Why is what Herman Cain said considered controversial?

Herman Cain May Sneak Up On 2012 GOP Primary Field If He Doesn't Trip Himself Up First

Huffington-Puffington Post/AOL News Service....

They say what Herman Cain said is a blunder.  Listen to what he said and you tell me if it's a blunder:

He was asked Saturday if he would feel comfortable appointing a Muslim to his Cabinet or to a federal judgeship.

"I will not," he said. "And here's why. There is this creeping attempt, this attempt, to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government," Cain said. "It does not belong in our government. This is what happened to Europe. And little by little, to try to be politically correct, they made this little change. They made this little change. And now they've got a social problem that they don't know what to do with hardly."

Now, if he lived in a world where every time a radical Muslim suicide bomber blow herself up at bus station/train station/open air market/night club, "moderate" Muslims would publicly excoriate the radicals as extremists, then it might be a little "un-PC".  But, as of right now there are very few publicly "moderate" Muslim's and those who do exist are not very forceful.  I assume they are afraid, after witnessing how a Salman Rushdie or a Theo Van Gogh gets treated in the peaceful religion of Islam.

The bottom line is. "Is what Herman Cain said true or false?"  Is say it's true and he ought to be held to that standard - none other.
