These are the Seven Sins which we know, and which the Catholic Church recognized and are to be confessed if a man/woman seek forgiveness. Check out Tartan's coverage of the original Seven Sins: Here


But in 2008 a new [modernized] seven sins were announced by the Vatican which are of the greatest danger to human civilization in our times, these sins are:

:: Environmental pollution
:: Genetic Manipulation
:: Accumulating excessive wealth
:: Inflicting Poverty
:: Drug trafficking and Consumption
:: Morally debatable experiments
:: Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

The new mortal sins were listed by Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti at the end of a week-long training seminar in Rome for priests, aimed at encouraging a revival of the practice of confession.

These lists contain movies that focus heavily on these sins, showing us that these vices are not only prevalent, but a key focus of our popular culture! Maybe the Vatican is onto something.

Wealth has always been frowned upon by the Christian church, Jesus himself asked all his disciples to ditch their belongings in order to follow him. Our spiritual connection to God can get clouded by the desire to accumulate trappings, and we can find ourself worshipping our goods over our God. It is a well known fact that "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than it is for a rich man to get into heaven".

Carlito's Way really showed the spiral into greed real well.

I like these lists!

Any of the "Brewster's Millions" - the Richard Pryor version is my favorite... and speaking of Pryor - "The Toy"
