    Vatican lists new sins, including pollution?

    "Thou shall not pollute the Earth. Thou shall beware genetic manipulation. Modern times bring with them modern sins. So the Vatican has told the faithful that they should be aware of "new" sins such as causing environmental blight."

    "The guidance came at the weekend when Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti, the Vatican's number two man in the sometimes murky area of sins and penance, spoke of modern evils. When asked what he believed were today's "new sins," he told the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano that the greatest danger zone for the modern soul was the largely uncharted world of bioethics.The Vatican opposes stem cell research that involves destruction of embryos and has warned against the prospect of human cloning."

    "Girotti, in an interview headlined "New Forms of Social Sin," also listed "ecological" offences as modern evils. Furthermore, in recent months, Pope Benedict has made several strong appeals for the protection of the environment, saying issues such as climate change had become gravely important for the entire human race."

    "Girotti, who is number two in the Vatican "Apostolic Penitentiary," which deals with matter of conscience, also listed drug trafficking and social and economic injustices as modern sins.But Girotti also bemoaned that fewer and fewer Catholics go to confession at all. He pointed to a study by Milan's Catholic University that showed that up to 60 percent of Catholic faithful in Italy stopped going to confession."

    Summary:

    The Vatican has come out with a new list of sins that consist of humans that contribute to pollution, genetic manipulation such as cloning, and social and economic injustices, apparently having something to do with the amount of people going to Confession.

    So how big of an impact do you think this will make on people who are religious or society as a whole? Will anything change at all? Will anybody change their way of living to adjust to these new "sins"? I think not.

    Pollution is the beginning of a waste into the atmosphere making it impossible to make life on earth possible to sustain.

    Pollution harms the Earth’s environment and its people in many ways. Land pollution is pollution of the Earth’s natural land surface by industrial, commercial, domestic and agricultural activities. Some of the main contributions to land pollution are deforestation, construction debris, industrial factories etc. Air pollution is the accumulation of harmful substances into the atmosphere that danger human life and other living matter on the earth. The number one way to prevent air pollution is to walk or bike more and drive less. This will prevent fossil fuels from further polluting the air

    Re: Vatican lists new sins, including pollution?

    Since who gave the Vatican the right and the power to create sins and officially embed them in religion? I didnt see a miracle or hear of anything from god himself. Total BS, Vatican City should not be allowed to do anything, whole place is a joke. How about making molestation of young boys within churches and all that shit a sin?
