More stuff you can’t do
You always knew it was bad to stuff your face full of donuts while peeking through windows to watch that hot Mrs. Loudermilk next door getting ready for her bath. You knew it was bad to sit around in your underwear, hating yourself because you don’t have an in-ground pool like that bastard Snodgrass next door, too. You knew because the list of seven deadly sins was always there like an instruction manual to guide you into wholesome living.
It’s unreasonable, some of it, but you always got by. You found loopholes around the deadly sins and rigid commandments and you still have a good shot at a heavenly reward. But don’t count on the Catholic church to help you along. Those cosmic babysitters have declared that you can do even better. Want to snort coke off the hood of the Lexus you worked so hard for? Don’t do it, mister. There are new commandments in town and they demand that you neither do drugs nor become wealthy enough to do them in such fanciful fashion.
For those of you scoring at home, there are now 14 deadly sins you are required to avoid. Frankly, I think it would be easier for someone to tell us what we can do rather than what we can’t.
• Genetic modification
• Carrying out experiments on humans
• Polluting the environment
• Causing social injustice
