Both Donald Trump and Ben Carson have spoken out against sharia in the USA
, but it's the latter's statements that draw the most interest:
“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson said on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Islam, Carson explained, is “inconsistent with the values of America” and the U.S. Constitution.
Polling data indicates that Carson’s point is not without merit. According to the Pew Research Center, a majority of Muslims throughout South Asia, sub-Saharan African, the Middle East and North Africa favor “making Sharia the official law of the land.” Earlier this year, filmmaker Ami Horowitz interviewed Muslim residents of the Cedar Riverside section of Minneapolis, many of whom said that they would prefer to live under Sharia law.
One boy who was interviewed explained that he would rather live under Sharia law because it would promote safer communities: “Sharia law, it says that if you steal something, they cut off your hand,” the boy explained. “So, basically, [people] can leave their doors open. Nobody’s going to steal anything because Sharia is so tight.”
By definition, Sharia law contradicts the Constitution, which guarantees freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the separation of church and state.
Indeed. And look at how, even in America, there's Islamists out there with no shame about justifying sharia. Predictably, CAIR's attacking him (and even Lindsey Graham
, gallingly enough), but Frank Gaffney's come to Carson's defense
. I'm proud of Carson for laying the facts bare, and not caving in to PC.
