    If being willfully ignorant isn't a sin against the Lord who created them in His image, everything's fair game and they might as well cop to being basically heathen unbelievers.

    This atheist's 2c. I'm appalled at the cynical self-destruction that is being perpetrated by so-called followers of Christ.

    •  The reason the seven "deadly sins" are called that (5+ / 0-)

      is because they are self-destructive. Organized religion assumes the behaviors are intentional. I'm not so sure.
      Wrath, greed, gluttony,sloth,envy, pride and lust may just be basic instincts gone haywire because self-control is either missing or has been over-ridden. If self-control is missing, is it genetic or the consequence of disease? Is it just that we're not bothered when obsessive/compulsive behavior is self-centered, so we ignore it?

      We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
