Do you want the bad news first?
25% of American Muslims think suicide bombing is acceptable. The percentages are higher amongst younger Muslims.
More bad news: 60% of those surveyed suffer from some form of un-trutherism.
The good news?
I don't have any good news: just bad news and the weather. Gonna be in the upper 80s here in Detroit today.
OK, fine: I couldn't resist the Get Fuzzy reference.
Yes, American Muslims are far, far more reasonable than their brethren worldwide in a variety of issues, starting with the existence of Israel, identifying with America and so forth. So there's heartening material to be mined here.
But I somehow doubt that the media lead on this story would be given such a positive spin if it revealed that 25% of Catholics approved of abortion clinic bombings, or 25% of Evangelicals approved of violence against homosexuals. Especially if the figures were trending upward with the younger generation.
But maybe that's just me.
