Wicked? By your own moral standard or the church's?

Incredible. Not to rise to the 'honorable' cardinal's defense, but it bothers me that some of you guys have called him evil. I take exception with that. Evil itself is 'supernatural' and is no more real than god and arguably wouldn't even exist as a myth if theism and other religions didn't exist. Using the word evil to denounce clergy actions, no matter how haneous those actions are, indirectly acknowledges the existance of 'evil' thereby acknowledging the existance of god. Do we really want to give the church credibility that they don't deserve?

Metch, science's problem is that it only has fact on its side. It wouldn't need protecting if 'faith' were on its side too... Just look how long faith alone has carried the creationist agenda for millennia... with NO substantive fact.

*ugh*
