Louisiana One of the Most Religious States- Gallup Looks at Religon State By State

Louisiana is at the the top of something good.

The good people at Gallup asked that question and came up with an interesting snapshot of which parts of America are most devout:
Want to be almost certain you'll have religious neighbors? Move to Mississippi. Prefer to be in the least religious state? Venture to Vermont.A new Gallup Poll, based on more than 350,000 interviews, finds that the Magnolia State is the one where the most people — 85% — say yes when asked "Is religion an important part of your daily life?"

Less than half of Vermonters, meanwhile — 42% — answered that same question in the affirmative.Joining Mississippi in the top "most religious" states are other notches in the Bible Belt: Alabama (82%), South Carolina (80%), Tennessee (79%), Louisiana (78%), and Arkansas (78%).New England predominates in the top "least religious" states: Following Vermont are New Hampshire (46%), Maine (48%), Massachusetts (48%), Alaska (51%) and Washington (52%).

No doubt Mississipi beats us out because of the number of residents that have turned to God for the reversal of woes of the Ole Miss and Miss State football programs. Who knew former Coaches Ed Orgeron and Sly Croom were indeed such instruments of God

The Deacon Bench has more at States of faith
