    The two Lutheran counties in southeast Texas must be where they make Shiner Bock. 8)

    Freaky how Missouri is almost solid Baptist, while Kansas is mostly either Methodist or Catholic with a few Lutheran and Mennonite counties. Given Kansas' reputation for zeal, that's not the result I expected.

    Looking at the map, I think you're right. That's right about where Shiner is.

    "Click here for a bigger view"? Yeah, I've fallen for that one before. I think I'll stick with what I've got right here. Thanks, though.

    I'm trying to figure out how Montgomery and Tuscaloosa (I think) counties are Christian and Methodist, not Baptist.

    Kansas has lots of unaffiliated "bible churches," usually evangelical, sometimes fundamentalist and/or Pentecostal. Lots and lots of people whose families were traditionally Lutheran or Catholic now go to those churches. If you grouped those independent churches together, they'd likely be the majority in many Kansas counties.

    I don't see the concentration of followers of Horny and BBJ that one would expect near Tahoe.
