Nah, that's the most conservative part. O.C.is mostly megachurch -attending whites and some hispanics thrown in, ditto with SD. L.A. is the exception of course.

Well, I'd say NYC since there is so much diversity there. LA would be another good place for religious diversity, IMO. Minneapolis? Not so much. Lots of Lutherans and Catholics, a few other protestants. Large Hmong community but I don't know what religion they practice. Seattle is the most unchurched city in the US.

You can find religious demographics for every city and every county here:
The Association of Religion Data Archives | Maps & Reports | Select Report

These are from 2000, so it might be different now in some places.
