                Self-ID answers. Some people simply chose "Christian." Here's a similar ethnicity map from census data where one of the choices is "American." (From the distribution, it looks like these are Scots-Irish who are embarrassed.)

                Good question why "Christians" tend to be centered in Indiana and southern Ohio, though. Maybe there was some sort of denominational weirdness there, where say two flavors split and a third group didn't accept the split and just started calling themselves vanilla "Christian" in protest. Anybody know?

                    My first thought was "Christian, non-denomination" I grew up in one of the catholic Indiana counties. We have 2 catholic churches in the whole county. But in the biggest town of about 9-10k people, there is one catholic church but at least 3 chrisitan non-denomination churches. Just an intersesting tid bit of info: Ft Wayne, IN at one point had at least 4 catholic churches within a few square blocks of each other in downtown Ft Wayne (Cathedral, St Marys, St Particks and St Pauls). St Pauls closed and was bought by another denomination but the other 3 are still used.

                      Johnstown, PA went through a gut-wrenching church consolidation like this about 4 years ago. There were four churches in the diocese, all within a couple blocks of each other, each catering to a specific national origin (Slovak-Czech, Polish-Lithuanian, German, Irish). Like everywhere else, the congregations have shrunk and aged to the point where three of the churches had to be closed. It was the equivalent of the March of Tears -- there was everything from friendly rivalry to active dislike between congregations and now they all had to use the same building (plus their priests became redundant in the downsizing).

                      There used to be an incredible infrastructure of Catholic churches, schools, and charitable organizations running through the Rust Belt, but it's quickly becoming as extinct as teaching classical languages in high school. Very sad, particularly to someone raised Catholic, even if it didn't take. They were a Force for Good, both in the values they instilled and the focused intellectual life they (sometimes forcibly) fostered.

                        Why We Fight

                        Remember when we defended the "moral equivalent of our Founding Fathers" Kuwaitis in GW1? About that:

                        KUWAIT: A female political activist and former parliamentary candidate has recommended the introduction of legislation to legalize the provision of enslaved female concubines for Muslim men in Kuwait in a bid, she says, to protect those men from committing adultery or corruption.

                        The activist, Salwa Al-Mutairi, suggested apparently seriously in a video broadcast online that she had been informed by some clerics that affluent Muslim men who fear being seduced or tempted into immoral behavior by the beauty of their female servants, or even of those servants 'casting spells' on them, would be better to purchase women from an 'enslaved maid' agency for sexual purposes.
                        It has to be a joke, right?

                        R-right?

                          What? Thomas Jefferson had slaves, seems like the Kuwaiti's are just fitting that description as well as they know how.

                                If only.

                                KABUL, AFGHANISTAN—In what officials said was the "only way" to move on from what has become a "sad and unpleasant" situation, all 100,000 U.S. military and intelligence personnel crept out of their barracks in the dead of night Sunday and quietly slipped out of Afghanistan.

                                U.S. commanders explained their sudden pullout in a short, handwritten note left behind at Bagram Airfield, their largest base of operations in the country.

                                "By the time you read this, we will be gone," the note to the nation of Afghanistan read in part. "We regret any pain this may cause you, but this was something we needed to do. We couldn't go on like this forever."
