Maine is the Least Religious State

The least religious state is becoming even less religious.

Data from the National Association of Religion Data Archives shows that only 367,043 Maine residents claim a religion. That’s only 27.6% of Maine’s population. That’s a drop of 9% from data collected back in 2000. Utah is the most religious state in the country with 79.1% of its population claiming a religion.

Philosophers believe Maine’s low religion score is due to the New England tradition of free thinking. They add Mainers tend to discover identity and meaning in relation to nature, and communities outside of traditional religious centers.

We can add this to the list of honors as being the oldest population in the country, and the whitest.
