has published data on how the states compare on weekly church attendance, which I am taking as a proxy for "godlessness" (i.e. the less likely you attend church weekly the more godless you are.) The most "godly" states are the usual suspects of Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. I'm sure Texas must be very upset that it's tied for tenth place with 39% of respondents saying they attend services weekly. It should be noted that even in Utah a bare majority say they go to church once a week.
