Carly Fiorina said she would be “fine” with a sharia muslim serving as President of the United States.
“I think it’s a problem with all kinds of cultures, and certainly, it has been a culture with some Muslims, but I also think that right now, honestly, Sean, if I may say, because of Donald Trump’s comments, we’re talking about all of the wrong things. What we need to be talking about right now, is what are the practical steps that can be taken to protect the homeland right now?
“Well, certainly we know that Sharia Law is counter to our Constitution and way of life. On the other hand, it’s true that people in many parts of the world, who are not Muslim also believe in very objectionable things. In China, for example, so many babies are aborted or left to die through exposure simply because they’re female. So, does that mean we have to worry about every Chinese who wants to become an American citizen?”
Jimmy Fallon: “Ben Carson is in a lot trouble now because he’s saying he would not advocate a Muslim being president,” he said.
“Well, I think that’s wrong,” Fiorina responded.
“You know, it says in our Constitution that religion cannot be a test for office,” she continued. “It is also true that this country was founded on the principle that we judge each individual and that anyone of any faith is welcome here.”
As Fiorina and fellow candidate Sen. Ted Cruz have pointed out, Article VI of the Constitution states: “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States".
Klevius: Sharia islam isn't a religion in any sense of the Constitution. And islam without BASIC Human Rights violating sharia isn't islam. Nor are there any real muslims who abandon sharia.
