More Americans believe the nation would be better off following the teachings of the Bible than the Koran’s teachings. In a phone survey conducted by LifeWay Research, 1,000 Americans were asked their views on the Bible and the Koran. Each respondent answered whether each text is dangerous and if it would be good or harmful to American society to follow the teachings of each. While the majority of Americans do not consider the Koran dangerous or harmful, they also disagree that its teachings would be good for America to follow.
Highlights of the findings
24 percent of Americans agree that the Koran is a dangerous book, while nine percent agree that the Bible is dangerous. Eighty percent agree that following the Bible would be good for American society, compared to the 28 percent that say following the Koran would be good. One in four Americans admits they are not sure if the Koran is dangerous or good.
