Muslim-Americans and white evangelicals find themselves on opposite sides of many issues but have more in common than other religious groups when it comes to religious fervor, scriptural literalism and social morality, according to a new report.

The report by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found that U.S. Muslims and evangelical Christians consistently scored closer than other groups, including black Protestants, mainline Protestants and Catholics.
