We’ve Reached the End of White Christian America

We’ve Reached the End of White Christian America

The remarkable truth is this: America is no longer a white, Christian country. And that’s going to have profound implications. In the early 1990s, fewer than one in ten Americans said that they were religiously unaffiliated. That number today is nearly a quarter. It’s 23%. About two-thirds of seniors identify as white and Christian. But if we go down to the youngest Americans, those under the age of 30, only 29% of that group identify as white and Christian. Today, we have zero Protestants on the U.S. Supreme Court, and if Merrick Garland is confirmed, we will have five Catholics and four Jews. The 2012 election with Romney versus Obama is a good illustration of just how quickly the power of white Christian America has declined. Romney actually did pretty well with white Evangelical voters. He had all his basic marks his campaign should have hit. If he had run the same campaign he ran at the same kind of support he got in 2004, he would’ve won. But what had changed between 2004 and 2012 was that the religious and racial landscape had shifted just enough that it wasn’t enough to put him over the top. Now obviously, we’re seeing Donald Trump running with this playbook. We may have a real test case on our hands about whether or not there are in fact enough white Christian voters out there for a Republican candidate to win, relying on those super majorities. One key question is what does it mean to be an American? What is the image of America that comes to people’s minds when they even hear the word America? I think that’s one of the things we’re struggling over in the country today. For many white Evangelicals, I mean they see something that looks like a Norman Rockwell painting – a white Protestant family gathered around a Thanksgiving table – and I think for many that evokes this era of the 1950s, where white conservative Christian values really hold sway. Compare that to the Coca Cola commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. We had all kinds of families, you know. They were black. They were white. They were Latino. They were Asian. And they were Muslim. And they were Christian. And it set off a firestorm of controversy. You know many conservative white Christians saying like this is not at all the America we ought to be celebrating. In fact, it’s a departure from this image that we have. 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. So thinking about the descendants of white Christian America that are still with us today, and again it’s still 45% of the country. It’s a lot of people. How do they re-engage in public life when they can’t be the majority? On the one hand, their are leaders I think such as Rusell Moore at the Southern Baptist Convention, who is really trying to take these issues really seriously and to figure out how to engage in a way where they’re taking one seat at the table and not pretending that they own the whole table. On the other hand, I think we’re seeing some real reactions against this. And we’re seeing it with the Evangelical leaders who are really supporting Trump. calling for Christians to kind of turn out and reclaim their dominant space in public life. There just aren’t the numbers out there for that to happen. America is no longer a majority white Christian country.

  1. I am a white Agnostic who is culturally Christian. The elites have wanted to destroy the powerhouse that America once was so that they could establish their global government. This is how they did it. Christian white Europeans are what made this country what it was. We invented the airplane, the automobile, electricity, the telephone, the computer and the internet………….in this country! If it continues on this trajectory I will leave the United States to the trash who have usurped it. These entitled scumbags who claim its really their country and not ours. It's quite a sad story, but they will get theirs in the end………….I know that for a fact.

  2. For those that are promoting the fall of the USA will be the first to regret it if it happens!

    They will see what the world is like without the moral compass, generosity and compassion of Christians.

    Christians have been demonized by the media for so long now that people have forgotten and this new breed is coming online. Wait till they have full rule of the most powerful Nation in the history of Earth and you are going to see people literally begging on their knees for the Christians to come back and save them from the tyranny of the left and foreign influence.

  3. I wish that Christianity in Africa would decline, instead it is growing, fuelled by poverty, hardship and ignorance. There are more churches than schools and hospitals in some African regions.

  4. May we build a land where all people of all gods and no gods share the wealth and toil in solidarity. Here's to a polytheist and atheist, multiethnic future, where all can benefit from many hands and many minds.

  5. white ppl don't have enough kids to compete. mom and daddy be 54 kid be 8years old mean while my mama 58 with a grate grand kid yall folks being out number in the sex and reproducing department. cant take all that money wit yall and don't have no kids to leave it too O bih we wining

  6. Not that as many White Christians anymore… Yet Trump won with most of the support of the Christian community….Simple: You are not counting the MANY Black and Hispanic Christians who also voted for him…. And of course the many conservative atheist who also voted for him.

  7. The only hope white people have in the United States is Balkanization, the white regions of the nation splitting off to form their own countries.

  8. Counting the days until you white people are the minority. Don't worry, you will be treated EXACTLY the way you treated black and brown people..

  9. I see a lot of gloating and "it's about time" in these comments. it's a real he who laughs last scenario. If the globalists and the non-whites they use to bring this about succeed across the west, there truly won't be any safe, free and prosperous countries to go to. Find me a non-white, non-christian country that is successful, beside Japan. And they take next to no foreigners, same as all the Asian countries, same as most countries, except us foolish westerners who won't know what we had until it's gone.

  10. We the People disagree. Apparently only whites are 'racist'? OK for non-whites to vilify US? Pathetic.

  11. If you think that voting in a Democrat at this time is a good idea your a fool. Bottom line we are where we are because of our Christian roots. Allah didn't get us here or The Saudis to the moon. They only know how to bag their women (burkas) and behead people truly a backward culture that packages itself well because of oil money. A disgusting 8th century view of the world. We need someone that stands up for Christianity or we are doomed as a great society. I am not a bible thumper. I am a realist. It is to the point now they want to scrub the word Lord of monuments. Stand up and stop the ridiculous influx of people from cultures that will never mesh with our values.

  12. America enslaved God's chosen people and treat them like crap and subhuman even until this day. How can you not expect judgment?
    Revelation 13 10
    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity.
    Y'all ain't seen nothing yet. White people can get ready

  13. WOW!!! I bet this dude feels like an idiot now in retrospect. The US is still majority white and that doesn't even matter because the 1% who rule are still white and it doesn't matter how many brown and blacks their are. They will always rule the white, black and brown slaves by continually keeping them divided by they're skin colour.

  14. What does it mean "white Christian"? Christianity is UNIVERSAL religion, that means every ethnicity or race can be part of it.

  15. If white people disappeared (died) off then blacks will suffocate in each others poverty and start looking for white people around the world to blame it on for free $.

  16. Christian people are too soft and easy and weak, they all project either weakness or mental illness, perversion.. USA IS DEAD.

  17. Trump got all the white Christians and the white agnostics. Killary got all the Hispanics and the few blacks who turned out to vote for her.

  18. Whites in my opinion have always never really wanted anyone else to be a part of their Christian family it always seemed like they have to so they can get a reward or something and I've believed in christ all my life just an observation

  19. All I can say is thank God we have had too much Christians down holding us as slaves making laws that govern our country based on their belief system

  20. Wow whites thinks that America is white. Damn you. You invaded here you fuckin brits. Go back to Britain. This land belongs to people of colour. And take your fuckin cking Relegion with you too

  21. The America I grew up in was awesome, being a white male and Catholic, it was such a great time. Born 1964 Philadelphia. What the hell happened to the America I once knew!!! Damn my kids will never enjoy the freedoms I had growing up. What ashame!!!! Too much PC.

  22. This means the end of America. It's not just happening in America ,it's taking place in the UK , Canada , Australia , Germany , and a handful of other western Nations . Incidentally , all these Nations were built predominately by Anglo Saxons , and are the choice of immigrants coming from failed third world Nations .

  23. The founding fathers built this country for a people of faith. The roots of American values are destroyed and it has lots to do with the media medaling with the culture

  24. I wish the title was correct.. Christians have destroyed this country and they keep at it. If we had left zombie carpenters behind and followed common sense, we might have had a chance. Get ready for China to be the world super power. It’s going to take so much money to get America back on track, it will never happen. I don’t know why we care about color. Keeping the country going was and is more important, but people care more about this shit. We are done

  25. When people let go of god, they try to become the God of their own lives, this has profound social implications, the US constitution would have never been interfered with historically as even the amendments within the document were biblical so seen as god given rights, now people have made the Government their God, whereas the constitution was seen above the government, now it is the other way round and the same freedoms that made America prosper are now slowly being torn away to make room for Agenda 2030.
    Aint progress great?

  26. Not ttue as e white says usa will.become very religious again but in.a.bad way they wil pass the sunday law

  27. atlantic Mag is dumber than dogchit…. theyre so racist they make up racial assertions that aren't true….."hispanic" or "latino" isn't a race,,it's an ETHNICITY… they're every bit as "caucasian" as an ethnic Swede is… to show my point,,,, compare your avg. SPANIARD with your average SICILIAN OR TUNISIAN ,, OR EGYPTIAN,,, ETC. ETC. .. ALL THIS "no longer white" chit is just a half-wit effort to foment separation, disunity… to BALKANIZE US FROM ONE ANOTHER …. AS IF THE MEASURE OF A MAN AMOUNTS TO HOW MUCH M ELANIN ONE MIGHT HAVE IN THEIRT SKIN,,, IT'S HALF-WIT RACISM



  29. They(White conservative “christians”) Show their true color, yellow bellied crying bitches when things don’t go their way.

  30. The Lord Jesus said that this time would come and there would be a great falling away. This is a spiritual war,the Anti-Christ will have his throne for a short season. Jesus will return and the world will go back into the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Narrator gave a short version, and now I tell you the other short version of what WILL and is happening right now. For just as in the days of Noah and Lot show shall be the coming of the Son of Man.

  31. Americans bullshit a lot about Jesus and God and the Bible, but we all know they worship the all mighty Dollar! Trump might be the last stand, the last crazy ride of the "bible belt"crusaders and the white masters as political overlords. . Before you attack me you should know that my name is not Ike Turner or Muhammed and I am a white European!!

  32. What´s wrong with Catholics huh? Not everyone has to be protestant to be Christian. Now, I understand the sense of belonging and for the most part I would support this video 100% if u didn´t mention the white part. There´s nothing wrong with being white neither of being asian, mulatto, mestizo, or black and i don´t think how more variation in ethnic background would do any difference as long as the values and principles of what makes great AMERICA still hold.

  33. Maybe those aren't the right categories anyway. Can't people choose the groups they identify with without being told their skin color is the most important thing about them, only to have every analysis and judgment under the sun based on the faulty assumption of "race" as the most important/dominant factor dictating behavior? If these kinds of analysis were performed without reference to skin categories (which assume a false sort of kinship), how would the percentages change in a category like religion, or class, or values?

  34. Good. Let's diversify more. There is no way a decline in this majority is even a problem. WASPs just like to think it is.

  35. Just to get it straight, western countries haven't been CONSERVATIVE christian since at least the end of the 18th century. The 20th century in america is just an illusion of christianity where people praise and embrace Liberal /secular values without knowing about it.

  36. Im a direct descendant from the mayflower. We are not going in the right direction. I dont hate but once you mix everything together you have nothing original and pure.

  37. The world needs Christianity. The world needs Jesus. If you look at the colonial history, the people interested in money who didn't care about God only enslaved, and looted. But the Christians built schools, orphanages, ended slavery, promoted civil discourses and changed the world for the good. Biblical teaching have changed the world. Turn to God.

  38. Oh goodness is this what made some trump supporters go crazy and the racists and white supremacists came out of hiding? I bet this is a part of it. Smdh

  39. Yes now america confuse, drugged up, violent, hat-full deceived ignoring history true facts morals and true freedom or not learning form there past., don't know how good we got it.becoming third world. history show most great country fall in there prime. thank God he never changes.

  40. One must wonder if so many of you have read the bible. It is called a great falling away, just as it was written. Why so surprised? These will be the most wicked and selfish people to ever walk the earth. Lovers of themselves. Like Trump said, you let them in and like I had said, they come for your children. They say to one another, "give them anything but Jesus, anything but the truth, raise them to despise and oppose Jesus and the truth". This is now the America you have.

  41. American people has never been christian. There were some cults invented by jews a couple centuries ago. Now people don't give a shit about them.

  42. There's nothing shameful about admitting that you are a white Christian and that it makes you sad to see your country changing so much. It doesn't mean that you don't welcome people of all different culture into your country it just means that you don't want to lose the Christian Foundation from which you where raised in two. We have to accept it but it doesn't mean we have to like it and it doesn't mean you were racist if you don't like it it just means you like things to be regimented and the way you used to. For a person to admit they're proud of being white and Christian seems to be a topic of persecution nowadays and it can't be any more far from racist as it is. I would think any country you go to anybody would feel proud of who they are and what they've accomplished. Doesn't mean you're proud of the things that we're not so great.

  43. The greatest Christian Revival is at dawn… just like no one saw Trumps Victory coming, the sleepwalkers will be shocked when they see how the love of Christ fills America more and more.. It has been a spiritual battle, and the Light is winning.

    There are surely many Fake Christians, and we need to Wake Up our dear brothers and sisters too as well as the people who are unaware of the Spirit which is always here, but only reveals Himself to the humble.

    Time to get real with a Christ like moral standard, which create such genuine joy, to inspired people with

    With great new art and music

    We will be stronger than ever before

    Remember, stay in the love of Elohim, and then you can judge righteously without letting your speech blend with the wicked tactics of the world. If these comments and social media in general making you sin, stop, pray, get into the right state, then continue

  44. Anyone who has read the Bible, knows that mystery Babylon is America, and that mystery Babylon was to fall !!!! This country is out of here lol Lmaooooo which means white ppl will be the minority very soon lol good luck to y’all

  45. The US made itself the forefront nation of western civilisation. More scholars are saying, like this video does: we are witnessing the decline of the west. Unfortunately, in the case of a decline, the US shall will have to go down too. It’s history, it’s in the books. It’s like looking at your childhood bully and realising that he was just just hurt, and was acting out. And then realising you were just poor, that is why you accepted being bullied. It’s all OKAY! I hope we can transition peacefully to the next arrangement, without unnecessary suffering.

  46. I wasn't shocked to see there were more dislikes than likes on this video.

    A lot of people viewed America as a "melting pot" that mixed cultures together back then. The concept of diversity isn't new.

    This video made me lol 😂

  47. Hey, "White Christian Americans"? Have you heard anything about Native Americans? You now, nice guys with feathers on their heads, you kinda live on their land. Stop fucking complaining. You stole their country from them, and now complain that other people are stealing your land which you stole from them. That's retribution.

  48. evangalical christians are nutcases that support genocidal apartheid regime because of it being mentioned in their fairy book,so i think this is a good thing.
