New sins

The Vatican Has brought out some new modern moral sins.

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

hands up if you have broken any of these?

anyway this is all to do with a drop in the amount of attendants to confession or the Sacrament of Penance! So rather than convince people that they need to work on what they are aware off the system would seek to intorduce new sins, you may not have been aware you were committing, and asking you to confess them.

It would be an interesting study to find out if this brings in new confessors or if this means those who do go to confession, now go for twice the sin!

I kinda prefer the old ones.
it is good to see the vatican so concerned with these issues, the environment, injustice, poverty, power, moral issues and human rights.
Although I cannot see Brad Pitt and Morgan freeman making seven two around this new set of sins.

Maggie dawn pointed out this helpful diagram for those unsure on the original rules.

well thats that cleared up.
