My classmate and friend, Chad Crawford, is a heretic, because he wants church congregations to become energy efficient and lower their carbon footprints (h/t Homebrewed Christianity). Anathema!
Hopefully, this should comfort Chad. The Vatican's stance on Galileo is changing. Seems that 400 years - and an undeniable body of evidence - have softened the hearts of the Catholic Church. They are even considering granting Galileo "Patron" status for the dialogue between faith and reason.
Chad, give it time. You might not be in the eschatological in-group right now, but you will be a cool kid again someday.
