Via Fox News:

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson suggested Sunday that a Muslim should not be president, extending the new and unexpected religion debate on the 2016 campaign trail.

 

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson, a Christian and retired neurosurgeon, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I absolutely would not agree with that.”

 

Carson, a top-tier 2016 candidate and popular among the GOP’s evangelical wing, made the statement after fellow Republican candidate Donald Trump was addressed by a man during a rally Thursday in New Hampshire who said President Obama is a Muslim.

 

“We have a problem in this country,” the unidentified man said. “It’s called Muslim. … You know our current president is one.”

 

Obama says he is a Christian. But Trump has declined to address the issue, saying he is not “morally obligated” to set straight the record.

 

Carson also said Sunday that a president’s religious faith shouldn’t be “inconsistent with the values of America.”

 

“But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem,” he continued.
