The notion of Sunday mornings being "the most-segregated hour in America" may be longstanding.

But recent studies took this idea further and examined how those who attend church most often are least likely to ever have dated or married someone from another race.

Using data from the 2007 Baylor Religion Survey, Samuel Perry of the University of Chicago found that about 50 percent of those who attend church only once a year or never said they had dated a person of another race, whereas only 27 percent of those who attend church weekly or more said the same.
