New and interesting ways to condem yourself to hell.

Listen to me or burn in hell, bitches!

Better think twice before tossing that candy wrapper on the ground. It may just earn you eternal damnation according to the Catholic Church.

You offend God not only by stealing, taking the Lord’s name in vain or coveting your neighbor’s wife, but also by wrecking the environment, carrying out morally debatable experiments that manipulate DNA or harm embryos,” said [Bishop Gianfranco] Girotti, who is responsible for the body that oversees confessions.

The seven social sins are:

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

Yeah, so also don’t use condoms, earn too much money, or do anything that the church isn’t sure quite how to link specifically to the bible as wrong, but that they just don’t really like very much. And also no fat chicks.

Thanks Boing Boing.
