The Vatican on science
Many of the articles I read, this drivelling piece of framing in particular, have thrown either single or multiple bricks at the Church for its purported aversion to science. It's been and still is poppycock. That doesn't mean the Church hasn't made mistakes but I'll bet if you put the Church up against, say, the Royal Society, I think you find many more examples of resistance to new scientific findings with the latter and I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few persecutions arising from there too.
It's nice to see but, the folks praising the Chruch now for this will be back to beating Her up about being ag'in science next month.
