New Sins

3

The Roman Catholic church has announced the new sins of our modern age. So, are you a sinner?

You are if you defile the environment. And you are if you support or engage in genetic engineering such as embryonic stem cell research. There’s a nice symmetry there. Sanctity of the Earth and sanctity of life. Of course, if you’re not Roman Catholic, you’re not obligated to conform to their standards of morality. Still, nice to see both major American political parties can point to the other as sinful. I’d hate for one party to have a monopoly on evil.
