Sin to Win: Michigan Places in the Top 10 ‘Most Sinful States in America’ Report
Pride, envy gluttony, lust, anger, greed and sloth: Michigan is well-versed in the seven deadly sins.
Although Michigan didn't rank in the top 5 of any rank behaviors, but we had enough variety of venal offenses to place 9th overall in a study of the Most Sinful States in America.
Using the 7 deadly sins as a model, WalletHub used 43 metrics to compare the 50 states across seven key dimensions: 1) Anger & Hatred, 2) Jealousy, 3) Excesses & Vices, 4) Greed, 5) Lust, 6) Vanity and 7) Laziness.

Breaking the categories down, here's how Michigan ranked in each category:
- #10- Anger & Hatred
- #6- Jealousy
- #22- Excesses & Vices
- #42- Greed
- #27- Lust
- #14- Vanity
- #15- Laziniess
So, it would seem Michigan is quite generous and does not have a gambling problem, but is saddled with jealousy fueling theft and fraud with a very (un)healthy dose of anger, hatred, vanity and sloth for good measure.
It may be time for a long look in the mirror, Michigan.
