Thanks for the link, Patrick. Unfortunately the mobile site pops up a screen-filling and deceptive ad about 30 seconds in. I really don’t think Walmart is going to give me a $100 gift card for filling in their survey.
Check your browser, you might have some malware on your computer.
More likely is that a rogue advertiser won the 100 ms auction for the right to place an ad on that particular response. Happens fairly often on the mobile pages of less well known sites.
I say this because
- I run strong anti-malware
- maintain good browsing hygiene, and
- the phenomenon has become quite common in the past few months.
Why would anybody want to identify as a “white evangelical?” That makes about as much sense as claiming to be a “semi-carnivorous vegetarian.” The two terms don’t completely rule each other, but they do show a fundamental confusion of emphasis and / or identification.
The label applies to the group of people who identify as evangelical and are regarded as white within the Ametican ethnic spectrum. Collectively, the group acts differently than non-white evangelicals in important ways, which is why sociologists use the label.
But is a study showing a reluctance to use a label that only appeals to sociologists all it’s cracked up to be? The tone of the rhetoric employed seems to predispose a negative outcome. When did we all stop beating our wives, as Peaceful Science bloggers, anyway?
