power to destroy Christianity.
2. Non-Christian Americans who are ignorant of the fact that Islam is a political movement with religious tentacles, not a religious movement with minor political implications are prone to cry for religious equality.
3. Those who hate Christ and Christianity see the influx of religions as an attack on Christianity. They rejoice thinking that the increase in the number and diversity of religions in America will lessen the impact of Christianity in our culture. Therefore, any President that is not Christian is good according to them.
4. The political left hates America and sees Islam as a welcome change. The politics of Islam are so horrendous the political left cannot bring themselves to admit that Islam is even one-tenth as disgusting as it really is. The live in denial. And, to a large degree they are under demonic influence that makes them both blind and stupid. There is little that can help overcome willful submission to demonic forces. Stupid is just stupid.
5. Some reference Article VI, paragraph 3 of the US Constitution states:
"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support the Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."
From this Article, it is deduced, by some, that a citizen of the United States cannot voice his opinion that an Islamic should not be President. However, this is an absurd argument. This article does not forbid any person from having or voicing an opinion about who would make a good President. Any person who feels that a candidate who supports polygamy, child-marriage, selling girls and women into slavery, the genital mutilation of girls, the taxing, torture and killing of non-Muslims, - a false pledge to upholding the Constitution followed by actions designed to destroy the Constitution, the propagation of Sharia Law (Muslim political and religious laws) to replace the American legal system, the destruction of Christianity in America and filling his Presidential cabinet with Muslims devoted to these ills, has a right and a responsibility to express that opinion.
Plus, as already noted, the primary purpose of Islam has always been and continues to be a political agenda, not a religious agenda. How many times does it take for a person to hear, read or see with their own eyes that Islam is a political movement designed to take over the political power of societies and, then, impose religious doctrine. I am having a hard time believing that the majority of Americans are so stupid they cannot see this reality. Open your eyes. Think, for crying out loud!
Dr. Carson has not subjected Muslims to a religious test, but to a valid political examination. Islamists make terrible American citizens. How can an Islamic make a great American President. Wake up! Stop being an imbecile.
