Boise is More Religious Than Seattle
They've come up with a list of the least religious cities in America, and Seattle is in a three-way tie for first.
How did Boise do?
Actually, there are no Idaho cities on the "least religious" list. But there are lot of cities out here in the West that rank in the top 10, according to MarketWatch.
Isn't it Las Vegas that they refer to as "Sin City?" It's 5th on the list of the least religious places in the US. Here are the Top 4.
1. Portland, Ore. (tie): 37%
2. San Francisco, Calif. (tied for first): 37%
3. Seattle, Wash. (tied for first): 37%
4. Denver, Colo. (tie): 29%
Those percentages are the people in those cities that are unaffiliated with any church or religion.
For a lot of us, going to church is a personal choice that we'll make regardless of what others around us are doing. We'll just get to brunch a little bit later than the non-church-going Sunday crowd. Is church important to you?
