Question by Newell: I say Cath. Church accepts evolution. Others say no. Read below and tell me who is right?
In an October 22, 1996, address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Pope John Paul II updated the Church’s position to accept evolution of the human body:
“In his encyclical Humani Generis (1950), my predecessor Pius XII has already affirmed that there is no conflict between evolution and the doctrine of the faith regarding man and his vocation, provided that we do not lose sight of certain fixed points….Today, more than a half-century after the appearance of that encyclical, some new findings lead us toward the recognition of evolution as more than a hypothesis. In fact it is remarkable that this theory has had progressively greater influence on the spirit of researchers, following a series of discoveries in different scholarly disciplines. The convergence in the results of these independent studies – which was neither planned nor sought – constitutes in itself a significant argument in favor of the theory.”
Ah, actually you are 100% wrong. You must not be Catholic. The Church has made a distinction between the homosexual act and being a homosexual. This is like last night when you told me only Catholics could be in the Army. You have some goofy ideas.

I believe the Roman Catholic church has accepted Evolution as a fact. Only after they couldn’t deny its absolute truth any longer. Now they play this bit where they try to say Evolution is compatible with their religion, doesn’t go against it…whatever…just shit coming out of peoples mouths in my opinion.
