72 Delightfully Deadly Sins

 - Dec 11, 2008
Unlike venial sins which can be forgiven, like sinning on accident or otherwise unwittingly, the Catholic Church has a list of ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ that are considered unforgivable: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth (laziness), anger, pride, and envy.

Eva Mendes may fall into at least two deadly sin categories because she has no problem flaunting her body (pride) for money (greed). And she probably has caused others to sin in the areas of envy (wishing for a hot bod like hers) and lust (wanting to ‘do’ her). 

Government bailouts are a hot topic as of late, as are luxury items--both are perfect examples of green. When it comes to the sins of being slothful, gluttonous or angry, Trend Hunters have written plenty surrounding food, products for making life easier and even angry designs and protests. 

Even if you don’t agree with the Catholic Church’s list of ‘Seven Deadly Sins,’ topics surrounding them do make for some sinfully delightful and interesting reading. Enjoy!
