The Vatican released a list of new sins for the 21st Century. These do not take the place of the old standards, but add onto it. The new ones are:
- Environmental pollution
- Genetic manipulation
- Accumulating excessive wealth
- Inflicting poverty
- Drug trafficking and consumption
- Morally debatable experiments
- Violation of fundamental rights of human nature
Okay, some of these are just common sense as bad. Numbers 3, 4, 5 and 7 are blatantly so. I don't think that numbers 1 and 2 are good, but sins? Sometimes humans need to be the experiment. Trust me, I would jump at the chance to be a test subject if there was a chance that my kidney problems would go away!
Then there is number 6 - Becoming Obscenely Wealthy. Isn't that what the Catholic Church is known for? They have more money than....Sorry I can't type it!
To top that, there is a report that the Papal Visit to DC in April is going to cost upwards of $3 Million. How is that for obscene wealth!
