Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life just put out the results of an interesting study that find Ohio falls right about in the middle when it comes to having a religious population. (ht)
About 55% of Ohioans say religion is very important in their lives – which is just under the national average of 56%.
Mississippi tops the list with 82%. Alaska, N.H. and Vermont fall at the bottom with around 36%.
More evidence that Ohio is a pretty moderate, middle-of-the-road state and as long as the Ohio GOP keeps embracing wingnutty ideologues like Michelle Bachmann and pushing their candidates toward hard-right, socially unjust platforms they are going to keep losing elections.
