Seven Deadly Sins: How Does Maine & New Hampshire Rank
Can you name the seven deadly sins? They are pride, greed, lust, envy (jealousy), gluttony, wrath (anger and hatred) and laziness. Everyone has at least one vice, even though I've met several people who deny it. Most Americans love to eat, drink, smoke, gamble, etc. Pick the poison, and you'll find an abundance of it in our nation.
America's vices can result in staggering economic costs, according to WalletHub. For example, the report tells us that gambling costs the United States approximately $5 billion per year. Smoking takes a major toll on the U.S., resulting in damages exceeding $300 billion per year.
WalletHub's research team took a look at all 50 states to compare them across 43 key indicators of immorality. They looked at factors such as highest rates of gambling addiction, most excessive drinking, most thefts, and most violent crimes per capita.
Here's how Maine and New Hampshire ranked, with 1 being the most sinful state and 50 being the least sinful state:
46th – Anger and Hatred
