The Science Says Christians Will be a Minority in US Within 50 Years


They told you it was just your race being replaced, and Ben Shapiro said he didn’t give a damn about the “browning of America.”

It turns out, Ben Shapiro also didn’t give a damn about the Islamification and atheistization of America. Because he’s Jewish.

The Guardian:

Christians in the US may become a minority group by 2070 if recent trends continue, according to data released by the Pew Research Center.

To predict how the US religious landscape will change over the next 50 years, the center posed several questions: “What if Christians keep leaving religion at the same rate observed in recent years? What if the pace of religious switching continues to accelerate? What if switching were to stop, but other demographic trends – such as migration, births and deaths – were to continue at current rates?”

The center modeled four hypothetical scenarios, based on trends including no switching, steady switching, rising disaffiliation with limits and rising disaffiliation without limits.

The scenario of no switching hypothesizes that Christians will keep their majority through 2070. But in that scenario the center predicts the share of Christians will still decrease by 10 percentage points over the next 50 years, “primarily as a result of Christians being older than other groups, on average, and the unaffiliated being younger, with a larger share of their population of childbearing age”.

The steady switching scenario predicts that Christians will lose their majority but will still be the biggest US religious group in 2070.

“If switching among young Americans continued at recent rates, Christians would decline as a share of the population by a few percentage points per decade”, the center said.

“In 2070, 46% of Americans would identify as Christian, making Christianity a plurality – the most common religious identity – but no longer a majority … the share of ‘nones’ [individuals who are not religiously affiliated] would not climb above 41%”.

The rising disaffiliation with limits scenario will see “nones” become the largest group in 2070 but not a majority, assuming “brakes are applied” to keep retention among Christians from decreasing below 50%.

“If the pace of switching before the age of 30 were to speed up initially but then hold steady, Christians would lose their majority status by 2050, when they would be 47% of the US population (versus 42% for the unaffiliated),” Pew said.

Last, for the scenario of rising disaffiliation without limits, Christians would no longer be a majority by 2045, assuming that switching rates before the age of 30 were to accelerate. As a result, by 2055, the unaffiliated would become the country’s largest group at 46%, ahead of Christians at 43%.

In each of the scenarios, non-Christian believers will double in proportion, to represent 12% to 13% of the US population.

This is one reason why I would never attack the Mormons. Maybe they believe in Space Jesus, but at least they believe in some kind of Jesus and they act normal in society.

I support any Christians breeding more, but evangelicals just don’t. Evangelical boomers failed to pass on their beliefs to their children, now you just have a gigantic gaping would in the soul of America.

We need to fix our religion, and fix feminism, and really start breeding a lot, frankly. But we need to breed within a religion that can be passed to the next generation, or it’s just a waste of time – our kids will join the Jews.

We need some kind of real religious revival. We need it as a basic practical matter. And that must come from a religion that is stable. “Bible Believing Christianity” and other forms of evangelicalism simply do not work. They have failed, miserably.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Church is gaining ground in a secularized society.

So, figure it out.
