Some correlation ?

Florida seems to be the least religious state in the entire South.
Who knew? I guess it's either Florida or Virginia. Maybe Delaware.

For some reason this upset my Re-born Christian Evangelical Aunt when we went together on vacation.
People celebrate differently.
My Re-born Christian Evangelical sister loves that kind of thing. You wouldn't get her near the Tarot card reader, but other than that, she'd have loved it.

Hardly anyone even talks about religion? So were all those Jehovah's Witnesses in Miami that would come to my house or talk to me at the bus stop, were they actually talking about the stock market?

Florida may not be as Bible Belty as a whole, but its got its good share of religious people and "not being that religious" also does not equate "atheist."

Remember that there's also more religions than just Christianity.

I find it interesting how Islamic Philly is, I never understood why inner city Black men grew their beards out until a few years ago; it's not even uncommon to hear names such as Makmoud, Abdul-Rauf, Aladji, Sayeed, Tafeek, etc. (Yes, these are people I actually know)

When I lived in Miami, most of the people I knew weren't exactly religious, but they still believed in a religion.

It's in Asia, but it's also Eurasia, and Mediterranean. That particular section of Europe can be very religious; Bosnia, Armenia, Greece, Macedonia, Italy etc.

Florida:
70% Christian
24% Unaffiliated

I can only speak for Austin, which really isn't "Southern" but more of a Southwestern city. That said, it is a very secular city and there are a lot of atheists here. I've lived here for 16-years and nobody has ever asked me what church I go to. Religion doesn't come up in conversations at all. This is also home of multiple atheist organizations, as well as home base for The Atheist Experience TV show: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Atheist_Experience

Durham-Chapel Hill/Carrboro and Asheville would near the top for least religious cities in the South.

First, take out the panhandle, and watch those numbers change. Second, remember the largest Christian denomination in Florida is Roman Catholic, most of whom aren't that religious and don't give a hoot about other people's religious dispositions.

Jehovahs witnesses are everywhere. No escaping them even in Europe where atheism is more prevalent. I've never crossed paths with a Mormon though. That happens a lot out in Oregon, Washington, etc.

Raleigh, Austin and Orlando are the 3 major cities that probably have the highest % of non-believers. Wouldn't surprise me if Atlanta has the most in terms of raw numbers though.
