What great sin is it that Lance Armstrong has committed?

Performance enhancement?

What sin is that in a society that pumps its children full of ADHD medications to enhance educational performance and pumps its financial institutions full of moral hazard, worships teams of steroid gladiators on any given Sunday, pumps it's economy full of QE and fiat stimulus like there is no tomorrow, consumes food modified by all manner of genetic, hormonal and chemical agents, is addicted to $8 cups of coffee, idolizes silicon breast implantation for the perfect female form and consumes viagra voraciously.

A society that can no longer function without the mass consumption of psychotropic drugs.
One can only wonder...

It's one thing to give a kid medicine for ADHD. It's another thing to give a kid medicine for ADHD and tell the kid's parents that the medicine is actually a vitamin or herbal supplement. It's yet another thing to threaten, sue, or somehow attempt to intimidate someone who tells that kid's parents that the "vitamin" isn't a vitamin at all but is actually a drug.

Lying, cheating, scamming, bullying, cunning, conniving, deceit, conning, slandering, bearing false witness, covering up, threating witnesses, attacking people's characters, protecting wrong doers, tempting others, modeling poor/questionable behavior and generally behaving above the law.

I'm sure there are many other sins for which he is guilty, but I think this is a reasonable start.

I am at the left of the political spectrum, but you may friend are sliding off the deep end.

You are also pretty thick.

That's if he was just stupid enough to use PED's, who cares, except that he "stole" money from the clean (if there were any) cyclists.
But, he threatened people. He sounds more like some kind of criminal on SVU than an athlete.
