Headline Of The Day: Catholic Church Pardons Galileo – Two Thousand Years Later!

From The Daily Beast and written by Barbie Latza Nadeau:

The Catholic Church has never had a particularly easy relationship with science.  After all, this is the institution that sentenced Galileo Galilei as a heretic for his theories on the universe during the Roman Inquisition. Two thousand years later, the church forgave Galileo and called the whole misunderstanding a “tragic mutual incomprehension” but it remains safe to say the Vatican doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to empirical open-mindedness.

WOW!

The rest of her article goes on to whine about the Catholic Church’s stance on stem cells and stem cell research.  Obviously she was named “Barbie” for a reason.  That isn’t sexist is it?

May take up the rest of her article another time.  By the way – nowhere was it mentioned in her article this was an April Fools joke.  And considering that it was written on March 29th, and still hasn’t been corrected – what does that tell you about the editorial staff over at The Daily Beast?  They ought to invest in one of Michael Medved’s (he writes occasionally for The Daily Beast) history lectures.
