About that fear of refugees

From a recent Gallup post… Yes, it is pretty unfortunate and wrong how much Americans are needlessly opposed to Syrian refugees, but it is interesting to see how much this opposition is driven by Republicans.  Sure, even 40% of Democrats disapprove of admitting the Syrian refugees, but check out these numbers among Republicans:

And, of course, I can’t help but thinking about what a high percentage of this 85% are Jesus-loving Evangelical conservatives.  Better to just focus on what Jesus had to say about sodomy (oh right, nothing).
