So your country is ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood now. All I can say is; women had more freedom in the old days of the pharaohs.

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.

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.
