new sins for the new millennium

  • I see in the G & M this morning, that the Pope has issued some new deadly sins.  Well maybe not deadly, but they’re way up there.  To quote the Vatican, “If yesterday sin had a rather individualistic dimension, today it has a weight, a resonance, that’s especially social, rather than individual.” 
  • So here they are :

  • pollution of the earth
  • violations of the basic rights of human nature through genetic manipulation

  • drugs that weaken the mind and cloud intelligence
  • the imbalance between the rich and the poor

  • I can’t disagree with any of those…. though I think Marx might want to make a comment about “the opiate of the masses”… discuss
