Around the Bradenton/Sarasota area of course with Bradenton being moreso than SRQ?

I think if your comparing with Tampa/St Pete, they seem a bit more conservative and less tollerant of differences out this way and a bit more bible belt oriented. This is how it seems to me, but I figure Id ask. I consider myself agnostic/atheist and I just notice its a bit more christian here. Not necessary even strictly southern christian, I mean with the midwest ppl who move here too it seems it.
Like I go to Goodwill and shop or Salvation army and I see T shirts more often that have church names on them or activities in the church + I get the vibe many of the older daytime thrift store shoppers are older and possibly christian. Thoughts?

I noticed it in Lakeland, but not here. Maybe a little more conservative in Bradenton. Sarasota is actually pretty liberal, with a lot of "New Age" religions, etc.

If someone thinks there are too many christians in an area and wants to live in a more 'diversified' community, they can always move to places like New York City or Dearbornistan MI.

Venice and the unincorporated parts of Sarasota are very Christian/conservative.....IMO. Lots of Catholics and Baptists.

LOL at "Dearbornistan MI." i grew up in the detroit area and my friend there tells me "horror stories" about the middle east invasion. i would strongly urge those christians here who want to establish a national religion, to beware. one day, christianity will be the minority religion and then we will all be forced by law to bow to mecca thrice daily. but don't blame me, i'm a devout atheist....

I see it the most in Venice due to the large elderly population. I feel Sarasota is definitely a mix of religious, non religious & everything in between. I'm in the non religious camp & I enjoy the environment in SRQ. It's definitely more liberal, relaxed & open minded.

Well, I will jump in. Being a born again Christian and living here most of my life. I find there are alot of Christians here in this area. We will continually be pushed underground ( by the politically incorrect crowd) But we are not going anywhere. Bring up CHRISTS name to a neighbor and see what they say.

Oh, so if someone doesn't agree with your christian views they are politically incorrect?! Yup, I was waiting on a post like this...
