Sex Columnist Re-Examines Seven Deadly Sins

The concept of the seven deadly sins has been around since the Middle Ages, telling people what behavior they should avoid. In 2001, syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage decided to investigate Americans who personify the Seven Deadly Sins and defend their right to choose their vices. Savage joins NPR's Steve Inskeep to talk about the result of his project: Skipping Towards Gomorrah.
