Which cities are least influenced by theists? Where in the US can science be taught in science classes, where Jesus isn't thrown into the fray of office politics, where politicians don't believe our constitution needs God in it, where going to church is a matter of personal preference instead of a matter of social class?

And to make this interesting, let's not talk about Seattle.

Philly! This place is a spiritual vacuum! It's even almost caused Me to lose my faith!

There is a disturbing lack of secular cities in safe geographical locations.

Mainly core cities. Although Portland's secularism is....wow....strong. I know Portland's 'burbs are much more church-attending....but when you mix that with Multnomah County it's still pretty secular.

And Boston's suburbs are also pretty secular.

Its not about the City-Its about the individual. You can be surrounded by Wiccans and Devil Worshippers(I know, its not the same thing) and still be devoutly Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist etc.

Heck even being Wiccan or Satanic requires a bit of faith.
