State of Georgia (MGN Online)

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) Although we're in the middle of the Bible Belt, a new survey says Georgia is the fifth most sinful state in the U.S.

The survey ranked all 50 states and considered such "ranks" as Anger & Hatred, Jealousy, Excesses and Vices, Greed, Lust, Vanity and Laziness.

Georgia actually ranked first overall in jealousy. The state also made the top 10 in lust and finished just out of the top 10 in vanity and laziness.

Most sinful is evident when one finds that Georgia has the highest incident per capita of HIV and the 3 highest in that group in Georgia is black women, followed by Hispanic women, followed by black men


And the way it has been going with the influx of "Blue Staters", Georgia will soon be the most hatefilled state in the union
