Leading Cardinal Redefines Church's View on Evolution - New York Times: "An influential cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, which has long been regarded as an ally of the theory of evolution, is now suggesting that belief in evolution as accepted by science today may be incompatible with Catholic faith."
My heart sank when I read yesterday's op-ed by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn advocating Intelligent Design. But, hey, I thought, it's just one deluded cardinal, thinking small, putting God into a box he can understand.
No such luck. He's an apparently influential theologian with the Pope's ear. If this is to be Catholic doctrine, then it is one that I reject completely. God isn't threatened by science.
