Pope cancels speech at scientific university

Nice to see that the Pope has realized that he's not welcome at a scientific university after agreeing with the Austrian philosopher Paul Feyerabend that: “The church at the time was much more faithful to reason than Galileo himself, and also took into consideration the ethical and social consequences of Galileo’s doctrine. Its verdict against Galileo was rational and just.”

Freedom of speech entitled citizens to speak their mind without being sent to jail. It doesn't entitle them to speak at any forum of any organization that they choose.
