Photos: Why the hell didn't Colorado Springs top the ten most saintly U.S. cities list?
Earlier this year, a Gallup poll marked Boulder as one of the least religious cities in America -- a ranking that probably didn't startle a lot of folks. Secular devils!
In contrast, a new roster of the saintliest U.S. cities, as compiled by Movoto, contains a genuine surprise: Colorado Springs, most folks' pick for the most religious town, doesn't top the list -- and the burg that does strikes many as godless. Check out the photo-illustrated rankings below, complete with category breakdowns and a link to explain them.
Number 10: Irvine, California
Number 9: Long Beach, California
Number 7: Chandler, Arizona
Number 5: Chula Vista, California
Number 3: Fremont, California
Number 1: New York City
