Awaiting the fun

This should be fun.
Galileo statue to be placed on Vatican grounds
I can only imagine the consternation of the "religion" reporters as their computer's crash when they try to merge the "Catholics and Science" and the "Worship Statues" templates.
Vatican, Mar. 4, 2008 (CWNews.com) - A statue of Galileo will be placed in the Vatican gardens, outside the apartment where the astronomer was lodged while he awaiting trial on heresy charges in 1633.

The placement of the statue, underwritten by private donors, is intended as a tribute from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nicla Cabibbo, the president of the Academy, explained: "The Church wants to close the the Galileo affair and reach a definitive understanding not only of his great legacy but also of the relationship between science and faith."
Perhaps the mangled mess following the merging of those two templates will actually be coherent. Imagine alternating words from each. "The Vatican condemns worshiping science or placing statues above reason, Galileo assents to teaching of Church."

Join in the fun, give me your best headline for the confusion this is going to cause.
