We've Come A Long Way Since Galileo

Long time visitors to The Middle Room know we have a complex relationship with the Vatican. We have reached out to their organization on a number of issues and have attempted to find middle ground and compromise.

To this day, they have yet to hear our call and do what's right... but that is another issue, and we shall not dwell on it now. Likewise, the church has yet to offer any official apology or explanation of any kind for their involvement in last April's debacle. But then, that wasn't really their fault, and we certainly haven't heard a word of regret from the CW, who we hold ultimately responsible.

Until recently, we were beginning to suspect that the Church wasn't even reading our words. It even seemed possible, however unlikely, that they were unaware of our presence.

Fortunately, that no longer seems to be the case. In what we can only assume is a olive branch to geeks, the Vatican has just affirmed that Superman is entirely compatible with Catholicism. This in no way surprises us, of course, though it is nice to see it so officially acknowledged.

Yes, every extraterrestrial from the Predator to Darkseid is made in God's image. We in The Middle Room would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the Vatican for eliminating any possible confusion.
