As one of the people you are seeking to describe, I really don't care. Neither are offensive and both acceptable. White identifies a skin tone, Caucasian means a person with roots in the Caucasus Mountains.

What is Negroid Caucasian and Mongoloid?

Negroid, Caucasian, and Mongoloid are outdated and inaccurate terms once used to categorize human populations based on physical characteristics. They are considered derogatory and have been replaced by more scientifically accurate and politically correct classifications such as African, European, and Asian. These terms perpetuate harmful racial stereotypes and should be avoided.

How is CAUCASUS an ethnic group?

Caucasus is not an ethnic group. Caucasian is typically used as a more politically-correct term for White, which is a racial category. The idea is that most Whites have distant origins (over 3000 years ago) that trace back to the Caucasus Mountains. The Caucasus actually has numerous varied ethnicities, which is why there are numerous language families in close proximity within the Caucasus mountains.

Are religious people more apt to be politically correct?

Note that being "politically correct" has nothing to do with politics; it should be properly referred to as 'social acceptability/socially acceptable' (and even that isn't the best description). It is basically acting in a fashion that will cause the least possible offense to anybody that may hear or see that act. For this reason, a person of religious affiliation is just as likely to be "politically correct" as anyone else.
