As an atheist living in Mississippi, you've long suspected it. Now you have proof. Our state really is #1. Mississippi is the most religious state in the U.S. According to a recent Gallup survey, when asked about the importance of religion in one's daily life, Mississippi came out on top, beating all other states. Take that, Alabama!

This survey tells me that our goal of providing information and resources for atheists in Mississippi is vital. Atheists in our state are not just surrounded by Christians, we are surrounded by the sort of Christians which are rare in some parts of the U.S., those who take their delusion quite seriously indeed.
