Now We’ve Got Fourteen Deadly Sins?!


Just when you think that maybe people are starting to get the point they go out and do THIS:

THE seven deadly sins have grown to at least 14 after the Vatican updated its 1400-year-old list of the worst moral failures to reflect the modern world.

The new deadly sins that may lead to eternal damnation are polluting, genetic engineering, being obscenely rich, drug dealing, abortion, pedophilia and causing social injustice, The Times newspaper has reported.

Quoting from Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, The Times reported that certain actions were so unholy that they needed to be deemed as “mortal sins” – not the less serious “venial sins”.

I understand and appreciate where they are coming from; some of these issues have been ignored by the church for a long time. But sending people to hell for using drugs? What’s that all about? This is all the world needs; some more religious laws? The old ones are working so well. Sheesh! (And about that new Obscenely Rich Sin – have they taken a look around the Papal Palace lately?)


C’mon boys. Here’s what you do;

First – either give away or lock up all of the 75,000 manuscripts and 1.1 million printed books in the Vatican library. Then go down into the basement, where you keep the Secret Vatican Archives and toss out those other 150,000 books. When that’s done go back upstairs, open up a Bible and read what Jesus had to say. It’s that simple. (You may have to borrow a Bible from that Protestant church on the other side of the wall – but for God’s sake don’t pick up any of their literature from the lobby! You’ll be right back to square one. )

That’s it. All finished. See you tomorrow. But remember; no… more… laws!

    “wa `Alaykum As-Salām”. Saifuddin, welcome.

    My piece is not exactly satirical nor am I really angry. I do become frustrated with religious leaders as well as religious people (having been, and somewhat still am, myself). I think we tend to miss the forest for the trees.

    As a follower of Jesus the Christ, I firmly believe that his way focused on the summation of all the law and the prophets; Love God with all your heart mind and soul and love others as you would have them love you. To focus on the sinfulness of specific actions is to miss the point that what resides in the heart must first be addressed. One can never be successful by attempting to change their habits if they don’t first try to change their nature.
