Last week’s Borderstan online opinion poll was, “Just Asking! What’s Your Religion (Or Not)?”

According to the poll results–which are completely unscientific and unreliable–readers of Borderstan.com are not very religious at all, especially when compared to the American public. A large number of respondents do not believe in God or a supreme being, or are not sure. Only 22% of respondents said they were Christian, an extremely low number in an overwhelmingly Christian U.S. population.

A whopping 53% are either Atheist (33%) or Agnostic (20%). If you add in Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (8%), the percentage of non-believers or those who are unsure (Agnostics) rises to 61%.

The percentage of those who profess belief in one of the so-called three religions of Abraham–Judaism, Christianity and Islam–totals just 34%. Other recognized faiths–Hinduism, Buddhism and Bahai–got 2% of readers’ votes. Spiritualist and Other garned 2% as well.
