New Fodder for the Confessional?

i am guessing if we have all these new sins, we can't continue to use the expression, "old as sin." a bit from Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, "who heads the Apostolic Penitentiary, a Vatican body that issues decisions on matters of conscience and grants absolutions":

When asked to list the new areas of sinful behavior, Girotti denounced "certain violations of the fundamental rights of human nature through experiments, genetic manipulations."

He also mentioned drugs, which weaken the mind and obscure intelligence; pollution; as well as the widening social and economic differences between the rich and the poor that "cause an unbearable social injustice."

or can we?

i love the way this is taking a "here and now" slant. [and most folks think the Church is outdated! to that, i say ha!!]
