Sin 2.0

I have found that many people find the notion of sin terribly confusing.  Many of us still operate with antiquated notions of sin that can prove problematic while at the same time accepting other actions as acceptible that are in fact, quite sinful.

So to bring a bit of clarity to the issue of sin, we join WYNC’s Brian Lehrer and his quest, Vatican correspondent John Allen Jr to discuss the topic of sin and the new social sins “released” not too long ago.  I have no doubt that you will find Brian questions and John’s answer incredibly helpful, informative and entertaining.

In response to the many questions by callers and Brian, John Allen explains how the Vatican determines these sort of changes, the difference between individual and social as well as mortal and venial sins.  John also explains indulgences and the reasons behind the new categories of social sin and rebuts callers objections to commonly disputed “sins” such as birth control.
