Carson has faced a firestorm of controversy since saying in an interview on NBC\u2019s Meet the Press on Sunday morning: \u201cI would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.\u201d Related: Ben Carson's anti-Muslim comments: what have the other candidates said? However, the former neurosurgeon \u2013 currently a leading candidate for the Republican nomination \u2013 insisted on Tuesday that his objection to a Muslim becoming president \u201chas nothing to do with being Muslim\u201d. \u201cAnyone of any religious faith whatsoever, if they place the constitution above their religious beliefs\u201d could serve as president, he said. On Monday night, Carson said in an interview with Fox News that he would be open to a moderate Muslim who denounced radical Islam becoming president. But he also said he stood by his original comments, saying that the US could not elect people \u201cwhose faith might interfere with carrying out the duties of the constitution\u201d. That could equally apply to a Christian, he said. \u201cIf you\u2019re a Christian and you\u2019re running for president and you want to make this into a theocracy, I\u2019m not going to support you,\u201d Carson said. \u201cI\u2019m not going to advocate you being the president.\u201d He added: \u201cNow, if someone has a Muslim background and they\u2019re willing to reject those tenets and to accept the way of life that we have, and clearly will swear to place our constitution above their religion, then, of course, they will be considered infidels and heretics, but at least I would then be quite willing to support them.\u201d Also on Monday, Barry Bennett, Carson\u2019s campaign manager, attempted to differentiate between radical Muslims and those whom he described as practicing \u201cIslam-lite\u201d. Bennett said: \u201cI know there are a lot of other people who practice, I\u2019ll call it Islam-lite. And that\u2019s fine.\u201d But he warned: \u201cYou have to separate yourself from the tenets of the harsher sect in order for him to consider voting for you. That\u2019s what this is all about.\u201d He also falsely claimed Islam called for non-Muslims to be killed. \u201cI don\u2019t think there\u2019s any other religion that says that people of other religions have to be killed,\u201d Bennett said. The verse often used to justify statements such as Bennett\u2019s has been misconstrued to justify the killing of infidels, when in fact it justifies violence only against idolaters who continue to impose hostilities or a threat to Muslims. The intensifying political fallout has proved a distraction for the retired neurosurgeon as he tries to capitalize on recent momentum in the unruly Republican presidential race. But it also highlights a sentiment among voters in both parties who seem to agree with Carson\u2019s reluctance to elect a Muslim to the nation\u2019s highest office. Carson\u2019s campaign reported strong fundraising and more than 100,000 new Facebook friends in the 24 hours after his initial comments on Meet the Press. Bennett told Associated Press on Monday: \u201cWhile the left wing is huffing and puffing over it, Republican primary voters are with us at least 80-20. \u201cPeople in Iowa particularly, are like: \u2018Yeah! We\u2019re not going to vote for a Muslim either\u2019,\u201d Bennett said. \u201cI don\u2019t mind the hubbub. It\u2019s not hurting us, that\u2019s for sure.\u201d Carson, a devout Christian, is running just behind businessman Donald Trump among Republican voters in Iowa, whose caucuses will kick off the state-by-state nominating contests next February. Carson is drawing support among the large bloc of socially conservative evangelicals in the midwestern state. The head of the nation\u2019s largest Muslim advocacy group called on Carson to drop out of the 2016 presidential contest during a Capitol Hill press conference on Monday, declaring him \u201cunfit to lead because his views are in contradiction with the United States constitution\u201d. \u201cNot long ago, some people thought that a Catholic cannot be a president, an African American cannot be a president,\u201d said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic relations. \u201cThey were wrong then, and they are wrong now.\u201d He pointed out that article six of the US constitution states \u201cno religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States\u201d. Some Republicans joined a chorus of Democrats condemning Carson\u2019s statement. The South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that the comment \u201cshows that Dr Carson is not ready to be commander in chief\u201d. The leading Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, addressed the issue on Twitter: \u201cCan a Muslim be president of the United States of America? In a word: Yes. Now let\u2019s move on.\u201d Fourteen years after Islamic extremists executed the deadliest terrorist attack in US history, a suspicious stance resonates with some voters despite the fact that \u2013 as the Democratic senator Harry Reid put it on Monday \u2013 Muslims \u201cteach in our schools, fight in our military and serve in Congress\u201d. America\u2019s Muslim population is growing, according to a survey in May by the Pew Research Center, which found the group represented just under 1% of the US population. A June Gallup poll found that 54% of Republicans would not vote for a well-qualified Muslim nominee from their own party; 39% of independents and 27% of Democrats said the same.
