Bright bigotry?

Peter Steinfels looks into some of the unreported findings from the big religion and politics poll released last month. My favorite: The people with the biggest negative shift in their assessment of Islam aren't Evangelicals. They're "seculars," who Steinfels notes are "not the sort to be captivated by Pat Robertson or the Rev. Jerry Falwell" (New York Times 8.2.03, reg req'd). But of course, they are the folks most likely to adopt a negative attitude toward religion generally.
