STUDY: Muslims More Accepting Of Gay People Than White Evangelicals


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A research discovered that white evangelicals are less tolerant of gay individuals compared to Muslims. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Kim Horcher the hosts of The Young Turks, inform you the results of the study. Inform us exactly what you assume in the comment area below.

" Head of state Donald Trump pledged to defend the LGBTQ neighborhood versus "radical Islamic terrorists," who he claimed was the best risk to equality and also tolerance. Nonetheless, a brand-new research exposed a change in beliefs about homosexuality among American Muslims.

According to Church bench Proving ground findings, Muslims have come to be a lot more accepting of gay and also lesbian individuals in the last ten years compared to various other belief teams, specifically those that recognize as evangelical Protestants, The Christian Article reported.

Bench discovered that Muslim assistance of homosexuality enhanced by 25 percent from 2007 to 2017, while evangelicals saw only an 11 percent increase. Muslims surpassed evangelicals in their support, nonetheless. White Protestants accept homosexuality to the tune of 34 percent, while 52 percent of Muslims say that homosexuality ought to be accepted by culture.

Still, it's American Muslims that usually get indicated as intolerant. "Actual time" host Costs Maher is well-known for bashing Muslims, along with other religious beliefs, for their conservative sights.

" We have to be real on both matters. Yes, the 'God Despises F * gs' individuals show up with placards and posters, as well as it's despicable, but they don't turn up with guns as well as bombs," Maher said in 2016 after the Orlando Pulse Night Club attack. "That's just the globe as it is today. The answer is not to outlaw Muslims, nevertheless. The response is to ask even more of Muslims, I assume."

    there are 12 countries in the world where u can be executed for being gay. Every single one of them is Muslim. True liberals aren’t Islam apologists.

      vox is as bad as the young turks. Watch their video with Linda Sarsour. The woman who defends sharia law and female genital mutilation, but also calls herself a progressive liberal and organized the woman’s march. LOL. They portray her as kind kind of activist hero. Vox and TYT and both so biased it’s pathetic.

    Hmmm…..compasrisons of total number of gays thrown from rooftops with religious sanction would be more useful.

    • Posted by HerrMisterTheo, at Reply

      Also, there was no implication in regards to historical context. Everybody is well aware that back in the day homosexuals had a REALLY bad time, to put it very mildly, but as of right here right now, the worst thing an Evangelical can LEGALLY do to a gay person is disliking/hating them. The worst thing that happens to gay people in countries like Iran, Irak and Saudi-Arabia, amongst others, is legally torturing and killing them. There’s a subtle difference. Can you see it?

    • Posted by philajfran, at Reply

      You are aware that a gay man was shot and killed by a white homophobe in Florida a few days ago?

      Or is gunning gay people down in the street better than throwing them off a roof?

    • Posted by Pablo Escobar, at Reply

      Ronin Dave That’s false. Your talking like >100 delusional but also not violent white trash compared with millions of violent Muslims.

    • Posted by HerrMisterTheo, at Reply

      “You didn’t watch 30 seconds of the video, I take it?”
      “President Donald Trump loves to blame Quote Radical Islamic terrorist as being a threat to the LGTBQ community, but is that really the case? Some recent findings from the Pew Research Center have found that Muslims have become much more accepting of gay and Lesbian people in other faith groups […]”

      How is that NOT conflating American Muslims with Muslims in general. For fucks sake, the first words she utters are basically “Trump says, Radical Islamists are a threat to the LGBTQ community, but are they?”. How is that not a deliberately misleading conflation? Not only is this belittling the suffering and violence LGBTQ individuals have to suffer under Radical Islam and under several Muslim regimes, this implies the attitudes of a Muslim born and raised in California are indicative of the attitudes of people born in Saudi-Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan etc. Spoiler Alert: They’re not. MUSLIMS are not more tolerant of gay people that White Evangelicals. AMERICAN Muslims may very well be, but not MUSLIMS blank.

      The comparison is flawed anyway, because Islam is a whole religion, whereas Evangelicals are only part of a much bigger religion. If they weren’t so intellectually dishonest, they’d have to compare Islam to Christianity, but I guess the results of that survey wouldn’t fit the agenda.

      Also, are we just going to ignore that in the very study they’re citing, people are much more likely to be accepting of homosexuality if their religion is less important to them? As in “The less important Islam is to me, the more accepting I am of homosexuality”. They probably won’t put it that way, but the numbers speak for themselves. Maybe that should tell you something.

      Ronin Dave – ISIS has 10s of thousands of members and is conducting a war of extermination on non-Muslims and Muslims not devout enough. Further, they’re actions pretty much parrot what Mohammed and his sucsessors did when Islam was spread from Spain to Central Asia. The Westboro Baptist Church has about 32 members, pretty much just the Phelps family members. So ISIS comes much closer to being representative of Islam than the WBC does of Christianity. THEN there are Boko Haram, Al Shabab, the Taliban, Al Queda, Hamas, Hizbolloah, Al Nusra etc… They’ve all killed thousands. The WBC on the other hand, has killed NOBODY.

    Nope. Muslims hate gays a hell of a lot more. Many places in the world are very very unsafe for gay people because Muslims still think and act like we’re living in the 7th century. They are very violent and backwards. We know this to be true.

There’s no way that there are this many trolls in the comments of this video. Which would mean that a lot of these TYT fans (not all) are completely anti-Muslim and are liars about most, if not, all Muslims in this country.

      And we all know you are hypocrites and liars, you are pretty much the garbage of the earth.

      But, can one of you extremely dumb, worthless, ignorant sheep offer an explanation on why something is fake?

      Its kinda obvious that you will say fake to anything you dislike, because you are so dumb, you need to censure reality itself. But it would be intresting to hear what insane reason you sheep have for repeating that meme over and over. Is it because you are dumb and have no free will, and you need to be told what to say and think? Is “fake news” and “cuck” the mating calls of Trump sheep?
      Is it just that you dont know what the words “fake” or “news” means?
      What is it? why do you want to display your extreme ignorance so often?

      WeeabooMatt I believe they directly addressed that argument in the video by focusing it on US Muslims, with the implication that some general rhetoric (even if intended to be focused on foreign born Muslims) may damage US Muslims.

      I’m curious about the further granularity with US born Muslims and foreign Muslims since foreign born individuals was lower than the general US population polled.

      Point being this was a study about american muslims. Who, apparently have quite different values distinct from those living in those countries. Uganada comes into play, when making comparisons. It shows that when one lives in a country with a backwards culture, where committing horrific acts is seen a justified, religion is only an excuse.

    American Muslims don’t live under Shariah law they have to obey American laws. In an actual muslim country like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan and so on gay people would probably be killed on sight. Considering in a fundamentalist muslim society being gay is an offense to Allah. In Secular countries like the USA, and various European countries gays can go about their normal life in peace without bother. Can’t say the same for any Muslim country.

    • Posted by Stannis Baratheon, at Reply

      rouge1ful Honestly, though. Anti-homosexuality is s cultural thing tied to the desire to spread the societal seed and expand population. Deterring homosexuality was advantageous to leaders wishing to grow in size and power. This eventually worked its way into religion, and through modernization we have veered away from intolerance and towards higher technology. Now nations can spread power and influence through advanced technology as opposed to primarily the strength of numbers. The same is not so in third world countries.
