On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” GOP presidential candidate hopeful Dr. Ben Carson answered a question by Chuck Todd, which has started a media frenzy and drawn the attention of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations). Because of Dr. Carson’s response, CAIR demands the nation’s political leaders repudiate the statements and withdrawal of Dr. Carson from the presidential race. CAIR’s National Executive Director, Nihad Awad, accused Dr. Carson of not knowing the Constitution, “which clearly states that ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office’.”
Todd asked Dr. Carson, “Should a president’s faith matter; should your faith matter to voters?”
Here is Dr. Carson’s response:
