It’s what the bible-hugging, gun-toting GOP always feared: The minorities and heathens are taking over!

The GOP may need to find another angle as a new study has revealed that white Christians are no longer the majority in America.

“As the na­tion re­lent­lessly di­ver­si­fies, both in its ra­cial com­pos­i­tion and re­li­gious pref­er­ences, White Chris­ti­ans now rep­res­ent just 46 per­cent of Amer­ic­an adults, ac­cord­ing to Pew cal­cu­la­tions provided ex­clus­ively to Next Amer­ica. That’s down from a 55 per­cent ma­jor­ity as re­cently as 2007, and much high­er fig­ures through most of U.S. his­tory.”

With the loss of majority, one can expect this new disadvantaged group to express the level of their persecution in new and creative ways. One should expect to see unprecedented scare tactics and increased racial tensions. The War on Christmas this year will be the biggest ever, with the call for religious iconography on every cup, napkin, and bumper sticker.

If the Conservative party hurries, they can turn this back around in a few short years by requiring every ivory skinned, God-fearing woman in the U.S. to start popping out tiny angels of the Lord. As it stands now, the GOP might just have to return to sane politics that don’t invoke the bible in every speech. But who are we kidding? They would much rather continue to suppress the rights of others as they pursue their dogmatic and exclusionary political system.
