Se7en

The Catholic Church has released seven new mortal sins. I have a word limit, I have no comment on two of them, so in High Fidelity style, I question just five:
  1. Accumulating excessive wealth - Perhaps we could also remove tax breaks for historic institutions that accumulated excessive wealth in earlier generations?
  2. Genetic manipulation - it may be god's will to inflict hereditary disease upon the next generation and to encourage deaths from cancer, but maybe we should work to prevent it?
  3. Drug trafficking and consumption - not sure what coffee traders and pharmacists would think of this?
  4. Morally debatable experiments - well surely we should morally debate experiments?
  5. Violation of fundamental rights of human nature - are those the fundamental rights espoused in common sense and the age of reason?
Welcome to Sin City.

Ref no. 5 - this from an institution that has been responsible for a vast amount of child abuse?

As V!shy would say Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.
