Ben Carson's Comments Stir Anger Among Muslims
by Alan Rappeport
Emotions in the Muslim community remained roiled on Monday by Ben Carson's assertion that followers of Islam are not fit to serve as president of the United States.
Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, has been under fire for comments he made Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," when he said that Islam was not consistent with the Constitution.
"I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation," Mr. Carson said when asked about the relevance of a president's faith. "I absolutely would not agree with that."
