Q & A: Herman Cain on Faith, Calling, and Presidential Aspirations

Interview by Trevor Persaud

CT talks with the pizza magnate about his potential candidacy, cancer, and views of Islam.

I think Cain is a straight-shooter with a good personal story and ideas. However, I think he is wrong to say Muslims in America shouldn’t try to convert the rest of us because we are a Judeo-Christian nation. Isn’t that what other leaders of majority religions in other countries say when Christians want to share the gospel with them? Religious freedom means the right to convert, whether the rest of us like it or not. It’s not religious freedom if you can’t ask others to believe what you do.
