How Does Your State Rank in Church Attendance?
« on: February 22, 2015, 11:51:05 AM »


This ought to give the atheists and leftists lots of ammo against the Bible-thumping cons. Utah is certainly no surprise. California with “average” is surprising but note Nevada. For a state where Mormons dominate politics, that's pretty amazing.

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin

it's not surprising, if you think about it. Only 5% of the population of Nevada are LDS.

The state population is 2.9 million, of which 2 million (65%, roughly) live in the Las Vegas metropolitan area- hardly a bastion of traditional Sunday-go-to-meeting types.

CA surprises me a bit, but there are a lot of Hispanics in CA, and they are heavily Catholic and Evangelical.

As for NV, BD nailed it. Las Vegas and Reno have a strong religious minority, but they are a minority. The segments of the hospitality and entertainment industries that are strongest in Las Vegas and Reno probably don't attract many church-goers, nor, likely, are many workers in those industry segments.

New England is lowest ... not much surprise in that. Much sadness, but not much surprise.

I always found New England just very parochial and unwelcoming place.

My home state is below.
My current state is above.
My possible future state is average.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.
