Defining Sin

Some things for reflection in my continuing search for what is true, what is right and what is best for a good life

With all the attention paid to keeping our bodies free from pesticides, toxins, free radicals, slim, trim and looking good so we can feel good, why is so little attention paid to the harmful effects of pornography?

The Bishop of the Catholic Archdioceses of Arlington, Paul Loverde, has and writes  Bought With a Price, a pastoral letter giving guidance to Christians on the grave offense that is pornography.

Via the Anchoress who cuts to the chase with A great definition of sin.

comes this excerpt  from Happy Catholic

“There’s no grays, only white that’s got grubby. I’m surprised you don’t know that. And sin, young man, is when you treat people as things. Including yourself. That’s what sin is.

The quoted excerpt is from a book, Carpe Jugulum,  the 23rd in a series, by Terri Pratchett, a writer I never heard of, but who has quite a following, a "juggernaut procession" according to Amazon's review.
