    We have far more people overall, of course, and so the percentages are different. Our Muslim population is more assimilated, less radical and better educated as a whole as well.

    Yes. I'd also vote for a qualified Christian, a qualified Jew, a qualified Hindu, a qualified Buddhist, a qualified Shintoist, a qualified Zoroastrian, a qualified Daoist, a qualified Confucianist, a qualified Mormon, a qualified Rastafarian, a qualified atheist, a qualified agnostic, a qualified pantheist, and a qualified pagan. As long as it doesn't influence their policy, I really couldn't care less.

    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 the person acted like most American politicians, where their religious beliefs and political beliefs were one, absolutely not. If they could separate their religion from their work, yes.

    exactly!


    it will have SOME influence but in general the only was a politician would be qualified is if they are able to mostly separate the two.
    This is why I always wondered about Paul Ryans statement but he wasnt clear on it. He said he didnt think it was possible to separate them but he didnt go into detail. Im sure he meant he didnt think it was possible for total separation but he was unclear.

    I agree, its the ONLY way to be a good and qualified candidate.

    Question though do you really think most politicians are that way? I certainly do not.

    Absolutely. Why is gay marriage illegal? Stem cell research funding banned? Marijuana illegal? Religion. Religion. Religion.

    well thats not the same though. Yes I feel people wrongly using religion majorly impacts those things BUT I dont think thats because of" politicians personal views" and "inability to separate the two" themselves its because the cater to the loudest and squeakiest wheels in their base and a lot of time thats the extremists.

    it most areas of the country and especially for president i think any candidate that would show a huge inability to separate the two would lose, they would certainly never get my vote because it would be clear they have no understanding of america.

    It's exactly the same. Politicians use the word god to justify their actions far, far too often. I want nothing of it.
