Subscribe to 103.7 The Hawk on

This survey is a (New) testament to the role religion plays in our lives.

Gallup has come out with its annual list of the most and least religious states.

Mississippi leads a charge of southern states, with 61% identifying themselves as very religious.

Vermont, meanwhile, heads a group of mostly northeastern states that are not very religious.

For purposes of the poll, a person is considered ‘very religious’ if he or she goes to religious services every week or almost every week. About 41% of all Americans fall into this category, while 29% are very nonreligious (defined as claiming religious isn’t important to them or they rarely or never go to services).
