Well, this is not the way to get a little recognition if you ask me but hey such is life. Texas was named the third most sinful state. And if this makes you feel any better, according to Wallet Hub, each of the 50 states has its vice that makes it not so perfect, so there's that. 

For example, New Mexico has the worst drug problem, and of course, Nevada has the most people with a gambling addiction, which helped them become the #1 most sinful state.

How did Texas rank among the seven deadly sins? Texas ranked #1 in lust, #6 in vanity, #12 in jealousy, #24 in laziness, #29 in greed, #30 in anger, and #37 in excesses.

Here is how the top 10 goes:

  1. Nevada
  2. California
  3. Texas
  4. Florida
  5. Louisiana
  6. Tennessee
  7. Pennsylvania
  8. Georgia
  9. South Carolina
  10. Illinois
