Your country or your faith?

Dr. Zin of RegimeChangeIran reports on a poll suggesting that many Iranians may be more loyal to their country than to Islam. Details of the poll are almost nonexistent, but it appears to be an online poll. It may even be in English, and on a site primarily visited by overseas Iranians. So too much can't be read into it. But it is a good sign, not a bad one.

My exposure to Iranians living in this country, however, suggests that many are indeed arther secular in the way they live their lives, even if some of them remain Muslims.
