Vatican blesses earth with further instructions

With much pomp and trepidation, The Vatican has been so good as to offer additional guidelines for living as they see that God sees fit. The new list, presumably overlooked in the original Seven Deadly Sins, deals largely with social issues.

I am still undecided on how I feel about this. It seems that the Holy See may have stumbled across some legitimate mankind-serving ideas here. But I suspect the Catholic church would be hard-pressed to absolve itself of sin #6

The New-and-Improved 7 Social 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

In deference to objectivity, this link offers a different perspective from sources perhaps closer to the Vatican.
