Dear Poll: What Is the Worst Sin of All?

The women of The View were chatting yesterday morning about a new Vatican study which states that men and women sin differently. According to the research, men are most prone to lust, gluttony, and sloth, while women are more prone to pride, envy, and anger. These findings actually make sense to me, but since we've probably experienced all of these sins once or twice before, tell me, which do you think is the worst sin of all?

I went with Envy. I don't really care much how people live their lives as long as its what they want. I don't have to agree. But people who are envious of others; jealous of others; tend to be petty and gossipy, and I don't like that at all.

With me... its vanity In general its Lust... Lust for sex lust for people with wandering eyes lust for money Lust for someone or thing who is someone elses... i think the word lust should be used in more than the sexual way!

That's a tough one, but I chose greed. It seems like many of the problems we have today are due to greed. The economy,war, robbery, murder (over or for $/things)- that's just for starters.

I think if we're joking and making light of these "deadly" sins then greed because it can bring on outrageous amounts of other problems. Greed could be seen as the root of a lot of the world's problems.

they're all natural feelings that everybody experiences, but i'd have to say i'm least tolerant of lust.

As long as they affect others, it's the worst one ever. It does not matter their effect on the individual level because if a trait is affecting only yourself then you allow it to affect yourself which is unforgiven. However, it is much worse if your trait affects others surrounding you or in the same society with you.

probably greed or anger - both can result in violence. but in reality, I think they're probably all equal, except lust or sloth, hehe. Like anything though, taken in excess they're ALL damaging. I think betrayal should be up there.

Greed - seems to me that it's part of the other "deadly" sins, too.

I think sloth is the worst... People who do absolutly nothing and are lazy beyong belief are wasting their lives- which to me is the biggest sin of all

Pride can actually serve as the catalyst to all of the sins; so, yeah, Pride is the worst one.

Greed, right up there with envy and wrath.

I feel the evils of greed can be seen all around us right now. From CEOs of failing banks giving themselves huge bonuses to desolate places where you see the greed of a government hoarding money and resources to detriment of their own citizens who are starving and dying right on their door step. It's all disgusting and that's why I picked that one, but let's not kid ourselves in thinking one isn't as bad as the other one.

Greed. I think people who screw others over just for material things such as money is beyond horrible.

I said greed. Because of it, our economy is in it's worst shape ever, and innocent taxpaying people just trying to make ends meet are having to pick up the tab for the greedy, not just shady mortgage lenders and Ponzi schemers, but even those homeowners who wanted more house than they could afford. They have some responsibility as well. I'm pissed that because I am responsible with my finances, I have to bail out those that were unresponsible and/or greedy.

I agree with omilawd, pride is the root of the others. They're all bad, but if I had to mark one as the worst, it would be pride because it can lead to the other sins.

Wrath, greed, and envy are the worst to me.

Wrath out of control can lead to harming someone else. Other than that- all of these can hurt someone else to some degree I suppose.

When will the gender wars end? Men and women sin differently? These sins are just as equally bad, and can lead to death either way. Don't fool yourself. But supposedly pride was the first sin, but regardless, sin is sin and it will cause death. After all: "The Wages of Sin is Death." Happy camping kids.
