HOUSTON, TX – It used to be that Houston was one of the predominant cities in the Bible Belt, but according to a recent survey conducted by the American Bible Society, it looks like our city has fallen a little short of holiness.
Our rivalry with Dallas and San Antonio continues as they pull out into the lead on this one. Our city, Houston ranked 39th on the list of 96 cities, Dallas came in 27th and San Antonio at 33rd place. Hey, at least we beat out Austin at 48th and Waco at 59th.
The most Bible minded city in America was good ‘ole Knoxville, TN followed by Shreveport, LA and Chattanooga, TN.
Anyway, as one of the major melting pots in America, we take in a lot of different cultures and with those cultures come different religious views. If you think of it that way, it’s easy to see why Houston wouldn’t be higher up on the list.
