Clergyman Says Church Owes Darwin An Apology

Charles DarwinAnglican Church’s spokesman said that the church should admit that they have wronged Charles Darwin, because even though his theory of evolution has become a pillar of science it is still considered anti-Christian in some churches.

Marking next year’s 150th anniversary of the book Origin of Species by Charles Darwin Rev. Malcolm Brown wrote “The Church of England owes you an apology for misunderstanding you and, by getting our first reaction wrong, encouraging others to misunderstand you still.”

“There is nothing here that contradicts Christian teaching,” Rev. Brown says, adding that the church’s “reaction now seems misjudged.”

Fundamentalist Christians argue to this day that evolution can’t co-exist with the biblical version of the story on creationism – a belief that has gained new momentum thanks to the Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin who believes children should be taught creationism in addition to evolution in schools.
