The list du jour comes from the editors of Men’s Health magazine, who for some reason decided to rank “America's Most Religious Cities,” as if that has something to do with health, good or bad.
They factored in houses of the holy — churches, synagogues, mosques, and the like — per capita, the numbers of religious organizations — that could be a bit nebulous — and the number of volunteers who support them, glad tithings in the form of monetary donations, and the amount spent on religious books.
The Houston Heathens, and what a great name for a minor league hockey team, placed 22; and just by way of a dual-suburb, Arlington is No. 42, but that’s probably because of the number of people who curse during Cowboys games.
The place with the most piety in the country? Why, Colorado Springs, Colo., of course.
Let us pray, Dallas. C'mon, we need to improve that ranking.
