Adiós blanco América cristiana

The United States is no longer a majority white, Christian country. At 45 percent of the population, white Christians are a shrinking demographic, and it’s obvious, hence the bitter backlash from many members of the group against the country’s increasing diversification.

“People fight like that when they are losing a sense of place, a sense of belonging, and a sense of the country that they understand and love. How do they reengage in public life when they can’t be the majority?” — Robert P. Jones, author of The End of White Christian America.

An Atlantic video.

    I am confused about why you would post this video when it was created in 2016 before Trump was elected President which undercut the premise of the piece. If the point was that white christians are or soon will be a minority in this country that is nothing new. It has been evident to demographers for decades. Saying that white christians are lashing back is also nothing new. How about a video showing how they are subverting the democratic process?

  2. Mike Licht Says:

    The trend outlined in the video still holds. Want the demographics tweaked? Fine:
