Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… – First Amendment, U.S. Constitution
I happened to see a poll from Gallup about which regions in the United States are most religious and least religious.
Care to make a guess?
The Southwest and Southeast regions of the United States lived up to their reputation as the home of the nation’s Bible Belt in 2017, producing nine of the nation’s 11 most religious states. In contrast, the Pacific and New England regions have 10 of the 11 least religious states for the year.

Gallup concludes with this observation:
While the percentage of all Americans who are very religious has shrunk over the past decade, the differences in religiousness between the regions have held firm, with no indication that these regional differences will change in the near future.
Have a great week!
