Thanks for posting these!!!
Is the Sin of Sodom, HOMOSEXUALITY???
This sin is often overlooked
IMHO, this sin is something that regular Catholics and Bishops are encouraging on a wide scale by supporting illegal immigration.
In my area Mexican laborers are being exploited by landscaping companies, cleaning companies, construction companies, etc. Many of these companies do not pay overtime rates because they can get away with it because they know the illegal is not going to complain to authorities about it.
This is an enormous sin.
They are, IMHO, blasphemous.
Very good point ... labourers who are here legally can have recourse to the courts if they are being denied just compensation for their work. Illegals cannot. Our immigration laws need BOTH to be reformed and to be enforced.
Oppression of the poor—
1. The situation in Bell, CA, where the city administrator and other officials had their own little fiefdom and made hundreds of thousands per year while the median income in their city is very low.
I should link to the thread that describes the whole scam, but I don’t know how.
2. I used to practice bankruptcy law. It was sad for all concerned in the normal cases, where mistakes were made or disaster occurred and the money was insufficient to pay everyone. But it was far worse when people lost their money due to a scam, because a scam entails such callous contempt or disregard for the humanity of the person being conned. Abuse of power and abuse of trust cuts very deep and ruins lives, breaks hearts and disturbs minds.
BTW, in the cases I saw, the scammer was sometimes the debtor, and sometimes someone who scammed the debtor. Different scenarios would play out.
And here's the HTML to do it:

I'd say "income tax" falls into that category.
>>Defrauding laborers of their wages<<
How about the opposite end of that scale? Demanding all the perks that Unions get. Demanding that people be paid to sit on their butts in the “job banks”, or doing as little as possible at work, reading FB or FR on the job, personal emails and correspondence? So an employer doesn’t pay “overtime”? Do they pay “time”? People are lucky to have jobs.
Why only from an evil employers point of view?
I’ve worked tons of jobs where my fellow employees commit the sin of sloth constantly.
It’s not all the big evil employers. Sometimes it’s the lazy employees.
Every time a union achieves a wage rate that is higher than what the free market would pay, it results in a tendency for the market to decrease the average amount of wages to those not in the union.
Its not all the big evil employers. Sometimes its the lazy employees.
I agree totally. A sin against the Fourth Commandment. From a traditional Catholic examination of conscience: http://www.fisheaters.com/penance.html
* Have I been honest in business, including paying my employees a fair wage?
* Do I treat my employees or those I supervise with dignity, respect, and consideration? ~and/or~ Do I give my employer his due and perform my job satisfactorily?
>>From a traditional Catholic examination of conscience<<
Well there’s our problem. I’m sure the people who need that the most would be the least likely to believe anything “traditional”!
Finally, a list that does not point a guilty finger at me. :)
...a scam entails such callous contempt or disregard for the humanity of the person being conned.
I have never been able to understand how someone could enjoy spending money that he got by cheating someone else, especially in cases where the victim’s savings are wiped out.
And everything it leads to.
