I'd sa the least religious are probably San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and Washington DC.

In terms of MAJOR cities some of the more religious ones I've experienced are Charlotte, Richmond, Salt Lake City, and Oklahoma City.
DC isn't among the most religious but I definitely wouldn't say it's among the least religious either.
