In the case of religion, we don't need interventionists (no apostrophe). What we need is for you to realize that we have found what works for us and shut the hell up with your babbling while at the same time acting like a creep.

While state listings are good, I think the discussion was on specific cities. Crime per capita would work best in that situation, if I'm not mistaken.

I noticed that GA is waaaay down the list. But I am not surprised. After all, we are in the gun totin' Bible belt.

I don't think so. I just think that person would then be on his list of people to interview in case he gets to decide which virgins he wants.

One of the most interesting studies that you can do and their correlations is the most religious and how they compare. Just search for the "10 wosre states...." on just about any subject.

The one that I found most interesting is 10 Worst States For Women.

There is a pattern if one looks for it.

Example...Southern states make up most of the top 10 religious...not surprising. But they also make up a good percentage of most other surveys such as worse states for women's health care, lowest in education, economy, highest in guns, etc etc.

On one site (which I can't find again) they referred to the Gun Belt...most of the states being the same as the Bible Belt.

While there was some variation in the lists there were a handful that seemed to make every list.

there is no love where there is no justice.
justice is the ultimate form of righteousness. dharma is the LAW. the LAW OF ONE. karma is the action. samsara/moksha is the result.
If justice is drowning a whole planet full of people, I'll take my chances with an entity that has the intellect to make people the way she wants them the first time and doesn't have to commit wholesale genocide.

You play and pay in the here and now. If we get another try, it will be based on how we lived this life and how much we learned. That is the only justice that can truly be justice.

There is no justice with a maniacal God-being that just kills people off or tortures them for eternity for something so small as a thought but allows serial killers into paradise because he says,'Ooops! I made a mistake and I'm sorry.' to the God being instead of all those he hurt while in this life.

The idea of substitutional atonement is abhorrent and any book that teaches that it is not only acceptable, but desirable is horrific.

I just ran across this and thought people would be interested in where their states fell.

There was not a good list for posting the cities with out doing a lot of retyping I can tell you...Atlanta made the top 25...but not in a good way. I did however...I believe...post a link to one site that gave the cities...if not I will try and find it again.

I never turn down recipes, still working on my kitchen skills so easy is best at the moment. I am truly loving the new range! I think its safe for now, but thank you for the advice as well as any recipes you send my way.

Good evening everyone.I haven't been here in some time but HEAH AH IZ AGIN,LOL.
I stopped in to tell you guys if there be any Christians here that since we just had a day celebrating M L KING Jr's birthday that he was a heretic and did not believe in the resurrection of Christ nor did he believe that Christ was the son of God nor did he believe in the virgin birth.It's in some of the papers he wrote.
http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Wolves/mlk_jr-...
Any Christain that learns this about King should have a really big problem with this man that called himself a Baptist minister.He was nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing. Read the link I posted above to learn the truth about ML KING.
I'm not worried about his theology, but I am impressed with what Martin Luther King DID. There's a mural paying tribute to him in the city here called 'I Have a Dream'.

The sad thing is they've had a "no guns" policy up until a year or so ago that did nothing to curb gun violence. The bad guys still brought guns into D.C. and used them.
