Gallup released a nationwide poll this week that shows the states with the 10 least religious metro-areas voted for Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, while nine of the 10 most religious metro-areas were in states that went to Republican Mitt Romney.
The polling firm interviewed by phone 244,917 Americans aged 18 and older in 189 metropolitan areas, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, between Jan. 2 and Dec. 29, 2012, CNS News reported.
The 10 “most religious” metro areas are in:
Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Utah.
The 10 “least religious” metro areas are in:
California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin
It is undeniable that these results accurately reflect the secular-progressive views of the far-left, which now dominates the Democratic Party.
In his book, “Culture Warrior,” Fox News political commentator Bill O’Reilly described the secular-progressive movement as “committed forces … that want to dramatically change America, molding it in the image of Western Europe.”
These forces are hostile to Christianity and traditional American values and have engaged in a culture war with conservatives, according to O’Reilly.
As we celebrate Easter this year, we see Christianity being persecuted more today than at any time in our nation’s history. In the latest example, an Alabama elementary school stopped using the word Easter to describe its egg hunt so as not to “offend” anyone, according to news reports.
Similar actions are seen in the ongoing “war on Christmas,” in a country where 83 percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians, according to an ABC News/Beliefnet poll.
