Religiously Unaffiliated in MIddle Tennessee

This week the Tennessean ran a story about religious affiliation in Middle Tennessee. While the Nashville area is the "buckle of the Bible belt," even in this very religious part of the country many people do not profess a particular religious affiliation. For example, 41.7% of Davidson Co residents are not affiliated with any religious group, and that figure climbs to 61.6% in Rutherford Co and 66.6% in Cheatham Co. There is lots of work to do.
