Genetically Modified Crops Get Vatican’s Blessing

Pope RatNAZI’s Vatican seldom approves of scientists meddling with God’s creation.

So the decision from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences to approve of the  oft-demonized genetically modified crops as an answer to world hunger and poverty may come as a surprise.

GM crops were endorsed at a week-long seminar held by the academy in mid-May. Participants agreed the crops offer food safety and security, better health and environmental sustainability. However, the verdict is not shared by the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge.

Some say the seminar excluded dissenters within the church who fear that GM technology allows multinationals to control agriculture at the expense of the poor.

    Isn’t this the same douchebag who opposes the use of fertility science to help couples conceive a child? I guess fake food is OK but real babies aren’t? This is why the Catholic church needs to shut the fuck up and focus on relocating pedophile priests.

    Genetically modified crops are a huge danger to poor farmers. Traditionally, they reuse seeds. It is illegal to reuse these seeds. Often, the biotech companies get governments to make farmers pay for their frankenseeds if seeds from other farms contaminate their farms.

  3. Prairiedog says:

    GM seeds are very destructive for the environment.

    For starters, insects like bees and butterflies can’t pollinate them. For another thing, the seeds in the vegetable and fruit crops, are dead. They can’t be planted and used.

    Leave it to the fucking Vatican to get involved in something they have no business signing off on.

  4. Ratzi will say anything for money. Bet Monsanto threw several millions his way. Maybe if the molested kids came up with a few hundred million dollars the church might have properly dealt with the pedophile priests.

    The Pope’s a Dope!

  6. I think that genetically modified crops can be a great help to poor subsistence farmers who don’t get enough food intake. Now admittedly, I am a bit biased, but have done enough reading and research for myself to determine my stance.

    And, although they provide great potential help, if they are used as profit making tools for giant companies, then problems arise. But the basic idea behind genetically modified crops is sound.

  7. Randy Arroyo says:

    GM crops evil.
    The Vatican evil.
    GM crops is to the Vatican like the Vatican is to GM crops.

  8. Ever see Soylent Green? Perhaps a bit extreme, but hey we are talking about the vatican right?

  9. libhomo says:

    scienceguy288: Subsistence farmers can’t afford genetically modified seeds.

  10. Due to the companies who own them; not the fault of the crops in and of themselves.

    So the pope’s boss is Satan for sanctioning the EVIL MONSANTO EMPIRE AND DRACONIAN GMO GLOBAL PROJECT????????????????????????
