white christian a minority new PRRI study

"White Christians now account for fewer than half of the public. Today, only 43% of Americans identify as white and Christian, and only 30% as white and Protestant. In 1976, roughly eight in ten (81%) Americans identified as white and identified with a Christian denomination, and a majority (55%) were white Protestants."

what they don't mention is that White Christians are even a smaller minority since most sects hate the other sects and are sure that they are the only TrueChristians(tm). 

and an interesting article of why evangelicals tied their wagon to the orange idiot as an "end of life bargain".

Yep, that second linked op ed nails it. Their now-undeniable decline has made them so desperate that our wanna-be Il Duce is an acceptable ally.

Like I said awhile back, the good news is that they're in decline. The bad news is that as they realize it, it makes them even more willing to act out their apocalyptic fantasies.
Live a good life... If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.

And now you know why they supported Trump even though they realize he is a dick.  If 11 million can be deported it helps the "white" Christians try to maintain there #s.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
