And they were doing so well....

In the past, I've praised the Catholics for their support for good science. But it seems that they're still not there.

It seems that Cardinal Alfonso López Trujillo is wanting to excommunicate any catholic that is involved in stem cell research: "Excommunication will be applied to the women, doctors and researchers who eliminate embryos [and to the] politicians that approve the law."

I think the last quote of the article is one of the best I've ever read though:
"This amounts to religious persecution of scientists," says Julian Savulescu, an ethicist at the University of Oxford. "Presumably God will be the one to judge the scientists, not Church leaders."
