All six of those cities have a low cost of living, and they've all weathered the poor U.S. economy relatively well. In terms of extreme weather, you'd find the least in Pittsburgh and Raleigh. The worst you'll get in Pittsburgh is persistent cloudiness during the winter months, and the occasional flash flood in low-lying areas. The worst you'll get in Raleigh is a heat wave during the summer, and the occasional tornado. Nashville, Austin and Houston are all prone to persistent extreme heat during the summer. Nashville, Omaha and Austin are all prone to tornadoes. In terms of religion, You'll likely find the most Muslims in Houston and Austin. Nashville, Pittsburgh and Raleigh have fewer, but they're still there. Omaha probably has the fewest Muslims.

Pittsburgh has ice, and jobs are not so plenty as one might want ( but better than in most places.) Other than that its a great place. Austin is probably the most progressive of the choices.

Well, whites are the minorities in Houston so wonder how it is for them in terms of tolerance.

Nashville accepts all cultures, i found that surprising when i first went there because i thought it would be segregated like the rust belt or Memphis.

I would say portland and seattle have good economies and are tolerant. Minneapolis would be another contender. Omaha maybe, but i haven't been there so i wouldnt know.

Having been to all these cities, I think Austin edges out the rest, followed by Raleigh, Nashville, Houston, and the other two tie.

No way would Austin, Raleigh or Nashville beat out Houston in this. Not trying to say the others are bad or have nothing to offer. But Houston COL and plenty of jobs is above the other cities. Not to mention it is heavily more diverse than the others by a mile. I would think all cities are pretty accepting. Don't know Omaha though. I think Pittsburgh has the shortest period of extreme weather.

I think this post was pretty much on point.
