Most Sinful Cities

Wow, what an article! Check out this artical by Forbes. They used the Seven Deadly Sins as alluded to in the Bible then: “For each sin we stretched our imagination to find a workable proxy–murder rates for wrath, per capita billionaires for avarice–then culled the available data sources to rank the cities.” Very interesting, especially with the graphic that allows you to see the trends based on regions as well (look at the south and gluttony). Makes me glad to live in Pittsburgh, The Most Livable City!

    The seven deadly sins, per se, are mentioned nowhere in the Bible. They were named by Pope Gregory much later and entered the public consciousness through Dante’s Inferno.

    Im so confused with RELIGION ???

  3. Thanks Don. While there is no where in the Bible where the traditional “seven deadly sins” are located or listed, they are all condemned in various parts, along with several others. I feel pretty confident in using “alluded” in the post above. Here’s some refrences: Gal 5:19-20; Prov 6:6-19.
