Diversity: We don't have too much religious diversity - mainly Catholics, Christians, and Mormons, but I have seen a Muslim or two and heard of a few Buddhists. Many churches here are usually segregated into ethnic/racial backgrounds since people immigrate from all over the world and not all of them speak English. Most people regardless of their religious background are accepting of the people who aren't heterosexual, despite their church not accepting it. But, there are a good number of churches that actually accepts lgbt couples into their congregation.
