Except some of the lunies in Baptist Bible-belt think Catholicism is one of the greatest evils in this world.

Fortunately, most Missouri Baptists have spent enough time around Catholics and Catholicism to appreciate and respect it. In Missouri we've really got the best of both worlds.

In the deep south a lot of people just haven't been around Catholicism and only know what their whacky pastors or parents tell them about it. I've heard some of the most absurd stereotypes which are always easily dispelled. Likewise, there are lots of Boston Catholics who think all evangelicals are stupid, povery-stricken yokels with a lot of faith and no intellect. The reality is that Christendom is far closer to unity than either group would have you believe.

More evidence that OKC is by far the most right wing and fundamentalist large city in the country.

News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports | Lawmaker's anti-gay comments attract attention

You might think its just a fringe congresswoman, but read all the replies and you will find more people agreeing with her than not. Most people disagreeing with her are not Oklahomans.

leave it to the a-team guy to turn a forum talking about religion into a forum talking about death metal music. I freakin love it. lol

I'm very surprised that fort wayne indiana, a.k.a. the city of churches, isn't on this list. We have more churches here then any other city it's size said a research study they did a couple years ago at purdue. Then again we also have more strip clubs so that might be why it's not on the list. lol

Oh by the way SEATTLE IS AWESOME NOT DREARY!!! lol

People who are sun-oriented would disagree with you on that last comment.

But, back on topic, I've gotten confused after reading the posts? Is this thread asking for the city with the highest number of Christians or Christian "fanatics"?

Oh, and Salt Lake City is the best place for people of faith. But the concept of this thread is one-sided. Christians aren't the only people of faith. There are other faiths, ya know.

I have to stand up for Christians and say that they are DEFINITELY NOT the only ones who are against gay marriages. They just seem to be the most vocal, and is the new thing to attack Christians as being backward. Personally, I have met a huuuuuuuuge number of agnostics, atheists, freemasons, and other non-Christian types who are fervently opposed to gay marriage and abortion. No one really seems to want to bring that up. Why, because as I said before it is the new thing to attack Christians.

I think southern cities are more religious. Cities like NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, DC, and Boston seem to be more about business/finance and politics than religion.
