Scandal is any action or omission that, even though not necessarily sinful in itself, is likely to induce sin by someone else. It is from the Latin word "scandalum", meaning "stumbling block."

There are two types of scandal. "Direct scandal" deliberately intends to cause sin by another, such as selling pornography. Indirect scandal merely increases the likelihood of sin by another, such as selling alcohol.
