    I am very surprised that Detroit is getting more openly non religious because it was so influenced by both the Roman Catholic Church and black baptist churches for a large part of its 300+ year history. It is also looked upon as a conservative city as well.

    I am surprised that Austin, Texas isn't on this list even though it is the capital of ultra religious, red republican Texas.

    I wonder where both Buffalo and Milwaukee rank in regards to being least religiousicon_question.gif

    The media leads us to believe that Socialists are not religious, which of course isn't necessarily true


    Of course it isn't.

    Wouldn't it be better to pray for the souls lost to sin, than do a study of those least Religious? We live in days akin to Noah's time and the city of Sodom and Gommorah. When God looks down from Heaven he sees there are indeed very few who are righteous or live righteous lives.
