Look for a lot of rending of liberal clothing today because Doctor Ben Carson told the truth: Islam is not compatible with the American way of life.
Asked on "Meet the Press" if a Muslim should be president, Doctor Carson said, "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that."
He said a president's religion matters: "If it's inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter."
He is correct. The Muslim lifestyle is incompatible with the Constitution and the entire Western experience. Sharia law is the opposite of Western law. "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" are not mere slogans; they are game plans. We should not allow droves of people who want to kill us into our country.
Guess what else is incompatible with the American existence? Nazism, fascism, and communism. We fought them off as well.
I am not saying that we should ban all Muslims or ban the Islamic faith. But we should make sure that people who come here respect our rights, our lifestyle, and our heritage. The Amish don't try to take away our electricity. If you come to America for religious freedom, fine, but you must respect the religions of others. If not, who needs you?
The story is here.
