Polluting the Earth and genetic modification are two of the new mortal sins announced by the Vatican. Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, a Vatican spokesperson, reportedly said that the old sins – sloth, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and pride – had a “rather individualistic dimension”. The new list apparently serves to illustrate how people’s vices have an effect on others as well.

The seven deadly sins for our times are: genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy and taking drugs.
