The Eighth Sin

Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

I don’t believe in sin or sins. That’s a stupid fucking concept. Idiots who want to preach at you and frown at you made up these so called sins. Rubbish! What about rape? How about murder? Disloyalty? Subjugation? Slavery or owning slaves?

Lust is a sin. Fuck you, I will lust after life, sex and food/drink if I want to. I don’t care what you think. Lusting for something is good, means you want it and you will try and achieve it. Lust makes you achieve. And there is nothing wrong with it. Pride – why not have pride in your work, your achievements, the achievements of your loved ones? Screw sins! Wrath – yeah the actions of so many people is worthy of your and mine wrath! Shut up about wrath!

Sloth – what did that poor animal do? Envy, a sin? My foot, it’s ok to be envious, maybe you might try and gain the same for yourself. Ok gluttony and greed I can buy. Not sins though. It’s part of being human. And it’s ok. Rape is not. Racism is not. Oppressing women or any section of society is not. Shut up about so called sins.
