Newt Gingrich On The Possibility Of A Muslim President

Newt Gingrinch has upset Muslim groups in the USA with this statement. I don't get why they call him anti-Muslim for what he says here (I do not know if he is or is not - I just do not see it in this statement). I see nothing anti-Muslim about supporting a Muslim-American to run for president as long as he rejects the adoption of Sharia law into the US court system.


  1. I think that people are upset because the question did not address Sharia law, but Newt decided not only to bring it up anyway, but to start his answer with it. His answer should have been that a candidate's religion will have no bearing on whether or not he supports that person.

    If pressed about the Sharia law issue, he should have said that he would not support any candidate, Muslim or otherwise, who would try to institute any religious code of law into American courts.

    His singling out of and attacks on Shaira law were probably what was found to be offensive.

    1. I am impressed newton didn't just respond by saying "we already have a muslim american president " :-)

      I dont think its unreasonable to discuss sharia law when asked such a question. That really is one of the main concerns when discussing the possibility
