Get Thee Behind Me, Satan 

I consider myself a "social" sinner, as opposed to a hardcore one. You know... the occasional inappropriate thought or uncharitable reaction to my fellow man. It's not like I kill or covet thy neighbor's wife, for Christ's sake.

Thanks to the Vatican, I'll have to reconsider my personal catechism.
Bishop Gianfranco Girotti, the regent of the Apostolic Penitentiary at the Vatican, has put together a list of seven “social sins," which includes excessive wealth and polluting the environment.
