Pew just released a study about Muslims and their attitude toward religious freedom. Apparently 80% of Muslims in Egypt support religious freedom. And by that I mean, the religious freedom to be a Muslim.
Almost 80% of Egyptian Muslims say they favour religious freedom and a similar number favour sharia law. Of that group, almost 90% also think people who renounce Islam should be put to death. Confused? So are they.
So much for “radical Muslims” who support death as a punishment for small crimes (like leaving the faith) being a fringe minority.
