Compare this map with the others and notice how it confirms what we already knew to be true. The more religious (i.e., Christian) regions are more charitable and tend to vote for more conservative candidates. Puts the lie to the liberal accusation that conservatives don't care about the poor. Conservatives are generous when it comes to spending their own money, but stingy with other people's money (taxes). Liberals are generous with other people's money, but stingy with their own.
