15 American States Mostly Dismiss Religion

Evangelical activists keep on insisting that the United States is a Christian nation, but a new survey shows that in many parts of the country, the majority population isn’t even serious about religion in general, much less Christianity in particular.

A recent survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life reveals that, in 15 states in the USA, a majority of people say that religion is not a very important part of their lives. These states are the following:

Alaska
California
Colorado
Connecticut
Maine
Massachusetts
Montana
New Hampshire
New York
Oregon
Rhode Island
Vermont
Washington
Wisconsin
Wyoming

People living in these states represent about 30.4 percent of the population.

Nationwide, the survey estimates that 44 percent of Americans don’t believe that religion is very important in their lives. Given that even many of those Americans who say that religion is very important in their lives are not Christian, how can it be accurately claimed that the United States is a Christian nation?

    Religion, politics, rule of law – they’re all out the window now. Religion doesn’t matter, politics is a sham and the rule of law only applies to some of us (not, for example, Goldman Sachs, the FED, and the Bush/Obama administrations of “justice”). Anarchy, here we come!
