I was talking to the pope just there now (bastard owes me money)
and he kept trying to change the subject and gave me a list of 7 new deadly sins, he didn't tell me if they are replacing the old ones or if these are additional sins because I had just nutted him and told him to have the wodge ready by friday or he's getting his knees done
anyway, NEW SINS!!!!!!!!!
1. ``Bioethical' violations such as birth control
2. ``Morally dubious'' experiments such as stem cell research
3. Drug abuse
4. Polluting the environment
5. Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor
6. Excessive wealth
7. Creating poverty
a few points, I'm not sure if I like these new ones, they're not exactly in touch with "the common man" are they? I mean, I've been guilty of all 7 old sins and at this moment am currently guilty of at least 5, but these new ones? Maybe 3 on a busy day. You average punter isn't going to be able to perform "morally dubious" experiments are they?
other points, what right does a celibate man have to tell people not to practice birth control? surely celibacy is the ULTIMATE birth control?
aren't 5,6 and 7 more or less the same thing?
excessive wealth is a sin? this coming from a man who lives in a gold fucking house?
what exactly constitutes drug "abuse" ? what about tobacco and booze? communion wine?
anyways, what would you chose to be new sins for the new millenium?
I'd nominate "phoning call centres while on speaker phone" "adverts that pretend to have real people but they're actually actors" and "being a stupid wanker"
