A friend pointed out this poll. It’s an internet poll which means only the opinions of the people who take the time to respond are counted. However, I believe it shows some tendencies. And Muslims have only themselves to blame for the negative feelings about Islam that are evident.

    The problem that I have with the AFA is that they never do unbiased polls. I used to subscribe to their newsletter, but lately (meaning in the last year or so) they’ve done some things that I think are 1) arguably unethical and 2) are actually somewhat, if not counterbiblical, than at least counterproductive to the furthering of the Kingdom. I kind of unofficially withdrew my support for that organization a while back. They have good intentions, I’m sure, but I question their means.

    TMS: Good points, and I’m glad you brought them up.  Until I saw this poll, I had not heard much about AFA.  Thanks.

    Oh, and this WordPress theme needs a link back out to your frontpage. ) Currently, I have to modify the URL to get back there from here.

    TMS:  I’ll let my blog designer (Beth of Blue Star Chronicles) know about that.  She’s working on some modifications of my theme anyway.  I want a new header.  -)
