A new CBS poll published in Breitbart.com found that two-thirds of Democrats believe that Islam does encourage violence—but to the same degree as any other religion.
The February 2017 poll also found that just one in seven Democrats believe that Islam is more violent than other religions, such as Christianity, Mormonism, Judaism and Buddhism, reported Breitbart.
That’s a position the American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) desperately wants to refute. The topic of Islam is a frequent discussion on the APN radio ministry, “Stand in the Gap Today,” which airs on 425 stations nationwide. “Stand in the Gap Today” hosts, which include APN President Sam Rohrer, have welcomed numerous experts who educate Christians about the dangers of Islam.
The poll also found, Breitbart reported, that Republicans have a far colder view of Islam, with 63 percent seeing Islam as aggressive compared to other religions. Additionally, about one in 10 Democrats believe that Islam is less violent that other religions, according to the poll of more than 1,000 adults.
For ongoing coverage on the continuing debate over the travel ban from seven Muslim nations, consider interviewing Rohrer, who has his finger on the pulse of what pastors are facing in their churches daily, including questions about current immigration policies.
