Vatican Astronomer: “I broke up with THEM first.”

On August 19th, Monkey Fartz reported that Jesuit Father George Coyne was dumped by Pope Benedict XVI over differences of opinion regarding the Vatican’s position on Intelligent Design (link). In a written statement submitted on September 8th, Father Coyne contends that he was going to break up with the Vatican ANYWAY but didn’t want to do it during the August Holy Days (link)…which are always a tough time to break up.

The Vatican has not commented, but quickly jumped in to what many insiders are calling a “Rebound Astronomer”, Dr. Jose Gabriel Funes (link). “This guy GETS me,” Pope Benedict XVI is reported to have said, “He’s not always challenging me with that ‘science’ nonsense.”
