Least religious

The Boston Globe has a puff piece on evangelical churches popping up in the Boston area. In some sense I don’t care as long as they leave me alone and don’t get into politics. On the other hand, I really like this:

A 2012 Gallup Poll found that the five least religious states in the country, based on the percentage of self-identified “very religious” Americans living there, are all in New England. Vermont is the least religious, followed immediately by New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. At number 11, Connecticut might as well be New England’s shining beacon of faith.

This is one of the reasons I like living in New England, I don’t have to deal with all those evangelicals.
