ultra religious

A study from 2013

A study from Gallup Polling found religiousness across the U.S. in 2013 remained similar to previous years. With 61% of its residents classified as very religious, Mississippi held on to its position as the most religious state.

% of Population With Bachelor’s Degrees or Higher: 20.4%

Mississippi is the state of a bygone era. Prior to the Civil War, Mississippi’s agricultural economy — and reliance on slave labor — made it the fifth wealthiest state in the country. However currently it is near the bottom in most economic and educational measures. Mississippi residents received $2.02 in federal spending for every dollar they paid in taxes. The state has the highest poverty rate in the country at 20.1%.

  1. I am aware there are lots of opera addons that help deal with saving pictures, but what I is specifically looking meant for is, one that can allow me personally to simply paste the picture link but it will surely download the picture from that link.. Reason being, the photos I was saving is certainly has their particular own individual link but not on the same page itself..
