The Catholic Church: Taking a Step Backward

I was encouraged a few years ago when Pope John Paul II declared that evolutionary ideas were not incompatible with Catholicism. Although I am not a Catholic, I know many who are, and I was glad to see the Church guiding them toward this rational position. I am convinced that religion and science need not be in perpetual conflict. Now, however, it appears that conservative forces within the Church are moving the faith away from its sound and reasonable views on this issue. The unfortunate details are in here.
