Muslim's have their religious beliefs, and they are entitled to them; however, America is the place where Slavery was abolished, where Women were given the right to Vote and right to Educate and Work, where religious liberty is our first principle. These idea's are incompatible to the Islamic Faith and Culture and to say a potential President could ignore his religious faith is rather disingenuous.
    ok, how about this?

    I have to agree with you....and it has nothing to do with racism or anything to do with non radical Muslims......but I would wonder....is he or she hiding something that we have no idea about, could he she be a homegrown terrorist????....the questions of wondering would make me not vote for him/her...I feel this way because of all the unsettling things going on......

    However if in years to come when their is peace in the Middle East then I have no doubt my feelings about this would change.

    I voted no because I just couldn't bear the thought of seeing the First Lady in a burka. I just have trust issues when it comes to people that I can't actually see.

    A Perfect example of how Muslim Values and American Values are incompatible. Modern Day America respects the Woman and as much as any Nation on Earth, treats Her as an Equal, and in some cases.... *SUPERIOR* (I believe the Greatest Job in America is raising children and almost everyone I know gives that credit to Mom.)

    my question is, if you felt the person was qualified by your standards to be president and he was a Muslim would you vote for him, and if not why?

    my answer is OF COURSE YES, because if I thought he was qualified his religion doesn't matter.


    I like mashed potatoes, and I'd rather handle a live cobra than answer this question.


    Okay... TBH my real answer is "probably not". It would depend somewhat on what I thought of whoever he was running against.


    It would worry me. I know not all Muslims are radicalized... but a good many are. I know not all Muslims hate Israel... but lots do. I know not all Muslims want to place the world under Sharia.... but many do.

    It's a worry that quite frankly I could do without, if the other guy seemed just as good a choice and wasn't Muslim.


    I'm sorry if that sounds prejudiced, but I'm being honest here. The past 20 years just doesn't inspire confidence in this...

    HUGE difference between you and idiot bigots
    the door is open for you, its possible though unlikely and the bolded above is what makes it different, there are people that deny that fact and deem ALL musilms evil.

    But whats funny is its also a fact that not all Christian, Catholics etc want to have the laws and rule of this country follow their religion but a good many of them do.

    and people ignore that fact and for some reason only focus on muslims and deem them ALL evil.

    you clearly didnt do that so your good, the Cobra struck but only got air
