… and White Evangelical Protestants are trailing everybody.
The trend is growing slowly — admittedly too slowly — in the direction of equality in all the other religious demographics, but the megachurch crowd shows us once again why their popularity is waning and why younger generations are getting the hell out of there.
It’s not like the other religious groups are that much better — and 66% in the “Unaffiliated” category isn’t exactly a number to be proud of — but to be that far behind progress?! That takes a special sort of bigotry.
We obviously have a long way to go, but this graphic raises an interesting question (which I’ve mentioned before): Would you rather see evangelicals remain this anti-gay because it pushes people away from their faith, or would you rather they come to terms with reality and support marriage equality?
