Most religious U.S. States

For whatever importance polls have, they are still a small indicator of how people feel towards God and church when you compare the self identifying respondents’ answers in this Gallup poll – read more about it here- http://www.gallup.com/poll:

The most religious states in the country in 2012 were in the southeastern area of the United States, according to a new Gallup poll. And Mississippi led the pack as the most religious state in the country.

Mississippi remained the most religious state in the union in 2012, with 58% of its residents classified as very religious. At the other end of the spectrum, Vermont remained the least religious state, with 19% of its residents classified as very religious.

The 12 least religious states comprise the entirety of New England – Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut – along with the three most Northwestern states in the union, Alaska, Washington, and Oregon, plus the District of Columbia, Nevada, and Hawaii.

Overall, 40% of Americans nationwide were classified as very religious in 2012 – based on saying religion is an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or almost every week. Thirty-one percent of Americans were nonreligious, saying religion is not an important part of their daily life and that they seldom or never attend religious services. The remaining 29% of Americans were moderately religious, saying religion is important in their lives but that they do not attend services regularly, or that religion is not important but that they still attend services.

      you are right. This study identified being religious with the frequency of going to church. I guess that’s a start, but unfortunately, it is no indication of anything deeper.
