Re: The Seven Deadly Sins Character Match-Up

I am not sure. There can be several reasons. First: the whole thing about deadly sins is a medieval idea. Sexuality was not exactly liberal. And Wiki sais originally these "thou shall not"-rules applied mainly to monks. Second: I think the word "lust" today has slightly changed its meaning. Today it is more related to joy, in a physical way as well. But then it was more about uncontrolled desire in an immoral sense and with that often the cause of breaking rules.
