Posted on 05/09/2013 11:16:30 PM PDT by South40
Six months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, just 25 percent of Americans said Islam is more likely to encourage violence than other religions. That number has climbed to 42 percent, according to a new poll released Tuesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.
The survey, conducted after the Boston bombings, found that opinions have not changed much as a result of those attacks. In March, 40 percent of Americans said Islam is more violent, 42 percent disagreed.

That few? Are the rest asleep?
What’s hard to believe is that the other 6 out of 10 dont
The 6 out of 10 were the textbook definition of low information voters.
Please someone tell me any other present day religion that is violent -— NOT just violent people who also claim some religion.
60% of people are not just low information, they are plain stupid.
Those same 40% also said that homosexuals are NOT less likely to bear children than other “orientations”.
That same 40% also said that Obama was the greatest president ever.
Than same 40% also said that ...
(you get the picture)
But, but,,,remember the Crusades! See,, that proves how violent Christianity is! ////
Dey just afraid dey gonna be blowed up if dey say it is.
6 out of 10 are too terrified of being killed to say anything.
and the thousands...no MILLIONS of abortion clinics and womnynz who get blowed up by kwistians every dey!!!
The movie “Idiocracy” comes to mind. This comedy nails our tragic situation.
Yet the Christian faith is growing bigtime in the global south!
Sleeping and in denial. And this is the downfall of the US.
I think the others are what are called "low information voters".

Bush was a tool for overstating the ROP angle. The intention to prevent random acts of reciprocity was admirable, but the chronic endeavor was ultimately condescending and counterproductive. Islam is not a ROP, it’s about conformance to the consequence of suffering and death.
There’s a reason for Christianity. Embrace it.
That’s about right.
Bush set us back 50 years in properly dealing with the issue with his “peaceful friendly religion” nonsense.
Liberals are too embarrassed to agree. Of course they mostly know the truth deep down.
“The gap grows with partisan differences: 69 percent of self-described conservative Republicans say it does, 71 percent of professed liberal Democrats disagree.”
Also there is no indication of how many “don’t know”s there were. I suspect a lot amongst the 31% conservatives that are not in the “agree” coumn.
The other 6 are too scared of Islamo fascists to answer.
74% of the French.
Cheese eating surrender monkeys rule!
6 out of 10 aren’t paying attention.
Only four in ten????
There are certainly a lot of idiots in the U.S.
Only 40%, that’s sad.
6 in 10 said “wuh”.
“That few? Are the rest asleep?
Only 47% of the Americans who bothered to vote said no to the Obamanation. Therefore it isn’t hard for me to believe only 42% of Americans believe Islam is violent. This tells me the propaganda machine of the governing elites is effective in shaping the opinions of the majority of the people .
Face it. Americans are much more concerned about who is winning on American Idol than they are about foreign and domestic threats. The average American believes the government will protect him. After all Obama said so and Obama would not lie.
The other six must be brain dead.
6 in 10 Americans unable to answer izzlamic violence poll since their heads were in the sand.
Proving that brainwashing and indoctrination by government schools and the liberal PC media have rendered 6 in 10 Americans effectively brain dead.
Watch these Navy SEAL Team VI families and other family members as they reveal the Obama Administrations culpability in death of their sons in the fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan following the successful raid on bin Ladens compound. This is a powerful and riveting briefing that included some of Americas most significant military leaders.
Video of their funeral has an Imam condemning the fallen SEAL warriors.
Only 4 in 10?!
Even though it looks like “American Idol” is falling apart. Just heard that Randy Jackson is calling it quits.
Are the other 6 insane or mentally competent?
Or just plain fearful.
60% of America is muslim???
What are they fearful of?
I believe they are just plain stupid. People who live without seeing what is going on around them
A good definition of Democrats. They ignore what they see that is going on around them.
If not for Bush... there would have been no obama.
Study: Six in Ten American’s have difficulty knowing their asses from a hole in the ground.
Six in 10 Americans not paying attention, or have been brainwashed by the media and public education.
Just plain ideological i.e. leftist ideology. A very large pct. of that 60% know the truth about Islam, but they've been conditioned to hate Christianity. And under the axiom the enemy of my enemy is my friend, they refuse to say the obvious: Islam is the greatest threat to civilization above every other kind of ideology. Of course, another perverse ideology, leftism, keeps the civilized world from combating violent Islam.
Yet at the same time, in the global south, Christianity is GROWING by leaps and bounds.
And we wonder why we have an Islamic socialist for president.
How many Americans does it take to change a light bulb?
