50,000 Americans Sign Letter Supporting Dr. Ben Carson’s Stand Against Sharia Law

MERRIFIELD, Va. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Nearly 50,000 Americans have signed on to an open letter urging Dr. Ben Carson to stand firm in his position that Sharia Law is not consistent with the U.S. Constitution.  The 2016 Committee, a political action committee raising awareness and support for Carson’s campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, is circulating the open letter.

“The news media may have reacted with typical politically correct outrage at Dr. Carson’s bold stand against Sharia law, but the American people stand with him,” said John Phillip Sousa IV, chairman of The 2016 Committee. “Nearly 50,000 individuals have signed on to The 2016 Committee’s open letter since we began circulating it 10 days ago, because they know how important it is to have a leader who will say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done to protect American freedoms.”

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” this month, Carson said he would “have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam” becoming president. “If they are not willing to reject Sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran, if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would” have a problem with it.

The open letter states:

Dear Dr. Carson,

I am appalled by the ignorance of the news media.  If Sharia law ruled the land, there would be no freedom of speech, no free news media.

Women would be second class citizens.  They would not even be allowed to drive a car.

Sharia law is completely inconsistent with the United States Constitution.  Islam is a theocracy ruled by Sharia law.

There would be no freedom of speech, no freedom of the press, no freedom of religion, and the right to vote would be meaningless.

Cutting off someone’s hand for theft is barbaric.

Killing someone for converting to a religion other than Islam is not freedom.

In fact, no one who lives in an Islamic state is free.

I stand behind you.

I agree with you.

The vast majority of Americans agree with you.

Please stand firm.  Don’t give in one inch.

    Go to the roof of the problem…ban Islam….I is quite clear from the Quran that sharia law must be applied if you are Muslim ..Muslims do not value human life…ban Islam from the west before the world goes dark..The saying at the start of WW.2 was ..the lights are going out all over Europe …and I am afraid that.. that saying rings true today……Ban Islam..
