Sexual immorality has spread like a disease and become like a poison. It has been eating away at the fabric of what the family is and the institution of marriage. You are almost persecuted now for not having sex and ridiculed for having and adhering to sexually pure morals.
    A certain amount of lust is needed to continue the species. Marriage is a man made institution and unnatural to the species.

    greed combined with sloth is a killer.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I vote for sloth.

    Sloth means the person is doing nothing to better his station nor that of anybody else. A leech on society.

    I think a certain amount of greed is not only good but needed to advance a society.

    If it wasn't for greed we wouldn't have many of the advancements that we have now.

    It is hard to be greedy if you aren't willing to lift a finger to do anything for yourself or anyone else.

    tell that to all those sponging off various entitlement programs who keep whining for more.

    that is the worst kind of greed.

    I can live with someone being greedy if they are willing to work for it.

    It's a rather ugly trait.
    You keep perceiving others' jealousy on this forum? Really?! I don't and I'm new.

    Examples?

    Pride.

    Pride goes before the fall as they say. If you are too proud and overconfident, you will make mistakes leading to your defeat.

    Dude - seriously? Sloth means laziness. Nothing to do with hygiene. For some, it should be.
