Majority of Democrats believe Islam is “as violent as Christianity” according to new poll

StaffRebel Columnist

A new CBS poll has found that a majority of Democrats find Islam to be as violent as other religions including Christianity and Judaism.

The question was worded as follows: “Generally speaking, do you think the Islamic religion encourages violence more than other religions around the world, less than other religions around the world, or about the same as other religions around the world?”

66% of democrats said Islam was as violent as other religions and only 14% claim it was more violent. 9% of democrats even said Islam was LESS violent.

Meanwhile 63 percent of Republicans said Islam is more violent.

Where do you stand? Is Islam more violent than other religions? Let us know in the comments.

George Dyer said, “With that notion in mind, I’m suggesting that it’s people who are violent – not religion.”

Ahhh, yes. I think I need to improve my comprehension skills. Sorry for the misunderstanding. It happens with me a fair amount. ;o)

When reading the Koran
it becomes clear
that things are against our own laws:
there is a clear command to kill those who don’t convert to the Muslim religion, and men are to beat (!) women if they don’t obey and inherit much less (read for yourself in women chapter) An oath is not binding, is adjustable, can be cancelled if need be.
Historically Mohammed killed a whole tribe to get to Mekka, and beheaded Jews and others, so what can we expect?

Karan Singh, Your comment may get you arrested under Motion 103. Even though you are quoting the “holy” book.

When a religious scripture devotes almost 65% of its contents on ‘the treatment of non-muslims’ which is all about how to maltreat & subjugate non-muslims instead of love, peace & humanity it is vile & full of hatred.
Just a brief example from that ‘holy’ book:
– Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
– Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood (9:123)
– When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
– Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
– Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
– The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
– Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam (5:33)
– The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
– Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)
– Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
– The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
– Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
– Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the quran (8:12)

Peter, I may have been clumsy in my response to the article’s question. I believe that guns don’t kill people, but rather it’s people who kill people.
With that notion in mind, I’m suggesting that it’s people who are violent – not religion.

Another attempt at moral equivalence. Empirical evidence, please.

“The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly. "
“Love your neighbour as yourself.”

Equilvalent verses from the Koran please.

@ George Dyer – “Asking if religions are violent is like asking; Do guns kill people, or do people kill people?”

Please post a reference to violence in Christianity or Judaism for us please.

Islam as violent as Christianity and Judaism?

What a load of hoey! Christianity and Judaism are not at all violent, but Islam is excessively violent daily!

Democrats, just like the Liberals and NDP in Canada, cannot see the world as it is, but only as their screwed ideology allows them.

Brain dead the lot of them!

Yeah , I’ve always wondered why MAURIE POTVIN only types out the Islamic killings going on in the world and not the Christian killings going on all over the world

This test had to have been taken in a nursing home for patients with severe alzheimers who were coached by Islamic terrorists.

The mark of a Christian is love, and the mark of the devil is death, violence, lies, confusion, and deception, etc.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,770 Attacks, 210,029 Killed, 293,706 Injured that we know of.

Asking if religions are violent is like asking; Do guns kill people, or do people kill people?
Only before it passes through enlightenment, can religion be, and has been, and is, and will be, used to motivate people to violence.

Only 63% of Republicans thought it was more violent? Eye roll!!
