The 7 Deadly Sins for the 21st Century

Scott on March 12, 2008 at 2:13 pm

I guess everything needs an update from time to time: cars get model upgrades, actors and actresses get botox, etc. Now it’s the Catholic Church’s turn. Behold the new 7 Deadly Sins for the 21st Century:

- Genetic Modification

- Experiments on Humans

- Pollution

- Causing Social Injustice

- Causing Poverty

- Taking Drugs

- Obscene Wealth

These join the oldies but goodies from the past:

- Envy

- Pride

- Gluttony

- Lust

- Anger

- Greed

- Sloth

Since I am here, I would like to put out my own list of 7 Deadly Sins as well:

- Power Hungriness (I know, “hungriness” isn’t a word, but it’s my list so back off)

- Taking Oneself too Seriously

- Lack of Perspective

- Making Self-Assumptions

- Stupidity

- Selfishness

- No Sense of Humor

I can’t think about the 7 Deadly Sins without thinking of the original version of Bedazzled with Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Funny stuff! (the movie, not the sins)
