Fun Maps

Paul Smith links to this illuminating introduction to the religious geography of America. It uses the typical county by county map we've come to expect from the red vs. blue political scene and applies the same methodology to religious views. This passage must really annoy Paul though:
The Catholics, Episcopalians, Orthodox and German Lutherans — members of denominations that Luebke called "ritualistic" — tended to join the Democratic Party, he said.
Unfortunately the piece spends a lot more time covering Methodists and Presbyterians than they do Baptists.
