The pope has just released the new Seven Deadly Sin, and they are… (can you hear the sound of drums)…
- Bioethical violations (birth control?)
- Morally dubious experiments (stem cell research, genetic manipulation)
- Drub abuse
- Polluting the environment
- Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor
- Excessive wealth
- Creating poverty
They are really trying hard to be the new “hip” church, with the polluting the environment and “contributing to widening divide between rich and poor”.
There is no clear numbers how much assets the catholic church has (they are not big on visibility into there organization) but the common number is that they have assets worth at least 100 Billion Dollars. Let me repeat that 100 BILLION DOLLARS is there assets, should that be the “Excessive wealth” sin and I think it also has some affect on the “Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor” and “Creating poverty”.
How about instead of having “bioethical violations” they should just switch it to ethical violations or is that sin too difficult for them to keep, I mean with all the crazy priests around.
I suggestion for the Catholic Church they should start following a old proverbs and that is:
Don’t throw rocks if you live in a glass house!
I would give the catholic church a “D-” for effort, I mean they just broke 3 of the 7 deadly sins that we know about!
Update: I just realized that the Sins nr 1 and 2 is not really the strong suite of the Catholic Church either, last time the Church entered into science (to try to tell people what is right and wrong) a few people got burnt alive, does Bruno or Galileo ring any bells? You know the guys that suggested that the EARTH revolves around the Sun (it does you know), so in this case I think the Church has lost it’s speaking privileges when it comes to science. It’s at least good that currently the Catholic Church don’t have that much firewood!
