  • Yes. Portland, Oregon.

    Which is odd since it's the largest city/metro area in the state of Oregon, and Oregon is one of the top 10 **least** religous states. LOL

  • Nope. But I live really close to number 30 on the list. Of course I don't know if their samples included all religions and it doesn't seem like they took into consideration the incomes of the area and participants in comparison to how much these places receive in donations as a percentage but that would probably make a big difference to. If ther is a poor comunity but the donate more percentage wise that to me indicates more religiosity among the community. No matter what it will probably be flawed as a study and really doesn't affect anyones faith.

  • Not in the to 10 but in the top 50, which cracks me UP. How in the world did they figure this out (maybe I'd know if I read the article, lol). I think that list is wrong though. =)
