Ben Carson: President Should Be Sworn In On Bibles, Not Koran

In an interview with The Hill, GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson stood by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States.

He said that whoever takes the White House should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.” In a Sunday morning interview with Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," Carson stated that he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.” He added, “I absolutely would not agree with that."

Carson explained his beliefs by stating “I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country. Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”
