Funny bit on local news.

Don't tell this lady what is sinful.

A reporter asked a Catholic woman outside of her parish church what she thought of the so-called "new seven deadly sins" the Vatican came out with this week. With a hint of exasperation, she answered, "You would think with all that is going on in the world they would have better things to worry about. How about inclusiveness..." I can't remember what else she said, if anything, but I got the impression she watches a lot of Oprah shows.

The "new" seven deadlies:

"Genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy and taking drugs are all mortal sins." - News report.

  1. Inclusiveness should be one of the 21st Century Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

    Sharing, Inclusiveness, Tolerance, Recycling, Energy Footprint Conservation, Carbon Dioxide Reduction and Environmentalism

  2. What about Oprah. Shouldn't "Oprah" be considered both a sin as well as a verb meaning self-absorption or pompous @ss?
