    Herman Cain is asked whether he would be willing to appoint a Muslim as a Cabinet officer or judge.

    “No. I will not,” he said. “And here’s why: There’s this creeping attempt — there’s this attempt to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.” According to Cain, many American Muslims “are trying to force their Sharia law onto the rest of us.”

    That’s just stupid. As in not very bright. By comparison, the Sharia conspiracy crowd makes the birthers look downright sane and reasonable. It will be interesting to see who, if anyone, among the GOP mainstream steps up to repudiate such nonsense. After all, the Constitution explicitly rules out such nonsense, stating point blank that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

    I guess Herman Cain doesn’t believe in the Constitution.

    Isn't that illegal to discriminate based on religion?

    I am not sure that the religious right will realize what a door they are opening.

    I like Cain. And, if he's pissed you off... I like him even more.

    Well, that ends any doubt about whether or not this guy can be accurately labeled a crackpot.

    And a bigot.

    Ironically it proves a point the Right loves to assert on a regular basis...

    ...that black people can be bigots too!

    A candidate expressing that he would practice religious discrimination when filling out his administration and making judicial appointments makes you like him more because it angers someone you dislike/disagree with :cuckoo:

    Is it any different than Obama appointing Holder who continues to speak about his people, clearly he was appointed because of race. This is old news wake up and take a look.
