I don’t know why there is a such a fuss about Ben Carson’s statement that a Muslim should never be president of the United States. The United States has been a Christian country since its inception.
Before we start thinking about why we would want a non-Christian president, let’s consider asking our close ally Saudi Arabia or the business friendly Dubai or the westernized Jordan to consider having a Christian leader of their country. We allow all religions to live in peace in our country.
A Judeo-Christian president follows the laws, ethics and teachings of our country and is loyal to the Constitution and people. If he does his job correctly, he subordinates his religious beliefs to what is right and correct for everyone in the United States, not just a select clique.
