According to Google, gluttony is considered a sin by Christians, and frowned upon by Muslims and Buddhists, and probably by most religions. Just google "Is gluttony considered a sin by.............." to find out.
By the way, the correct way to ask your Dutch question is "Wat is het antwoord voor deze vraag?"

Graag gedaan. If you're not sure when to use "dit" instead of "deze" , try entering "dit versus deze" in the Discussion search box to get some explanations.

It's one of the seven deadly sins.

The question just may refer to controversies about how to rightly represent the Latin catalogue of deadly sins in venecular languages. I know the congregation in France challenged local translations, and insisted that "gourmandaise" was a mistranslation, and that the real deadly sin was eating to excess (gluttonny) rather than taking excessive joy in eating with moderation (gourmandaise, feinschmeckerrei). In a Dutch context, Jean Calvin rages against lekkereien, suggesting that to Calvinists, gourmandaise is indeed a serious sin.

Note : En Fran├žais nous parlons de gourmandise et non de 'gourmandaise'. (You may want to add the language in your system in order to benefit from the automatic correction in French too
