Here’s Why South Carolina Made The Top Most Sinful States List
Here’s why South Carolina made the top most sinful states list. Living in South Carolina, I must say I was shocked. How in the world did my sweet southern state make the naughty list? I’m going to go ahead and say this is not Clover, South Carolina’s fault. I might blame you Myrtle Beach. I’m kidding, I love the grand strand.
WalletHub has just come out with their ten most sinful states list. And South Carolina came in at number 6. Well, that is a reputable list maker so it must be true, right? Here’s why South Carolina made the top list of the most sinful states list. There were 55 key indicators. And those included jealousy, greed, lust, vices and illicit behavior. Oh my.
Every state has it’s own vices of course. For example, New Mexico reportedly has the worst drug problem and here’s a shocker. Nevada reportedly has the most gambling addicts in the nation. WalletHub’s data range from violent crimes per capita to excessive drinking to illicit behavior. According to their site and their data analyst Cassandra Happe, “Although residents of every states have wonderful qualities, people across the nation have their own moral struggles. At the individual level harmful behavior may only impact a few people, but when a higher share of a state’s population engages it diminishes the overall quality of life”.
Now before you folks in North Carolina get to feeling all superior about not making the list. The fact is, the Tar Heel State comes in at #14.
