A prominent pastor says presidential candidate Ben Carson was right when he voiced his reluctance to accept a Muslim as president of the United States.

 

“To say that a candidate’s faith doesn’t make any difference is absolutely ridiculous,” Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, says of the controversy over Carson’s remarks.

Carson, a Republican candidate for president, was asked Sunday on Meet the Press if he would vote for a presidential candidate who is Muslim.

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

 

Jeffress tells OneNewsNow that Christian voters should use a “religious litmus story” to help them pick a candidate for public office.

“I mean, our faith gives us our worldview,” the pastor explains. “It’s the essence of who we are.”

Sharia law is “incompatible” with “American freedom,” says Sandy Rios, who hosts an early-morning talk show on American Family Radio.

“Islam is a political system,” she tells OneNewsNow, “and that’s why I agree with Dr. Carson.”

Carson later told The Hill that the president of the United States should be sworn in “on a stack of Bibles,” not a Koran. Sharia law is not compatible with the Constitution, he further explained.
