The Vatican’s New Sins

leave a comment »

My Vatican correspondent sends along news that the the Catholic Church has a list of seven new deadly sins deemed more appropriate for this age of globalization. It sounds like a McSweeney’s setup, but like most crazy things you hear about the Catholic Church it’s 100% true. Wikipedia has your bullet points:

* Environmental pollution
* Genetic manipulation
* Accumulating excessive wealth
* Inflicting poverty
* Drug trafficking and consumption
* Morally debatable experiments
* Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

Be good.
