Yeah, the article is about Southern Baptists, but the map is fascinating. Southern Baptists are second only to Roman Catholics — and not far behind them, either — in the number of counties in which they are the largest religious group.

Mainline church leaders may struggle to grasp this, but the most ethnically diverse churches in America are found in these three bodies — the Roman Catholic Church, the Assemblies of God and, yes, the Southern Baptist Convention.
