London, Feb 18 (ANI): When it comes to sin, there is no sexual equality, says a new study, which suggests that men are most likely to commit lustful misdeeds whereas women are beholden to pride.
According to the study approved by the Vatican, men's souls end up being pelted with fire and brimstone, while the women's souls are more likely to be broken on a wheel, reports The Times.
Monsignor Wojciech Giertych, personal theologian to Pope Benedict XVI and the papal household, said there was "no sexual equality" when it came to sin.
"Men and women sin in different ways," he wrote in L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper.
For men, pride ranks only at No 5, and they are likely to have indulged in so much lust and gluttony that they are too slothful to feel angry, proud, envious or avaricious.
On the other hand, women are not averse to lust, but are primarily occupied with pride, envy and anger.
"When you look at vices from the point of view of the difficulties they create you find that men experiment in a different way from women," Monsignor Giertych said. (ANI)
