A nice example of the beauty of catholicism. Hypnotizingly subtle. Everything is open to interpretation, to a point, then all is drawn back to the love of god. Thus there are never any contradictions to worry about defending.

I did find this slightly amusing

re. John Paul II statement "the church, for very good reasons...It trails behind in making a declaration like this. It trails behind by too long a period of time in absorbing scientific culture and then judging it and speaking out on it."

How about because religion is irrelevant to scientific endeavors. Which is what the good Fr. said, but then said god's hand is in all things, but he doesn't intervene, except for the virgin birth and ressurection...and on and on..."You're getting very sleepy."
