    One thing that kept sticking out for me in Western Civ class when I learned about the history of the church was how well Sarah Palin et al. would've fit in back then.  Rabidly anti-science and pro everything I hate.

      Sarah Palin would have had no way to be an influential being in the Middle Ages ... unless she had been born to royalty .. and even then she would have just been a pawn in marriage game - she hasn't demonstrated that she has the intelligence to have been any kind of influential person ...
      Most of the influential women were nuns, like Catherine of Siena and Saint Teresa of Avila or Clare of assisi ...or the Abbesses who presided over coed convents through the Middle ages

      maybe Sarah could have been a Saint Joan, although I don't see Sarah sticking with the call ;-)  

      And as for the Church being rabidly anti-science, it is important to read all the facts regarding these debates ...
      the controversy over a helio centric world vs a geocentric one was more over the philosophical problems that would be presented that over the science ...

      Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
