Grand Rapids – One of the Top 30 Most Sinful Cities in America … Neat?
While we have nothing on Las Vegas (obviously), Grand Rapids ranks pretty high in 3 of the 7 'deadly sins'.
Yep, you read that right. WalletHub has put out some interesting data that ranks the most sinful cities in America and Grand Rapids is 27 on the list. Detroit comes in at 22. I guess we can take solace in the fact that Toledo is in the top 20 at #18.
Here's the breakdown.
|Rank||City||WalletHub Vice Index||‘Anger & Hatred’ Rank||‘Jealousy’ Rank||‘Excesses & Vices’ Rank||‘Avarice’ Rank||‘Lust’ Rank||‘Vanity’ Rank||‘Laziness’ Rank|
|27||Grand Rapids, MI||46.91||6||146||34||105||31||18||83|
|116||Fort Wayne, IN||36.23||73||140||39||144||92||44||96|
Once again you can see the complete breakdown on WalletHub.
I don't get the anger ranking ... unless they are counting people behind the wheel and shoppers at Costco.
I also don't get the lust thing, then, I'm married and not on the singles scene. Excesses and Vices - I guess we do have a lot of bars / breweries.
On a personal note, I find it interesting that my hometown of Shreveport, LA is ranked higher than GR and Detroit, considering it's in the bible belt. Then ... there are like 7 casinos in that area.
