Galileo, Science and Religion

Three centuries ago, Italian scientist, Galileo was publicly denounced by a Catholic priest. He had been dubbed an enemy of true religion. And he would be remembered as the man that started the debate regarding the separation of science and religion. Joseph Loconte talks about the relationship between science and religion -- a relationship which at one time had been interfused. Loconte is the William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society at the Heritage Foundation.
