    The Most Religious US State Is ...
    Once again, Mississippi reigns as the most religious U.S. state, with 61 percent of its residents classified as "very religious," according to the results of a Gallup survey released Monday (Feb. 3).

    In contrast, only 22 percent of people in Vermont ranked just as devout, and the Green Mountain state held onto its title as "least religious."

    This list is quite impressive when I think of our oppression, slavery and the imposition of religion on us.

    True indeed, but the absence of Texas ranking high on the list somewhat surprised me.

    It's interesting that the list is also in line with the most backward of states.

    Without a doubt bro. Corvo, but let's not forget Northern States were equally involved in perpetuating slavery, its just disguised or forgotten now:


    African slavery is so much the outstanding feature of the South, in the unthinking view of it, that people often forget there had been slaves in all the old colonies. Slaves were auctioned openly in the Market House of Philadelphia; in the shadow of Congregational churches in Rhode Island; in Boston taverns and warehouses; and weekly, sometimes daily, in Merchant's Coffee House of New York. Such Northern heroes of the American Revolution as John Hancock and Benjamin Franklin bought, sold, and owned black people. William Henry Seward, Lincoln's anti-slavery Secretary of State during the Civil War, born in 1801, grew up in Orange County, New York, in a slave-owning family and amid neighbors who owned slaves if they could afford them. The family of Abraham Lincoln himself, when it lived in Pennsylvania in colonial times, owned slaves

    That's right Corvo, Southern States are notorious for keeping is in compromising positions, across the board. But the black part of town, regardless of the State, remains to be the Ghetto, or commonly known now as the Hood.

    Religious meaning what, exactly? Bible believers or any religion at all?

    Connected or not connected with Spirituality?

    It always seems as though they are talking almost exclusively about Christians, though I thought most see religiousness in other beliefs as well.
