I doubt that we are allowed to play the "minority" card.

The resurge in mainline protestantism since 2018 is interesting. I also didn't know evangelicalism seems to be falling, especially apparently young adults.

Americans ages 18–29 are the most religiously diverse age group. Although a majority (54%) are Christian, only 28% are white Christians (including 12% who are white mainline Protestants, 8% who are white Catholics, and 7% who are white evangelical Protestants)
eta: did a quick google search for commentary and this was the best i could find:
