Carson: Sharia Law Is ‘Not Consistent with the American Constitution’

‘If you accept all the premises, including Sharia, you know, which places women in a subservient position, which places other religions in a subservient position ... these things are not consistent with the American constitution’

STEPHANOPOULOS: "You have said that you do not believe that Islam is consistent with the constitution. What did you mean by that?"
CARSON: "If you accept all the premises, including Sharia, you know, which places women in a subservient position, which places other religions in a subservient position, which you know imposes things like death on homosexuals and people with sexual deviations, et cetera. You know, these things are not consistent with the American constitution. So, if somebody, you know, believes in Islam and they’re willing to reject those portions openly I don’t have a problem with that, but if they’re not willing to reject them, then it is not consistent with what we’re doing here. And you have to do is go back to the holy land foundation trial. And look at the explanatory memorandum that was brought up there that shows what the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood in America is. People need to know this stuff."
STEPHANOPOULOS: "Dr. Carson, thanks very much for your time this morning."
