Talk: Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason)

On the economy - "economic policy cannot be guided by a profit-driven mentality alone"...

On the environment - "If you want to cultivate Peace, protect Creation"...

On population control - "population is proving to be an asset, not a factor that contributes to poverty"...

- Pope Benedict XVI

Have you wondered...

Why should the Church be 'meddling' with secular issues? Why hasn't she learn something after Galileo Galilei's incident? Can the Church be reasonable in these secular issues (i.e Can Faith and Reason be compatible)?

If you answered "Yes"...
