    Greed, because it usually involves someone taking advantage of the ignorance of others...The others are pretty much OK if behind closed doors..

    I'd say wrath, I don't usually beat the **** out of someone 'cause of lust.

    Re: Which is the Worst of the Seven Deadly Sins?

    Gluttony or Envy seem like the worst. Gluttony is the grossest and I feel that envy is unnecessary and in a broad way can cause the most trouble for people.

    My knee jerk reaction was "greed" but I think it'd be a tie between greed and pride. They all really feed off one another, don't they.
    I don't think pride (like self-respect) is bad. Now arrogance .......that's really really bad.

    Greed is really bad too. However some people think that if someone earns a lot money and doesn't want to pay higher taxes they are greedy. They have no idea what those people do in their personal lives with that money. Greed to me is wanting or taking things that you didn't earn but yet you think you deserve them. Like someone who walks into a party and scarfs down half a pizza without worrying if everyone got a piece.

    I chose "greed" since "the love of money is the root of all evil".

    Re: Which is the Worst of the Seven Deadly Sins?

    Pride. Of course, having pride in one's work, accomplishments, hobbies, children's achievements, etc. - those are healthy forms of pride.

    However, pride has it's other side; when pride reflects a person being self-centered without concern for others; when pride is driven by the sense that "I'm all that and you're not", and by the feeling that "the world should cater to me and only me"; the boastful and pompous soul who is actually a very empty person will very easily be caught up in the deadly sins listed.

    Gluttony - the prideful person believes that it's all for him; Barbtx gave a good example about the pizza being consumed without considering others who might like a slice.

    Lust - oh heck, even Jimmy Carter lusted in his heart. But lusting and letting it lead to action - pride again. When one does not considered the consequences to, let's say, having an affair, that's pride. "As long as I'm getting what I want, the hell with the feelings of the person I'm cheating on".

    Greed - again, the "more for me the better"; the need to have it all because it feeds an ego that really can't be satisfied.

    Sloth - "I'm too good to do that job, task, type of work, etc." The "I deserve to be taken care of because I'm either a victim of society or because my *** doesn't stink". Or both.

    Wrath: Why do people get angry? Because the world isn't catering to "my needs, my wants" and refuses to feed the high horse I'm riding on. The need to control - pride fits right in - "I know best and why can't anybody get that"????

    Envy: Same principle as wrath. Why is it that others have what I can't have - after all, I'm all that and deserve it more than you deserve it.

    I think pride drives every one of the other 6.
