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.

In modern times 'Human rights' have come to be seen as an innate or intrinsic value. The violation of human rights involves any act which impedes the 'basic rights' to which all humans deserve. Example of human rights are the right to life, liberty, freedom of expression, equality and social, cultural and economic rights, including the right to participate in culture, the right to food, the right to work, and the right to education. Typical human rights violations are that of slavery and trafficking.
