Vatican Censored Shock!

The Vatican has cancelled a trip to an Italian university saying:

the protest at La Sapienza had a “censorious tone”

The protest, naturally enough, were regarding the Pope’s view that the trial of Galileo in 1633 was “rational and just”. The result of the trial, of course, was that the church placed Galileo under house-arrest, and banned the printing of his work to ensure that no-one could read it.

On the other hand, the university is simply saying “we don’t want you here”. No one has banned the Pope from voicing his views — and, for that matter, the university itself didn’t ban the Pope, he elected to cancel his visit. But it’s the university that’s the censor because the Pope doesn’t want bad PR? These really are deluded f*ckwits.
