The 7 Deadly Sins

on June 2, 2009

Why is it that the deadly sin of GREED is the only one that seems to get all the attention, as in “those GREEDY Wall Street people who ripped us off” (the stock market is a gamble, don’t forget, but don’t let FACTS get in the way of a good lynching).

But what about ENVY? Isn’t socialism based on people being envious of those people who have things that others do not?

What about SLOTH? Doesn’t socialism give rewards to people who do nothing?

We can’t pick one Deadly Sin and act like it is the only one.

By the way, there are no laws that deal with greed, envy or sloth, but there are consequences to them.
