“You know what you’re doing is a sin,” her mother said.

My girlfriend lived with me.  For years.  Years of sinning.  But, like most couples, we had times when the sexual coupling was less frequent.

She told me after a visit with her mother that her mother had said what we were doing was a sin.

“Tell your mother that maybe we aren’t sinning as much in reality as we are in her imagination,” I replied.

After a time we stopped coupling and she moved out, and the sinning stopped.

At least with her.

I went to a Catholic elementary school for nine years where “I’m telling Ma!” was replaced with “That’s a sin!”  The moral code was spelled out pretty clearly in the Baltimore Catechism that I studied in Saint Gregory’s Grammar School.

So…I’ve heard the word before.  I understand the concept.  Acts can be sins, thoughts can be sins.
