US Poll Shows Huge Democrat Bias Toward Muslims Over Christians

US Poll Shows Huge Democrat Bias Toward Muslims Over Christians, by Neil Munro.

Sixty-eight percent of Democrats say employers should grant a request for prayer space by Muslims — but only 45 percent say employers should grant a similar request by Christian employees, says a survey by Grinnell College.

In contrast to the Democrats’ 23-point anti-Christian bias, the November poll showed only a ten point gap in response from conservatives. …

The poll also showed that urbanites, young people, and women were far more supportive of Muslim believers than of Christians, despite Christianity’s orthodox support for secularism, sexual equality, and economic redistribution. …

It’s all about power:

In general, progressives strongly favor imposing variety on society because the resulting “diversity” fragments the coherent civic cultures which help ordinary Americans to manage their families and communities without rule by progressive-led government.

For example, the arrival of a small Muslim group in a large Christian-populated town allows Democrats to argue that religious equality requires the cultural visibility of Christianity be reduced to the same level as Islam. In this explanation, progressives will support the expansion of orthodox Islam to weaken the conservative influence of Christianity.

Also, Democrats tend to favor minorities, even in a democracy, partly because progressives seek to rally a coalition of conflict-ridden minorities against the mainstream, self-governing majority.

Divide and conquer.
