I expect Texas to be on all embarrassing lists. At least we’ll always have Bush. In your face Utah! http://workman.blogspot.com workman I guess it’s just nice to be considered Christian sometimes. Now if you were to take a poll in Texas, they would probably say Utah leads the nation in baby-eating. http://woodlayson.blogspot.com woodlayson Being from Alabama myself, I thought it was interesting that the AL-LA-MS cluster of Southern states were numbers 4,5, and 6 respectively on the list of adherents, but they didn’t even make the top 10 list of members. Makes me want to do a study on the hypothesis that Southerners have an aversion to formal membership. Jen When I saw this, I knew immediately that RI would be in the top three. Approximately 64% of the population is Catholic. However, what is interesting is that RI is a solid blue state. We even voted out our very liberal Sen. Chafee (R) (who voted against the war) to help get the Senate majority. Not sure about Education funding, but I went through the public school system there and although it had it’s problems, I think I got a good education (sex ed and evolution included). http://www.lismitchell.net PixelFish Heh, Pete, besides me, I know at least five or six of my personal friends who can also claim the same. I’d be interested in a recent census–that one is seventeen years old. http://www.flickr.com/photos/72feetabovesealevel/ michael LOL @ Greg! http://www.jenjennyjennifer.typepad.com Jen “I wonder what these states’ education funding was in 1990??” Where Utah is concerned the answer is, “not enough!” Yet we still refuse to pass a head tax,,, hmmmm, wonder why? Oh yeah, people breed like rabbits and don’t want to pay for their kids’ education. Yeah, I’m not bitter about the subject.
