We’re sure by now you’ve heard the very troubling things Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said last Sunday on Meet the Press. As distressing and controversial as that was, Carson failed to recant his remarks and instead alluded to fears of Shariah law in the United States. This fear mongering that started on the fringes with legislation in Louisiana and Tennessee, and extended to several other states, has now made it to one of the most watched prime time political news programs. Even more troubling, Carson received a big spike in fundraising presumably in response to his bigoted remarks. We are heartened to see that several prominent lawmakers and politicians have come forward to reject Carson's remarks. Perhaps the best came from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) "I have a problem with any person running for president who would apply a religious test to any religious group inside of America." Further, Graham asked Carson to apologize to American Muslims and to recognize the 3,500 American Muslims serving in the U.S. military. We take Sen. Graham to task when we need to, so you bet we are going to thank him for speaking up against bigotry.
