"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."
I sincerely hope Ben Carson is not as naive as this quote makes him out to be. He appears in his remarks to be unaware that we are currently – and have been for the last seven years – saddled with the curse of a Muslim President.
Dr. Carson notes that anyone who was a Muslim and rejects Islam "will be considered infidels and heretics." What he may not realize is that the penalty for apostasy under Sharia is death. Barack Hussein Obama was born and raised a Muslim. If he is now a Christian, as his spokesmen and his sycophantic media contend, there would be a fatwah out for his death.
Why isn't there?
Taqiyya is an accepted tenet of Islam that says a believer may pretend to be an apostate if that pretense furthers the cause of world domination by Islam. Barack Obama has on numerous occasions advertised to the Muslim world that he is practicing taqiyya. For example, during the 2012 Presidential campaign on National TV, Obama said, "We've been in every State now but two. Fifty seven, I think – one to go."
While you infidels scratched your heads at the President's seeming incoherence, every Muslim in the world knew exactly what Obama was saying. He was referring to the 57 states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and that "one to go" was Palestine.
Another strong indication that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim practicing taqiyya is the fact that he removes his watch and ring during the Holy month of Ramadan, observing the Muslim prohibition against the wearing of jewelry during Ramadan. How many Christians do you know who do that?
But Barack Husein Obama has fulfilled your requirement, Ben, of "swear[ing] to place our Constitution above [his] religion." The problem is that that oath, in the eyes of Barack Husein Obama, is only one of the many lies necessary to his taqiyya. And far from being an onerous act of perjury, successfully lying to an enemy (i.e. any non-Muslim) of Islam is, under the Muslim principal of hudaybiyyah, an exemplary accomplishment for a Muslim.
Come on, Ben. 'You want to be President? Stand up on your hind legs and tell us what no other candidate has the guts to say: Barack Husein Obama is a Muslim!
