Because we can commune with nature so easily?

It wouldn't explain Salt Lake City either.

Hmmm, I expected this topic to be about CO's #2 ranking for the most participants on that Ashley Madison cheat on your spouse website. Guess I was wrong....

I don't think Colorado is particularly less religious than other states. But I do hope people hold its beauty in the reverence it so easily elicits.

In Colorado we worship deep powder, cold runoff, craft beer and great bud!

It's near the bottom according to this Gallup poll:
Mississippi Most Religious State, Vermont Least Religious

I find this quite weird for this reason. I live in the Atlanta area, which is rather religious. I have friends who did some work with the ministry. Some of them have moved to Colorado and have continued their work over there, and they love it over there. Interestingly enough, some of the kindest, most genuine Christians I have met were also big nature lovers.

and thus... witness the change... When I left CO over 30 yrs ago it was the home of Coors and 3.2% was accessible to teens and the ONLY beer you could buy on Sunday! (most stores were not open on Sunday).

Colorado is a 'declared' war zone (politically and values).

Don't step on your neighbor, they may someday dig you out of the snow! Or house you if your own place burns down.
