Our sixth Deadly Sin, Sloth, is defined as physical or spiritual laziness. In the Christian faith, sloth rejects grace and God. Sloth has also been defined as a failure to do things that one should do. By this definition, evil exists when good men fail to act.

Tonight’s tune is The Importance of Being Idle by Oasis: “My best friend called me the other night He said, “Man, are you crazy” ? My girlfriend told me to get a life She said, “Boy, you’re lazy”. But I don’t mind as long as there’s a bed. Beneath the stars that shine. I’ll be fine if you give me a minute A man’s got a limit. I can’t get a life if my heart’s not in it, hey, hey“.
