Exactly, obviously some messed up criteria at play here.

Springfield, Missouri I would be willing to bet would score very low on this list, just because of all the Pentacostal, Baptist, and Assemblies of God foundations down there. I would also expect a similar result in places like Wichita and Evansville, Indiana.

STL scored a 100? Oh man we have to fix that quick. That's way too high.

I don't really get how St. Louis scored 100 and Chicago and Minneapolis didn't, and there are a few other similar oddities, but for the most part I actually think this is fairly accurate.

perhaps if you read the methodology and ranking criteria, you would see why st. louis scored the highest of any other midwestern city. it's all right there in black and white.

I'm not saying St. Louis doesn't deserve it, I'm saying Minneapolis and Chicago deserve it too...
