I would have to say my home state of TX, you can't be more religious than TX I bet.

No Utah? I would say that it's one of the most religious states, if only through the influence of religion rather than an overwhelming number of people being religious.

Probably Texas though, of the ones you've listed.

Mississippi/Alabama.

On that list, it's a tossup between Georgia and Texas.

Even some small Bible Belt towns would be on par with UT. I should've listed UT now that I think of it.

     Why is California on the list? I think being home to entire cities where irreligion is considered normal and having the topic be nonexistent in political discourse on the statewide level makes it a nonstarter.

it's Utah, regardless of whatever the numbers may be.  nowhere else does a church have such a deep and wide degree of influence.

Utah, followed by Mississippi and Alabama.  Not sure why none of those 3 are on the list.  California and Florida may not be in the top half.

Oklahoma should be on the list, and I thought the Gallup survey that was posted would have had us higher than 48%.

Amusing that most of the states on that list are actually very un-Christian in so many ways.

Utah is not 'of those' -- hence the ensuing controversy.

Tweed and Franzl are completely right. Objectively, it's Utah. At the same time, the 'Christian' dominance in so many places is so counter intuitive that it takes away from their cultural power.

Dude, all three of the cities you named are covered in churches.  Churches everywhere, for every religion you can  think of.

But how many people go to those churches? and by religion, do you mean Denomination or actual religion?
