A quote on something important

I try to avoid posting too much on politics (go ahead and laugh at me…) but this is very important. We cannot let the intellectual gatekeepers run this world and triumph over common sense and basic human decency. They mean well, but if they have their way it’s going to be Ukraine & China & Korea in the 1930s all over again and millions more dead. Yes, they can talk fancy, really fancy, but sometimes we need honesty.

What did Ben Carson say?

When asked if he believes if Sharia Law is consistent with the Constitution, Carson said, “No, I do not.”

Ben Carson was also asked if he would have any objection to a Muslim serving as president. Assuming that a practicing Muslim would submit to Sharia Law, he answered…

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”

The media has totally and intentionally distorted what Dr. Carson said in an effort to drive him out of the race for president. You and I must not let them succeed!

Ben Carson has doubled down on his courageous stand against radical Islam. As he explained it on Fox News Channel

“We don’t put people at the head of our country whose faith might interfere with them carrying out the duties of the Constitution. If you’re a Christian and you’re running for president and you want to make this [country] into a theocracy, I’m not going to support you. I’m not going to advocate you being the president.”

“Now, if someone has a Muslim background, and they’re willing to reject those tenets [of Sharia Law] and to accept the way of life that we have, and clearly will swear to place our Constitution above their religion, then of course they will be considered infidels and heretics, but at least I would then be quite willing to support them.”

That is precisely what he told Chuck Todd of NBC News , but NBC carefully took Carson’s statement out of context and twisted it into a pretzel to make him look like a bigot.

And then, all the other mainstream news media jumped on board, trying to make it look like Ben Carson said something he did not say. And, that he did not understand the Constitution. As if the left has ever cared about the Constitution.

The news media has tried to say that Ben Carson is wrong because the Constitution says that no one shall be denied the office of President because of his religion.

Ben Carson didn’t say that at all. He said he would not “advocate” that a practicing Muslim be elected President of the United States. But, he did say that Sharia Law was inconsistent with the United States Constitution!

Judge for yourself whether Ben Carson was right…

Equal Rights. The Constitution guarantees equal rights for all Americans, but Sharia Law denies equal rights for women or non-Muslims.

Freedom of Religion. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, but Sharia Law doesn’t accept the right of other religions to practice their beliefs.

Freedom of Speech. The Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, but Sharia Law limits freedom of speech and no one can say or write anything negative about the prophet, Mohammed or the Quran.

In fact, according to Sharia Law, anyone criticizing or denying any part of the Quran must be put to death.

There are many more things that Sharia law prohibits that are inconsistent with American practices and traditions including…

  • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
  • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
  • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
  • A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
  • Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
  • A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
  • A woman is prohibited from driving a car or speaking alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
  • The Quran says that Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

The list of things inconsistent with American values and traditions is much, much longer than the short list provided above, yet the ignorant news media intends to use this stand by Dr. Carson to drive him from the race.

— J.P. Sousa on “What did Ben Carson really say?”

To clarify my thoughts on Islam: I (Chubbic) am not saying that current Islam = is only ISIS & Sharia Law, any more than Sixteenth-century Catholicism = is only the Spanish Inquisition. Obviously there is alot more going on. BUT it is a part of it. And you can’t just silence the critics, as if not talking about the tiger will make it go away. The critics have something valid to say, because there IS something wrong. Maybe its uncomfortable, maybe it’s rude. But it must be addressed.

  1. Before the Fort Hood shooting, the not-yet-shooter had a presentation before the shooting, saying how he felt really conflicted between his religious ideals and the American military. Everyone was too sensitive and embarrassed to do anything about it, with tragic results. There is a limit to the number of elephants that fit in the living room.

  2. If folks are going to claim that you are awful for assuming that Islam involves Sharia Law, and for seeing that Sharia law is bad, then why don’t they work on re-defining Islam? I wish they would spend their energy trying to take down Sharia law, rather than just acting like it doesn’t exist and attacking anyone who criticizes it or conflates it with Islam (which it often is connected to).
