Mississippi Voted Most Religious State In America

The worst state for women is the best for worship
After being named the worst state for women to live in, Mississippi has another honor to hang on their refrigerator. They are also the most religious state in America.
The findings come from a recent Gallup-driven poll where people all over the United States were asked just how religious they were.
The survey explains that it calculated the “very religious” as those poll respondents who said that religion is “an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or almost every week.” And since Gallup found, naturally, in an earlier survey that Christianity is the most widely held religion (78% of U.S. adults adhere to a version of the faith) in the U.S., the more churchgoing states were also the more religious.
Utah, Alabama, Louisiana and Arkansas rounded out the top five "most religious states."
On the flipside of that, it seems like all of the heathens live in New England. Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Alaska landed in the top five of least religious states.
No church? Legal weed? Lower than average unemployment? Sounds like heaven to somebody out there.
