Reverend Franklin Graham refuses to vote for a Muslim candidate running for Presidential elections next year.
According to media reports, Reverend Franklin Graham while talking to various media channels said that he will not vote for a Muslim or an atheist to be as the President of the United States. “I understand what Ben Carson was saying; he said adding, “Because the teaching of Islam goes against our Constitution.”
Franklin Graham further stated that “I absolutely would not agree with that.” He further clarified that he would by no means vote for a Muslim to hold the Presidential office; he said he could not figure out how he could. Nonetheless, Reverend Franklin Graham made clear that it is possible that he may vote for a Jew instead. When he was asked whether he could see himself voting for a Jewish person, Reverend Graham replied, “of course.”
The issue of voting for a Muslim for the Presidential election is currently in discussion in the U.S. Previously, Republican Ben Carson, came into much spotlight when he said he did not think Islam was consistent with the American constitution. Following Ben Carson’s statements, Reverend Franklin was asked to comment about Ben Carson’s comments. He disregarded the comments of Ben Carson.
Previusly Republican Presidential candidate Benjamin Solomon Carson is a retired brain surgeon who oftentimes keeps referring to his own deep rooted Christian faith. Ben Carson had said “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” he said. “I guess it depends on what that faith is. If it s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the constitution, no problem,” he said.
