Proving that the Archbishop of Canterbury does not have a monopoly on stupid ideas,  Mgr Gianfranco Girotti, a senior adviser to the Pope, has come up with an updated list of the seven deadly sins: genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy, and taking drugs.

Junksmith prefers the Telegraph's take:

Allow us to suggest our own list of Seven Vices Best Avoided in Ecclesiastical Pronouncements: prissiness, moralising, over-familiarity, self-righteousness, babyishness, cant and, above all, banality.
