Rick Santorum: Of Course Muslims Can Be President… Unless They’re Devout

Rick Santorum made clear today that he disagreed with Dr. Ben Carson, who said Muslims shouldn’t be President.

Of course Muslims can be President, Santorum said. They just can’t be devout Muslims who believe in the “totality of Islam.” If that’s the case, fuck ’em.

… In the end, I don’t think that’s what [Carson] was saying, because if he was saying that, then I disagree with him because there’s a religious test in the Constitution that says you can’t do that, but what he was saying is, is a devout Muslim who believes in the totality of Islam, which is both a political doctrine and a religious doctrine, which means Sharia Law — can a devout Muslim who believes in Sharia Law, should that person be elected President? Well, the answer is no, they shouldn’t

So Muslims can be President. Unless they’re true Muslims (according to Santorum’s definition), in which case they can’t be. Because True Muslims, unlike the acceptable ones who don’t really care about their faith, hate America.

Thanks, Rick. That clarifies everything.

Can’t wait for the next GOP Debate, when the candidates will debate which of those two camps President Obama belongs to.
