First the article:
THE Vatican seldom approves of scientists meddling with God's creation. So the decision of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences to back
oft-demonised genetically modified crops as an answer to world hunger and poverty may come as a surprise.
GM crops were heartily endorsed at a week-long seminar held by the academy in mid-May. Participants agreed that the crops offer food safety and
security, better health and environmental sustainability. That verdict is not shared by the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge,
Science and Technology for Development, a global UN-backed think tank that last year rejected GM as a solution to hunger.
Some say the seminar excluded dissenters within the church who fear that GM technology allows multinationals to control agriculture at the expense of
the poor. But participants deny bias: they also concluded that regulations are too strict, so only big companies can afford to get GM crops approved,
whereas non-profit organisations that want to help the poor cannot.

If these kind of declaration weren't so dangerous they would be humorous.
Someone at the Vatican' been watching Angels and Demons once too many times and decided to "bless" us with their scientific expertise.
Just as we keep discovering all the negative economic, physical, ecological, emotional (see Indian farmer suicides), and societal affects that GM
crops rain down on our world the Vatican decides that they are a good idea.
Never mind all the evidence, the fact that country after country is making them illegal, and that even the UN, our NWO friends, are against them.
So let's wrap up the Catholic church's advice ...
Have more children and feed them with GM crops!
