84% of Egyptians favor the death penalty for those who leave Islam.
Asked which side they would take in a struggle between "groups who want to modernize the country and Islamic fundamentalists," 59 percent of Egyptians picked the fundamentalists, while 27 percent picked the modernizers.
82% support stoning for those who commit adultery.
54% support a law enforcing segregation of sexes in the workplace.
Yet 88% support a free media.
How can these attitudes all add up to a democracy?

Why would it be any of our business how they run their country? For Muslims, Islam is their way of life, including in politics, for Christians it's Christianity and so on. The percentages of what you posted are not included in the Pew link you provided. So where did you get them?
If you don't like it, don't move there.

Yourspecialkid, it depends on what their definition of Shariah law is. Such as Islamic Banking system. Shariah law is a way of life, and the countries who practise it twist and make up rules to their liking.

Grlygrlz2: I said Quote: If you don't like it, don't move there.
Let's pick this sentence apart shall we? The OP posted this. So the "if you" is to the OP, "don't like it" means hates it, "don't" meaning DO NOT, "move" as in pack your bags, apply for Egyptian Citizenship, get on a plane and move, "there" meaning Egypt.
I hope this is clearer. If I wanted to kick Citizens out of the country, I would have just said so.
