6. I hope that ice melts under them soon and they all disappear.

According to Pew Research, 25.4% (2014) of people are evangelicals, down from 26.3% in 2007. Of that number, 76% are white. The share of nonwhite evangelicals that has been growing are Asians, black, Hispanic, and mixed race.

Here’s an interesting statistic from Pew about evangelicals. “Roughly one-in-five evangelical Protestants (21%) are college graduates, while 35% have some college education (but not a four-year degree), and 43% have a high school education or less. Among those in the overall public, 27% are college graduates, 32% have some college experience, and 41% have a high school diploma or less education.”

That they’re less educated than the general population is no surprise. Roughly 16-17% of the population (the white evangelicals) has a huge influence on our laws and government, and that will change over the next decade because many of these people are older and their children are not necessarily following in their extremist religious footsteps—a very good thing.
