As far as most atheist cities, I've always felt Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and DC were pretty populated by atheists.
Damn dog. You get internet out there?
Ha, just kidding....

I beg to differ.

Austin has lots of Atheists & quirky religious groups.

No, although Houston is a very Catholic city it is also home to many religions from Buddhist to Hindu to Islam to you name it.

Many cities do, especially major college cities. But there's no denying Austin is still in the Bible Belt. In my experience there, there was plenty of that, even some around the University. Which I'm not saying is all a bad thing. Just don't want to mislead people about Austin, because there seem to be many misconceptions these days... I would never categorize it in with San Francisco, Seattle etc... that's just not right.

Yes, the majority of Houston residents are Christian...there are small percentages that identify as Buddhist, Hindu, or Muslim but most identify as Christian. The largest percentage is Evangelical Protestant, with Catholic coming in second.
