new sins for 2008!

in case you didn't know, the Pope's in town.
In March, Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti listed seven "new" sins:

Environmental pollution
Genetic manipulation
Accumulating excessive wealth
Inflicting poverty
Drug trafficking and consumption
Morally debatable experiments
Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

do you think that girotti had a conference call with god to sort these out? were there others that almost made the list but weren't quite sinful enough? is having sex with a condom still a sin? really? is he sure that this isn't part of the updates for the new millennia that god apparently wants?
and, does the Vatican consider it's own wealth excessive? or, probably they 'need' all that money for the popemobile. gas prices are quite high...

my favorite part of tha article is this line "Girotti said the Catholic Church continued to be concerned by other sinful acts, including abortion and pedophilia."

I betcha there is an extra special HELL for drug traffickers who amass excessive wealth while inflicting poverty upon their addicts who are causing environmental pollution! Not to mention their morally debateable experiments in genetic manipulation! Wow. Sure glad the pope is on top of all of this. In the REAL world, isn't it a sin to NOT use birth control?
