The Vatican and Aliens

I don't know whether it's just a coincidence that just as reports uncovering the institutionalized cover-up of the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests in Ireland became public, Vatican officials gathered to discuss the significance that the discovery of alien life might present for Christianity. The bad news might be that the whole religion is demonstrated to be a sham... the good news: new ass to tap :)

But of course, if your religious beliefs are based on the conflicting interpretation of vague and general statements inherited from a virtually illiterate culture with a historical record for being consistently shown to be false, you can become quite creative in how you decide to interpret potentially threatening information and do some pretty amusing mental gymnastics :)
