I hadn't thought of Trump in relation to this, but yes, that makes sense to me.

The Washington Post interview fleshes out what the video interview said, good stuff.

You know what still gets me though? When the questions or statements say, for example, “After all, why would the ranks of the unaffiliated be increasing if they weren’t fundamentally skeptical about the existence of God”

When I think it should always read “a god”, it immediately changes the perception that there is only one and that it has any merit in reality imo.

Having been a white xtian for 50 years, I "moved on" a while back (though I was a Catholic, thus not a "WASP"). I'm OK with a president of color; in fact, I voted for him both times. Boo-damned-hoo for the loss of WASP "supremacy", and Trump's appeal to them. It'll be a better day when that crap finally (if ever) disappears.

Welp they're certainly not going down without a fight though, I still feel very threatened by their numbers and authority.

I once read someone compare it to a star going supernova, yes it is dying but it's gonna explode into a violent light show before it goes out. The Christian right is in their death throes right now, it's gonna be spectacular and horrifying. It might not be pretty what they resort to when they just want to save our souls! Because they love us!

Are they really so afraid of what will happen if they lose all control? Maybe we will treat them the way they've been treating us all this time? Yeah, that's probably it.

Well, here's hoping they don't take the rest of the republic down with them in their fall from power.

Yet I would guess from state rep level up the government is still probably close to 90% white Christians.

They are dropping though with power.

Many blacks and latinos are christian - it all seems a bit racist to me. The country is still overwhelmingly christian. So what if the whites are losing power? Who cares?

I disagree. The blacks had no control for the majority of years. As a result they cannot be included in this particular subject matter.

Were they to have had their freedoms or any control at least, events such as the Watts riots would not have taken place.
