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.

Morally Debatable Experiments are experiments which skirt on the edge of 'playing God'. The Church particularly find any experiment debatably which acts to change life or humanity from the way in which God intended. Recent experiments which have faced condemnation from the church include Stem Cell research and cloning.
