Today we have brought up with Insider Monkey’s latest article about the most religious cities in the US. As a matter of fact, it was the United States of America that founded a separated state from religion, forming the fist secular country in the human history.
At first, we should make clear what the difference is between a secular country and an irreligious country. In a secular country religion is present in the people’s lives, but it’s not the basis on which the country is governed. In other word, your religion is your business, and the government has nothing to do with it. While in an irreligious country, according to Insider Monkey, ” is that where most of the people either do not believe in religion, do not identify with any religion or religion does not play a major role in their lives”. And although the United States is a secular country, people are still remained religious. As a matter of fact, more than 75% of citizens believe in some kind of religion, which means more than 300 million people. 75% of people are Christian, several other religions represent themselves, such as Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, just to name the oldest ones of the human history. After the Christianity, the second biggest group is non-believers, such as agnostic, atheist people, etc with their 23% ot the total population. And although irreligion increases, it doesn’t mean that the power of Christianity would decline. As a matter of fact, the question and numbers of religions vary from state to state an city to cty.
And now, without a further ado, let’s check out what Insider Monkey has come up with. Fresno is on the ninth spot of the compilation. Actually, 81% of the whole population in Fresno identify themselves as irreligious.
