Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The reputation of Colorado Springs is skewed similarly to Cambridge.

Obviously we have the headquarters of a bunch of Christofascist organizations, and a lot of people have serious cases of religion, and there is a little church in every strip mall, but, surprisingly, by their own rating system the city is considered "unchurched."

The reason is the climate. Everybody is so focused on hiking and rafting and walking their dogs and blasting around in their SUVs and going to coffee shops that there is not a lot of energy left over for church. It is easy to simply avoid the whole thing.

It is nothing compared to the South, where the tacit assumption is that everybody is a Southern Baptist.
