Depends on what you call a town. Out in the sticks we have a post office and some stores, but no town. It is very dispersed and there are a bunch of churches out here. Boggles the mind.

Portland Oregon is 13th in the list of the most chruch-LESS cities in the US. San Francisco is number one.

The northwest in one of the least religious areas of the US. I like living here for that reason.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Four. One each Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, and Uniting.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Six churches - RC, Episcopal, UCC, UU, and two non-denominational - and a Catholic abbey - in a town of 6,500.

Two. At least one of them looks good - it was built in year 1302.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

There are 8 here and it seems like a low number considering the population.

I voted at a church and I'm aware of one other. I honestly have no idea if there are more churches, but I would expect that there are given the population and demographics of my area. Churches don't impact me, so that's probably why I don't notice them.

My strategy of ignoring my problems until they disappear never seems to work out for me. ...I'll try to get around to dealing with that in the near future.

No clue, but there are 10 within a few miles of my house.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Using the Arda link Pablo shared, 177 in my current metro area for about 195k people. For my hometown's "micropolitan" area, 231, covering 3 counties, the largest city in which is my home town of 16k population. The micropolitan area of where I went to grad school is 214 for a county of 89k people.

Need to think of a witty signature.
