Vatican Adds to List of Sins

"(Within bioethics) there are areas where we absolutely must denounce some violations of the fundamental rights of human nature through experiments and genetic manipulation whose outcome is difficult to predict and control,"

Worded like this, it makes it seem as though bioengineers are trying to compete with religion, which through medieval times had a near monopoly on attempts to re-program human nature in ways that have been difficult to predict or control.

More sins! Are they retroactive or just from this date forward? -Man! Just when I was getting good, too.

I guess I won't be messing around with genetic experimentation any more.

They don't really say whether "genetic manipulation" applies only to humans, or whether they're against frankenfoods, too.

As always, the Catholic church is at the vanguard of backwardness. Yet another reason why my "religion" is what I choose it to be.
