Bust a move

What are your thoughts about the new "social sins" issued by the Vatican?

I'm still working my way through the hardcore seven.

1. "Bioethical" violations such as birth control
2. "Morally dubious'' experiments such as stem cell research
3. Drug abuse
4. Polluting the environment
5. Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor
6. Excessive wealth
7. Creating poverty

My favorite newbie: "contributing to widening divide between rich and poor" - social inequalities that sociologists talk about everyday.

I think that the Vatican would do better by issuing a list of social opportunities. The word "sins" is too old, too outdated.

However, the list can be easily improved:

1. Social irresponsibility such as unprotected sex.
2. Fail to tackle or oppose to opportunities for humankind such as stem cell research.
3. Encourage drug abuse.
4. Neglect to decrease polluting the environment when its viable.
5. Be a sloth for society
6. Excessive greed
7. Create poverty to one's advantatge
