A New Poll Shows American Muslims Are Less Homophobic Than White Evangelical Christians

Here are some facts for the conservatives to ignore or note be able to understand
http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/08/a-new-poll-shows-american-muslims-are-less-homophobic-than-white-evangelical-christians/

But what’s perhaps more noteworthy, particularly for Trump’s opponents, is Pew’s finding about Muslim Americans’ attitudes toward the LGBT community. Statistically, they’ve become much more accepting of LGBT people: 52 percent of Muslim Americans now agree that homosexuality should be accepted by society—up from just 27 percent in 2007. And while they are not the most accepting group polled, their views have shifted toward being gay-friendly by a greater margin than any other group in the survey. White evangelical Christians remain the least accepting; the group’s views were comparable to those of Muslim Americans in 2007, with 23 percent of white evangelical Christians saying homosexuality should be accepted by society. Today only 34 percent say the same. It’s also worth highlighting that about 80 percent of white evangelicals who voted backed Trump, according to exit polls.

1. White Evangelical Christians don't abide by taqiyya, it's not part of the bible.

https://www.google.com/search?q=taqiyya


Taqiyya has also been politically legitimised, particularly among Twelver Shias, in order to maintain unity among Muslims and fraternity among the Shia clerics. Yarden Mariuma writes: "Taqiyya is an Islamic juridical term whose shifting meaning relates to when a Muslim is allowed, under Sharia law, to lie.

So I guess there's that, huh?
What more bullshitery would you like for me to sort out for you?

It's more fun that way.

12. Neither do American Muslims

My youngest daughter's best friend is a hijab wearing Muslim who is now in law school. When Jewish and Muslim young people get together, they compare places to eat because Halah and Kosher are essentially the same set of dietary laws.

3. This is bs. Most Muslim countries where men can't see or touch a woman until marriage

Man boy sex is common practice. Ask the Afghans, they love their Bacha Bazi boys.

10. American Muslims are less homophobic than white Evangelical Christians, study finds

This study shows that American Muslims are more advanced and forgiving than white christians http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/08/american-muslims-are-less-homophobic-than-white-evangelical-christians-study-finds-6837930/

Pew found 52 per cent of American Muslims are welcoming homosexuality compared to 34 percent of Evangelicals.

Acceptance has grown among the Muslim community over the past decade. Back in 2007, only 27 percent were comfortable with homosexuality.

However, the general American public as a whole is more accepting than US Muslims. But the percent isn’t as high as you’d think, at 63.

A Pew spokesperson said: ‘While Muslims remain somewhat more conservative than the general public on views toward homosexuality, they are more ideologically liberal than US adults overall when it comes to immigration and the size of government.

‘About eight-in-ten US Muslims believe that immigrants strengthen the country with their hard work and talent (79 percent), which is perhaps not surprising, given that most Muslims are themselves immigrants. And two-thirds of Muslim Americans (67 percent) say they prefer a larger government that provides more services over a smaller government that provides fewer services.’

15. also, the Evangelicals who are here are endogenous; Muslims are mostly exogenous and here

because of immigration and "refugees". You can't easily stop endogenous things as you can exogenous.
