Seven Deadly Sins

sevend deadly sins

Is all over the news by now, the "Seven Deadly Sins" are supposedly going to change. Let me remind you that Pope Gregory I was the first to name the "seven deadly sins": Superbia, Avaritia, Luxuria, Invidia, Gula, Ira, Acedia. 15 centuries after, it seems that the Vatican now wants to change from this seven sins for others. These are "human sins": people will allways have the tendency to these things.

Now, despite a lot of newspapers and websites telling that Vatican wants to change the deadly sins, that is far from truth. If you read them all and cross-reference stories, you'll see that the only thing that happened is that the Vatican considers "new stuff" of sins: but the "list of sins" is infinite, we're not talking about "deadly sins" here.

News should be that the Vatican consider "polluting, genetic engeneering, being obscenely rich, taking drugs, carrying out experiments on humans, abortion, causing social injustice and pedophilia" sins, not that they're ditching the old "deadly sins" list.
