Welcome back to regular contests! This is contest 5, which will run for 2 weeks. For the first week, your topic is:


Superbia, avaritia, luxuria, invidia, gula, ira, acedia. Most of us are familiar with the seven deadly sins as developed by Catholicism. Most of us are also familiar with the idea that there are other sins, as well - often considered less terrible by the Catholic Church for various reasons. There is some widespread debate as to what exactly is a sin, and some people wonder if sinning is really such a bad thing, or if it's just part of being human. Even non-Christians will tell me that certain things are sins, though I'm not quite sure what the atheists think will happen to me if I sin. Maybe your characters can let me know!
