Australians World's Worst Sinners

A British research team has ranked Australians #1 for sin; Australians are the most likely to sin, according to the team. The researchers used a point-based system to determine which countries were the worst offenders of the Biblical "Seven Deadly Sins" - pride, covetousness, envy, gluttony, anger, sloth, and lust. The country received 10 points for placing first in a category, nine for placing second, and so on. The breakdown follows:
  • Lust: South Korea
  • Gluttony: U.S.
  • Greed: Mexico
  • Sloth: Iceland
  • Pride: Iceland
  • Wrath: South Africa
  • Envy: Australia
Experts criticize the system, pointing-out its many flaws included counting the number of sick days people took-off from work, as compared to the number of hours worked per week, and that the study focused on men instead of both sexes equally.
