Don't tell me, Father Ripperger that smoking isn't a sin, because it is.

Do you even know Fr. Ripperger? Your tone is rather condescending towards him, as if you think he couldn't possibly know what he's talking about.

His point was that it was an uncatholic view to think that it is the tobacco itself that is a source of some kind of evil. It's the human condition that makes it a problem. Addiction is a harder problem for some people than for others but in the end it is a human problem, not a tobacco problem. Tobacco in and of itself is not capable of being evil, and therefore smoking it can not be a sin just because it can become addictive. That's a puritan view.

If someone is addicted in an incapacitating fashion to something like nicotine then smoking would be sinful for them, not for everyone.
