Catholic Church attempts to widen it's base

From MSNBC here.

Vatican says it's OK to believe in aliens
The Vatican's chief astronomer says that believing in aliens does not contradict faith in God. The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, said that the vastness of the universe means it is possible there could be other forms of life outside Earth, even intelligent ones. In an interview published Tuesday by Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Funes said that such a notion "doesn't contradict our faith" because aliens would still be God's creatures.

Not to be outdone the Scientologists responded with "I told you so" and the Evangelicals quickly added, "as long as they are not gay and don't use contraceptives".

Einstein was right.
