Secularism watch: Massachusetts vs. Utah.
From the Globe's hypothetical scenario — What if the U.S. looked more like "liberal Massachusetts"? — comes this choice bit of information:
But despite the Bay State's reputation for secularism, only a few more people would eschew religion altogether. In Massachusetts, 16 percent of poll respondents said that they belong to "no religion," only slightly above the national average of 14 percent (and below Utah's 17 per cent).
