The seven social sins are:

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

The original deadly sins:

1. Pride

2. Envy

3. Gluttony

4. Lust

5. Anger

6. Greed

7. Sloth

Take your pick, the new and old sins sound alot like the sin of ‘self’ idolizing something other than God.

I think we could stick any of the old sins right up next to any of the new sins, whatcha think?
