That unconstitutional Constitution

by digby

The wingnuts love the Constitution except when it has some provision they feel isn't constitutional --- like say, that thing about having no religious test for office holders:

Who DO You Stand With: Ben Carson or the Washington Post?

If you believe that Sharia Law is consistent with the United States Constitution, then you ought to stop reading this e-mail right now.
If, however, you believe that Ben Carson is right, that anyone who submits to Sharia Law should not be elected President of the United States, then I urge you to stand with Dr. Ben Carson today.

SIGN THE OPEN LETTER OF SUPPORT TO BEN CARSON

Dr. Ben Carson is getting slammed across the nation by liberal newspapers like The Washington Post and TV hosts for simply telling the truth.
What did Ben Carson say?
When asked if he believes if Sharia Law is consistent with the Constitution, Carson said, “No, I do not.”
Ben Carson was also asked if he would have any objection to a Muslim serving as president. Assuming that a practicing Muslim would submit to Sharia Law, he answered...
“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”
The media has totally and intentionally distorted what Dr. Carson said in an effort to drive him out of the race for president. You and I must not let them succeed!
Ben Carson has doubled down on his courageous stand against radical Islam. As he explained it on Fox News Channel on Monday night...
"We don't put people at the head of our country whose faith might interfere with them carrying out the duties of the Constitution. If you're a Christian and you're running for president and you want to make this [country] into a theocracy, I'm not going to support you. I'm not going to advocate you being the president."
"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."
That is precisely what he told Chuck Todd of NBC News, but NBC carefully took Carson’s statement out of context and twisted it into a pretzel to make him look like a bigot.
And then, all the other mainstream news media jumped on board, trying to make it look like Ben Carson said something he did not say. And, that he did not understand the Constitution. As if the left has ever cared about the Constitution.
So, are you going to let the lies and distortions of the news media stand, or will you stand with Ben Carson?
He needs your encouragement and support now!
The news media has tried to say that Ben Carson is wrong because the Constitution says that no one shall be denied the office of President because of his religion.
Ben Carson didn’t say that at all. He said he would not“advocate” that a practicing Muslim be elected President of the United States. But, he did say that Sharia Law was inconsistent with the United States Constitution!
Judge for yourself whether Ben Carson was right...
Equal Rights. The Constitution guarantees equal rights for all Americans, but Sharia Law denies equal rights for women or non-Muslims.
Freedom of Religion. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, but Sharia Law does accept the right of other religions to practice their beliefs.
Freedom of Speech. The Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, but Sharia Law limits freedom of speech and no one can say or write anything negative about the prophet, Mohammed or the Quran.
In fact, according to Sharia Law, anyone criticizing or denying any part of the Quran must be put to death.
There are many more things that Sharia law prohibits that are inconsistent with American practices and traditions including...
  • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
  • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
  • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
  • A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
  • Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
  • A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
  • A woman is prohibited from driving a car or speaking alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
  • The Quran says that Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
The list of things inconsistent with American values and traditions is much, much longer than the short list provided above, yet the ignorant news media intends to use this stand by Dr. Carson to drive him from the race.
Shallow candidates like South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham are already attacking Ben Carson.
Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that is an unindicted co-conspirator due to their shadowy ties with radical Islam, is calling on Carson to "withdraw from the presidential race because he is unfit to lead, because his views are inconsistent with the United States Constitution."
Unbelievable!
But, make no mistake about it, Ben Carson is being attacked on all sides.
Tell him that you are with him. Tell him to stand firm. Tell him that he is right.
Won’t you please do that today?
Ben Carson needs your encouragement now.
Please put your name on the Open Letter to Ben Carson.
And, please make a contribution to help Ben Carson be elected as the next President of the United States.
Thank you, and may God bless America and Ben Carson.

Sincerely,
John Philip Sousa IV
National Chairman

Honestly, I don't know how their brains don't explode over something like this:

Judge for yourself whether Ben Carson was right...

Equal Rights. The Constitution guarantees equal rights for all Americans, but Sharia Law denies equal rights for women or non-Muslims.

Freedom of Religion. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, but Sharia Law does accept the right of other religions to practice their beliefs.

Freedom of Speech. The Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, but Sharia Law limits freedom of speech and no one can say or write anything negative about the prophet, Mohammed or the Quran.
