This morning on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd was exorcised no small amount that Dr. Ben Carson said that a Muslim should not be President of the United States. Apparently Chuck has never studied Islam, the Quran or American history. So, in order to help Chuck better assess Dr. Carson’s correct inclinations, here are just five reasons no Muslim should ever be our President.
1. We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are NOT created equal.
Our entire governmental system is based on the presupposition that “all men are created equal”. A Muslim President would have to deny this. The Quran (98:6) says that people who do not believe in Islam are less important than bugs. The exact wording is that “non-believers are the worst of all creatures”. Non-believers are, of course, the 300 million of us who live in the United States that are not Muslim. In order for a Muslim President to enforce the laws of the United States which protect non-Muslims, he would have to commit the Islamic sin of shirk. The funny thing about shirk is that, according to Islam, it is a capital offense. Therefore, a Muslim President of the U.S. who tried to uphold laws based on our Christian heritage would be committing suicide.
2. A Muslim President would unleash a REAL war on women.
The Quran (4:34) condones wife beating. And the Quran, to a Muslim, is the eternal, perfect, unimpeachable word of Allah. The Quran cannot be questioned without committing shirk which, as we noted above, is a capital offense. You want to see a war on women? Put a man in charge who has authority directly from Allah to beat his wife!
3. Disagree with Islam? You get your hands and feet cut off.
Want tolerance in religion? The Quran (5:33) says that those who “create mischief in the land” (read, disagree with Islam) …they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned.
4. Goodbye Gay Pride
The Quran says that Muhammad was an “excellent example” (even though Muhammad tried to commit suicide several times, was deceived by Satan and stole his son’s wife) for anybody who wants to follow Islam – as a Muslim President would. And Muhammad cursed gays and cross dressers. The secondary authority in Islam is the collected writing of Islamic scholars known as the hadith. So Sahih Bukhari (7:72:774) says gays have to be kicked out of the house. Abu Dawud says that those who commit sodomy are to be killed (38:4447,4448). Ibn Majah says “kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.”
Under a Muslim President, life would not be good for gays.
5. Science will Die
The Quran teaches that the sun sets in a mud puddle (18:86) . It teaches that human embryos go through a stage where they are a blood clot (23:14). It teaches that human sperm is created between a man’s ribs and his spine (86:6-7). Since the Quran is “perfect” your kids will be encouraged to learn the “perfect science”.
