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.
