George Bush: sinner

Recently, the Vatican has made some announcements that I was none too happy about.

But now?

Polluting the environment, and becoming ridiculously wealthy while doing so, are two of the new deadly sins unveiled by the Vatican.

Aiming to update morality for modern times, the Pope’s top lieutenant on matters of sin and penance, Bishop Gianfranco Girotti, promulgated the new list of capital vices over the weekend.

The new list is designed to make the faithful take into account how their lives impact others in a globalized world.

Of course, had I stopped reading there I could have given a brownie point to the church. But some of the other sins on the list make me detract a few: “‘Bioethical’ violations such as birth control” and “‘Morally dubious’ experiments such as stem cell research,” aren’t helpful. So let’s see… you’re a sinner if you use birth control, but you could die from contracting STIs, including HIV/AIDS, without it. (Brings a whole new meaning to “damned if you do, damned if you don’t.)
