Slam Islam
I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. A newly released ABC News / Beliefnet poll shows that "after starting out tolerant, public opinion has turned against Islam." The "percentage of Americans having an unfavorable view of Islam has jumped from 24% in January 2002 to 33% now." More surprising (for me, at least) is that "evangelical white Protestants are 22 points more likely than mainstream white Protestants to express an unfavorable opinion of Islam." While you're perusing the results of this poll on Beliefnet, you might also want to test your knowledge of Islam. (I got 13 out of 18 correct, by the way. How did you do?)
