American Muslims, Atheists Most Likely to Reject Violence

"A new poll out by Gallup shows that out of all the religious groups in the U.S., Muslims are most likely to reject violence, followed by the non-religious atheists and agnostics. 78 percent of Muslims believe violence which kills civilians is never justified whereas just 38 percent of Protestant Christians and 39 percent of Catholics agreed with that statement.

The poll underlines the misconception held by many in America that their Muslim countrymen are violent. If this poll is correct, it ironically seems Christian Americans are the most in need of a reminder of the peaceful teachings of their saviour and moral model, Jesus Christ."
