“The Rise of Evangelicos” – Time Magazine’s feature on the fastest rising segment in conservative Christianty – Latino Protestants. (TIME)

“Latino evangelicals are one of the fastest growing segments of America’s churchgoing millions. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, more than two-thirds of the 52-million-plus Latinos in the US are Catholic; by 2030, that percentage could be closer to half, and many are joining evangelical Protestant ranks. It is difficult to track the numbers of the groundswell of these new Protestants. They often meet in storefronts or living rooms, and language barriers complicate the census process.” – Elizabeth Dias

“The Young Hispanic Shift: More Religious, Less Loyal to Democratic Party” (Christian Post)

“A Gallup poll recently released showed that not only is there an increase among Hispanic Catholics shifting to Protestantism, but that these new converts are shown to be markedly more religious than the number of those belonging to their former group. It was also found that the shift seems to have been occurring mostly among U.S. Hispanic Catholics 30 and younger.” – Nicola Menzie
