"Deadly" Sins

There's Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride...

Does anyone else think it's ironic that Murder is not a deadly sin? Some might say that you can't embody murder. Why not? Hitler did. You can commit murder without breaking ANY of the deadly sins (assuming that you only kill people for fun and only do so in moderation). And conversely all the seven deadly sins usually don't even kill anyone. This is plainly false advertising. Even calling them "cardinal" is retarded because murder should be more important than these other petty sins. We should throw all those slothy bums in jail because christians prefer murderers in the streets... Right?!

Maybe it's because they couldn't allow Resurrection or Creating Life or Zombie Making to be one of the holy virtues because they were afraid that there would be grave diggers, mad scientists, and voodoo priests everywhere. The Virtues are stogy and lifeless where they should instead make life more fun. Spontaneous creation of life would be fucking awesome. It would be a superior virtue.

It might also come down to some superstitious numerological malarky about the number 7. It's a shame that wasting peoples time with arbitrary bullshit wasn't one of the sins either. The people who wrote these dumb rules certainly had their heads up their asses.
