BILL O'REILLY: Carson believes that the country was founded on Judeo-Christian philosophy, which it was. So if you're a Muslim, in his mind, you don't adhere to that philosophy. You have your own. So he says that's not a good fit for America. That's his opinion. He's entitled to it without being branded a racist or whatever. This is what's wrong with this country. We need vibrant debate and stop with the nonsense. If that's what Carson believes, that's okay with me.

MATT LAUER: And let the voters decide. 

O'REILLY: That's right!
