Seven Deadly American Values

The Seven Deadly Sins have been repurposed as the new Seven American Values: "We're number one! (Pride) You can have it all! (Greed) Sex sells! (Lust) I just want to be famous on TV! (Envy) All you can eat! (Gluttony) The world owes everything to me! (Sloth) If any bad guys stand in my way, well, bring 'em on! (Anger).

- Wayne Muller, A Life of Being, Having, and Doing Enough (Three Rivers Press, 2011)
