Today, Al Mohler summarizes a new Forbes study which ranks US cities in terms of their sinfulness. Since I plan on planting a church in the Queen City this summer, I was interested to discover two areas where Cincinnati ranks as particularly transgressive.
In terms of murders, Cincinnati ranks #7, with 28.8 murders per 100,000 people. Certainly, this is no small contributing factor to the gentrification effort currently underway in Cincinnati’s most crime riddled neighborhood, Over the Rhine. In the last ten years or so, city planners have performed a major surgical strike in the downtown area by clearing out one of the country’s largest public housing projects and have replaced it with multi-income housing. Whether this is a good or bad thing remains to be seen, but that’s where I plan on living.
Cincinnati is also a steaming and sizzling lust engine, ranking #8 as the most lustful. Forbes analyzed the sales of contraceptives and other “sex items” and found that Cincinnatians do enjoy their sexual exploits and prove it financially.
My current city of residence, Louisville, KY, is the 6th most prideful, measured in terms of plastic surgery. It is also the 6th most lazy. That’s enough for now, I’m going back to bed.
