A friend shared the data from this survey about muslim attitudes to the legality of homosexuality the other day. He was rather down about it, being gay himself and worried about the attitudes reflected in the survey.

I pointed out that the findings of the British Social Attitudes survey, showed that the attitudes of the muslims surveyed towards homosexuality were roughly consistent with the findings of the BSA survey circa 1995. Furthermore, muslim attitudes towards homosexuality now were far more tolerant than those of the people surveyed by the BSA back in 1987.

That's not too bad. It's still 1996 where I live, but aside from the remote-ness, that's probably mostly due to the high percentage of religious people. :lol:

Comprehensive data indeed, thanks for it.

It should probably be called something like: "How radical British Muslims are" or even "How British Muslims perceive themselves and relate to radicalism". Its missing questions like Brexit or education and healthcare or environment. Though I think I understand journalists short-cuts and scope of various surveys, let me point this out.
