Muslims in Egypt support religious freedom, as long as “religious freedom” means believing what they do.

Total beers: 3  (I’ve started up the live stream where you can come tell me what to sing for a donation to the SSA, no matter how small.  :D)

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.
