Dear Dr. Ben - I'm So Confused

So here's the thing: under fire for his No Muslim President comments Dr Ben doubled his objection in an ABC News interview today, saying,  
Carson concluded his remarks by reiterating his stance on who should be allowed to hold the nation’s highest office.
“Anyone who is running for president should embrace the Constitution and should place it above their personal beliefs," he remarked. "Anyone who can't do that should not be running for the presidency."
So if you'd assume his Subordinate-Your-Religion-to-The-Constitution position applies to all elected office, you'd be disappointed. When asked about Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis' refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Dr Ben was plain enough:
"But this is a very basic right. This is a Judeo-Christian nation in the sense that a lot of our values and principles are based on our Judeo-Christian faith. “
...“And Congress now has a responsibility to step up to the plate and enact legislation that will protect the First Amendment rights of all Americans. That’s the reason that we have divided government. When one branch does something that tilts the balance, the other branches need to pitch in and correct the situation. This is a serious problem.” 

It's plain: Muslims should leave their religion at home but Christians are entitled to special treatment.
