What's with the triple-digit heat? Well, a survey conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life finds Californians are a little closer to hell than the rest of the country:
Californians are less likely than other Americans to consider religion "very important" in their lives or to be "absolutely certain" in their belief in God.
Californians pray less than others in many parts of the country. They are less inclined to take the word of God literally. And they are ready to embrace "more than one true way" of interpreting their religious teachings.
