Carson, a devout Seventh-day Adventist whose line of work, prior to seeking the White House, was as a neurosurgeon, paused a bit and then said: “That is not a simple question,” the NBC video showed.

He then said he couldn’t really answer without having a more specific scenario to address

“I think probably what you have to do is ask a specific question about a specific passage of the Bible and a specific portion of the Constitution,” he said. “I don’t think you can answer that question other than out of very specific context.”
