Religion & Violence

Through interviews with 2,482 Americans, Gallup found that 78 percent of Muslims believe [state] violence which kills civilians is never justified, whereas just 38 percent of Protestant Christians and 39 percent of Catholics agreed with that sentiment. Fifty-six percent of atheists answered similarly [to the Muslims].

  Raw Story

But… (or should I say, “and?”)

A Pew poll found in August of 2010 that just 30 percent of Americans have a favorable view of Muslims. Republicans lead the divide, at 54 percent who hold unfavorable views, compared to 27 percent of Democrats.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
