Social and economic injustice is a sin,
says Catholic Church

Social and economic injustices are being called new areas of sinful behavior by the Vatican.

When asked to list the new areas of sinful behavior, Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti* mentioned the widening social and economic differences between the rich and the poor that "cause an unbearable social injustice."

Read the CNN report here.
* Girotti heads the Apostolic Penitentiary, a Vatican body that issues decisions on matters of conscience and grants absolutions.
