why is it that the "South" is the area where many people still are regular church goers?

how compares to other areas of the country? (Btw, is Texas considered "The South" too? why or how about Oklahoma? what about Nebraska? or where ends?)

Update:

WHY  though?

    Evangelical Christianity is fairly simple and straightforward, not asking much of the faithful, so it's relatively simple to practice.

    The South is usually described as Below the Mason-Dixon line. 

    Which is the Pennsylvania/Maryland border.

    Because southern white churches make it ok to hate people different from you.  Not very Christ like, but it's been their successful business model for 250 years.  https://www.npr.org/2020/07/01/883115867/white-sup...

    The South is probably the most religious area, but the midwest is not far behind.  The least religious ares are the Northeast and West Coasts.

    South and out in the sticks would be the most common places today, yes. Is all about the money.
