The trouble the Cardinal ran into is the modern world, itself, where he has to deal with facts. It was so much easier when the Church could just make things up (e.g. Original Sin) and people had to believe those things with no means of checking for truth. Well, that was then, and this is now.

Absolutely. Which is why education - especially training in critical thinking - is so important in the battle against religion and other superstition.
