Gallup just put out the lists of the Top 10 Most Religious States and Top 10 least Religious States in the country. This was based on responses to the question: “Is religion an important part of your daily life?”
Can you guess which states are at the top?
My guesses were pretty good on that one. Except for Utah — Not in the top 10.
The ones at the bottom, though?
Not so much.
(Who knew Sarah Palin‘s state was less religious than Oregon?)
It is sad to see that fewer than half the citizens find religion to be important in their lives in only four states.
(Work on it, Alaska.)
Even more telling is this map of the United States, comparing the most religious states (dark green) to the least religious (offwhite)
Are there any surprises on here for you?
