You don’t need to be an expert in Islam to understand the religion uses Sharia law to perpetuate violence amongst its followers.

You also don’t need to be an expert to see the violent effects of this religion and its cause of terrorism in the Middle East.

But a new CBS poll will certainly make your head explode.

According to this new poll, almost 7 out of 10 Democrats believe Islam “encourages violence… about the same as other religions.”

It’s obvious Democrats already have a distorted view of Christianity, but this view on Islam is grossly egregious.

According to Breitbart:

“The trusting attitude towards Islam is revealed in the February 2017 poll follows 17 tumultuous years of attacks against Americans motivated or shaped by Islamic ideology throughout the United States—from the 9/11 atrocity to the Pulse nightclub attack in Florida committed by an observant Orthodox Muslim man from a Muslim family.

Merely one-in-seven Democrats believe that Islam is more violent than other religions, such as Christianity, Mormonism, Judaism, and Buddhism. One-in-ten Democrats believe that Islam is less violent that other religions, according to the poll of 1,019, which was taken Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.

In contrast, Republicans have a far colder view of Islam. Sixty-three percent of Republicans view Islam as aggressive compared to other religions, and only two percent view Islam as more pacific than other faiths.

Still, 25 percent of Republican voters believe Islam’s encouragement of violence is level with Christianity’s doctrines, including the Beatitudes passage, reported by Matthew: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

The Koran, in contrast, is deemed by Islam’s adherents to be a direct transcript of Allah’s many commands, including these belligerent commandments; ‘I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.’

Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress.  Indeed.  Allah does not like transgressors. 

So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterward or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens.”

Of course, former President Obama has always perpetuated the same notion that Islam is just as peaceful as other religions.

Obama even said once that Islam means “peace”.  It doesn’t.  It means “submission”.

But that didn’t stop Obama’s ridiculous belief from trickling down to other Democratic leaders as well.

A recent letter from three senior Congressmen argued:

“There are other three million Americans who practice Islam peacefully. The specter that there would be a Federal program that—in name and action—singles out people of a particular faith warrants immediate [critical] consideration by the Department of Justice.”

Make no mistake; there are many progressive liberals who actually believe much of the violence is literally caused by Christianity, although few make the argument that the violence is motivated by Christian doctrines.

A recent article from Salon noted,

“Conservatives claim that all terrorists are Muslim, but most violent attacks in the U.S. are carried out by white men.”

A columnist from The Daily Beast wrote:

“However, and this will probably shock many, so you might want to take a breath: Overwhelmingly, those who have committed terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe aren’t Muslims.”

What world are these people living in?

Despite the obvious notion that Islam does fuel violence all around the world – to actually believe Christianity contains the same violent notions isn’t just wrong, it’s a dangerous delusion that will alienate people who are searching for answers.
