Over the past few weeks, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been outspoken about the role of Muslims in the federal government, particularly how they would fit in his administration, but not without taking some sort of loyalty oath.

On MSNBC on Wednesday, Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, a Muslim, responded to Cain’s statements on Islam. According to Ellison, what Cain alleges about a risk of Muslims in his cabinet is true for any religious group.
