Should the Vatican have listed YA R&S use as a "new sin"?
Or does it fall under some old guidelines under cavorting with sinners?

This is not a list of new sins.
Again the media has either misinterpreted or purposely blown out of proportion a story involving the Church.
The latest case is the interview a Vatican official gave to the Vatican newspaper on the social impact of sin in a globalized society.
Here are some of the "headlines":
+ “Vatican introduces more ways to sin“
+ “Seven More Sins, Thanks to Vatican“
+ “New sins as bad as the old sins — Vatican official“
+ “Vatican Updates Its Thou-Shalt-Not List“
+ “Recycle or go to Hell, warns Vatican”
This whole outlook assumes that there is a list of sins we can look up, besides the Ten Commandments or the seven deadly sins.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church does not even have a list of sins, although it does have an index of covered subjects.
For the real story, see: Social effects of sin greater than ever, says Vatican official: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/08013...
For more information on the media misreporting this story, please see:
With love in Christ.

I almost laughed out loud when I heard that "genetic modification" was one of the "new sins". Genetic modification has been occurring naturally since the dawn of life. And if the genetic modification takes away an inherited illness, is that a sin? The Vatican needs to catch up... to the 18th Century.

If you're not catholic, I fail to see why you're concerned about what the pope says. I am amazed to see so many non-catholics upset over the "new sins" -- if you're not catholic, then you obviously don't believe what they do, and the new or old sins have no impact on you.

I think it goes with "Sloth"
It's so slothful, I haven't been able to do any of the other slothful things I usually do, like take a nap or read comic books....

I would like it falls into the addiction category myself. You know the whole "not in excess" thing.Source(s): Should be writing a sociology paper but is hanging out here instead. I am so damn sad.

I guess so. Proverbs 10:19
When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, But he who restrains his lips is wise.
