Vatican Absolves Aliens
In May of 2008, Reverend Jose Gabriel Funes, The Pope's cheif astronomer stated that it is acceptable to believe in aliens and that it in no way contradicts their view of God.
This includes, Funes asserted in an interview for the Vatican official newspaper, intelligent creatures free from original sin.
"God became man in Jesus in order to save us. So if there are also other intelligent beings, it's not a given that they need redemption. They might have remained in full friendship with their creator," he said.
To paraphrase, the Catholic church, easily in the top 5 most conservative institutions in the entire world, the one that, over the ages, decried the heliocentric view of the universe,who waged many wars with disbelievers, costing countless lives, and fought Darwinian evolution vehimently up until this century, has told its parishioners that aliens are friends.
Quite an unlikely progressive leap for the organization to even voluntarily bring up the subject. But somehow, for some reason they felt the time was right. But there you have it, Catholics: Aliens probably exist. And they don't need to follow any version of your religion. The social axiety aliens have for so long sufferred by the abject denial of existence is finally corrected. Single parents, contraceptive users, jews, muslims, gays, there's still hope for you yet.
In addition to the Vatican's admission, world governments have begun to take unprecidented steps in disseminating previously classified information about UFO sightings and alien contact. Including searchable public websites run by the French government and efforts by other Western governments (not U.S. so much) to do the same. Russia, as well, is due to release substantial case studies this year.
If I didn't know any better, I could say the synchronization of these events prologues something in the near future. I invite you to make what you will of it, however.
