A colleague pointed out an article on the BBC website about the catholic church's naming of new mortal sins.

Added to the 7 deadlies are...

Environmental pollution
Genetic manipulation
Accumulating excessive wealth
Inflicting poverty
Drug trafficking and consumption
Morally debatable experiments
Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

There has to be a great lesson activity in there, asking young people to draw up their own list, exploring their rationale and thinking about what might matter most to a creator God.
