Orlando is religious. They worship a giant mouse.

Maryland would likely have the highest percentage of non-believers in the South. According to the Map previously posted, MD is certainly the least religious.

Haha, in all seriousness though, last year driving through Orlando we passed by a Bible theme park on the highway.

1) Austin
2) Any prominent college city i.e. Raleigh-Durham
3) Bohemian towns i.e. Asheville

Orlando (Orange County) has so many churches & places of worship though it's not even funny even though it is a liberal place.
I guess libs love God too !

Miami definitely not, it's a heavily Latin city. Many people here are Catholic.

Miami is one of the least atheist cities in the USA. Do a survey here, and almost everyone will declare they believe in God with many being active church goers. It's just Catholicism instead of America's brand of Protestantism.

In Florida, probably the most atheist area is Key West.

Lived there ten years. Never came up. A very live and let live town and most of my friends were liberal. The conservative people migrated from the other metro areas in Texas.

DFW has a reputation as being religious, but in most of the places I hang out in Dallas, most people are non religious. Poll most people out in Uptown or Deep Ellum on a weekend night and I bet they would tell you going to Church isn't on their itinerary for the weekend. I think many of my coworkers who are older and live in the burbs go to church at least some of the time, but none of them have ever asked me about my religious affiliation or anything. Not that it would bother me to be asked.
