One Day All Seven Will Die

So, while GodSpam was on baby hiatus, the Pope apparently added seven more deadly sins to the existing list, which originated with Pope Gregory in the sixth century. For those of you who need a refresher course, those original seven sins are:


(Those last two are sometimes cited as Envy and Pride.)

And here's the new batch:

-Environmental pollution
-Genetic manipulation
-Accumulating excessive wealth
-Inflicting poverty
-Drug trafficking and consumption
-Morally debatable experiments
-Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

They just don't roll off the tongue as easily, do they?

Personally, I'm looking forward to the David Fincher-directed sequel Fourteen, in which Kevin Spacey smokes a joint and mixes up Brad Pitt's recyclables.

What's awesome is that you could kill a trust-fund hippie stoner blowing weed smoke in his dog's face and get every single one of the new sins in one blow -- also you'd probably get a slap on the back instead of an suspensful/ironic manhunt.

If I were an organization that promoted gay rights I would totally jump on the last new one by saying the church is committing a deadly sin by not allowing folks to marry who they love...Isn't it a fundamental right of human nature to love and be loved?
