Anyone know where Sam sourced this information for Letter to a Christian Nation?  I’ve lent out all copies and need to answer a challenge out there on this.  Thanks in advance.

I’m more interested in why he uses the argument in the first place?  Most serious crimes take place in cities, last time I checked there aren’t too many “Red” mayors in crime infested cities.

Maybe reading Phil Zuckerman’s book Societies Without Gods will help your intellectual curiosity.  He has more substantial findings using data from whole nations.
