A Majority of White Evangelicals Don’t Like How America Is Becoming Less White

Among religious groups, white evangelical Protestants are unique in the extent to which they feel demographic change will represent a negative development for the U.S. More than half (52%) of white evangelical Protestants say a majority of the U.S. population being nonwhite will be a negative development, while fewer than four in ten white mainline Protestants (39%), Catholics (32%), and religiously unaffiliated Americans (23%) say the same.

Most white evangelicals think it’s awful how there are more brown and black people in the country. (Which makes you wonder what color they think Jesus was, considering he was from what’s now the Middle East…)

As Christian author Nate Pyle said on Twitter, “Evangelicals go on mission trips to nonwhite countries to ‘love on’ the people but don’t want to love them as actual neighbors.”

PRRI also noted that 77% of white evangelicals maintain a favorable opinion of Donald TrumpStill. (The survey was conducted in early June.)

Just about everybody else knows Trump is trash, but evangelicals continue clinging to him nearly as strongly as they did on Election Day 2016. No amount of pussy grabbing, or “very fine people on both sides,” or tearing children away from their parents, or kowtowing to Russian interests has made them reconsider their love for Trump. As long as he keeps giving them the anti-abortion judges they want, nothing else matters. Or at least nothing else matters enough to stop them from fawning over him

  1. Well, you can’t really blame the poor, sensitive snowflakes for this. After all, Jesus Christ was as white as they come, and he, along with 7 other white men over the age of 65, founded America back in 1952 based on the motto, “White is right. Fuck everything else.” All these brown and black skinned people are wrong for not seeing how right the white evangelicals are about this. Really, can you think of a group of people who’ve been more traumatized and persecuted in the history of history than evangelical white Christians? I feel SO bad for them. Perhaps, Scottie, you could provide a “safe space” for them here on your blog where the sensitive little sweet hearts can gather and lick their wounds from this cruel, cruel world. I’m sure they’d appreciate you for it. They’ve so few places to gather safely.

    • 😃😆😅🤣😂 Well after my talks with people like Amanda I am not sure the white / white christians would find my blog a very safe space at all. However they are welcome to come for discussion . I really do wonder why these people are so scared of their fellow Americans. Really they seem to think non-whites are not Americans, and I don’t get that. Hugs

  2. Those xenophobes must have missed the parable about the “Good Samaritan”
