St. Louis Tops List of ‘Most Sinful Cities’

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A real estate blog has placed St. Louis at the top of its “10 Most Sinful Cities in America.”

St. Louis beat out Orlando, FL, Minneapolis, MN and Pittsburgh, PA on the list. Notoriously sinful Las Vegas, NV came in at number ten.

The bloggers used the seven deadly Biblical sins as a guide for their work.

A city’s lust was measured by the number of strip clubs per capita, its pride by the number of cosmetic surgeons per capita. Wrath was measured by violent crime, envy by thefts, and greed by the percentage of disposable income given to charity by the average citizen each year.

Obesity rates were used in the measurement of gluttony and percentages of physically inactive residents were used to determine sloth.

St. Louis didn’t top the list in any single category but ranked second in the “wrath” and “envy” categories and third in sloth.
