Is the Catholic Church Anti-Science? Galileo Explained – Apologetics #26

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll continue our Apologetics Series by looking at one man in particular: Galileo Galilei. There may not be another singular person who is a source of such controversy throughout the history of the Catholic Church. And, Galileo is the favorite tool that many use to claim that the Church is backwards, anti-science, anti-reason, and more. So what’s the story with Galileo? And why did the Catholic Church react the way she did when Galileo was making his amazing discoveries?
