STUDY: Our area among least "Bible-Minded" in America

While Bible Quizzers are certainly "Bible-minded", it appears we're not in the majority in the area.  According to a new study, local cities are among the least "Bible-minded" in the country.

The American Bible Society has partnered with The Barna Group to identify America’s most “Bible-minded” cities, based on "highest combined levels of regular Bible reading and belief in the Bible’s accuracy."
[T]he least Bible-minded cities:
#10. Buffalo, N.Y.
#9. Cedar Rapids, Iowa
#8. Phoenix, Ariz.
#7. San Francisco
#6. Boston, Mass.
#5. Hartford/New Haven, Conn.#4. Portland, Maine
#3. Burlington, Vt.
#2. Albany, N.Y.
#1. Providence, R.I./ New Bedford, Mass.
