Seven Deadly Sins 2.0

Catholic church gets silly:
People who don't pick up their dogs' addition to the environment in the park may be risking more than a fine - they may be putting their souls at risk of damnation, according to a new Vatican list of seven deadly sins for the 21st century.

As the seven ancient wonders of the world were matched by seven modern wonders, the seven deadly sins have been given a modern version for a globalised world, announced by a Vatican official yesterday.

Polluting, genetic engineering, obscene riches, taking drugs, abortion, pedophilia and causing social injustice join the original seven deadly sins defined by Pope Gregory the Great in the sixth century: pride, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and sloth.

I've always wondered about the original seven deadly sins. Gluttony? Sloth? Seems like pretty thin stuff to be putting a soul in hell for eternity over. Now I guess add 'not recycling' to the list.
