    If you felt the person was qulified would you vote for Muslim president?

    I know there is a similar poll here but I didnt like the silly twist about adding "if he came out the day before the election" in there

    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.

    If were qualified, Muslim, and had no history of radicalism then yes.

    And I'd say the same for any religion or ideology. I wouldn't vote for a "Libertarian" candidate who had an historic pattern of anarchist action. I wouldn't vote for a Christian candidate who had an historic pattern of demanding violent treatment of homosexuals. I wouldn't vote for a "Progressive" candidate who had an historic pattern of encouraging violent revolution against the "rich". And I wouldn't vote for a Muslim candidate who had an historic pattern of encouraging violence against "infidels", supporting jihadist movements, or condemning western behavior.

    But any rational adoption of ideological/religious dogma is a non issue for me.

    exactly

    anybody that qualified could get a vote, religion isnt a factor and if it is then they arent qualified.

    Any person intelligent enough to be able to separate between their religion/personal opinions vs how they lead can easily qualify for the job. Of course there would be some influence but its minor.

    To clarify my vote:

    I said no because at this time, with all the conflict in the middle east, it could impair his judgement of making the better choices for this nation. food for thought, not saying i'm right or wrong.

    Only if the non-Muslim opponent was totally unqualified.

    how?
    if he is qualified thats a nonissue because he wouldnt care.

    things like this could be true of any president, for any reason.

    are you suggesting that if two people were equally qualified you would disqualify the Muslim one simply based on religion?

    You have to be in-depth. He could be 100% qualified but if he is a full on Muslim then he would protect the injury of any Muslim that he could prevent. terrorist or not. I say this for this religion because the Muslim religion is the one religion that claims the death of others are good except those who follow Allah. Muslim religion believes (majority) that the death of others is the gateway to heaven.

    I'm just being realistic. My apologies.

    nope just your opinion of the religion

    many muslims would not do that and again if he would choose to violate the constitution etc etc then he is not qualified.
