Apparently, Americans are reaching a clear-headed understanding of who Evangelicals actually are.
Thirty percent of adults in the United States have a “positive” perception of evangelicals as Americans increasingly view the religious demographic through a political lens, newly released Barna Group research indicates.
According to the evangelical polling firm, evangelicals make up about 6 percent of the U.S. population but have assumed a “unique place in national discourse.”
“Based on a nationwide study of U.S. adults, we found that, though many people still view evangelicals as a committed group of believers who put their faith first, their political connotation puts the future of American evangelicalism in a precarious spot,” a summary of the new report, “The Brand of Evangelicals,” reads.
Heh. We’re talking about people who are immobile on Biblical inerrancy and, as their support for Donald Trump shows, Silly Putty on character. Good riddance.
