You mean 'Christian evolutionists' like the Pope,and the Archbishop of Canterbury,or come to think of it the vast majority of self-identifying Christians?
"Vast majority" is a gross overstatement...
Secondly the scriptures clearly state that man was created by God, not that man has slowly evolved from bacteria and other species. It is fairly difficult, if not impossible, to claim to be a follower of Christ if you believe in evolution. Much like it is quite difficult to claim to be an atheist if you believe in Jesus Christ as Lord.
It's hard to find an exact % on this but the consensus is that 'most' Christians accept theistic evolution.Of course you might not agree with them but whichever way you look at it,that is a minority view.So the Popes beliefs here 'don't make any sense whatsoever,interesting when you consider the hundreds of millions of Christians he represents.
In Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus says "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Christ himself says that only a "minority" (as you call it) will know the truth and follow it.
So just because a "majority" believe something, does not make it true, in fact, according to Christ (whom Christians are named after), it is quite the contrary.
Again, I would re-evaluate what constitutes a Christian if you really think someone who believes in evolution can be classified as a Christian. Jesus claimed to be God, who created humans from scratch, not evolved them from bacteria over billions of years.
Considering atheists are very much a minority you'll never hear me employing argumentum ad populum,I was just clarifying you hold a minority view within Christianity.
