  1. This research may surprise some people, but not those who have been to the web page on my site where I have been collecting such information and graphs for years.
    Generally speaking, in contrast to all the God and morality talk, the more conservative states are, the worse their stats tend to be; and vice-versa. See http://LiberalsLikeJesus.Org/graphs.html... .

  2. Except, Reverend Dubuque, the charts argue exactly the opposite. The "cool states" (i.e., those in blue) are less affected by the 7 deadly sins, tend to be more religious/conservative. California and Washington(certainly liberal) and Florida (often liberal) tend toward more sins, yet so do Georgia and South Carolina. I don't think you can make any clear statement about liberal or conservatives being more prone to bad stats.

    All you can say, with any certainty is that "all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
