Accessory to a Sin

Another specimen my collection of explain it all frameworks.

By way of Making Light this list of nine ways to you can be an accessory to a sin.

  • By counsel.
  • By command.
  • By consent.
  • By provocation.
  • By praise or flattery.
  • By concealment.
  • By partaking.
  • By silence.
  • By defense of the ill done.

This is actually one of a family of frameworks from the Catholic community; ways to keep the conscious vigorous.

For example here’s another your seven capital sins.

  • Pride
  • Covetousness
  • Lust
  • Anger
  • Gluttony
  • Envy
  • Sloth

Just by intersecting those seven with the first nine you get 63 ways to get into trouble.

Generally Americans are a forgiving lot. Nixon can be McCarthy’s righthand man or Bush can waste his youth and latter we make them president. It’s almost required that our celebrities spend time in rehab so we can forgive them and welcome them back on the stage. We tend not to keep score about this stuff.

Sometimes, though!
