Would expand the WASP definition to include all white people that primarily speak English and include Catholic, Mormons and other denominations because of how common it is for people to change churches. Catholics like Joe Biden and the Kennedy’s and Mormons like Mitt Romney are just WASPy as any Protestant, perhaps old stock American is a more accurate term
