America's Most Sinful Cities?

I recently read an "interesting" special report from titled "America's Most Sinful Cities." The FORBES editorial and research staff used the seven deadly sins from the Bible as a basis for their study (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride).

Click here for the entire report

Forbes defined their "own" criteria for the seven categories and for most, only researched the top 40-50 largest city areas (Metropolitan Statistical Area).

The Top Five Most Sinful Cities (my cumulative ranking from the 7 "sinful" sub-categories):

1. Memphis, TN
2. San Antonio, TX
3. Detroit, MI
4. Seattle, WA
5. Salt Lake City, UT

Others topping the list: San Jose, CA; San Francisco, CA; Denver, CO; New Orleans, LA

Columbia, SC was not in the MSA top 50 cities, so was not included in any sub-category rankings. Columbia is a GREAT place to live!
