Despite its reputation, Colorado Springs has low church attendance
Just like our phony phresident.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs has a reputation of being the far west buckle of the Bible Belt. Statistics say otherwise: They suggest that Colorado Springs is surprisingly secular.

Never mind Focus on the Family and the new 7,500-seat worship center at New Life Church. Set aside the almost 400 churches that dot the city like freckles....

1. That sounds like Oregon
It's either the first or second least religious state in the country, but the majority of the people who ARE religious are fundamentalists or Mormons and have a disproportionate influence in politics.
