    Tennessee GOP Candidate Questions Whether Islam Is a Religion
    Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey is coming under criticism for questioning whether Islam is a religion and suggesting the Constitution’s protection of freedom of religion should not apply to Muslims. Ramsey made the comments while campaigning for the state’s Republican gubernatorial primary race.

    Ron Ramsey: "Now, you know, I’m all about freedom of religion. I value the First Amendment as much as I value the Second Amendment as much as I value the Tenth Amendment and on and on and on. But then you cross the line when they try to start bringing sharia law here to the States, into the United States. We’re already in law, and we live under our Constitution, and they live under our Constitution...Now, you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, way of life or cult, whatever you want to call it. But certainly we do protect our religions, but at the same time this is something we are going to have to face."
