Las Vegas has built a trillion-dollar economy around being sin city. But once you look past the gambling, the booze, the strippers direct to your room, and the shame of wanting to see Criss Angel, is it really that sinful?
The real estate blog Movoto.com decided to figure out the real sinful cities in the U.S. And when all the numbers were in, Vegas only came in tenth.
For the study, they used one statistic corresponding to each of the seven deadly sins. For lust, strip clubs per capita; for pride, cosmetic surgeons per capita; for wrath, violent crime rates; for envy, theft rates.
For greed, percentage of income donated to charity; for gluttony, obesity rates; and for sloth, physical inactivity rates.
And after all that, St. Louis turned out to be the most sinful city in the U.S.
The rest of the top 10 are:
Orlando, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Miami, Buffalo, Detroit, and then Las Vegas.
