New Sins, For Those Of You With Scorecards

The original seven deadly sins, in case some of you slackers need a refresher, are:

  1. Pride
  2. Envy
  3. Gluttony
  4. Lust <-- My favourite ;)
  5. Anger
  6. Greed
  7. Sloth

The new seven "social" sins added on are:

  1. "Bioethical" violations such as birth control
  2. "Morally dubious"’ experiments such as stem cell research
  3. Drug abuse
  4. Polluting the environment
  5. Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor
  6. Excessive wealth
  7. Creating poverty

One and two are a can of worms. Have fun with that, debaters! Three and four are good advice. Five through seven are good too, but a little redundant; aren’t all three saying the same thing?

And I’ll note that, once again, "kicking puppies" has still not made it on the list. Come on Mr. The Pope! We know that all dogs go to heaven, but that shouldn’t be an excuse anymore! :)
