At an event earlier this month, Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey questioned whether Islam was a religion or a cult, drawing criticism from Muslim leaders. What do you think?

  • “There's no such thing as a stupid question, unless you're a gubernatorial candidate and you ask whether Islam is a cult." ”

  • “He must have chosen that time to ask because the crowd contained so many scholars of Islam." ”

  • “What an absolutely horrible thing to say out loud.”
