A Word to my Christian Brothers and Sisters

This guy really nails it with his test based on the Seven Cardinal Virtues and the Seven Deadly Sins.   

In deadly sins (Gluttony, Avarice, Pride, Sloth, Anger, Lust, Envy)  our president is seven for seven. 

In virtues — and this guy’s list is a little idiosyncratic (Truth, Love [agape type], Courage, Wisdom, Tolerance, Freedom, Creativity [1]) the president’s score is much lower.   

Check this guy out, he gives a pretty good test in about two and a half minutes.

After Pope Gregory released his list of seven deadly sins in AD 590, the seven virtues became identified as chastitytemperancecharitydiligencepatiencekindness, and humility. Practicing them is said to protect one against temptation from the seven deadly sins.
