    Default Pew research poll reveals that 3/4 of Muslims in Pakistan/Egypt hold extremist views

    Pew Research poll reveals that more than 3/4 of Musim respondants in Pakistan, Egypt, and Jordan support the death penalty for people who leave Islam. The figures for Nigeria reveal more than 50% support for such an atrocity, and most worrying of all is that almost a third of Muslims in relatively moderate Indonesia likewise answered in the affirmative. On the plus side, Only 5-6 percent of Muslims in Turkey and Lebanon think that people should be executed for their religious beliefs. This poll should be expanded to cover more Muslim countries and held annually in order to keep up with this troubling situation.

    Hooray for euphemism.

    All of the (profane) euphemisms were in the deleted thread; exept for my moderated language and lack of venting, everything I posted is essentially what I posted before.

    And to clarify my position for people who thought my post was "racist", I consider support for the execution of apostates to be morally equivalent to support for child-rape, hence my outrage: does this mean I'm 'racist' against ancient Greeks now?

    The same purpose as anyone else who starts a thread in the politics subforum.

    Can you be less ambiguous please.

    Not sure what you're trying to say exactly. You disapprove of apostates, aright, fair enough. Relate it to the post with a meaningful connection.

    Ill pretend your post was serious: I strongly dissaprove of anyone with homicidal (passive or otherwise) intentions towards apostates (I'm an apostate, albeit from Christianity to agnosticism), and thnk anyone who is more offended by this thread than they are of the people who interprate Islam in this way have seriously skewed priorities. People would rather shoot the messenger than confront the gravity of the problem; reform won't occur unless despicable beliefs are challenged.

    I'll turn this question around: can anyone provide reasons why I should not be be outraged by this information?

    So what? Many people in the US would like to teach creationism in schools.
