Mississippi holds onto its title as most religious U.S. state, with 58 percent of its residents saying they are very religious, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday (Feb. 13).

The least religious state? Vermont.

About 40 percent of Americans said they were "very religious," meaning religion is an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or nearly every week. Some 31 percent indicated they were nonreligious, or that religion wasn't an important part of their daily life and they seldom or never attend such services.

Top 10 most religious states

Mississippi: 58 percent are very religious
Utah: 56 percent
Alabama: 56 percent
Louisiana: 53 percent
Arkansas: 52 percent
South Carolina: 52 percent
Tennessee: 50 percent
North Carolina: 50 percent
Georgia: 48 percent
Oklahoma: 48 percent

Bottom 10 (least religious states)

Vermont: 19 percent are very religious
New Hampshire: 23 percent
Maine: 24 percent
Massachusetts: 27 percent
Oregon: 29 percent
Rhode Island: 29 percent
District of Columbia: 30 percent
Washington (tie): 31 percent
Connecticut (tie): 31 percent
Alaska (tie): 31 percent
Hawaii (tie): 31 percent

I never would have though Mississippi would be number 1. With all of the racial hatred that went on there.

Huh? Most of the racial hatred organizations distort religion and use it as one of their main reasons to be racist.

Are you serious? Bigotry and religion are two sides of the same coin.

I love blanket statements like these.
Bigotry and athiesm are two sides of the same coin.
Athiests are biggoted against religion.

I'm an Atheist and I have nothing against any religion. I know people of all faiths and have always respected their religious beliefs.

I'm sure you do. Just as there are religious people who have nothing against athiests.
Hence why I opened with "I love blanket statements like these".
Perhaps I should have put a "/s" at the end of my post to show how stupid blanket statements like those are.

Using this logic Utah has to be a very racist state as well as they came in 2nd.

It's sad that "most religious" directly correlates to "least tolerant" / "most bigoted", especially when religion tries to claim the moral highground.
