MEMPHIS, Tenn. — They say there’s a church on every corner in Memphis, but personal finance site WalletHub has released a list of over 180 cities ranked by 37 key indicators of evil deeds, and Memphis ranks at number 10.

According to WalletHub, in order to determine the most sinful cities, they used seven different metrics across 182 US cities. They focused on: 1. Anger & Hate, 2. Jealousy, 3. Excesses and Vices, 4. Greed, 5. Lust, 6. Vanity, 7. Laziness.

American sins are not created, nor distributed, equally. To best identify the darkest corners of America, WalletHub used 37 key indicators of evil deeds by comparing more than 180 U.S. cities.

No surprise, “Sin City” Las Vegas is ranked No. 1, but St. Louis coming in second may be a shock to some. Memphis ranked in between Chicago and Cleveland, and the “Big Easy” New Orleans was No. 18.
