Letter: Growing number of Muslims effectively serve our society; don't set limitations

I am responding to Tom Ostrom's Sept. 28 letter in the Post-Bulletin, which supports Republican candidate Dr. Ben Carson's statement that a Muslim should not serve as president of the United States. Two things need to be appreciated in this regard.

First, there is a growing number of Muslims serving effectively and positively in our society. Their numbers will certainly increase.

Second, let's not forget we vote in this democracy, and through the years, we will continue to decide who is best qualified to be our leader.
