From the Washington Post, citing an interview presidential hopeful Ben Carson (R) had on Meet the Press on NBC:

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” he said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Carson said earlier in the discussion that a president’s faith should not matter so long as its “within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem.”

When host Chuck Todd pressed Carson on whether he believes “Islam is consistent with the Constitution,” Carson said, “No, I don’t, I do not.”

How do you feel about Ben Carson’s claim? Personally, I think a person could be a Muslim and be a wonderful president, assuming they support liberty. This may mean the individual hold a certain view of traditional Islamic beliefs, however.
