    If you had to choose only one, which of the 7 sins is the worst, in your opinion? Why?

    Which is worst? The more relevant question is which is the most fun. If I have to be damned for a sin I'll at least enjoy committing, it'll have to be lust. Yeah...that's the ticket!

    Since it's limited to the sins of a religion I'll have to go with Wrath. After all, was it not the cause of most wars? The wrath of not following MY religion.

    Perhaps an 8th sin should be added. It would be "Digital"

    All of them combined.
    That would be pretty bad.
    An extremely fat rich banker with stuffed food in his mouth that is really proud of his looks, that spends his hours sitting on his couch counting his money while lusting the girls he sees on TV and been secretly jealous of their men which likes to curse outloud and plan torturous methods of homicide.

    I'm afraid it's hard to deal in absolutes with this one. They're all classified as "DEADLY" sins, so they're all potentially the same. I can think of many scenarios in which each one is worse than the others ... but then I start daydreaming about it and smiling, probably not a good activity. Think I'll get back to planning the darkroom before the bad karma catches up with me.

    Actually the worst sin you have left off the list, and it is open rebellion against GOD, herein classified as self assertion in opposition to the will of Michael and the plans of the Universal Father. It was the downfall of Lucifer.

    These are sins? I've always thought the seven deadly sins were:

    Blown Highlights
    Plugged Shadows
    Muddy Midtones
    Excessive Flare
    Excessive Grain
    Infrared
    Holga Pictures

    That's akin to asking, "What's worse - ignorance or apathy?" I don't know and I don't care.

    The original list sounds remarkably like what I call "Friday night"!

    Sorry, too slothful to vote... (Damn, that makes me mad!)
