Mississippi Still Most Religious State

Mississippi in United States svgThis isn't exactly news for those of us who live here, but a recent Gallup Poll shows that Mississippi remains the most religious state in the U.S. This is the same result Gallup reported in 2009 and to which I referred in a previous post.

What I find encouraging is that atheists can be found right here in Mississippi. Not only that, but growing numbers of us are organizing and speaking out. We still have an incredibly long way to go, but I think that more of us are becoming less patient with the status quo.

At the very least, we can provide those among us who are questioning their faith with a place to begin exploring alternatives. We can show them that there are atheists in Mississippi and that people right here get by quite well without religion.
