As a theologian and biblical scholar, I wish to respond to two points made by commentator Thomas Schaller, whose disdain for using religion to underwrite war I share ( "The Islamic State's false promise," Sept. 30). The practices he attributes to fundamentalist Christians in military institutions are simply more extreme forms of the misguided religious language used to support war in general. We see this, for example, in the pervasive rhetoric of "God bless our troops" from the president on down to local newspapers, church prayer meetings and everyday conversation.

The group's members have also threatened the Christians living in the cities they have taken over to convert to Islam, pay a fine, or die. The ironic thing is, they are doing all this in the name of Islam. The Holy Quran, however, commands Muslims to protect all sites of worship regardless of what religion they belong to (22:41)

The LGBT respondents were also less likely to attend religious services and more likely to describe themselves as nonreligious. The disparity, Gallup reported, could be driven by a number of factors.
