The Vatican Releases 7 New Sins

After 1,500 years the Vatican has released its list of the seven deadly sins for the 21st century.

The list comes as Pope Benedict XVI lashed out against the modern "secularized world" and its sensibilities when it comes to sin.

The new sins...
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"

Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti, the Vatican's number-two official for sins and penance, told L'Osservatore Romano that he saw bioethics as posing the greatest risks for the human soul.

Catholicism has two basic types of sin: Venial, which are relatively less important and forgivable, and mortal.
Mortal sin can include acts like abortion and murder, although the church doesn't keep a well-defined list.
Mortal sins can cause a person to go to Hell unless confessed to a priest, who then absolves the sinner in God's name.
