American Vice:  Mapping The 7 Deadly Sins

We’re gluttons for infographics, and a team at Kansas State just served up a feast: maps of sin created by plotting per-capita stats on things like theft (envy) and STDs (lust). Christian clergy, likely noting the Bible Belt’s status as Wrath Central, question the “science.” Valid point—or maybe it’s just the pride talking.

You can link to the site, but these few are interesting:

envy

Envy
Total thefts (robbery, burglary, larceny, and grand theft auto) per capita.

wrath

Wrath
Number of violent crimes (murder, assault, and rape) per capita.

lust

Lust
Number of STD cases reported per capita.

pride

Pride
Aggregate of the other six offenses—because pride is the root of all sin.

So…The Bible Belt and sin.  What would Jebus think?
