If your sin’s original

Why are things so screwed up? The more I think about it, the more I feel like blaming two naked humans and a snake.

    Damn you. Your title has The Vatican Rag by Tom Lehrer stuck in my head: “Time to transubstantiate!”

    Some people call original sin a doctrine. I call it job security.

    Well, it does seem to have hung around for several millennia.

    My “neighborhood” seems to be populated by roughly equal numbers of people who give a damn and people who don’t. Fortunately we’re a little more than arm’s length from each other so it doesn’t matter.

    I’ve read theologians who suggest that nearly all of what we call sin can be traced to simple selfishness, and I’m inclined to agree. I suppose “not giving a damn” can be seen as a form of selfishness.
