Pope to Meet With Former Theology Students on Evolution

Reuters: Pope Benedict will meet with his former theology students on Friday for a private weekend debate on evolution and religion, an issue conservative Christians have turned into a political cause in the United States.

However, a clear signal that the upcoming meetings may not be all the denizens of the Discovery Institute and William Dembski's Uncommon Descent blog hope they will be, Father Stephan Horn, a German theologian who is organizing the Pope's meeting, says "It has nothing to do with creationism. Catholic theology does not endorse creationist views."

Moreover, the Reuters article quotes Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, one of the two main speakers at the meeting, as having said last week."The possibility that the Creator used evolution as a tool is completely acceptable for the Catholic faith."
