What’s the second-most popular religion in your state?

Thought this was interesting. What it doesn't say is how wide a margin between 1st and 2nd place.

Ontario is 65% Christian and 5% Muslim.

And 23% non-religious, so technically that's second.

... this is my signature!

If it wasn't so cold I'd move there.

Very interesting. Apparently the whole western us is Buddhists.

Strange how it divides like that. But, as many have said before and I am not quite sure why this is the case. Religion is geographical.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

I knew it was Islam.. especially in my area specifically. We have a huge Palestinian population specifically.

The benefit.. a bunch of arabic restaurants that have quality falafel and pitas to eat.

I'd bet that non-religious comes in second in every state.

We don't have states.

The Buddhists that I know (yes, it's anecdotal) seem to be split fairly evenly between the atheist and the theist types (roughly akin to education level -- no surprise).

No religion comes in second for me.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
