galileoarp300pix.jpgSome readers may remember my post criticizing the attempt to mainstream transsexuality in California and the responses it garnered from a transsexual advocate. This advocate, named “Marti”, began by saying that it did not surprise him/her/it that such an unscientific view would come from one whose Church took 300 years to admit that Galileo was right, or somesuch nonsense.

The old canard about the Church condemning Galileo’s theory of heliocentrism is one which, like the Whore of Babylon and the KofC’s Secret Oath, never seems to go away.

Dinesh D’Souza writes a good piece in favor of a proper understanding of history, one which should now be considered required reading by anyone considering trolling my blog in the future.
