Noun; A person who recognizes the awesomeness that is Evan Peters.

Evan-gelicals are usually lethally beautiful girls with sharp wits and sweet personalities who are more likely to hold the door for someone than take a selfie in public. Occasionally, though, Evan-gelicals are confident males who have mad skills with girls, and who usually have dimples and kinetic smiles.

Evan-gelicals have an unwavering belief that Evan Peters should be in absolutely everything, and will often be heard uttering the phrase "Needs more Evan Peters", much as the phrase "Needs more cowbell" was applied to rock music of the olden days.

They will also Evan-gelize any non-believers in the awesomeness of Evan Peters, even regarding the infamous Carl's Jr Quicksilver commercial.

They're not a cult, but if you accused Evan-gelicals of this, they'd probably just laugh, because, how awesome was Evan Peters in AHS Cult, after all?! You just opened yourself up for an Evan-gelization!

Evan-gelicals who didn't notice how great Evan Peters was during their first viewing of American Horror Story because of his exemplary skills that allow him to disappear into a character and just become that character, but who eventually woke to his skills during a second binge watch viewing, are known as born again Evan-gelicals.
Steph: What are you being for Halloween?

Lila: Probably one of Tate's dead cheerleaders.

Steph: I didn't know you were that into Murder House!?

Lila: I wasn't! Maybe I was too young. Around Freak Show, I noticed how good Evan Peters was, and saw how the dearth of his presence left Roanoke so flat and empty. Then I went back and re-watched from the beginning, as a born again Evan-gelical! *giggles* Am I bad???

Steph: No, I think it's cute!

Lila: Yeah. Evan-gelical. It's a thing.

or

Kyle: How would you rate all the seasons of AHS?

Madison: They're all great! But as an Evan-gelical? I obviously thought Cult was the best because it had the most Evan Peters. He played, like, six people. And he was great as all of them! Roanoke was my least favorite because Evan Peters was barely in it. It just needed more Evan Peters.

or

Dan: The Fox version of Quicksilver sucks. What's with the Hot Topic outfit and the breakfast sandwich?

Ruthie: That's blasphemous! *laughs, because Evan-gelicals are cute and witty* I thought that commercial was adorable! Besides, didn't he get everyone talking and interested in the movie doing that spot? The ad worked.

Dan: *scoffs* Put enough time into thinking about a Carl's Jr ad?

Ruthie: *shrugs* Well, I'm an Evan-gelical. He can do no wrong.

Type of Christianity that places authority in the Bible as the infallible word of God. This does not necessarily mean a literal interpretation of everything in the Bible (cf. creationism). Not to be confused with evangelism, which means something entirely different.
No-one knows what evangelical means.

A generalization of multiple groups of Protestant Christianity. It's not actually a denomination, but a category that churches of many denominations fall under, ranging from some baptist churches in the south to non-denominational churches in the north and along the coastline. Using that criteria, the majority of protestant Christians in the US probably fall under the "Evangelical" category. Despite popular belief, they are real, tangible people, who are just as capable of being discriminated against as the people who they are frequently (and usually, falsely) accused of being discriminated against. An Evangelical Christian is best characterized as someone who wants to spread the Gospel of Christ by being living examples to the people around them. Real Evangelicals do not believe in forcing people who are not Christians to act like Christians, because they believe that Christ his followers to only come of their own free will.

Evangelical Christians should NOT be confused with "fundamentalists," a term that has come to mean someone who is far more mental than fun. Evangelicals tend to believe in more literal interpretations of the bible, but that does not mean that they are against scientific study or using critical thinking (after all, how can you understand how the Bible applies to your life without critical thinking?). Also, they do not want religion to control the government, because as Martin Luther figured out during the dark ages, religion controlling government is actually a cheap disguise for the government controlling religion. True Evangelicals want freedom of religion, and that includes the freedom to share the gospel with others.

Evangelical Christians are a large, and unfortunately, misunderstood part of the global population. They are constantly stereotyped as being hateful, bigoted people, even though many of them have done many great works for bringing rights to people and sending help to places. Evangelicals want to change their communities for the better by changing the people, one person at a time. Maybe if people came to realize that the large majority of Evangelical Christians are actually legitimately nice people who enjoy life and are happy to share their happiness with others, they'd realize that the mainstream perception of "evangelical" is merely an aggressively propagated stereotype that aims to strip Christians of their legitimacy as human beings.
Brainwashed simpleton: "Evangelicals are all idiot rednecks who think that Dinosaurs are a hoax and they want to kill everyone who doesn't go to their church and destroy America!"

Evangelical Christian: "I'm an Evangelical Christian. I am from the New England coastline. My dad is a scientist. I do not believe the people go to hell for being in different church denominations, which includes Catholicism and Orthodox. I lean libertarian in my voting, and do not want the state to control religion. I believe in the protection, safety, and rights of all people, and that it's my mandate to share God's Word with them, if they are willing.

Comes from the word 'evangelism', which means spreading the good news about jesus christ.

So inturn evangelical is living your life in the way that god wants you to, so that others may see you and see how god has worked in your life. It is not a way of forcing a religion on someone.

It can also mean to speak to people about jesus.
"To believe in jesus christ is a choice and it can not be forced on anyone."

Don't try and force god on someone, pray, let god sow the seeds and just be a mate!

According to society, the only demographic that should feel ashamed of themselves when campaigning or when casting a vote.
Jesse Jackson is welcome to campaign for John Kerry to his fellow African Americans. Ditty can mobilize Gen X and Y to do the same. But drat anyone who campaigns in front of an evangelical.

6
A sect of christianity that is full of mindless, brainwashed followers who spend their entire life in misery when they aren't spreading the gospel. The whole sect is full of middle class/rich white folks who want to go to church to be entertained by crying, hysterical preachers and find new prejudices to be in support of. They believe that their religion is the only way of life and refuse to accept any other ways. There is no 'conversation' with evangelicals...they only convert. BEWARE.
President Bush is an evangelical christian. Need I say more on why he seems so mindless and stupid?
