[Serious] Americans, do you think that an Evangelical Christian theocracy will come into full effect over the next few years/decades? Why, why not?

  1. Doubtful. The most recent census pins evangelicals down to 23% of americas population, and that numbers falling as older generations die off.

    While it’s always been possible for minority radicals to shoehorn policies through democracy, that’s going to becomes *very* difficult to maintain once that number dips below 1/5th of Americans. So the answer is no.

    Years? Maybe there will be some more nonsense. Decades? Absolutely not, and that’s just the numbers.

    *Edit for further clarity: the percent of religiously unaffiliated rose at a consistent rate of about 9% the past decade, just under a 1% increase per year. If these rates continue, unaffiliated will have about a 2 to 1 on evangelicals before the decade’s out.*

  2. If we can’t vote Republicans out of office in large numbers up and down the line—local, state, federal—I’m afraid evangelical Christian theocracy is where we are headed. The GOP has clearly shown us over the last several years that this is their goal and I think we need to take them seriously. Please vote in the upcoming midterms.

  3. We have people openly identifying as Christians fascists and most Americans don’t care so yeah I’d say we’re seeing a 1930s germany repeat

  4. It will be more like a Neo-Fascist government which has full support of the Evangelical Christians.

    The Neo-Fascists will use the Evangelicals for their own reasons.

  5. No. I don’t think so. I think the media is going to continue spreading hyperbole and creating mass hysteria that will cause more civil unrest. That’s more likely.

  6. No. Rates of people self identifying as Christian has been falling for decades at this point. If the country breaks apart, it is possible some of the areas of the schism do take this path, but I don’t see it being common.
