In the South of Ireland, the history we learn at school is sure to not contain any treaties, that would in anyway put the British in a good light. I suppose many belive these treaties, to be just bullshit. Teachers teach, as if they dont exist. To explain even further how biased my education was, all EU countries were on our geography cirruculum, except England.

Sins
People not recycling.

It's similar here at home. The English-speaking provinces teach one thing about Canadian history, whereas Quebec takes a completely different approach.

Also a sin: Mullets + cowboy boots + a diamond stud

I think in Ireland we want peace, more than we want our sensitivities pandered to. At least the less extreme(which is most) people do.
The treaties and agreements in Northern Ireland happen. We dont read them. We dont talk about them. We just sigh, and ask if there will be peace now. Peace is good, but is there any need to talk about what needed to be agreed upon to achieve it. Maybe some feel resentful, that we have to make agreements at all, with England, about what is to happen in our country. But if we dont, there will be no peace.
Probably something like that in Canada too?
People just want to sort out the problem, but dont fully accept the solution in their minds.
BTW, I am not speaking for certain about all Irish people. I am just guessing at why it is all like it is.

Sin
Paying a lot of money, for unattractive clothes.

Forum shouting is a sin.
Meaning the overuse of bold, underling and capitals.
