Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Religion Map:
Interesting...NYT had an interesting feature this week on shifting trends in religious affiliation as well: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/25/us/25cnd-religion.html

Did this map only include Christian based religions? No Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, etc???

You can certainly see the Bible Belt, the Mormons spreading out of Utah, Garrison Keeler's Lutherans in Minnesota, and the preponderance of Roman Catholics across the rest of the country. I guess the Episcopalians, long the American establishment, are dwindling and shown here on the side as Anglican.
I think the Times article on shifting religious affiliations said that 1 in 10 Americans is an ex-Catholic.
In Oregon, I'd sure like to have a big enough version to read the numbers in those "other" counties. That red county in the center of the state (Jeffeerson)includes the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, I wonder if that's related to the Baptist tilt?
There are other maps showing Jews and Muslims on this website. I expect Buddhists, Hindu, etc were too small to map.
Annother chance to plug one of my favorite books, A New Religious America and the affiliated Pluralism Project at Harvard --
