There was an interesting map moving around the internet, ultimately gleaned from the US census of 2010 that showed the 2nd most-spoken language beyond Spanish in the United States; it was diaried here as well (if someone will provide the link, I'll include it.) Now, we have a by-state map of the 2nd most prevalent religion being followed in the US:
Some interesting observations from the map:
Islam has a heavy prevalence in the East and Central US, but particularly in the South!
Judaism is tops in the Northeast as might be expected, but also is the 2nd-highest followed in a few non-obvious central US states.
South Carolina: Haven for Baha'i!
Hinduism is tops (besides Christianity) in Arizona.
Buddhism has the most land mass out of any of them!
Thought this was interesting enough to share with the community. Happy Sunday, everyone.
