A rose by any other name is still a rose and the entire system of political economy in the West is based on the Protestant "narrative." So long as we are all bound to that system, the "white Protestant male" narrative is still the universal. Even this article is predicated on the disjunction between white male Protestant against what it's not. The rest are still the Other and our culture, government, laws, economic system, in a word our social institutions are universalized aspects of the Protestant narrative. Breaking that narrative would literally involve a radical re-organization of social reality.

When I read "Protestant" in the American context, I'm thinking less "Calvinist work ethic, Martin Luther reformation" type Protestantism  and more "Supply-Side Jesus, White Evangelicals for Trump!" type Protestantism.
