That is, if you excessively pollute.
The full list is:
- Environmental pollution
- Genetic manipulation
- Accumulating excessive wealth
- Inflicting poverty
- Drug trafficking and consumption
- Morally debatable experiments
- Violation of fundamental rights of human nature
According to the BBC News article, “in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, Archbishop Girotti said he thought the most dangerous areas for committing new types of sins lay in the fields of bio-ethics and ecology.”
Catholic or not, it is hard to deny that the fact that the Vatican is getting involved in environmental causes speaks loudly to the current worldwide concern for the future of the planet.
What do you think about pollution being seen as a deadly sin? Should the Catholic church weigh in on this topic or stick to matters of religion?
