The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and Republican Herman Cain is apologizing to Muslim leaders for his remarks about Islam while campaigning for the presidential nomination.
Last Wednesday, Cain met with four Muslim leaders in Sterling, Va. In a statement, he was “truly sorry” for comments that may have “betrayed” his commitment to the Constitution and the religious freedom it guarantees.
Cain, also acknowledged that Muslims, “like all Americans,” have the right to practice freely their faith and that most Muslim Americans are peaceful and patriotic.
Cain has said communities have a right to ban Islamic mosques because Muslims are trying to inject sharia law into the U.S. And also said he would not want a Muslim bent on killing Americans in his administration.
