    What are the most and least religious states? Do Americans feel it’s morally acceptable to gamble? What’s more important, the environment or economic growth? All this and more this week on NewsWorks Tonight’s What Are We Thinking? segment.
    This week’s topics: 

    Gallup is out with its update on the most religious and the least religious of the 50 states. Mississippi is the most religious and Vermont is the least religious state…where to PA, DE and NJ fit in?  Which of these is the least religious?
    Billion dollar Revel Casino opens in Atlantic City, bringing up the topic of gambling. How many Americans think it is not morally acceptable to gamble?
    Focus on Global Warming – new, annual update.  Are more and more Americans continuing to deny that global warming has taken place?
    How does Global Warming fit in to the list of all possible environmental concerns? For many years, Americans said that the environment should take precedence over economic growth. No longer. Americans now say it’s ok to hurt the environment if necessary for economic growth.
