    Trump knocks Carson's religion

    "Over the weekend, Trump also veered into treacherous political territory – and may have offended the state’s politically active evangelical Christians -- by singling out Carson’s Seventh-day Adventist faith and suggesting that it somehow puts his chief rival on the religious fringes when contrasted with Trump’s more “middle of the road” Presbyterian faith. “I’m Presbyterian,” Trump said on Saturday in Jacksonville. “Boy, that’s down the middle of the road, folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist I don’t know about. I just don’t know about it.”

    "Carson angrily demanded an apology. Questioned by George Stephanopoulos of ABC News’ This Week on why he even brought up the subject, Trump sputtered, “I just don’t know about that particular religion.”

    “I would never say bad about any religion,” Trump said. “I said, ‘I don’t know about it.’ That’s not an insult.”

    If he won't say bad things about Islam, then his days as the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination are numbered. Saying bad things about other people and/or organizations is Trump's only trick as a politician. His supporters quite simply won't stand for him not saying bad things.

    Well, all one has to do is look at some of the things Ben has said to know they're a bit kooky.

    Remember, he didn't put them down really - he just said he didn't know about it.

    *Classic Trumpism ;-)
