Moderate Islam

According to an article in the Jakarta Post, “a survey was conducted last month by the Center for Islamic and Society Studies” a University in Jakarta, Indonesia “involving some 500 Islamic studies teachers.” The results were enlightening.

21% want the death penalty for converting away from Islam

58.9% support stoning for various crimes

68.6% opposed having a non-Muslim principal

85.6% prohibit their students from celebrating western holidays

87% oppose having their students learn about other religions

97% do not think they are responsible to teach tolerance to their students

Indonesia is considered by many to be one of the most moderate Muslim countries on earth. The true face of moderate Islam! Note that these are not just the views of random people on the street. The respondents were all school teachers who will affect the next generation!
