Bobby Jindal details criteria for Muslim President candidate

In the wake of the “gotcha question” against Ben Carson and not supporting a Muslim President, fellow GOP presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is attacking the media for “absurd hypothetical” questions to Republican presidential candidates about whether they could ever support a Muslim for president.

“This is a dumb game that the press is playing,” Jindal said in a Monday statement distributed to reporters. “It is an absurd hypothetical question.”

Jindal then says he will “indulge the media for a moment and play their gotcha game,” Jindal went on to say: “If you can find me a Muslim candidate who is a Republican, who will fight hard to protect religious liberty, who will respect the Judeo-Christian heritage of America, who will be committed to destroying ISIS and radical Islam, who will condemn cultures that treat women as second class citizens and who will place their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution, then yes, I will be happy to consider voting for him or her.”

Check out the full Monday statement.

 

“If you can’t,” Jindal said, “I’ll settle for voting for a Christian governor from Louisiana.”

Carson said: “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I absolutely would not agree with that.”

“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.”

When asked if he thought Islam is consistent with the Constitution, Carson said, “No, I don’t, I do not.”
