But you have touched a nerve that has become inflamed among many Christians.
The likes of Rev. Jim Baker, Rev Jimmy Swaggert, Rev Ted Haggard and countless other so called Christians have made it clear that meeting someone who professes to be a Good Christian is no guarantee you are meeting someone who is a Good Person.
Maybe you should decide if you want to live in a safe neighborhood or in a Christian neighborhood. The two are not necessarily the same.
The word â€œbigotâ€™ is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary as:
n. One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.
Your sweet name conceals an attitude that could leave a very bad taste.
How sad it is that in 2007 you are trying to find a community in the United States that will tell you by certain faith based demographics you will be safe from people whose beliefs you don't approve of, even before you have an opportunity to get to know them. It's the root of all bigotry.
Are you old enough to remember the time when there were restrictive covenants in Title Deeds all across White America that prevented Jews, Blacks, and other "undesirables" from buying in certain neighborhoods?>
If you are looking for predominately Christian areas of Texas I suppose you would want to bring back protections for your neighborhood against those terrible non Christians.
But maybe I have misread your question. Maybe you are trying to stay away from the most Christian populated areas of Texas.
The 1995 Federal Fair Housing Act however likely prohits realtors from stearing you to one particular neighborhood or another.
Probably what you were trying to do is to find an area that holds similar beliefs to yours. Christians aren't the only ones by any means that have beliefs like this. I sure hope that my neighbor, whether they are Christian or Muslim believes in "thou shalt not kill".
It is difficult for agents because to answer your question we could be accused of "steering", in other words taking a client to an area that is highly one ethniticity or another. This would keep the areas that way in the long run and be a bad idea.
That being said part of the Aggie Creed here at Texas A&M, College Station is never to lie, cheat or steal!
Good luck finding a great place!

Being that the majority of Texans still consider themselves Christian then my short answer would be the place in Texas with the largest population is the most Christian-Populated area.
I thought about his needs and also about the Fair Housing Law. I gave him the phone number of two local Synagoges and told him that he could ask advice there and then call me back requesting specific nieghborhoods, but not only was I legaly prevented from giving him information like that but I really didn't know the answer.
I also don't know how you could truthfully know the answer to this question either. I would visit several comunities and see what you think. I would also visit churches.
