Vatican unapologetic

They're not going to apologize to Charles Darwin, for what, I'm not sure, but it's got liberals frothing. I'm not sure when the Church became the archdemon of anti-science but the Church doesn't even oppose evolution. It merely opposes atheism wrapped under the guise of evolution, trying to mask philosophy with the veneer of scientific objectivity. It even says it in the article: "It objects to using evolution as the basis for an atheist philosophy that denies God's existence or any divine role in creation."

It seems that the only time we hear about the Catholic Church is when its being called upon to account for its many crimes against humanity. Apologize for its pro-life stance; apologize for its abstinence policy in Africa; apologize for its stance on chastity, and on and on. Don't these people realize that their criticisms don't make any sense? On one hand, we hear that the Church advocates outdated teachings that nobody cares about anymore. Why are they wasting time promoting abstinence? Don't they know that never works? On the other hand, they get raked over the coals for not endorsing those things, as if what they said mattered! But if what they said does indeed carry weight, then the fact that they do tell people to do certain things, like practice abstinence and not have reckless sex, should have some import.
